As a blogger, I have various meetings and events I go to on a regular basis. For events, I can typically wear whatever, but for business meetings, I need to be professional, yet still show that bold personal style. I need to stand out, but still be taken seriously. It’s a hard line to walk and I enjoy it when I find an outfit that balances the two. To me, this one fit the bill of that business casual style.
My classic mom jeans, although ripped, are conservative and not too fitted; a clean, white button-down is always a safe bet; and my unconventional use of my pink Gucci crossbody shows my unique style in a creative way. I had the idea to wrap the chain around my waist when I saw that many stores were advertising their waist/belt bags styled as crossbodies. So why couldn’t I do the reverse with my crossbodies?! Ideally I would have loved to fit it into my belt loops, but ya girl loves her pizza so that ain’t happenin. Anyway, I thought it looked pretty cool on my waist like this!
I pulled my hair back in a low, loose bun to keep my hair out of my face, but keep it stylish and went with stud earrings for a clean and classic look. Since it’s about a million degrees out here in ATL, I wore my favorite strappy sandals. Some pointed loafers or slides would have also been great!
What’s your version of business casual style?
