Since I live on a tropical island, my work wear has changed drastically from when I lived in the US; for obvious reasons. I am usually in the office before 8am, and on a good day I leave at 4:30, on a not so good day, I leave at 6:00pm.
One key element of my personal style is comfort. I refuse to wear anything that's not comfortable, and that's where Express shirts come in, I love their Essential Shirts, they are so comfortable, soft and feminine and can be worn with nice work trousers, jeans or a skirt. I never plan ahead, when it comes to what I'm wearing, I usually go with whatever I'm feeling and this skirt and shirt was the perfect marriage of color and a reflection of my work style.
