Workwear and 5 Productive Things To Do On Your Coffee Break

As someone who works at a company with a business casual dress code, it's sometimes hard to dress how I love to when I'm outside the office. There are some items that just aren't comfortable for a day sitting at your desk. Am I right? 

Sometimes the line between work appropriate and not is very thin. But when it comes to a morning when you're in a rush, you can never go wrong with some great classic pieces.

It seems like you can't go wrong with a pair of basic leather pants, a solid top and a great jacket! What can make it even better? Adding in some statement jewelry and some killer heels always does the trick.

Though the days are zooming by, the to-do lists keep piling up. Is anyone else always feeling this way? I've learned that it's NECESSARY to take some breaks during the day. Whether it's a short walk, grabbing a meal away from your desk, or going to sit in the car and close your eyes (mine are always killing me by the end of the day from staring at the screens). To make things easier for you, here are five productive ideas of things to do on your break.

Clean Up Your Camera Roll

I am so guilty of saving a million screenshots (even if for just a moment) and different photo edits. Take a moment of your time to go through the roll and clear out all the oldies. You may come across some cute photos that you forgot about!

Update Your Social Profiles

Been waiting to fill in parts of your Linkedin, switch up your bio or add a new profile picture? Now is the time to knock those little things off of your list. Staying current is always a priority.

Write A Sweet Note Or Phone A Friend

Been thinking of calling a friend or family member, or needing to write a thank you note for a holiday gift? Take a moment to de-stress and catch up on things with those that matter most in your life.

Make A To-Do List

With so many ideas and tasks coming your way during the work day, it always helps to make a list. I personally love using the app Wunderlist - available on your computer and phone no matter where you are. I'm a firm believer in the thought that if you write it down, it will get done. So far, so good for today!

Take An Actual Break

There will be some days when you still want to be productive, but it just isn't possible. Endless emails and back-to-back meetings can just really drain someone. Take a little break from thinking - research some vacation spots, watch an episode of your favorite show online and plan something fun to do later after work!


Don't let your work take over your life. Time goes by way too fast for that.

Here's to the weekend!
