Wear to the Office – Stripes and Green

Hey everyone, we’re baaaaack.   I have some outfit shots to post later on in the week.  For now,  I leave you with today’s work outfit.   This is one of those skirts I only wear in the Spring/Summer time.  I really love it because it just goes with everything.  Oh, and did you notice I finally got a haircut?   Secret, I used to tease the heck out of my crown just to get some volume because it was so long and weighed down.  I finally have some “natural” volume back.

Wear to the Office – Stripes

In an effort not to look like the flag (except in the 4th of July), I like to add a pop of color to my red, white and blue ensembles.  

Have a great weekend!

Age appropriate clothing???

My bf and I have an ongoing bicker about what I should wear.  When we pass by a Bebe store, his eyes light up as he turns to me and says, “you would look hot in that tiny dress”.  I usually laugh and tell him I’m not 21 anymore and walk into the next store, usually Banana Republic or Loft.  I’m a big believer in age-appropriate dressing.  A tight bandage skirt with a flowy top is totally cute on my stylish little cousin who is in her 20s, but not so much on me, I’m 35…and proud.  However, today I was faced with someone that did not share my views on this.  I was in the subway when I saw a woman accompanied by a teen who was probably her grandson…I hope.  She was probably in her 50s wearing a black shorts suit with knee high velvet flat boots (the shorts were really short but she had on sheer tights).  She added an orange bag for a pop of color and her makeup and hair were well done.  She seemed like a very poised lady and she looked GOOD.  I was taken back by this look as I entered the subway in this outfit.  I couldn’t stop thinking about this all day, which begs the question, do you believe in dressing age appropriate or does anything go as long as you look good?   I would love to hear your comments!

Color Blocking for the office

Color blocking is so much fun, however there are certain things to keep in mind when color blocking to the office.   I try to follow up a couple of simple rules to keep it professional.  Use shoes/accessories as the “other” item or pair a bright color with a neutral.   I know…kinda boring!  So today, I decided to break my own rules and just COLOR BLOCK.  I think I still managed to keep it professional.   

How do you color block to the office?

Coral and Purple? Why not!

Ooh, it’s been a while since I’ve posted an outfit shot.  There’s been a lot going on at work so I’m sorry that I’ve neglected you all a bit.  The good news is that I kept taking pictures of my outfits so you’ll get to see them all. 

What do you think of my color combo?  It was inspired by last year’s DVF and Gucci looks.  I just toned it down for the office.

I’ve been searching high and low for a chanel-like blazer. I found this during black friday at the Loft. The best part is so soft and comfortable. I feel like such a lady wearing it.

There’s nothing like the clean lines of a white button down shirt. Wear it with jeans, pants, or a pencil skirt like I did today. Raise your head up and walk proudly, you look fabulous!
