Most people who know me would probably say I'm pretty conservative. For the the most part...this is true. Sometimes, though, with certain things, I like to shake things up a bit. For example, for some reason, I really like to try to take things a person may not normally wear to work and make them work appropriate. So far, the one key that seems to work best is pairing a nice blazer with a look. I think besides that, the key is keeping your outfit edgy while still looking appropriate. For example, you can wear a casual skirt like the one below a lot easier than you could wear a mini or super tight pencil skirt, or a low cute button down shirt.
Here's what I wore earlier this week:
This skirt is probably more likely to be worn to a casual outdoor event than to a bank for a 9-5, but for some reason, it seems to work. I think the longer length of the skirt paired with the blazer and the neutral heels make the look slightly more appropriate than how I would wear it during the day - with a white tank top and espadrilles.
