Guest Post: Valerie from The Style Files

Happy Tuesday! I'm so thankful that a few of you saw my plea for help yesterday and have offered to guest post this week. I've been reading Valerie's blog a lot lately - she rocks the business-wear while keeping her outfits fun and casual and, most important, super comfortable. I'll let her tell you the rest.
Hi everyone!  My name is Valerie, and I blog over at The Style Files.  I'm thrilled to guest post for Bri on Work Clothes, I Suppose today!  I love Bri’s blog because she is a fellow marketing gal like myself and I love her style—particularly because she has to dress for an office/professional setting. 

I also work in marketing…but at a nonprofit, so my office is more business casual.  However, I always tend to dress a little nicer (dress for the job you want, not the job you have right?!)  I’ll take dresses and skirts any day and I love clean, classic looks! 

That said, being that I work at a nonprofit, I am definitely budget-conscious on the clothes/accessories I buy.  My go-to stores for shopping and closet staples are places like Target (I am a self-professed Target bargain shopper!), Old Navy, J.Crew Factory, Loft …and a few other outlet stores a mere 15 minutes from my house—dangerous I tell you!  I always look for sales and coupons to use when I’m shopping either in the store or online!

Anyways, this was a recent outfit I wore to work…I love the detailing of the waistband on the skirt—adds a fun, feminine edge to it!  I paired it up with some fun wedges I got on sale at Target (of course!) as well as a coral top.  I added the army jacket to finish off the look and add an extra layer for the office- which is always SO chilly!

I'm wearing:
Coral top: Old Navy (similar) $8-13
Army jacket: Old Navy $30.99
Skirt: J. Crew Factory $44.50
Shoes: Target $25

Be sure to drop by my blog, The Style Files, and say hello!  You’ll find be blogging about anything from my favorite outfits and monthly clothing budgets to DIY projects and workouts!

Thanks again to Bri for letting me guest post!  She’s the bomb dot com, isn’t she?! J
