OTS at the Workplace + Topshop Sale Picks

The best thing I can do to get over Monday morning blues is to wear a kickass outfit. Not only does it uplift my mood, but I find that looking good also helps me focus on work better. For today’s look, I could not wait to wear one of my new favorite OTS tops, but I had to get a little creative to make it work appropriate. Enter wardrobe staple #1 – the silky white shirt. I’ve styled this piece 3 times (HERE, HERE and HERE) in the past. While layering is not the first thought on my mind when it’s summer (and 100 degrees outside), I’m always cold at work anyway so it worked out quite well.

Wardrobe staple #2 are these trousers from DKNY that I can literally sleep in. They never fail to make me feel like a total bo$$. I added my new sunglasses from Tory Burch and completed the look with my favorite gray pumps (wardrobe staple #3). I love how a little creativity to basic wardrobe pieces can transform a Monday!

Topshop is having a major sale on some great summer staples. I’ve linked my favorites below!

  1. The asymmetrical skirt you picked out is really interesting. I feel like you could pair that with any basic piece from your wardrobe and still make a statement! I wonder what it looks like on? Too bad my local Topshop is 35 minutes away from me!

  2. Looking at this post, I need to step up my game lol. I adore the way you’ve layered the top. Something I would have never thought to do!
