DD's Style File - Sleepy Chic

This post really should be titled "I Want to Look Cute for Work, but I'm Extra Sleepy," but somehow it all came together!

So some mornings my brain just can't get it together to think up an outfit that is fashionable, office friendly, and has just the right amount of minimal chic oomph.

I think the most important thing about this is that it took very little effort yet I still feel pulled together. I think that's important because I often talk to ladies who feel they can't pull off the same thing - but yeah, boo, ya can!

Top: Kohl's via Poshmark (similar, slightly similar)
Pants: The Limited
Shoes: Nine West
Bag: old
Bracelet: Zara
Earrings: Forever 21 (similar)
It really is just a matter of a simplistic formula:

a top with an interesting element - either delicate embellishments or a soft print can work
a bottom in a pop of color - skirt or pants
a nude or metallic shoe - I feel metallics are best because even as a neutral they offer a different visual interest, but this can be a heel or a flat
your choice of jewelry  - this is where you can bring in more of your personality, but just choose one statement piece

And voila! Off to the office you go!

Simple, right?! It is, I promise. And in the cooler months it can be topped off with a cardigan or blazer to make it transitionable (I totally just made me a word there).

On another note, the delicate detailing on this peter pan collared top was so adorable, but I just couldn't accurately capture it outside with the sunlight against the light color. So I'm adding this close up just to show you how pretty it is:

So purdy, right?!

If you're like me and you're not much of a morning person, I'd love to hear your formulas for your work chic sleepy head outfits!
