Weekly wardrobe: work attire

Dressing for work has been a little tricky lately.  
I want to make sure I dress professional, but at the same time not lose my personal style.
I'm not sure this outfit is one that I absolutely love (or reflects my style), but it works.  I really loved the navy mixed with the plumb color.
I'm working on building up my collection of work clothes, while trying to find pieces that reflect my style.

How do you dress for work?  Do you have to compromise some of your style for professionalism?  Is there a way to have both?

  1. I think you look great, stripes never fail for me. And that particular stripey jumper is cheery and great colours. I know what u mean about dressing for work, I wear pretty much what I want and if I have important meetings I lean towards more professional, but professional my way lol :) glad GFC finally let me follow, yay.

  2. Since I teach, I have to look more professional. I like to mix fun details in with my basics (colorful shoes w/a black blazer & dark jeans, chunky jewelry w/a simple top, etc).
    You can definitely do it! I think the way you dress on a day-to-day basis looks great for a work environment...maybe just mix in some classy slacks, blazers, etc. You look awesome!
