Work Style Wednesdays: Casual Separates

imageI hope that your week has been great so far. As you can see, I’m sharing one of my effortless looks for business casual today.

I’m a lover of separates so I pulled my white pant suit apart and added a vibrant blouse. They were a great combination with my nude, thrifted Tahari peep-toe shoes.

When in doubt, try this look.  It will keep you sane and comfortable on a busy day. I promise!

Work Style Wednesdays: The Denim Dress

WSW: The Denim Dress

 

Yes! You can wear a pretty denim dress to work. Soft denim works best in the Spring of course. This is great for employers who allow denim or have a casual dress code.  Be mindful of the length. Short dresses are not for work. The ones I chose for you are at least knee-length.

You can style your dress with a colorful pair of shoes, black, white or nude. So many options.  There are also no limits to the types of accessories you can mix and match with these dresses.  A nice tote bag gives you the finishing touch.  Pretty, easy, comfortable and still within your casual dress code. These are my favorite four…

Weekend Treats

Treating yourself from time to time is a must.  I won’t tell you how often I treat myself, but, let’s just say that this weekend was good to me.  I found a couple of gems that will give my Spring & Summer closet a boost. Did you find any goodies?  Here’s what I got…

I plan on rocking my cutout tote a whole lot this season.  It’s fun, light and easy. I’m also a big fan of the color white. It’s a great neutral. You can carry this as a daily tote or take it with you to the beach, for a fun or romantic getaway. I got it HERE!

This beautiful photo from Nordstrom made me buy these floral babies, ASAP.  I can’t wait to wear them with dresses, cropped pants and jeans. The ankle strap is sexy and the 3 1/2 ” mid-heel feels pretty comfortable.

Don’t you love ending a beautiful weekend and starting a new week with good stuff? I do!

Work Style Wednesdays: Let’s Shop for Shoes!

WSW: Shoes!

Have the shoes in your closet seen better days? Is it time to update?

If yes, I did some shopping for you, specifically for work. These are a combination of what I call ‘power’ shoes, classics that you must have, flats, and a couple of fun options for a more casual look.

As you can see, mules are definitely back.  You also can’t go wrong with stripes or florals. They are great for spicing up your look.  If you’re like me, you like to switch it up when it comes to your heels.

When choosing style (open-toe, sandals), the key to is to be mindful of your company’s dress code.  Always follow the dress code! Some employers do not allow open-toe shoes or sandals so you’ll need to rock them elsewhere. That is ok! You’ve got plenty of time to be fabulous. Other companies, like mine, give you flexibility in warmer months that allow you to choose from a greater variety. Either way, you can’t lose with these choices!

They are at various prices to suit various budgets.  Remember, if you don’t get these, you can keep a photo with you so that you shop similar ones at your nearby stores.  I hope that you’re inspired.
