What I Wore: Work Presentation

A great outfit is an instant confidence boosterespecially when it includes high heels.  Although working from home means I typically wear comfy clothes while working, sometimes I need to step it up a notch.

Last night, I gave a short presentation on essay writing at an area high school and wanted to wear something comfortable, polished, and professional.

It's all about the right fit and quality pieces.  But that doesn't mean you have to spend a lot of money. 

In fact, none of this outfit cost full-price.  The top and skirt are from Marshall's (the skirt is from my recent shopping trip with my mom... original price $178; our price $39.99).  As you may remember, the Kate Spade purse was a graduation gift from my parents (original price $428; our price $149).  I got the necklace from J.Crew on sale AND with a gift card.  And the shoes are from DSW's clearance rack (another find while shopping with Mom).

Want more workwear inspiration?  Check out Fiscally Chic's post today on what she wore for a big meeting... and Ashley Nicole Catherine's recent post on work essentials (it inspired me to pick up those new pencil skirts and pumps with my mom!).


  1. Great minds think alike ;) And love the outfit you picked out. I realized later in the day that most of the items in my "big meeting" outfit were gifted to me.
