This week is going to keep me a busy little working bee. And given the circumstances, the very last thing I want to worry about is accidentally putting a run in my tights or creasing my pencil skirt or button down. Typical business-wear is oftentimes just too stiff! And if a girl has to run around, she's going to have to make some minor attire adjustments.
|Dress: Banana Republic / Blazer: Zara|
A cozy wool Banana Republic dress sounded perfect. Easy to move around in and requires little to no maintenance throughout the day. Now, what to wear over the dress? I didn't want to clash textures too drastically with a knit cardigan, and the boat neckline of the dress would make any cropped blazer look silly. So after slight deliberation, I put on a quarter sleeve white Zara blazer.
|Necklace: Forever 21|
|Knee Socks: Steve Madden / Heeled Loafers: Nine West / Bag: Louis Vuitton|
To ensure that my feet would endure the relentless running around, I opted for heeled loafers from Nine West. I could go on for days about how comfortable these are but I'll spare you my shoe memoirs (... at least for today ;) ). The final touch was ditching the black tights and pulling on a pair of Steve Madden knee socks.
Now I put the question to you lovely listeners, what is your professional flair-factor?
Today my flair-factor was daring to bare... my knees! One rarely sees knee socks worn in a business environment, but the polished long blazer and loafers kept me from looking like a girl scout, and more like a lively, young professional.
Please do take a minute or so to peruse day 1 of this style series (by clicking here), and day 2 here. :)
I hope you all had wonderful weekends. Whether your goals for this week are to be super productive, or on the contrary, to be aimlessly relaxed, I wish you all the best of luck on this Monday morning.
'Til Next Time,
