Keep it Professional

I wanted to keep it simple and professional today.  I threw on my trusty Editor Pants.  Unlike Cat, I feel like the Editor pants work better on my body.   Check out her post on Editors vs Columnist.   We have many things in common, however height is not one of them!  Cat is 5’7″ (or 8″….I conviniently forget) and I’m 5’2″ (well according to my last MD visit I’m 5′ 1.75″…I round up).  I’m constantly try to find ways to make my legs look longer.  Here are some tips.  (1) Always wear heels with slacks. (2) Keep the hem at least 1/2 inch from the floor, the longer the length the longer your legs will appear.  Just be careful not too make them too long becuase then you’ll look sloppy, you don’t want that.  If you must get all your pants altered (I do) , make sure you bring the shoes you will wear most with those pants. 

If you’re short, like me, what thing do you do to appear taller?

And it’s getting warmer…

The temperature is predicted to hit the 60s today…yipeeeeee.   I’m definitely going to make it a point to step outside for lunch or just for a walk.

Today’s outfit is a head to toe Banana Republic look.  As you all know, I’m a big BR fan.  They have great work staples that are trendy yet appropriate for the office.

What is your favorite store for work clothes?

Happy Thursday all!

My Daily Outfit – August 09, 2010

Where: Work
From Closet:
Skirt: Express
Shoes: Kate Spade – Karolina shoe
Watch: Audemars Piaget

New: (From a recent trip to Tanger Outlet)
Top: Banana Republic
Belt: J Crew

Yes, I know. I was supposed to stop shopping, but I couldn’t resist the great deals at Tanger outlet. I did give myself a budget of $200 and walked away with 2 cardis, a top, a cami, a button down denim shirt and two belts. Not bad 🙂

Now, back to the outfit. Leopard is the new black! OK, maybe not the new black, but it’s one of Fall’s Must Haves. I’m not much of a print person, so I will stick to leopard accesories…like this awesome belt from JCrew. It’s from the outlet, but I’ve picked out similar ones below. Click on the picture to purchase.
