Bidness Casual

outfit details dress: BCX (buy here) // cardigan: Gap // necklace: Once Upon a Smorgasbord (similar here) // watch: Timex x Disney // bracelet: Coach // belt: made by me in 7th grade! // shoes: Big Buddha // glasses: Derek Cardigan (buy here)

Now that I’m working in a retail environment where employees are supposed to be dressed in “business casual” attire, I’m finding myself struggling to find outfits to wear to work! I have tons of dresses, but y’know me — I like fun dresses and a lot of them have short hemlines that are more appropriate for the likes of H&M or Forever 21 (or maybe just my outfit posts?). Last week I nearly wore this outfit to work, but I brought a pair of black nylons and my Dirty Laundry boots to change into at Tim’s house just in case!

This blue BCX dress I got for Dapper Day at Disneyland (seen here) has become an instant favorite of mine since I’m finding that it’s sooo versatile and ideal for remixing! I’ve worn it at least five other times since Disneyland, so don’t be surprised if you see it pop up every now and then on any future outfit posts. 🙂

The belt I’m wearing is actually something I made in a leather working class I took as an elective course in 7th grade… which was 15 years ago (HOLY CRAP)! I’ll admit, my sister took that same class a couple years before me and made a black belt with stars and crescent moons and I totally bit her style when I made mine. If I were to take that class again, I’d probably make a belt with unicorns and flowers on it!

So I know I mentioned that I wore this outfit to work and that I’m supposed to wear “business casual” clothes, and clearly I’m kind of pushing it with my accessories — like who wears a chunky My Little Pony necklace to work? I don’t want to look like some boring sales clerk though! Until one of my managers say something, I’m gonna keep it “bidness casual” with flair!

Cheers,
Nina
