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!!

 

 

 

Pink and Blue

I love the combination of pink and blue together.  In fact, it’s one of my all time favorite color combinations.  And another current favorite?  These ah-mazing pink lace up heels

Shifty

I LOVE a good shift dress.  Not only are they the ultimate in comfort, but they are a perfect piece to wear to work during the summer months.  Easy, breezy, and professional.  They are also a great transitional piece to take from day to night, or casual to dressy.  If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, you can follow me here) then you know I wore this dress paired with a denim vest to a friend’s baby shower over the weekend, which gave it a slightly more casual vibe than today’s post.  Once again, another versatile piece that is great to add to any gal’s wardrobe!

Working Girl

Happy Friday, sweet friends!  I hope you have all had a great week.  I was on the road for work, so despite my best intentions to get some blog posts up and running, my nights were spent getting caught up and prepped for meetings.  But today, I’m back!  And I am excited to share with you a typical outfit that I would wear to work.  Because I am on the road so much for my job (you can read about what I do here), on planes, in cars, and in and out of Executive meetings, I am always looking for work appropriate (and fashionable) outfits that are also super comfy and practical.  The Express Portofino shirt has become a staple in my closet (it comes in TONS of cute colors and prints), and I love pairing it back to simple black skinnies, basic jewelry, and a fun pump or heel for a little pop of color. I have found this to be a great basic formula for an easy wear-to-work outfit that works for just about any occaision.  Not to mention that this combo also looks fantastic with a blazer for a little more dressed up look!
