It's because currently I've been more drawn to this loose, schlepp-y, masculine look / concert festival vibe which works effectively in casual settings but not so successfully at work. At work I'm all buttoned up when inside I feel loose and hippie-ish. And I've found that when I'm not feeling what I'm wearing, it doesn't work.
I've been browsing the stuff from Collective.com now and I think their pieces have the right blend of trendy and boho, yet work appropriate. The best thing is that they're incredibly well-priced (perfect for all you Thrifty Moms!) Here are some of my favorite picks:
|JIBA LAD BLOUSE, Php550|
|JERMAINE LAD BLOUSE, Php795. Works with a camisole for work!|
|ZIGGY LAD top, Php 995: Working that chevron moment|
|BLISS LAD TRIBAL PRINT MULLET SKIRT; Php650|
If you're in a more creative workplace this would so rock that joint! Pair with ferocious heels for maximum effect.
|LEXIE LAD PANTS PHP 1,295|
Some funky palazzo pants are great for balancing boho with work.
Collective.com also has some plus size picks. I'm not in love with the blouses but I ordered one of the pants -- here's hoping they'll look great!
