Weekday Wear Link Up: Printed Tanks, Pencil Skirts and Blazers With Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere

Simple corporate style for today's Weekday Wear Linkup. Making my simple printed tank and pencil skirt outfits a little more formal by adding a blazer. A great way to feel a little more dressed up in an office, just add a blazer!

ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Repeating a lot of faves in this outfit! The black jersey blazer and pencil skirt together make the outfit seem a little more formal and suit-like (but much more comfortable, being jersey!). The leaf print tank is one of those pieces I can wear for work and for days with the kids, it's a great "wear anywhere" piece. I've worn it with the blue necklace before but for something a little different this time I wrapped the necklace around twice instead of leaving it long.

The Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere was a good choice for the predicted wet weather and it's the perfect size for taking my notebook across the city for a meeting in another building. The gold mouse flats were a fun touch with the outfit - metallic gold goes with everything and they are always a talking point when meeting new people.

Why I wore it:

Trying the suit-like look again with a grey jersey blazer and pencil skirt together. The casual fabric stops it from looking too formal for my business casual office. This printed tank is a fun one too and is was just $1 at the opshop, so with this fifth wear I'm really getting great value for money from it! With all the bright colours and mixed prints in the tank I kept the shoes a simple silver to tie in with the grey blazer and skirt, as well as the silver necklace.

The Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere was an easy choice again for another meeting across the city.

Printed Tanks Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A printed tank is a great piece you can dress up or down! It looks great with a pencil skirt and blazer  for the office but you can also wear them casually with denim outside of the office.

  6. It really is the easiest combo for the office isn't it? I use to dress like this all the time and so miss a great straight skirt suit. My hips seem to be fighting my desire to pull off this look lately! Happy Monday!

  15. I love how you made the pseudo-suit with the gray blazer and skirt! Such great looks! Blazers really are the best. i wish I wore mine more often but since I don't go to an office anymore they usually feel too dressy (especially for the grocery store ;) )

  17. I struggle to style my blazer for whatever reason. I have a navy one that I rarely wear though I love the look of blazer like you've paired up here today. I need to challenge myself to wear it more often and paired up with a skirt and printed top like you did is absolutely perfect and completely doable.

  30. A blazer can make any outfit look dressy, so they are a wardrobe essential in my book. Both of your outfits are perfect for the office, without being too formal, but my favourite is the second one, as I'm loving the combination of the grey with the colourful top. Wishing you a wonderful week, Mica! xxx

  63. I seldom wear blue Jean’s and explore for other options that can throw a statement. This was quite a professional look. Loved the second outfit a lot. The multi shaded top matched well with the contrast shades jacket and skirt. The bag is classy. Don’t you feel a plain black bag would have gone well with the second outfit.
