Shanice lives in Hamden, Connecticut, and works in financial crimes for a financial institution. In her free time, she works on her lifestyle and fashion blog, Elegantly Her. Shanice shares fashion inspiration, beauty tips, lifestyle and so much more on Elegantly Her. We especially love the section devoted to workwear – be sure to check it out!
What are your favorite retailers for workwear? I have a huge list of favorite places to shop for workwear but my top choices are Express, New York & Company, Loft, and Ann Taylor. Also, these stores always have great sales, so you don’t have to spend too much on workwear.
What is your business dress code? My office dress code is Business Casual. However, on Friday’s they allow us to have more of a Creative Casual style. [Editor’s Note: we consider this look “Smart Casual” because of the way she dressed up the crop pants with heels and a button-up.]
Describe your style in a few words. I like to think of my style as chic, very elegant and sophisticated, also with my personal touch.
What do you do in your spare time? In my spare time when I am not working on content for my blog and social media, I like to go for walks and socialize with family and friends. Especially now since I have been in quarantine, I have been taking more walks, working out more, and reading since I have more time on my hands.
What’s your favorite “go-to” look when you want to look and feel your best? Although I love dressing up for work, honestly my favorite go-to look is a good pair of denim, a white V-neck, and some simple pieces of jewelry. You can dress this look up or down. Heels, sneakers, or even a good pair of flats, depending on the occasion.
