Keeping with the red-white-and-blue theme this week, I wore this outfit to the office (with a pashmina to cover the shoulder cut-outs :p) to continue showing my patriotic pride. Even though I was not present on Election Day, something about wearing nautical blue stripes and a red bag made me  feel part of such an important time for my home country (I say “home” because Mexico is my adopted country :) ).

I love wearing this patent leather skirt to work because it is unexpected, and pairing it with a simple striped shirt tones it down a bit. I can’t stress enough that dressing professional means you have to wear black pants, a white button down and pumps (unless you are in an extremely conservative work environment). Step out of your comfort zone and have fun with fashion!

Siguiendo con el tema de rojo, blanco y azul esta semana, me puse este outfit para la oficina (con una pashmina para tapar los hombros :p) para continuar mostrando mi orgullo patriotico. Aunque no estuve en el dia de elecciones, algo de las rayas azules de marinero y la bolsa roja me hacen sentir parte de un tiempo muy importante para mi pais (aunque Mexico es mi pais adoptado :) ).

Me encanta poner esta falda de piel charol para trabajar porque no esperas ese detalle y combinarla con una camisa sencilla de rayas lo hace menos ruidoso. No puedo enfatizar suficientes veces que vestir profesional no significa que tienes que poner pantalon negro, camisa de botones blanco y tacones (al menos que estas en un ambiente laboral muy conservador). Salganse de sus zonas de comfort y diviertanse con la moda!
