We have had some lovely weather in Charlotte lately, but that doesn't mean my coats and boots have been put away for winter just yet! I found these navy OTK boots for around $30 last year, they aren't very comfortable, but I think they can add a lot to an outfit. I also am loving this monogrammed Gigi New York bag I got for my birthday this year, it is such a classic style and color. And even though the last thing my closet needed was another striped shirt, I couldn't resist this navy crossback version. The back makes it so different from my other striped shirts. I feel like it also dresses it up a little, I have even worn it to work with  navy pants and nude heels.

February Finds Under $50

Stripe peplum tee | Fringe bracelet ($26) | Tortoise sunglasses | Bow strap heels ($38) | Green dress | Navy earrings ($15) | Wicker bag | Floral pants ($30)

It's time for some spring transition items for this month's Finds Under $50! I think I need this green dress and these floral pants for work. I also need to replace my pair of heeled sandals from a few years ago, and this pair might be a good replacement! I also had to include something navy with these statement earrings. And in case you missed it, here is January's Finds Under $50.

Red Tunic Top

I think the shade of red in this tunic top is great for Valentine's Day this week! Although, the website listing does show it as more of a burgundy color. I have been wearing a little more black over the last year or so, but I don't think an outfit is complete without a little bit of color! I have worn this top with the faux leather jeans (like in this post) to go out to dinner and bars a few weeks ago. But I would also pair it with a black skirt like this one or this one and OTK boots.

Navy Jaguar Leggings

Typically, when I buy a pair of workout leggings, I only wear them to work out. I personally find some pairs of workout leggings are not comfortable enough to wear for anything else. However, this pair is an exception. They have this fun jaguar print on the front, but look like a pair of plain navy leggings from the back. They have a high waist fit, and they are SO comfortable! They are more of a cotton material, so for workouts I like to wear them more to a barre class or something that I do not sweat very much. They would not be my first choice for a hot yoga or HIIT class, but I  have been wearing them a lot to run errands and hang out around my apartment. Also, you may have seen these sneakers in gray in some past posts, and now I also have the navy pair!

My goal is to help you mix up your closet, even if you feel like you don't have a lot of workwear pieces. And if you aren't yet in the workforce, these are the pieces I would recommend for building a versatile business casual wardrobe!

You may notice this post is titled "Winter "Workwear Capsule Wardrobe, so I am hoping to repeat this series for warmer weather, maybe in June? Also, I guess I was feeling like packing a blog post series name with as many "W"s as possible...

Thursday, February 1st
Polka dot top | Navy skirt | Velvet heels | Pink earrings
