Work outfit layers in olive + black

Today’s work outfit is super comfortable, a variation of an outfit I have also worn multiple times for traveling. This olive vest is PERFECT for traveling — so many pockets! — and also adds a comfy, cozy vibe to a work ensemble. For this work outfit, I layered it over a plain black tee and a black circle skirt. The patterned scarf provides a focal point and serves as a “completer” piece for the outfit.

And if you’re wondering if that’s a new scarf, the answer is YES! My friend Stephanie gifted me this stretchy knit scarf for Christmas, as seen here in my budget post for December.

For travel, I have worn black flats instead of boots, and no belt. I have found leggings under a knit skirt to be a very comfortable, and practical, combination for traveling. The skinny belt helps add a bit more professionalism for a work variation.

    That scarf is amazingly cool!! I really like it. Stephens chose well!!! I like the gilet with the pockets- that IS good for travelling.
    and yes, 9years is a long time to blog, except that it’s actually almost 11years. My 11th blogiversary is in April. That(s why I was so ashamed to have forgotten about the Giveaway for so long!!!!

    The belt is a great addition. It moves the visual waist around some for interest. I really like this outfit!
