WIW - 2 recent office-y looks

First - a rant: So i redid my hair and it lasted for...a week. I don't even wash my hair everyday! So i am redoing tonight and then after that i think it's back to basic brown. I don't have time to redo highlights every week nor do i want to! Plus unlike the box dye that i use it makes me clarify my hair so it's thirsty and i already have dry hair. I can't be clarifying it every week. @_@

Outfit 1: I wore something extremely similar to this before so i guess this is *kinda* a remix (i'm still a little unsure about that term...). Haven't worn this blazer in awhile and i am all about shoppin' that closet right now.

Outfit 2: Worn today. I don't really care for big bows but i am a sucker for bold stripes and sheer clothing. I'm planning on wearing this top tomorrow too but i'm going to grungify (i like to make up words) it up for a weekend look.

    Sorry to hear about your hair issues. I'm struggling with that a bit myself.

    LOVE your outfits. #1 is fab top to toe. I adore the striped blouse in #2!

  • christy replied 11 years ago

    Sorry about the hair! :( Hair woes are never fun. But it looks fab every color I've seen you in!

    I adore both of these outfits. Love the way you toughen up the sweet jacket with that dangerous looking necklace in #1! The shoes are a fun pop of color. And I might come steal that striped top from you...you wouldn't notice if it went missing would you? :) You look so great in those red pants. I have to admit that I love the cropped pants that are out there right now and you wear this so well. Love the low contrast shoe with it. And your poses are always so darn cute! :)

    Both stunning outfits Nicole - but that second outfit with the red trousers and striped bowed blouse makes me a bit lightheaded with its fabulocity (see...I make up words too)!

  • Kiwichik replied 11 years ago

    Shame about the hair but to coin a phrase from Shannon the fabulosity of your style has not been dimmed by the challenge of maintaining your highlights.
    Fab looks.

    I just was noting one of your responses about work/career wear in another thread and how you "make it your own" and here are two excellent examples of that.
    Love the shoes in number one paired with slim pants and the red/orange slouchy pants with striped top - just incredible.

    Sorry the pink highlights won't be around anymore :(

    Oh my gosh... swooning! These are both such great examples of office appropriate, but true to personal style outfits. You. are. a. rockstar.

  • Deborah replied 11 years ago

    Shame about hair issue but wow! Two awesome outfits. I love both of these, you own these looks:)

    #2 is particularly special in my books.

  • MNsara replied 11 years ago

    You'd be so fun to have in an office! I'd be waiting just to see what you're wearing to work each day!

    You look adorable in both, but I am partial to #2 with that taupe/black stripe shirt and those orange trousers. Smart choice to wear nude peep toes :-)

  • Angie replied 11 years ago

    Both outfits are KILLER. This is how to rock cropped pants at that tricky length! *blowing you kisses*

    And I pinned both looks :)

  • cheryl replied 11 years ago

    That first pic, seriously could you look any more fantastic! Second one is great too. I hear ya on the hair, mine hasn't wanted to hold any color lately either.

  • goldenpig replied 11 years ago

    Dots, studs, fangs, stripes...could you get any more fab?

    I seriously covet that polka dot blazer!

  • replied 11 years ago

    I love both. Perfect.

  • Meredith1953 replied 11 years ago

    I love both your outfis! So cute and playful.

  • sarah replied 11 years ago

    These are GREAT, Nicole. I love that striped bow top on you with the red. FAB.

  • nicoleb replied 11 years ago

    Thanks so much ladies!

    Christyg - i would most definitely notice! :D Thanks so much! You should get a pair of cropped pants too if you love them!

    Shannon - Fabulocity! Love it!

    christieanne - thanks for noticing. ;) it's not something that happened overnight. I often struggle to find work appropriate pieces that are also my style and sometimes end up spending a bit more. Though that's not the case with either of these outfits, so yay!

    k can shop - thanks so much!

    Angie - aww thanks so much Angie! Good to know i'm floating out in the Pinterest world some more :D

    goldenpig - the blazer was one of my first thrift store finds! Makes it even more special!
