Chasing Rainbows

Hi everyone!  Hope you're liking the new format.  I will say that it has been giving me a little more time, and I'm really grateful for that. 
Dress:  Eloquii (Available here)
I take blogging very seriously and would love for it to be my full-time job one day, but for right now, I make virtually no money from it, have a full-time job, and five kids, so I have to get better at prioritizing.  Plus, I have some really exciting long-term goals that I want to start working on.  I can't pursue those if I am spending every free hour on the blog - as much as I love it.
I've got several posts lined up for this week, the first of which is today's post, featuring two recent colorful work looks from Eloquii - in case you needed a little back-to-work style inspiration. 

I tempered the rainbow-colored dress and skirt with my always favorite black.  These Eloquii pieces are quickly becoming favorites in my wardrobe, and I feel like I'm really living up to my New Year's style resolution to wear more color!!

For the first look, I'm wearing a brushstroke print dress.  The black booties add a little edge to the work look while the blazer gives it a professional vibe.
Blazer:  Eloqui
Bracelet:  The Limited
Removing the jacket makes this dress a great work-play option. 
Earrings:  The Limited
Sunglasses:  Calvin Klein
Tote:  Target (Available here)
For the second look, I paired the printed kilt with a bright citrine tank and added a black boyfriend cardigan and the same booties.  I would have preferred a slightly shorter cardigan, but I don't dislike the longer style. 
Skirt:  Eloquii (Available here)
Camisole:  Boohoo.com (Available here)
Cardigan:  LOFT Petites (old)
Watch:  c/o JORD Wood Watches (Available here)
Bracelet:  LOFT
Glasses:  Valentino
Boots:  Target
So often, I feel like I have to compromise on my style for work, to tone it down for what is work-appropriate.  These two looks feel like "me," but I still feel like they are acceptable for work.  Such a combination means that these will definitely be repeated looks for me. 
Are you a fan of colorful looks for work?

  1. I like the dress. I could see myself wearing it to work with either a cardigan or blazer.
