Wish List: Summer Workwear

For the first time in my life, I am in a position where the dress code is defined by those two dreaded little words: business professional…. dun dun duuuuun. There are a number of problems with this. First, I want to look fashion forward and young. Second, it is a million and one degrees outside (yet, the office is freezing). And third, I don’t want to get bored with my options.  So here are the items I am craving right now for the office, that are still young, cool (in every meaning of the word), and work-appropriate…

Clockwise from Top:

Ray-Ban Clubmaster Glasses… These have been at the top of my list for a while – sunglass or eyeglass version, doesn’t matter.

Topshop Cream Vest… Unique alternative to a blazer. Layer over a dress, or pair with trim trousers and a silk tank.

Cartier Louis Tank Watch… An absolute classic watch, and plus Cartier is the office in discussion.

Antonio Marras Wide Leg Trousers… Mix business and fashion by adding a fitted blazer or crisp button down to these floral trousers.

Stackable gold rings (Nordstrom) The best way to keep your personality at the office is with jewelry. I would wear a couple on a few fingers to stay true to my style.

Nina Ricci Pencil SkirtA bright, fun alternative to the usual black pencil skirt.

PS by Paul Smith Button Down… A menswear inspired blue oxford shirt is my new chambray shirt.

How would/do you stay fashion-forward and young in the corporate world? Tell me in the comments!

1 Piece, 3 Ways: Floral Jeans

1 Piece, 3 Ways: Floral Jeans
My friend’s recent purchase of floral jeans and her subsequent inquiry on how to wear them inspired this post. Floral jeans are ubiquitous right now, so if you catch the craze here are 3 ways you can style yours! The first look is a twist on the denim-on-denim look. Pair a chambray shirt and a scarf with your floral jeans for an updated casual look. The second look is more appropriate for a night out. A sheer white blouse and amazing nude wedges pair perfectly with the printed jeans. Add a collar necklace and a studded clutch to toughen up the otherwise soft look. For the last look, I embraced the pastel trend with a soft pink sweater and pretty gold accents. Which look will you be trying? This pair of floral jeans is by Current/Elliot and can be purchased here.
