Liz Lisa work/play transition outfits

Outfits utilizing items from Liz Lisa (and its sister brands - Juge Etta, Tralala, and Liz Lisa Doll) to create casual work outfits. I also wanted to transition at least one item in the outfit for an alternative daytime/going out coordinate to show their versatility!


I am fortunate that my workplace does allow me to wear this very casual type of "business casual", but I know that not everyone is allowed this much freedom! Please keep in mind that I don't mean to insinuate that the "work outfits" will work for every single person's work situation. My idea was to simply discourage the notion that every single work outfit *must* be streamlined and black and show how I personally wear Liz Lisa for work!

Outfit 1 -
For work: Juge Etta resort floral OP, Liz Lisa floral lace peek cardigan, Liz Lisa lace-up back pumps, Liz Lisa ruffle ribbon large handbag
For play: Juge Etta resort floral OP, Liz Lisa pink wedges, Liz Lisa ribbon belt, Kate Spade New York purse

Outfit 2 -
For work: Liz Lisa Doll blazer, (off brand cami), Liz Lisa lace flared skirt, Liz Lisa lace-up back pumps
For play: Liz Lisa cropped cambric puff blouse, Liz Lisa lace flared skirt, Liz Lisa lace-up back pumps

Outfit 3 -
For work: Liz Lisa short sleeve jacket, Juge Etta floral OP, Liz Lisa 2-strap ribbon pumps, Ank Rouge purse
For play: Juge Etta floral OP, Liz Lisa clear pearl sandals, Liz Lisa seashell bag

Outfit 4 -
For work: Tommy Girl blazer from Macys, The Gap (Kids) top from Goodwill, Liz Lisa gingham pencil skirt, Liz Lisa 2-strap ribbon pumps, Michael Kors purse
For play/GNO: off-brand top from Charlotte Russe, Liz Lisa gingham pencil skirt, Flag J heels

Outfit 5 -
For work: BCX blazer from Macys, Liz Lisa border lace with flower detail OP, Liz Lisa 2-strap ribbon pumps, Juicy Couture purse
For play: Liz Lisa border lace with flower detail OP, Liz Lisa yellow wedges

Outfit 6 -
For work: off-brand cardigan, Ank Rouge top, Liz Lisa floral dot skirt, Liz Lisa lace-up back pumps, Michael Kors purse
For play: American Rag off-shoulder top from Macys, Liz Lisa floral dot skirt, Liz Lisa lace-up back floral wedges, Samantha Thavasa purse

Outfit 7 -
For work: off-brand cardigan from Banana Republic, Tralala flower applique button down, Liz Lisa key motif skirt, Liz Lisa 2-strap ribbon pumps, Michael Kors purse
For play: Liz Lisa lace cami, Liz Lisa key motif skirt, Tralala 2-tone bow wedges, Liz Lisa purse w/Champouf pass case


Thank you so much, Berri, for the idea! This was a concept I was considering but not sure how well I would be able to execute it. Hope the work idea outfits are not too farfetched for most of you.

I'm kind of stuck on video ideas and don't want things to get too repetitive, so if you have anything you'd like to see, please leave me a note in the comments! I am going to have to veto most things beauty-related simply because I lack basic knowledge in that area (and therefore the video would be the opposite of helpful), but other general or fashion-related video idea recs would be great!

  2. OMG this is so helpful!!! I work part-time at an after school center for children grades K-12, and all my students (ages 4-7) thinks I'm 13-15 years old, mostly because I have a hard time styling my clothes or finding clothes that would fit. Liz Lisa clothes fits me, but I never knew how to style them into work clothes, so at work I just wear jeans, blouses, and vans .-."" I am definitely going to try these coordinates out =] thanks for sharing!!!!!

  3. ahhh I super love 1 & 2 especially!! Have to have those bright colors and signature Liz Lisa style ne!

    I'm so excited for next year - hopefully I will be able to do coords like this too since my workplace appears to be rather casual with their work clothing requirements xD

    So glad you updated your blog recently btw! I haven't been blogging for ages so I was super hyped to see a new post by you when I came on today *^^*

  5. Thank you for posting these lovely coordinates! You always look great in everything *_*
    Your post reminds of those style portions in JP magazines "one item, 3 different looks" kinda thing. Sometimes I'm lost how to coordinate different looks with my clothes. I never thought of wearing Liz Lisa in the workplace. This is a great idea!

    1. I think it's not so hard for me because my last two work places were pretty relaxed so I just wore whatever I wanted lol.
