STYLE JOURNEY: OFFICE CHIC IN POLKA DOTS

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
If you’re reading this blog and want to use any of my personal style pictures please email me before reblogging or putting on your site. I recently  found my pictures on a not so nice site and am having a hard time getting them removed. So, please email me at stylishcurves@gmail if you would like to use any of my personal style photos. Thanks and hope you understand.

Also, please note that when I post office looks they may not work for every office. My office policies and rules are different because I work in a small office where in the summertime my boss’s come to work in shorts. Some people work in very strict offices where they have to wear stockings and no open toe shoes. Others can go to the office in jeans and a t-shirt. You get my point. What I wear is what works for my office space and I have never been told I was dressed inappropriately.

Now, about today’s office look:

I wanted to share with you yesterday’s at the office look. I’m  such a big fan of tie neck blouses because they are so feminine and old school chic. I found this black and white polka dot top at Forever21 during the summer time. The first time I wore it, I rocked my tweed shorts with it (See it HERE). This top is probably one of the best tops I’ve bought at Forever21 the fit is perfect.

I originally wanted to wear the top with a red skirt during the summer.  I had been dying for a red pencil skirt and I couldn’t find one. I saw one on the ASOS Curve site but it sold out in my size when I was ready to buy it. Luckily while cruising the Bloomingdales site last week, I found this red pencil skirt by Love Ady. I added to my shopping bag with the quickness because I didn’t want to miss out on it. I love the combination of black, white, and red. It just looks sharp and bold to me. I thought pairing the two together would make for a dashing office look.

I chose to complete my office look with my knee high suede boots from Michael Antonio. I also chose to keep the accessories silver and simple with my over sized hoops from Forever21, a cocktail ring from Avenue, and silver bangles from Ashley Stewart.
