Office Day :: Updated blazer & Tailored pants

Fashion February 2

Happy Friday everyone!  A different type of office day for me now than it was when I was at my corporate job.  I definitely couldn’t wear this back then, especially the sheer components.  But a wool coat + blazer + tailored pants pairing is always a winning combo… Swapping out the sheer turtleneck for a crisp button-up (love this fitted H&M shirt for $20) and platform heels for classic pumps (like these highly rated Sam Edelman pumps), a creative field office day outfit turns into a sleek traditional office look.

I didn’t plan it but my hair ended up matching the ribbon on my blazer.  I actually tried something new a few days ago and love love the results!  Usually I take showers in the morning (wash my hair once every two or three days) and finish by blowdrying and curling my hair.

The other day, I took a shower at night, wrapped my hair with an Aquis hair towel turban (highly highly recommend this!), went on finishing up work, and went to sleep.  No blowdrying, no styling.  And I woke up with super volume!  No frizz, just sleek hair with a lot of volume.  It was crazy.  I had to keep on brushing it down!  Not only that, my curls turned out more of a water-wave style, as seen in this post.  Anyways, I’m a huge fan of the tousled-volume-bedhead-relaxed-curls look (the best example of this is Charlize Theron in Atomic Blonde!).  I’m going to repeat what I did that night to see if I can achieve the same volume hair results.  Will update you soon!

Have a great weekend and thank you so much for reading!
