Mixing secondhand & retail fashion since birth

Casual Work Outfit – A Bit of a Mix

This casual work outfit is 75% secondhand. It’s mostly inspired by the top that I don’t wear much because it has a wide open back. When I wear it for work I have to layer a cami underneath. I’m probably passing it on to someone else even though I like it. One rule I have for myself is that I don’t like clothes that require other clothes in order to be worn*. It’s just too much work.

*I’ll make an exception If something is totally unique or for a special occasion.

Nike Cortez sneakers (bins) similar | Coldwater Creek pants (bins) similar |
A.n.a button down (bins) similar | Loft tee (retail) exact in XS, similar in solid

These pants (similar) are super comfortable but they are getting a bit loose so off they too will go to someone else who will give them another life.

I was kind of thinking of them as an elevated track pant which is why I chose the Nike sneakers (similar). I think the pants would read OL (old lady) if I hadn’t gone with a youthful shoe. Like flats would be a fail here, I think.

I do like the rolled up sleeve & how it showed off more of the tee pattern.

Overall it was just a comfy casual outfit for work, nothing too amazeballs lol.

Also, I was trying out a new corner for OOTD pics. Other than needing a little supplemental lighting, I think it looks good! But before I spend money on a new lamp I’m going to try a couple other corners of my house. Look at me: The Patron Saint of All Things Frugal. So sexy lol!
