Business Casual: Denim on top

Business Casual: Denim on top

Happy Tuesday !!

Following the denim-to-work theme for this Tuesday! Today I wore a most comfortable button-up denim shirt and my beloved leggings (but they’re totally work-appropriate, ok??) See ?? –


I love taking a backpack to work. It is soon convenient! Mine is a mini black leather backpack and it is very versatile, meaning it also goes hiking with me on weekends. It is my little adventure buddy, as well as my professional sidekick. Definitely recommend getting a take-anywhere little backpack. They are comfortable, convenient, and both your hands are free. This one I own is also very durable, I have had it since December and it has gone with me EVERYwhere. Hiking, to walking miles in the city, as well as to work 5x a week (with the exception of yesterday :p ).  Also – You can totally customize your backpack with pins! I have 2 on mine already, and plan on adding more as sentimental pins come into my life!!

My shoes are ankle-strap black suede pumps with just the right amount of height with a block heel. Very comfortable, and no need to worry about your heel slipping out (we all know…).

Business Casual: Denim to work

Business Casual: Denim to work

Does your office require business-formal (no jeans) or business-casual? Or maybe uniform? Maybe just casual (*cough* Google *cough*)? My 8-5 allows a pretty lax dress code – just no ripped denim, spaghetti straps, etc (pretty standard).

Standing 5 feet tall, it can be very hard to find jeans that fit well (especially length-wise), as well as tops that don’t overpower my small frame and don’t hide my figure completely.

I like to splurge a bit on “work jeans”, made of higher quality denim so they look good longer and can withstand the washer. As we all know, designer denim can be especially tricky because they are sewn for taller girls and rarely come in petite sizes.

I feel I scored big time with these that I opted for this Monday morning –


On the model online –

dl1961 crop jeans


Jeans – DL1961 Florence Instasculpt Crop Skinny Jeans in Powerhouse wash in size 24.



Since they are the “crop” cut the inseam is [only] 25.5″. My inseam is 26″ for skinny jeans to fit me juuuust rightt. Anything shorter than this I am happy to find! The denim is very soft and the fit is tight all the right places, but not too tight (like, say, my Abercrombie & Fitch jeggings). They are very work-appropriate and I love them! Though they were on the pricier side, I jumped at purchasing these after I was wowed by the fact designer denim was sitting above my ankles and not dragging on the floor once properly on. 🙂

Gray top – Madewell (past season)

Shoes / heels – Nina Originals “Francie” pump


Purse / bag – Marc Jacobs ‘Recruit’ Leather Crossbody Bag
