outfit post: pink striped top, black pencil skirt, jean jacket


Inspiration - Gap

I love love love this outfit! I just bought this bright striped top from Loft (40% off $20 = $12!) and it makes all the neutral pieces I already own seem new & fun. I'm not quite color crazy enough to add the yellow shoes (also don't own any) but this outfit feels fun and happy and bright and summery!

outfit post: pink and orange stripe top, pink belt, orange shoes


Inspiration - Ann Taylor Loft

Bright work outfit today! I love everything except maybe the orange espadrilles - I think they might be one item too much with all the color. Unfortunately I only packed one pair of shoes with any heel and these pants are too long to wear with flats. So, I'm just going to embrace all the color!

outfit post: black and white striped dress, pink cardigan


Inspiration - Ann Taylor Loft

When I was home last week I had a mini shopping spree at Ann Taylor Loft. It had been months and months of business travel with zero shopping - so I decided to treat myself. I bought yesterday's dress, a striped pink & orange top, pink shorts and this black and white dress.  Super comfy & easy. Again this outfit is more casual then my typical work attire but it fits in here.

outfit post: coral dress, teal bubble necklace


Inspiration - Ann Taylor Loft

First day of my work travel iPhone photo outfits from Rio. I have been working here off and on since October (three months here total) so I'm pretty comfortable with the office dress & culture. (On my first trip at the beginning of the project I wore full suits to make a good first impression.)

But now that I know what the level of casual is acceptable for the office environment and how hot it is here - although many of the guys still wear suits - so I went with a cute dress & a fun necklace. This would be a casual Friday outfit at my company's office.

     Peach dress - Ann Taylor Loft

outfit posts: floral dress, boots, crochet cardigan


 Inspiration - Minka Kelly

It's getting warm in Florida so this is my last boots inclusive post. Also, I had to last minute travel to Brazil this week for work - so I don't have any photos with my good camera saved up - that means after today I'll be posting iPhone photos of what I wear for work travel this week.

It's hot here - so I packed hot weather work outfits for a pretty casual office environment.

This is a fun casual errands running outfit. I wore it on a lightly rainy day. I think it's good winter transition into spring look. And it's almost totally from Target. I love love love Target for great deals on cute clothes. 

Dress:
     Floral dress - Target
Top:
     Crochet cream cardigan - Target
Shoes:
     Brown boots - Alfani (Macy's brand)
Accessories:
     Amber pendant necklace - F21
     Knee socks - Target

outfit posts: pink cardigan, floral, pencil skirt and boots

 
Inspiration - Weardrobe

Love the bright colors. The combination of patterned blouse, bright cardigan and neutral bottom always reminds me of the TLC show What Not To Wear. It's a great work outfit uniform.

Not 100% sure about the flat boots with the pencil skirt so I redid the outfit using nude pumps and liked it better.

outfit post: chambray dress and boots


Inspiration - Reese Witherspoon

When I bought this dress from H&M it fit me a lot like how Reese's dress fits her in the inspiration photo. Comfy cute and casual. I loved it so much when I wore it.

And then today when I went to put it on to take a photo... it has totally different fit! Uh-oh. I must have run it through the dryer because now it is a very tight & super short mini dress. It is way too small for me. How sad. But I'm still including the photo because the idea behind the outfit can still be seen.

I will have to put chambray dress back on my list of things to keep my eye out to buy.

Dress:
     Chambray dress - H&M
Shoes:
     Boots - Alfani (Macy's brand)
Accessories:
     Tan boot socks - Target

outfit post: green cardigan, white button down, perl necklace bunch


Inspiration - The Satorialist

This is my favorite picture ever from The Satorialist. It's classic but current, dressed up but informal, sophisticated but humorous... and it's my favorite color green ever.

I also submitted this outfit for the What I Wore Winter Remix Challenge. (I'm the very last picture of the post.)

outfit post: tie blouse, blazer, cream pant


Inspiration - Saks Fifth Avenue 

I typically only wear my suit jacket with my matching suit bottoms. The idea of copying this inspiration photo is to introduce more ways to incorporate a jacket that doesn't involve the matching bottom. I like how spring and slightly nautical the navy & cream feel together.

outfit post: long sleeved mini dress



 Sister week day 4! I love this dress. It's slightly retro 80s, has great print and shows off her amazing legs. She chose to make the outfit a little more feminine then the inspiration photo by wearing gold jewelry as accents and a nude pump instead of no jewelry and a hard black boot.

     Paint splatter patterned 3/4 sleeved mini dress - Consignment Shop
Shoes:
     Nude pumps - Aldo
Accessories:
     Gold Watch - Michael Kors
     Chevron gold necklace - F21

outfit posts: red dress, red necklace


Inspiration - Gap 

Today's sister outfit is a fun red dress. The picture's lighting doesn't do the pretty color of the dress and layered similarly colored necklace justice. I love the red over red texture - she looks totally amazing!

Shoes:
     Nude pumps - Aldo

Accessories:

Today's sister post's (my sister is guest appearing in for the week!) inspiration is based on a color combination from a mannequin found floating on Pinterest. I love the neutral colors with the pop of turquoise. Cool, summery, chic.
