Today's Everyday Fashion: Office Neutrals

Today's look is super-similar to my inspiration; the only big difference is the position of the belt! I wanted to show off the peplum ruffles on my shirt so I left it untucked, but a belt was still necessary. Why, you may ask? Well, when wearing a shirt that has a box shape such as this one, I find that a belt gives it some much needed curve. I also love the idea of wearing a blouse untucked to cover up the top of a high-waisted skirt. When it comes to making office wear "fun" I usually turn to bright colors but I think this look proves you can do it with neutrals too! Do you prefer wearing neutrals or bright colors to the office?
