Outfit of the Week 6/3/16

So normally I wouldn’t normally wear maroon in spring, as it’s more of a fall color. But I love this suede skirt too much to not wear it. It’s got pockets and falls perfectly above the knew. I paired it with a bright white top to balance out the dark color. I also wore a maroon headband to complete the outfit. We all have those days where our hair just won’t behave. While a headband may seem childish on the surface, when it’s paired with such profession items and matches color well, it can be a great addition to an adult wardrobe. And it’s a perfect solution for messy hair days and more professional than a ponytail!

Outfit of the Week 5/13

I’m known for colorful clothing, so when I do wear black, I like to make sure there is an element of visual interest. This black dress from White House | Black Market has just that with belt like buckles on each side and snaps at the top. It’s tailored well so it fits curves. I wore it we a red shrug to give the outfit a pop of color that matches the shoes. These are some of my favorite shoes. I fondly refer to them as my Minnie Mouse shoes because they remind me of an elegant interpretation of the cartoon character.

Outfit of the week 5/6

It’s springtime! I love this dress. It’s got pockets that are large enough to fit cell phones (and actually my wallet on quick errands). The best part, though, is the neckline, which has ribbons to clip around your bra straps so they never show. These purple shoes are also wonderful. I found them in a cute little boutique. They’re made in Vietnam and they fit my feet perfectly. They’re wedges so they’re comfortable to wear all day.

Staying Colorful at the Office

I don’t know about you, but it can be pretty dreary working in gray office space. We don’t exactly have cubicles, as we have a more open workspace plan than that, but we still have the fabric, pushpin walls that make the place feel a little, well blah.

Not that I ever need an excuse to wear color, as you’ll learn. But a colorful outfit in a dreary office can be fun. It’s a great way to express yourself, without creating a cluttered desk.

This week, I paired a marble skirt from Target with a purple top from White House | Black Market. Finished with a pair of pink and black flats, I added some warmth to the otherwise gray office.
