The weather is cooling, time to break out all the jackets for business casual outfits! I’ve enjoyed putting together new outfits with some fun new jackets that I picked up earlier this year, and rediscovering outfits from previous years as well. This fall business casual outfit is a mixture of a couple new items, and some items that have been in my wardrobe for a while. I love the color combination and look forward to wearing it throughout the fall.
Ever since I tore my Achilles in 2012 I haven’t really been able to wear heels. I live in flats, or shorter wedges. I found these Tory Burch flats at Goodwill in New York City when I was there in March. I love how they add a bit of unexpected pattern and color to my business casual outfit.
I used to shop Loft ALL THE TIME (mostly because they had my favorite basic tees), but had somewhat forgotten about them as I did less shopping in store and more online. Well, after checking them out again this past spring, I’ll definitely be back.
I love these pants, for being dress pants they are super comfortable. They are even lined, which is surprising at their price point (I got them on sale for less than $50). I did get them shortened a couple inches since I wanted to wear them with flats, but it was an easy update for my tailor to do. These trousers are the Julie fit, I see similar pants are available, but these exact ones are no longer for sale.
The navy shell that I’m wearing under the jacket is also from Loft (no longer available). I bought it along with a pink one this past spring and it is easy to dress it up with a jacket and trousers, or down with a pair of jeans.
I was super excited about this Maroon jacket when I saw it on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, especially with how often I wear my blue faux-suede jacket from last year. This jacket is super soft, and a great way to tie the outfit together. One of the hard things with jackets is that they can be a bit restricting of my arm movement. Since this jacket is a soft construction, I don’t have any of these issues (which is important for my everyday work).
I got my first Louis Vuitton purse earlier this year. I went back and forth on a few different styles, and finally settled on the Siena bag. It can be either a handbag, or worn as a cross-body (which is what I do most of the time). Fashionphile is an AWESOME spot to shop for gently used and guaranteed authentic designer bags.
