Recently, I switched “real person” jobs from a semi-professional dress environment to a jeans environment. While this may seem like every person’s dream, it has posed a slight issue for the financially challenged. How do I dress down my professional pieces for my new workplace without having to buy a ton of clothing? Sure, I could show up in my fancy skirts and blouses but 1) Who really wants to hear “Why are you all dressed up today” every.damn.day? and 2) Come on, it’s a JEANS environment… which. is. awwwwwesoooooome!
Thankfully, I came across this tip from The College Prepster and it has revolutionized and revitalized my wardrobe. Now I can wear all of my button-down blouses (estimated at 12-15 shirts) with my jeans without looking overly done up. BONUS! I can wear my button-downs comfortably in summer. Woot woot!
I do have to say, above anything, the best part about this tip is that the rolled sleeve doesn’t get too tight or bulky. It’s comfortable, stylish and super easy. Give it a try!
Ahh-so that's how it's done! I've have to remember that! I often wear button up shirt with the sleeves rolled up, but I just roll them up any old way! 😛
Right?! Who knew there was a proper way?! But I will tell you this much, they are so much more comfortable now! 🙂
I always roll my sleeves the J.Crew way– love it! Thanks for linking up with Mix it Mondays!
