What I Wore Lately: Casual and Work Wear Outfits For Easy Style Inspo

I’m back with another edition of What I Wore Lately. These are the real outfits I’ve worn to work, outings or around the house. Please use them for style inspiration. Think out of the box and shop your closet to recreate your own versions, if you will.

Or if you own any of these pieces, copy these outfits exactly as they are or purchase the recommended pieces if you have to have “the look”. I share them for your inspiration.

Casual Outfits

At home on a Saturday

I spend a good part of Saturday mornings in my work out wear because I usually do a leg day workout on Saturdays. When I finally got dressed, I put on this old tank and my navy chino shorts. I wear these sandals around the house frequently.

Hair Cut

I had an appointment for a hair cut just before Memorial Day so I donned this kimono, tee and straight leg jeans to head to the beauty shop. Funny thought- do you call it a beauty shop or a hair salon? Hair salon sounds much more sophisticated, but around here it’s the “beauty shop”.

I ran some errands during Memorial Day weekend and wore this out shopping. The top and shorts are new pieces I talked about in my recent purchases post.

Day off/ at home

I cropped my face out because I was having another allergic reaction with red swollen eyes. It wasn’t pretty. These shorts are a recent purchase from Amazon for lounging around the house and my hubby bought the shirt for me from from Black Rifle Coffee Company.

Work Wear Outfits


Black blazer + blue striped top+ grey pants

This really didn’t pop like I hoped it would. I really need a brighter blue top, so it came across a little boring to me.

Work Pink blazer+ floral top + beige pants

These pants are a little lighter than beige but darker than cream so we’ll just call them beige. I usually wear this top with navy or burgundy but I noticed that it had light pink in it also  and decided to pair it with the blazer for a spring/summer look.

All black + gingham blazer

I saw a similar look on Instagram and realized I could recreate it.

Make this a date night or night out look with a camisole and black jeans.

Work- cardigan + olive pants + neutral shoe

This is the second or third time I’ve work this cardigan buttoned up as a top and I love it. I may try this with a few more of my cardigans.

Cardigan- Loft; pants- JCpenney; shoes- Old Navy

Work- Black blazer+ black floral top + red pants

Translate this to black blazer+ black floral to + bright/colored bottoms. Any bright bottoms that match a floral top from your closet will work with this formula.

Blazer- similar; top- option; pants- JCPenney

Work- Hot pink blazer+ floral top+ blue bottoms

 I like having this lighter blue color of bottoms for spring and summer as opposed to navy. I still wear navy pants plenty during the summer but I like this pair and color as another option.

I’ve recently added some more things to my Poshmark closet. If you see something you like, make an offer (just remember offers are binding if accepted. If you have questions, ask questions first.) I’d love for my gently worn items to find a new home to be loved.
