3 Floral Outfits to Wear to Work
I’ve always been one to stick to a pretty classic fashion comfort zone. I’ve embraced solids, polka dots, stripes, and leopard print, but floral is one trend that I never thought I’d get on board with. It’s a new season and I finally decided to give it a try. Not only have I finally given it a try, I’m loving it. Here are three floral outfits that I wear to work and that you could easily replicate with items in your own closet.

Outfit #1: I’ve seen floral maxi dresses on Pinterest for months and always admired them. With my height I continued to think that I wouldn’t be able to pull one off, the dress would be short or it’d just look weird on my frame. For reference, I’m 5’7″ and once I put on heels nearly 5’10”. PinkBlush gave me the opportunity to try one and I’m in love. I’m not in love with the fact that I thought this dress was from the women’s section when I picked it out and in reality, it’s not. This dress is great for pregnant and non-pregnant followers because it’s actually from the maternity section… joke’s on me because when I ordered the dress the link they sent me to include in the post went straight to the maternity section. For the record, I’m NOT PREGNANT and I’m going to rock this dress anyway because I bought it out of the women’s section, I promise!

Outfit #2: The day I wore this dress it was the most beautiful 80-degree day minus all of the allergens in the air. I work indoors in an office that tends to run chilly, so I wasn’t too warm in long sleeves on an 80-degree day. I love that this Banana Republic Factory dress has such a subtle floral print and that I can style it so many ways. Does it look familiar, I’ve styled it on the blog before. My favorite two favorite ways to wear this dress in the fall are:
- On a warmer fall day wear it bare legged with heels.
- On a cooler fall day add leggings, a scarf, and your favorite pair of brown riding boots and you’re set.
Outfit #3: I love how versatile a bold pair of heels can be in one’s wardrobe and this floral long sleeve top leaves me feeling like I’m #adulting. When I let Peter pick my outfits out for a week I discovered that I really don’t own many pairs of work shoes or tops. Sure, I own a lot of tees and running shoes, but that doesn’t come in handy in the workplace. After that week experiment, with my September fashion budget, I added this top and heels to my wardrobe. I’ve already been able to wear the heels with multiple outfits (see Outfit #1 in this post above) and know that they are going to get a lot of mileage this advising season. Wanting to add new items to your wardrobe? Budget for it! I’ve saved so much money by budgeting and made much more purposeful wardrobe decisions when I budget for it each month.
