Work It

I don’t often post many wear-to-work inspired ideas on the blog.  You guys always seem to respond really well to my more casual and laid back looks, so that is what I tend to stick with sharing.  But because dressing for work is such an important part of our wardrobes, I want to start infusing a few more of these posts into the mix.

That said, when I am looking for things to wear to work, I like to try and invest in classic and timeless pieces that I can style a lot of different ways.  I also travel a ton for my job, so I also tend to gravitate towards fabrics that pack well and wear well on an airplane or in a car.  And of course for me, even though I have to dress “business casual” the majority of the time, comfort still plays an important role in my workday wardrobe choices.

So if you are looking to improve or expand upon your current 9-5 wardrobe, but aren’t sure where to start, two staples that I recommend for every working girl?  A go-to black dress, and a classic camel coat.

And don’t forget!  If you want to try my Prada Sunnies (or any of my favorite Karen Walker sunglasses for that matter!) you can rent them for ONE MONTH FREE!  After that it’s $19 a month for as many or as a few months as you would like!  So if you are like me and love designer sunnies, but hate the crazy price tag, this is definitely the way to go.  Stop by Ditto to browse their AH-mazing collection and use code: ALLDOLLEDUP at check out to retrieve your free month!!

 

 

 

Gingham

Gingham has always been one of my very favorite prints.  So when I saw that my favorite Portofino shirt from Express came in a light blue gingham this spring, it was an obvious choice to add to my wardrobe.  And let me tell you, I have already worn this shirt a ton AND have so many more ideas of how I will continue to style it different ways all summer long. But I want to know, what you are guys thinking of the gingham trend this season?

Panama

I love a good hat.  And while I have been really into fedora’s the last couple of years, I think that this year, the Panama hat might just be my new favorite.  But since I am a firm believer that a gal can never have too many hats in her wardrobe, there will be plenty of room for both in mine this season. Not only are hats an ideal statement piece, but they are the perfect secret weapon for combating those less than stellar hair days…

Happy Monday!
