Marilyn Style: Something Corporate

Let it be known that although I like to think I’m a Punk Rock Princess, I can do the corporate thing sometimes. My office is business casual but a lot of people like to go the “Mind your own Bidness Casual” route (me very much included). That being said, sometimes I look like I’m trying! Look like I’m trying = put a blazer on it.

This baby blue blazer is from Forever 21. It’s something I am excited about wearing again now that spring it here. I paired it over one of my dresses from the “Stylish Surprise” event from ModCloth. Basically, you tell them your size, and they send you something from their dead stock for $10. I have participated before and got pants (GROSS!) but this time around I was pleased to get three dresses! This dress has a lace pattern and although it’s a little boxy for my taste, it’s nothing a belt can’t fix.

If you ever need a nice waist belt, the children’s section is the way to go! This one came in a three pack from Target (all pastels!). Recently a lot of stores seem to carry belts that you wear around your hips, so I always frequent the children’s section!

The tights are also from Target and are Spanx believe it or not! If you ever want to not breathe while looking fabulous, this is the way to go! They are actually really comfy, but I like them for how thick they are without being tights – I have had them for a year and they don’t run!

The earrings are a ModCloth purchase – cameos for the win! It is hard for me to find a perfect-sized stud; a lot of the ones I am attracted to end up looking too chunky or miniscule. Very happy with these!

Lastly, I can’t be totally business. I don’t remember where I got these boots, but I do love them. So much so that I have green spray paint all over one of them from a craft project. Whoops! Too comfy and studded to care!
