Anatomy of a Lazy Work Outfit

There are days, much like today, that I just phone it in. With approximately ten other people on my entire floor, I pretty much feel no need to dress to impress, but I still have a “business casual” dress code to adhere to. So what’s a girl to do?

Step one: start with a super-comfy top like this Old Navy popover. It’s ridiculously soft and cuddle-worthy. Plus it’s a bit blousy. Now feel free to overindulge in leftover Christmas chocolates.

Next, add comfortable bottom of choice. Sure, I claim to be a pants to work convert, but let’s be completely honest. A pencil skirt will always be my first choice. And these bright tights from Express? Suprisingly comfortable and soft! (Itchy tights are simply not allowed on lazy days.)

Step three: add some cute black booties because they look awesome with colored tights. Take a few photos in them and realize they hardly qualify as lazy shoes. Switch to flats. (And yes, this actually happened.)

Step four: throw your hair up in a top knot, but not because it looks chic. A quick and easy updo is necessary when you’re too lazy to wash your hair.

Lastly, throw on a scarf. Now you can pretend like your cuddled up under a blanket all day.

What’s your idea of a lazy but work-appropriate outfit?

    My dress code is very laid-back, so my “lazy outfit” is jeans and a cozy sweater. Scarves are a great way to make a plain shirt look more exciting, too!

    I love how your lazy day doesn’t look lazy at all! My lazy day is a pair of pixie pants from J.Crew and an oversized shirt – it’s at least a little comfy πŸ™‚

    I just picked up three of those shirts at Old Navy’s sale this week! They’ll be perfect for student teaching in a 3rd grade classroom next semester. And they’re SO cozy and comfy!
