What to Wear to Work

OutfitLindsey Cavanaugh2 Comments

Working it Monday - Friday.

In 2016, the working girl uniform has definitely shifted from traditional routes – especially in LA. Many of my friends work for their own businesses or start-ups with a laid-back company culture and dress code. However, looking sharp for your day to day ALWAYS key as you never know what will come up.

I've partnered with Express to share one of my favorite Wear to Work looks. My style mantra for work dressing is BE COMFORTABLElook smart. You don’t have to feel like you're playing dress up wearing a bland dress and heels.

Add in some funk and opt for your own personal style twist that showcases your personality while looking polished. Some ideas:

  • Sneakers with a pencil skirt
  • A casual tee with a blazer and slacks
  • A bomber jacket over a dress
  • Pin embellishments adding a casual touch to a serious look

For my look, I paired a black blazer with a white, distressed tee, and The Editor ankle pant. I added some personality to my look with pin embellishment (see similar HERETHESE super comfortable suede ankle strap heels are a MUST in your wardrobe on and off the clock.

Moral of the message - have fun with your work style! Shop looks from Express HERE.

Thank you to Express for partnering with me on this post.

Colorblock boyfriend jeans for the win. 

I know it's the dead of summer, but I'm already craving fall—mainly for the clothes. The teasers that I've been seeing from the fashion world, like crushed velvet, statement trenches, one-shoulder tops, plus the new outlook on denim, has me beyond ready for September.

My personal style is a hint of city, a hint of beach (hence Something Beachy) and denim is my favorite staple to play around with. Speaking of, I recently partnered with Express to style my favorite jean look. They have an updated approach to the California classic and are killing it. But seriously, I hopped into a store recently and was blown away by their revised style and product line. They've stepped up their game in a major way!

I'm especially loving color-blocked girlfriend jeans, like the ones I choose for these shots. They provide a coolness that takes the mom jean factor out of some girlfriend styles. And this billowy, feminine, peasant Express Edition blouse served as the perfect complement to soften this masculine denim.

I really appreciate that Express' design, cut, and fit of their jeans is ultra flattering. It can be impossible to find jeans that fit my longer legs, but I didn't have a problem when shopping there.

I couldn't help myself and also picked up a velvet crop top and black lace-up bodysuit that will be in constant rotation come fall.

I have a feeling I'll be back at Express real soon. Can't wait!
