What To Wear To Work OOTD!

Hello lovelies! Since I have just graduated from college and in the process of applying for jobs, I got a seasonal position back at Nordstrom! I’ve worked at the department store seasonally on and off since I was 18, so I’m very familiar with retail etiquette and how to build bonds with customers. I really enjoy the environment there and the company is honestly so good to their employees. I feel very lucky to have a place there. That being said, I’ve had to do a bit of shopping so my wardrobe fits the dress guidelines. I’ve found some great pieces that would work for your average work day for many people! Thought I’d share that today on the blog, so keep reading to see the look!




What I love so much about this outfit is how casual but put together it is. For my job, we cannot have any rips or holes in our jeans, which is a bummer for me because that’s all I ever buy, LOL. These jeans however, have been a pleasant surprise for me. I love how the bottoms are cut so they look asymmetrical and geometric. I’m all about that geometric look! They’re also a bit high waisted, which is something I really love in a good pair of jeans. Luckily the high waisted look has been very in style lately, so I’ve taken full advantage!



Okay, let’s just talk about this top for a minute. The stripes..the tie…the hood! I can’t get enough of it. This is what I call effortless style. I love when I can put one piece of clothing on and it creates a complete look! This top is super flowy, (which of course, if you know me, is practically all I buy) especially when it comes to the sleeves. The bell sleeves give such an elegant, yet bohemian vibe which is also repeated in the hood. I would have never though to put a hood on a top like this, but I seriously adore it. It’s also a bit of a crop top, making it the perfect summer statement piece. As you may have noticed from my last OOTD, I’ve been super into stripes and I’m not sorry about it!



Outfits like these are great when it comes to working. Walking around for hours in a store, at a restaurant, or in an office can get a bit tiring. Having something that I’m comfortable walking a lot in, but is also super fashionable is what I strive for. If you’re looking for some great work outfits, try aiming for comfortable blouses that can be dressed up with jewelry, hair, and makeup (if you’re into that).


These shoes from Madewell have been my prized possession for a few weeks now. I wore them to my Graphic Design portfolio review, and they were absolutely perfect. Of course, with any heeled shoe, they got a bit uncomfortable around the fifth hour, but I can honestly say they’re some of the best heeled sandals I have. The material is actually very soft and flexible, which was great for being on my feet that day. I think they work very well with the blue stripes in this blouse as well. Unfortunately, I probably won’t be able to wear them during work, but for a casual look I’ll definitely be rocking them!

Hope you all loved this OOTD! I’m bringing both these piece to Europe with me and this top has been all over my Instagram! I also hope you don’t mind my little fiddle leaf plant making a cameo in all of my OOTD’s. It’s just the perfect accent to my room and brightens up my photos. As of right now, I’m in London so again, if you have any great places in mind that you’d recommend, please let me know down in the comments! xx
