1 MONTH OF BUSINESS CASUAL OUTFIT IDEAS Pt. 2


SEE PART 1  HERE!
* FOR MORE FORMAL, PROFESSIONAL DRESS CODES – NO JEANS *

WELCOME, BOSS BABES!!! Thank you so much for watching Part 2 of my 1 MONTH Work Wear Series! The focus of this video was to create a more casual, creative version of Part 1 for the Business Casual and Smart Casual office environments out there. Personally, when I was working in corporate, I had a decently relaxed dress code. I would wear dark jeans or a comfy dress with my favorite heels practically every day, so this Part 2 video was near and dear to my heart. The goal was expand on some of the same topics covered in Part 1, while also introducing new ideas to inspire creativity in your work wardrobe. A more lenient dress code allows for more personal expression, so why not have some fun with it!?

I hope you really enjoy the second chapter of this series. I can almost tear up thinking about the hours poured into planning, curating, researching, shooting and editing these two videos. The outpouring of love has been one of the most touching things ever in my life. I gave up my corporate career to pursue my dream on YouTube, and ironically these work videos have defined my channel. To be able to harness my work experience and love for fashion into helping others is a blessing I do not take lightly. Thank you for sharing this experience with me. I hope you can take some new things away from this one. I love you so much, you guys. ENJOY!!! xoxo -E

    Love everything about this post!! <3

    However, I'd prefer if you state if the outfit links attached are actual or options more clearly. I'd really like to know where the actual outfits are from even if unavailable eg. the Navy high waisted trousers look amazing but the option is actually pitch black, looks different and it wasn't stated as an option.

    Thanks love you!!

    Hi,
    can you post the exact pair of high waisted navy pants? the pair at express are not the same that you had on. Great alternative though just like the single button on each side version. thanks

    Do you always stick to petite clothes or just regular sizes? I can’t find half as nice options in petite over in the UK but there’s no way regular trousers or jumpsuits, or even shirts, would fit me (I’m only 5 feet tall….).

    Love the posts ??
