Working It

Plus Size Style, Style

Working in an office, I get worn out on the traditional black, gray, or navy slacks and skirts, so I’m always looking for work-appropriate patterns and colors that are a little more exciting than traditional work clothes. As you know, I love polka dots, but I’m also a huge fan of plaid, so when I spotted this skirt I had to get it!

The gray and black, combined with this soft shade of purple make this skirt office appropriate. I’ve paired it with a coordinating purple button-up blouse and black sweater, even keeping my accessories minimal. I don’t always wear loud jewelry or dresses, it’s nice to switch it up every once in a while!

I tend to stick with flats because I’m already tall enough without the added height from heels. When I do wear heels, especially at work, I want to make sure that they’re comfortable so I can wear them all day long. The shoes I’m wearing today are from the Indigo by Clarks line, a comfortable and stylish branch of the Clarks brand. I love the retro vibe of these shoes, and how they are still incredibly comfortable, so if you’re on your feet all day they’re a great option. (I’ve worn a similar pair of Indigo by Clarks shoes here). Another great option for comfortable yet stylish shoes are Cole Haan with Nike Air. I love everything they make from flats to boots to loafers to heels, they’re great! What are your favorite comfortable and stylish shoes?
