Guest Post: ANATOMY OF A LAZY WORK OUTFIT11:31 AM
Hello again, What Jean Likes readers! It's Lauren of Fizz & Frosting here again, this time bringing you the perfect lazy work outfit that's comfy and only looks like you put a lot of work into it! There are days that I just phone it in. (I'm not alone in this right?!) With all of the busyness with the holidays, my office seems perpetually half-empty! On these kind of days I feel no need to dress to impress, but I still have a "business casual" dress code to adhere to. So what's a girl to do? Step one: start with a super-comfy top like this Old Navy popover. It's ridiculously soft and cuddle-worthy. Plus it's a bit blousy. Now feel free to overindulge in Christmas cookies, chocolates and treats that your co-workers have left all around the office.
Next, add comfortable bottom of choice. Sure, I claim to be a pants to work convert, but let's be completely honest. A pencil skirt will always be my first choice. And these bright tights from Express? Suprisingly comfortable and soft! (Itchy tights are simply not allowed on lazy days.)
Step three: add some cute black booties because they look awesome with colored tights. Take a few photos in them and realize they hardly qualify as lazy shoes. Switch to flats. (And yes, this actually happened.) Step four: throw your hair up in a top knot, but not because it looks chic. A quick and easy updo is necessary when you're too lazy to wash your hair.
Lastly, throw on a scarf. Now you can pretend like your cuddled up under a blanket all day. What's your idea of a lazy but work-appropriate outfit?
