It’s Thrifty Thursday at the Spunky Chateau. If you’ve read my blog (thank you!) you know I’m a devout thrifter, so coming up with a thrifted outfit is not very hard. I think a head-to-toe retail outfit would be more difficult. I’m not cheap, I’m adventurous!
For today I chose an old standby denim skirt by Lucky. This is a youth-oriented brand but somehow this skirt speaks to me. I love the slim fit, the knee length and the curved seaming. The top is new, from Calvin Klein’s “Performance” or activewear line. So I think I’m supposed to go play rugby in it, or at least jog in place. But even though it’s casual I love the fresh stripes for work.

I’m working on the multiple bangles look with a new-old thrift find: a cool stainless steel watch. It’s big and chunky and I think it functions like a bangle. (Also my old watch is broken.) The brand is “Freestyle,” which I’d never heard of. But I found they’re a nice medium-level sporty brand. So, after work today I had better plan some SPORTS!
I find the whole look appropriate for my workplace, but obviously not for a conservative office/bank/law firm. At a dressier workplace I could still rock the watch, and maybe even the striped sweater under a blazer and with a more formal skirt. And some closed-toe pumps. And hose?
How sporty do you dress on a “work” day? For those of you who have retired or work at home, do you incorporate “activewear” into your daily looks?
