First - hi everyone! I just joined and am already really enjoying the forum Guess I'll dive right in...

I'm 26, live in Central Florida, and my work environment is very business casual. Honestly, I am so challenged at defining my style. So I guess that's my first cry for help - I've added photos of two outfits that I wear and feel really good in, both feel like a personal reflection of me at this time. I like looking polished at work or home and am not shy of color/texture. I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on style words that come to mind as I'm kind of reinventing my wardrobe right now and am looking for guidance. I also included some pieces I'm drawn to currently for fall - I definitely tone down my colors to earthy tones for fall/winter.

The second part of my question is for those ladies who are also in business casual. How do you balance out your wardrobe? The majority of my outfits are crafted for work, so naturally I buy heavier in that category. My real struggle is my own mental block - I try and make everything in my wardrobe function for work AND weekend/date nights and have a hard time shopping just for one place or the other but I desperately need some casual/non boring items for weekend wear. Has anyone else dealt with this? My casual wardrobe is seriously blah, and for my normal weekend/date activities with the SO, sometimes my work stuff feels too dressed up to translate.

Thanks for any help and advice you can give. I'm looking forward to chatting with everyone!
