What with all this Christmas and holiday talk, we’re all supposed to wear red and green, sparkles and metallics, and all sorts of fancy things, right? It looks great in photos and at holiday parties (of which I attended none..), but it never felt quite right for work. That being said, I will be sharing a few holiday workwear thoughts next Monday (yes, after Christmas – gasp – but before New Years).
In any case, I opted to pick just one color from the festive color palette and landed on this very green combination. And while wearing green, I actually saved myself a good bit of green too. I made an environmentally “green” choice opting for both a secondhand dress and coat. I saved some “green” paying rock bottom prices for these name brand secondhand pieces. And I topped off my thrifty finds with a pair of boots and a cardigan that have been remixing champs in my closet for as long as we’ve been in a style relationship.
For those intrigued by colored tights at work, I added this olive green color to my collection and today’s outfit is my first execution with the new shade. Under boots and with more green, it’s a pretty subtle option and one that could work for most people at work. We chatted more about colored tights when I wore these burgundy ones not long ago, so stop on over for some tips if you’re interested.
Have you worn any loosely inspired holiday style (that doesn’t necessarily scream Christmas and holiday parties)? Was any of it thrifted?
Dress – Magaschoni (thrifted via Goodwill); Cardigan – Banana Republic;
Coat – DKNY (thrifted via Salvation Army); Boots – Aerosoles; Scarf – self-made
So what’s not to love about this long blazer from Bogi at Red Reticule?! I think it completes this outfit perfectly. And the winter white of the blazer with the blush shirt feels like a perfectly pastel winter combination. She’s got more chic style, so pop on over to check it out.
