Hi.

My name is Kaylie! I started blogging over four years ago with the intention to show women that style comes in all shapes and sizes! After taking a trip to India last year, I re-branded The Sweltering Sweater into an ethical fashion blog. I want my readers to feel good about the clothes they're wearing, as well as where they came from!

How to Make Lounge Wear Into Office Wear

Let's be honest, we would all love to wear stretchy pants and a sweatshirt 24/7 if we could. Unfortunately, many of us have jobs that require us to look professional and, often times, business wear does not equal comfort.

Restricting skirts and stiff blazers repeatedly end up being thrown on in an effort to satisfy the boss, while spending the day re-tucking our shirts and rubbing our sore feet becomes the bane of our existence.

While at Arcs Value Village last month preparing for my Thrift Stylist Instagram Takeover (you can see my takeover posts on Michelle's page here), I found all of these pieces and constructed a look that I believe would satisfy both the need to be business casual while also remaining comfortable.

I compensated for the ankle length, tie waist, unstructured pants by dressing up the other pieces in the outfit. My pink jacket provides structure to the look while the faux velvet loafers add an element of class to this ensemble that it would not have had otherwise. For a finishing touch, I tucked the turtle neck into the pants for a tailored fit.

For warmer times, you could also do a dressy sleeveless top instead of the turtleneck or do ballet flats and have your jewelry be the main attraction.

If you're looking for a photographer for your blog shoots, senior pictures, family pictures or wedding, I would highly recommend her. She is very detail oriented and can always find breathtaking locations.
