Fashion Work Wear Wednesday

Business Monday Uniform

Happy Monday, y’all! Before anything, I have to let out a big secret: I have been quietly screaming inside since I watched Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy video. I know people have mixed feelings towards the Kardashians/Jenners but I absolutely adore them and have 0 shame about it. If you haven’t see the video, I suggest you find 12 minutes to watch it from start to end. I promise, you’re going to need tissues! I watched it three times yesterday and cried E V E R Y single time. #SorryNotSorry

I normally share work looks once a month for my #WorkWearWednesday series, but today I am excited to share this easy colorful work look. If y’all read my Q&A/#WorkWearWednesday from last month, you would have read about my post-grad work life (aka working 3 part-time jobs and LOVING it vs the 9-5 bore that I had my first 6 months out of college). From that post, I received so many questions and comments and emails about how I structure my days and get everything done since I work from home majority of the week. Typically, on Mondays I am working from my home office in either my pjs or comfy leggings/yoga pants and a sweatshirt. I also use Mondays to catch up on the week before and to try to get ahead for the upcoming week but usually fall into the black hole of emails around midday. However, the past few Mondays I have been trying a new routine of getting dressed in business casual clothes and going to a coffee shop to do work. Most Mondays I don’t want to get out of bed so forcing myself to get dressed, put on make-up and leave my house IS THE ULTIMATE STRUGGLE. With that, I try to introduce new colors to my wardrobe on Mondays and feel them out for the week. I’m probably the only person who does this but I am working on expanding my personal style and have been dying to try colorblocking. I consider this outfit a “light” colorblock look since my top is a pale pink. There are sweet ruffle details on the sleeve and corners of this top that make it dainty and pretty for work but also easy to dress down since ruffles are the latest trend. I pulled out some of my favorite pants from Old Navy that are like a bright midnight blue and added my new Steve Madden dark blush pumps. Y’all, I adore these colors together because they put me in the mood for spring (even though I shot this in 30 degree weather). This outfit has basically turned into my Monday uniform because I have a lot of flexibility and comfortability in both the pants and top. One of my best tips for working from home is to invest in comfortable pieces that you can wear siting on the ground, at your office, in the local coffee shop and during Skype meetings/conference calls. Have y’all tried color blocking? How are you integrating it into your daily wardrobe or your work wardrobe? Let me know in the comments -xo, Azanique <3

    I feel like I’m the only blogger in the world who can’t name all the Kardashian sisters. I heard everywhere that Kylie was pregnant and I don’t even know which one she is (#livingunderarock).
    I love this outfit though – I like how you balanced out the bright blue with light neutrals! So pretty!

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one who cried over Kylie’s video. I honestly have never cared about that family much, but that video had me melting into a giant puddle haha. Loving this look, girly, and especially those vibrant pants!

    You’re so right – this outfit is perfect for winter and wishing for spring. I haven’t watched the Kylie Jenner video yet, but it sounds like I need to since everyone is obsessed with it!

    I’m loving this color combo, and it’s such a great way to color block! I’m usually in leggings or sweatpants when working from home, and really need to start dressing like I’m going to work. I heard it can increase your productivity!
