Versatility: Circle skirt & favorite pumps

Hi everybody!

I adore versatile pieces (then again, who doesn’t?), and I would always rather spend my money on an item that will pair with lots of things in my closet and can be styled for multiple occasions. This is part of the reason that for so long I’ve relied on silk blouses for work, since I can also throw them on with a pair of jeans and boots and have an instant weekend-chic look. It’s also why I instantly gravitated to this Club Monaco skirt when I saw it in stores. I think the pattern is so fun, and the material and length makes it appropriate for most offices, while still being cute enough to wear casually or to a special event. I wore this look to the office this week (but may or may not have ditched my tights for the pictures – I can at least wish for warm weather), and I can’t wait to style this piece with strappy sandals and a light top in warmer weather.

Do you have any favorite pieces you would recommend that you find you wear everywhere? I’m always looking for more great versatile clothes! As always, thank you so much for reading!

Outerwear to work: Peplum jacket & maroon dress

Hi everybody!

Today I want to talk outerwear. Specifically work-appropriate outerwear. There’s nothing quite like showing up for an interview, a lunch with a mentor, or a visit to a client site with a North Face fleece covering the polished outfit you put together that morning. I get it. We’ve all been there. And I truly love me some activewear. But just think of the potential first impressions you could be making. It’s called opportunity cost, people.

As they say, winter is coming, and that means its time to get a presentable, flattering (and preferably warm) coat you can wear to work-related events. You’ll look and feel great both inside those heated buildings, as well as when you grab your coat to head outside. And you’ll thank me when the compliments start coming your way.

In case you need a bit more inspiration, here are few pieces I’ve been eyeing recently. What do you think?

1. Banana Republic Draped Wool Coat
2. Piperlime Wool Moto Jacket
3. Rebecca Minkoff Finley Coat
4. Club Monaco Lana Calf Hair Coat
5. Cole Haan Duffle Coat
6. Mackage Zandra Coat

Thank you so much for reading, and happy hunting!
