Fun fact: I’m known for wearing a lot of black and/or dark colors at work. Whenever I don’t wear black, people have to pause for the cause and take note. Needless to say I’m a fan of black and that’s not changing no matter the season. However, I’ve been making a lot of effort to incorporate pops of color here and there when thrifting for spring workwear. I recently collabed with fellow affordable/thrifted style blogger Rebecca of BeccSmith.com to share with you spring workwear looks that we thrifted for $20 or less. With #werkwearwednesday and #thriftedthursdays Rebecca and I have got you covered with the affordable style inspiration. So here’s my look!
For this look my subtle pop of color is this deep purple and blue abstract floral print top from Ellen Tracy. It’s actually a high low top, but for this look I tucked it into this cute pencil skirt that I also thrifted. It’s so easy to dress this down with a pair of jeans and my current favorite spring shoes casual Fridays at the office as well.
I also found this short sleeve peplum blazer that’s cropped at just the right spot to give me that hourglass dip in my waist. Side Note: Pencil skirts and peplum anything will make your butt look big (that’s a good thing imo) and twerk when you see yourself in the mirror. You’ve been warned and you’re welcome. 🙂
When I saw this black pencil skirt I just could not pass it up because it’s not often that you find a pencil skirt with pleating wrapped all the way around the hem. This skirt is the most fun to walk in because the knife pleat detail dances and flares with each step you take. Pleated skirts and dresses are still trending so this thrifted piece is definitely with the times.
At $4.79 a piece this entire spring workwear get up cost about $15-$16. I hope this outfit left you inspired to give thrifting and coin saving a try. Head on over to Rebecca’s post to see how she saved coins and slayed with her $20 thrifting budget.
