Mom Wear to Work Wear: Nude-Colored Tank Top.

I didn't mean to not post Monday and bring you this post very late on this Tuesday but I had to catch up with some rest most importantly, and the other hours of the day were spent with Vivian. Before I knew it, time slipped away. And as I mentioned in my Real Blogger Beauty post, I rarely schedule posts ahead. I have no time for that. Also, thanks to all of you who stop by to read, comment, advise. I am very behind with my blog-reading but I will blog-hop this week and try to catch up a little. Today's post was supposed to be yesterday's post, actually. Better late than never, right?

Every other Monday, I will bring you two Outfits featuring the same item of clothing first in a Mommy Outfit and then create a Work Outfit using at least one of the pieces as the first outfit. Sometimes the entire Outfit might be the same, I'll just use different accessories and shoes. I am doing this to show myself and you the versatility of my clothes by remixing them more. I have worn/will wear both Outfits shown on these posts. Though I am not currently working, I am definitely going into job interviews, job fairs and even did some office-related things a few days this month. I thought this posts will be fitting for Mondays since that is when the work week starts. I figured why not add some more inspiration to the day! Hope you enjoy these posts. In my first one, I will show you one of my most Favorite Tank Tops. It is a Light Cotton Jersey piece in a Nude Color, with a little Bib-like Ruffle down the front. It is Airy, Girly, Simple and Classic. The Color goes with anything and everything. A great layering piece.
This Tank Top has a flattering scoop neckline, which makes it easier to layer with, add a necklace on or even a scarf. For the Mommy Look I paired it with one of my Favorite Black+White Skirts. It is a Bucket Skirt with pockets, it has stripes and swirls within a geometric-pattern. I added my Denim Jacket and a New Orange+Gold Statement Necklace. For Shoes I chose Comfortable, Metallic, Neutral, Beaded Sandals which mixed well with the Gold Headband. For the Work Outfit, I tucked the Tank Top inside my New Gorgeous, Floral Brocade Pencil Skirt. The Ivory/Nude Skirt matched the Tank quite well and the pops of Bright Colors of the Floral Pattern were perfect. I wore my Bright Green Blazer, took off my Statement Necklace and substituted it for my Dainty Gold, Heart Charm Chain. And instead of Sandals I wore my Black+Cognac Wedges and kept on the same Hairstyle and Headband. What do you think of these Outfits? Do you own a Nude-Colored Tank? I hope my post inspires you to try some new looks with it.  =)

  24. Sometimes we just have to live life instead of worrying about blogging! I'm loving that floral pencil skirt...gorgeous.

  25. Love both of the skirts! So pretty and they look great on you.


  26. Ada I think its a marvelous idea for blog posts.
    Also because sometimes in our heads we limit items to certain seasons or scenarios and miss out on getting the most wear out of them.
    I will for example wear a white jacket to work with trousers and then on the weekend wear the same white jacket with shorts.
