We have an unofficial motto at Maurices that says you should only wear an outfit you’d be proud to share on social media so I’m taking that to heart by sharing my outfits that I’ve worn for my shifts this week! Hopefully this will inspire you if you also work in a creative environment.
Forever In Blue
I failed to outfit plan this week so everything in this post was just winging it!
We’ve been selling lots of dresses (and shorts!) for upcoming summer events so I was inspired to create a look that I might wear on a picnic date or to a family reunion. In any case, I’ll be comfy eating lots of food in this dress!
We just marked down a very similar one to clearance so if you like it, check your local store to recreate this look on a budget.
👗 WHAT I’M WEARING 💄
Outlet store dress, $5 | Thrifted plaid top, $1.50 (old Maurices brand!) | Lulu*s sandals, $19 (past season)
A kimono is always my go-to when I don’t know what to wear! I especially like this floral one because there are lots of colors to try and match. For this shift, I pulled the coral (still a hot color this year!) and went simple on the bottom with jeggings and my trusty white sandals.
To make this look something different than what I’d wear everyday, I added a halter-style bralette so the pretty straps were visible which helped to add interest.
The Right Stripes
I really should have planned my outfits because this day ended up being much hotter than I expected and I was roasting. Lesson learned!
I had jeans & a t-shirt in mind and this striped one fit the bill! I was able to do a little color matching (same as the outfit above) and look pulled together without much thought.
This outfit was inspired from scrolling through photos Maurices had been tagged in on Instagram. I found so many stylish customers across the country rockin’ their Maurices pieces!
One look stood out so I recreated it with items from my own closet. I put my own spin on things by adding my gray flats and having a half ponytail higher than the Empire State building!
Weekly Outfit Challenge
Our district-wide outfit challenge this week was to style up one of our new tops with special detailing like smocking, crochet, etc.
There were so many to choose from but ultimately I went with this polka dotted blouse. It was truly a challenge for me because while I love the cut and pattern of this top, the brown color had me stumped. Finally I came up with a theme and paired it with earthy tones for what I call a “glamping” moment. Now that’s my kind of vacation! Where would you wear it to?
I ended my long work week in a pair of shorts. The weather was gorgeous so I had to! I just added a kimono to a simple base of shorts and tee to add some interest. It worked because I got compliments all day long! Unfortunately the kimono is not from Maurices but we have lots of similar styles that are just as beautiful. Shop ’em here!
👗 WHAT I’M WEARING 💄
Thrifted tee, kimono, and shorts, $6 total | Lulu*s sandals, $19 (past season) | L’Oreal lipstick in Saucy Mauve (shop exact lipstick)
