I talked Kylee into another Work Wear Wednesday post because two looks are so much better than one am I right?! I’m not kidding when I said I pulled a 360 in the car when I saw these two shirts in the Talbots window. I’ve recently discovered Talbots for work wear and while I will say they are hit or miss for me, they do have the cutest, festive tops! Their Christmas selection was on point and Valentine’s Day is too. One reason that I love their selection is that everything comes in petite and plus sizing which is great for this petite girl!
Whether you work in an office, a classroom or just want a cute and semi professional outfit this Valentine’s Day (or week of), Kylee and I’s looks are casual enough to take you from work to play. For size reference we are both wearing XS’s in our heart embellished tops. If you aren’t sold on either of these looks or just want some more inspiration, see below!

When the weather starts to change so do my favorite pieces in my closet. Instead of gravitating towards my light weight pencil skirts and dress pants for work, it’s usually suede or corduroy for this girl. I picked up this skirt recently and have had so much fun styling it different ways for work.
Depending on how laid back your office is, another way to style this skirt would be with a pair of riding boots and a button down. Honestly the possibilities are endless which is a total selling point when you are purchasing an item. As long as I can think of at least 2-3 outfits that I know that I can make with the item, I can justify buying it.
Speaking of multiple functionality pieces, this sweater that you saw me wearing in my first styled look is the perfect length as it is long enough to wear with leggings and can easily be dressed up or down! My personal favorite way to style sweaters for the office is layered with a button down so that the collar and sleeve detail add in something unexpected. The star detail on this one adds in something special for the holidays that I couldn’t pass up!
While I wanted to share how to style a corduroy skirt, both of these looks could also be paired with corduroy pants as well. I have corduroy pants in grey, olive, burgundy and black. I’ve built quite the collection but I just find them so much more comfortable than slacks! If you are looking to add some corduroy into your work wear, here are a few other options that I am loving!
