You Better Work: September 29 – 23, 2016

Written by Lindsay Scouras

Hey look, here we are! Another week, and more workwear recaps (I know, sometimes I even surprise myself). I read somewhere once that if you’re trying to start a new habit, you have to make a conscious effort to do it for at least twenty-one days. After that, it’s actually harder to stop the thing that you’re doing than it is to continue it. I’m sure that logic is meant for something actually important like exercise nail biting, but I’d like to think that supplying you all with a collage of Instagram photos of my daily outfit ranks right up there on your must-haves.

I think what inspired me this week was coming up with new ways to wear some of my favorite summer pieces for the seasonal transition we’re experiencing right now. While the temps have dipped slightly, we’re not quite there with sweater weather yet, and the thought of doing my massive spring/summer to fall/winter changeover is already weighing heavy at the bottom of my to-do list. So right now I’m trying to make do with what’s in my closet, with the addition of a few layers. Like I said, I’m working with what I got, so a lot of these items are old but I’ve tried my best to link to similar (and affordable whenever I can) options. Here how this week went down:


Free People dress (sim) / NY & Co. top (sim) & belt (sim) / C.Wonder earrrings (sim, silver) / Target shoes (sim – really sad about this one because shortly after this Schoon ate the left shoe)


Old Navy chambray, pants & flats (seriously?! not intentional) / Amano Studios necklace (not available anymore on their website, but sim here)


Target tee / Macys jeans / H&M denim jacket (sim) / Forever 21 scarf (sim) / Dolce Vita booties via Nordstrom Rack / Kate Spade earrings (square version)


currentVintage top (sim) / C.Wonder skirt (sim) / Old Navy flats / (sim) earrings


Forever 21 blazer (sim) / Express top / Old Navy pants / Target shoes (sim) / Kate Spade necklace (sim)

That’s all for this week! Stay completely up-to-date on all the #ootds over on my Instagram, Facebook (where you can see my full album of all my daily outfit pics since I started), or Snapchat (@legallylinz). Let’s be friends!
