Best Khaki Blazer!! Bookkeeper Wear Color Pop

Best Khaki Blazer!!  Bookkeeper Wear Color Pop

I know, it’s as exciting as it sounds- bookkeeping. Except! Except I get to do it at a music venue in Nashville so I get to deal with and hear some pretty cool people and subjects while working away at numbers. It helps.

Now, I don’t want to lead you into believing I actually put a nice outfit on like this everyday…I’d actually been getting pretty sloppy since I don’t really see anyone but my two main coworkers when I go in. But I was having a little meeting with both my bosses so I thought I’d at least put some effort into my ensemble (and then document the Goodwill goodness for you of course).

It worked. One of my bosses even said, “You look nice, all bookeeper-y.” Yes, yes I do. To which the other guy said, “What are you talking about?” To which I gave the first guy a knowing nod. We get it. Blazer. Necklace. Music venue bookkeeper-y.

Not polka dot pants and old burnt orange t-shirt (outfit prior day) no makeup and no jewelry. Not so bookkeeper-y.

Hey, I watched my fair share of What Not to Wear (more than my fair share to be honest- I love me some Stacey and Clinton), and I know the difference an outfit can make. In your confidence, in how others perceive you, the list goes on. So when in doubt, dress it up, appropriately. Cleavage is generally never appropriate. That does not equal dressing it up, to be clear.

Underneath this great mossimo blazer, which I got at Goodwill for $5.99, is one of my other absolute favorite fashion deal finds,, my peplum top tank, that I got for around $5 last year at Burlington coat factory. The necklace was 4.99 at platos closet, and the jeans were $22.99 (splurge:) also at Burlington. Quilted tan flats are wal-mart. Gasp. Yes I do occasionally shop there :/

All in all, a GREAT outfit, for cheap, and for bookkeeping.

Hey, after all, does it surprise you I like to work with numbers and bottom lines? I am a fashionista on a budget.
