Sherry’s #OOTD Outfit of the Day Style & Fashion Look: “The Work Appropriate Lace Look”

I post my outfits on the blog every day at noon (12 p.m. EST) under this Style category #OOTD Daily Style and then I do a summary of all the looks in my Month of Style roundup at the end of the month.

The Work Appropriate Lace Look

I call this the “work appropriate” lace look because I rarely think that lace is office-appropriate. There is something sensual, lingerie-like or too pretty for the office. That said, this top is rather see through at the top BUT!! you can’t see a thing if I wear a neutral bra underneath (or a neutral camisole). It only shows a peek of lace through the top but doesn’t show much (I am also not very busty).

The skirt, has lasercut details at the bottom that remind me of lace, so the two was an instant “OMG YES! LET’S PAIR THIS TOGETHER!” outfit that felt like a no brainer.

To add a pop of colour because everything else is so boringly neutral (for good reason, the details are a lot, and I didn’t want t make it too busy), I added a pop of colour in the clutch.

The only other thing I added to make it a little tough, and less saccharine, is a wire gold cuff. I love this cuff. I know it is simple and minimalist, but it goes so well with so many outfits that I am contemplating buying a second one if I can find it secondhand. I love this look. I love it also paired with ripped jeans I think, it would really contrast nicely with the very sexy but sleek and chic lace top.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.
