Welcome to 9 to 5 Style! The third Monday of every month Fonda of Savvy Southern Chic and I will showcase a theme featuring our individual takes on a professional look. Our aim is to inspire and show professional style does not have to mean boring and without personality. We hope you enjoy our 9 to 5 Style!
Happy Monday! Today we are pretty excited about the solar eclipse, especially as we are right along the path of experiencing a total eclipse. There are eclipse viewing parties and events planned all over in our area. I was sharing with Hunter and Spencer I could remember the last total solar eclipse, which occurred when I was in third grade. When Spence let me know that was almost forty years ago, it made me feel like I have entered into ancient territory…
Today Fonda and I are back with this month’s edition of 9 to 5 Style. Fonda chose this month’s theme and selected bright pink blazers. Sometimes it seems as though bright pink doesn’t have a place in a professional environment. To combat an overly girly feel, I generally pair my pink blazer with streamlined styles and sophisticated prints. To keep things interesting with this particular look, I incorporated some fun pattern mixing with houndstooth, stripes, and floral. The last time I wore this pink blazer to the office I went with all over solids and it also made a great statement.
Make sure you stop by Fonda’s blog and get some more inspiration on how you can style a bright pink blazer for the office, too!
