I’m all for a good pant suit (as evidenced here & here) but every once in a while, I just want to dress like a princess. Given that I work in an office environment, donning a ball gown and tiara isn’t exactly above-board, so to do so I find pieces that are professional, but with a princess / queen flare – a feminine office outfit (if you will).
This outfit is my most recent ‘corporate queen’ creation. The pastel colors, the flare of the midi skirt and, of course, the headband are all princess-like while being a professional feminine office outfit.
The skirt is from the Richard Allan x H&M collection, which is one of H&M’s designer collaborations that has a ton of really beautiful pieces with unique prints. I reviewed the collection in full here if you want to check it out!
You’ll notice that I did some print mixing with this outfit – the blouse has a subtle small check pattern which I love in contrast with the bold print skirt. One tip for print mixing is to always pair a small print with a big print; don’t mix prints of the same size!
I hope you all have an awesome work day ahead! I’m gearing up for a trial tomorrow; so I am in full lawyer mode today and tomorrow. I’m excited to take a break this weekend and get some holiday decorating started. I know a lot of Americans wait until after Thanksgiving to decorate for Christmas, but since Canadian Thanksgiving was in October I usually start my holiday decorating as soon as November hits!
The big debate in my house? How big our Christmas tree should be lol. I have a 7 foot fake tree from years past and Alex has a TINY two foot “coffee table” style tree. Clearly, I think that is way too small! Thoughts?! …. I’m hoping we “compromise” by putting up both trees. That’s how compromises work right?! 😂
