Happy Friday! As we’re closing up the work week I’m thinking ahead to fall work outfits. today I’m sharing a fall work outfit with a funnel neck pullover. I don’t think I’d ever even tried on a funnel neck pullover. I thought you might not have either. So I decided to put together a simple work outfit with one so we could all see what we think.
Pardon my indoor photos, ladies, but it’s sultry hot outside these days. And I’d look like a soggy mess in this fall outfit if I’d been out in that heat! In fact, we stepped outside just a few minutes to snap some photos and my hair immediately went from silky straight to curling up at the ends. Oh well! But since this is a work outfit I think it’s appropriate to be indoors.
I work from home and only dress up like this when I have a speaking engagement or professional appointment. But I think this simple one-two outfit is probably a great option for many of the career women who are part of this community. I love an outfit that you don’t have to overthink.
I’ve always thought these funnel neck pullovers looked sharp on the models, but had never tried one on until recently. I was surprised to like it. True, the top doesn’t give me a lot of shape, but I’m actually considering having it altered a little anyhow. I think I’d like to raise the hem a bit. It’s not as long as a tunic, for sure. But for optimal proportions I think it would be nice to raise the hem just an inch or so.
I tried adding a pendant necklace to this top, but it kind of got lost in the print. Plus I wasn’t impressed with how it laid on the neckline. So I prefer accessorizing this type of funnel neck pullover with office appropriate bold earrings, a similarly suitable bracelet and a watch.
Because the funnel neck pullover is a little long, it’s important to create a long leg length by wearing footwear in the same color as my pants. I chose to wear my new black Sarah Flint Sacchetto flats, which I introduced in yesterday’s post. These are pricey. I received them as a gift for being a Sarah Flint brand ambassador. But they are extremely comfortable and would make nice investment footwear for a working woman who needs to wear them 9 to 5, as they say.
Obviously I should have dusted my shoes off a little. I need to remember to put my glasses on occasionally to look at such things!
I’m wearing my Italian luxe knit Cambridge straight leg pants from Talbots. These are the ones I purchased to coordinate with my Italian luxe knit blazer. But obviously any smart black slacks would work with this one-two outfit. Mine are a slim fit, but you could also wear fuller leg trousers. I’ve filled the shopping widget below with several black pants options in a variety of price points.
By the way, my animal print jacquard funnel neck pullover is available at Talbots for 25% off. It also comes in solid black. I’m wearing a medium, so I’d say it runs true to size. But I also found a few others to include in the shopping widget below. And I especially like these tweedy funnel neck tops I found at Ann Taylor. I searched and searched for some at stores like Kohl’s, Loft and Macy’s, but came up dry. Of course, fall merchandise is still coming in.
Thanks so much for dropping in for a little workwear inspiration. Of course, this look is also nice for church, dinner out or other dressier occasions. And the funnel neck pullover could also be worn with a skirt or even with black jeans for a more casual look.

Blessed for My Day
Today in my daily Bible reading I read Ecclesiastes chapter 3. These verses reminded me that life is full of seasons. Some of those seasons bring joy and fruitfulness and celebration. Others are hard and lead to confusion and mourning and difficult things. But we can trust that God is with us through each season.
Just as importantly, God is at work in each season. He lets us know in His Word that He has ordained seasons “for every activity under the heavens.” And He is using those seasons to bring about eternal good in our lives. He has put eternity in our hearts, so we will never find lasting satisfaction in these “seasons,” but will only find our greatest joy when we trust in Him for all eternity.
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
What do workers gain from their toil? I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
