I swore up and down that I would never work in a business casual office. In fact, at one point I didn't take a second round interview because the office (people, ambiance, outfits) was too stiff for me. Welllllllllllll guess what? Times have changed and so have I, and I've taken a new job at a company with a business casual dress code!

I was nervous and excited because on the one hand I thought that meant I would have to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe but on the other hand — guilt free shopping! Turns out a lot of what I have in my closet will work for a business casual environment,  prime example being what I am wearing in this post.

Aside from these new babies, which I bought as my comfy commuter & office pumps (ha!) and my statement necklace I won in a giveaway, nothing here is new or was bought for my new work wardrobe.

I didn't wear this exact look to work but with a slightly dressier pair of black pants I certainly could, and this would be considered business casual (in my mind at least). At the end of the day, I still work in eCommerce/corporate retail/fashion and I think bringing your own style to business casual is totally acceptable. Over on IG, I'm calling it #officechic.
