Pencil Spots | Polka Dot Skirt and Red Accents

Happy Monday my pretties!



I'm continuing my work-oriented outfits series with this look - my polka dot pencil skirt and and a plain blouse! I know, this outfit is probably not the most exciting look I've ever featured, but to be honest this is the kind of outfit I wear to work quite often. I work in politics so my office is pretty conservative. I try not to go too overboard with my clothes but I think a pop of polka dots and a splash of red is still a toned down look that isn't boring, right? :]




Do you guys work in a casual or formal environment? If you're in school, do you guys wear uniforms? Let me know in the comments! Also, please excuse my appearance in these photos. I've caught a cold and I've been feeling so off lately :/

Top: H&M blouse
Bottoms: Forever 21 pencil skirt
Accessories: ASOS bag, Forever 21 belt, H&M necklace
Shoes: Steve Madden Getta pumps

  11. There's my favorite bag again *drool. Sometimes the simplest outfits are the most chic, and I love that polka dot skirt (from forever21? You don't say!) I hope you feel better soon.
