Business

Most outfits can be worn a variety of occasions.  Because it was purchased for work doesn’t make it exempt for church, a graduation, a business meeting or anywhere else for that mater. Now there will be some pieces of course that are inappropriate or not not meant to be worn to certain places. That’s where dressing the part is important.

Yes, it’s spring, but I prefer a comfy pair of pants over a skirt. Not a huge fan of wearing skirts.  Don’t get me wrong, I like skirts & I do wear them, not often though.

I was on the hunt for a pair of brown, tan or nude pumps & I was able to find these at Target for a reasonable price.  One of the good things about the shoe is the fact that they are rubber on the bottom which is great for comfort & traction when walking on slippery surfaces.  Have you ever see women slip while walking in their shoes?  It’s due to the lack of traction. Shoes without rubber soles are more risky to walk in. Leather is my preference, but the for the price they were worth it until I am able to locate a pair of leather ones I just can’t leave without.

Business

Work or church outfit using items from my current wardrobe.  Typically the clothes I wear to work are not worn to church & vice versa, but not in this case. Certain outfits can serve multiple purposes. I’m a huge believer in dressing appropriately for the occasion; one must look the part. Hey, if the dress code calls for business or business casual attire, honor the request & wear what’s required, but in order to do so one must know the difference.

For example, ladies, just because the shoe has a heel doesn’t necessarily make it work appropriate.  Let’s consider the reason the shoe was purchased in the first place. If the shoe was purchased to wear to a party, club or formal event chances are they are inappropriate for work.  In a nutshell, not all items are appropriate for the workplace. Of course this depends on one’s work dress code .

Ok, enough with the lecturing…lol. The lace tank top, used as a shell came from Target a few years ago, yet never worn. Another item lost in my closet with the tags. So unsuccessful! Found it while transitioning my closet for the spring & summer months.
