Work to Weekend Wear: Parisian

Easy PBonjour, chiclets! I am having a romantic affair with midi/maxi skirts right now (I know, how French of me!) and thought I’d share an easy peasy way to channel your inner bon vivant for the office!

I’m all about being comfortable, but let’s face it, we don’t want to look sloppy either.  Pairing this breezy striped Bobo House tank with a blush tone is so effortlessly chic, yet totally comfy and office-appropriate! Add a floral scarf (floral + stripes = genius) and some fun Parisian accessories (Read: Eiffel Tower everything) and you’ll be the envy of the office! Psst! Check out Bobo House’s French inspired tees too… I’m a big fan!

Work to Weekend Wear: Italian Romance

Screen shot 2013-03-13 at 8.56.54 PMI LOVE these warm spring days, they remind me of romantic afternoons strolling through town in Milano, Italy.  Alas, our offices don’t appeal to our European alter-egos… le sigh… but that doesn’t mean that we can’t dress the part!  There’s nothing better than a fun flowy sequin top paired with a structured tomato red blazer and relaxed suit short, and this color combo screams ROMANTIC! For a little added luxury, don a silky lace bralette underneath, even if no one else sees it, you’ll feel like a million bucks… it’s the perfect outfit for a long spring day, with enough comfort for the office and just the right amount of sultry sophistication!

Shop the look: Topshop red crepe neck jacket, Madewell sequin drape tank, Madewell ‘Laugh Cry Repeat’ shorts, Alice + Olivia laser cut mirrored pumps, Honeydew polka-dot bralette, Madewell skinny patent belt, DVF lips mini clutch

Work to Weekend Wear: Envelope Skirts for the Office

Envelope skirts are asymmetrically shaped (almost origami style) like an envelope and they’re hot on the fashion wire right now.  The sexy cut gives just enough leg to be seductive without offering too much peek-a-boo.  Plus, the trend can be … Continue reading
