Another #workinggirlwardrobe Look

Last Tuesday I gave you my easy formula for figuring out what to wear to work (check it here).  I then applied that formula for my last Wear and Share Wednesday post (check it here) and now FINALLY here’s another look.

Formula = sheer sleeveless blouse + pencil skirt = #workinggirlwardrobe

Day sequins are never a bad idea!  You just have to know how to wear them, like on this blouse from The Limited (holiday 2012).  The embellishment is anchored in neutral colors; grey and white, simple enough to let those sequin shine!  I paired it with my grey pencil skirt from Express, a blingy hematite cuff bracelet (mark. Cuff Link Bracelet), a white bag with hematite chain detailing (mark. High Style Convertible Bag) and and white nails with Kate from Julep.

My pencil skirt is a fuller cut and hits right under the knee so to make the look work for me I need to make sure I have on the right shoes.  Ones that are open (no ankle straps) and have a decently tall heel are needed to elongate the leg.  These Statuesque Style Heels ($40) are more than ideal with their glam d’Orsay style in a woven metallic fabric.  These are one of those styles that will work year round, match a ton of things in your closet and have just enough detailing to keep them interesting!  You can get them at my eBoutique.

I think today’s formula proved successfull:

Sequined Sheer Sleeveless Blouse + Light Grey Pencil Skirt + Metallic d’Orsay Pumps + Hematite Jewelry + White Nails + White Bag = success!

 

 

 

 

 

 

How I Wore It – Shift Dress

Shifting seasons is easy with the right pieces.  Yesterday I showed you my inspiration for 3 constant trends, the shift dress, the skinny pant and safari chic, today its how I’m wearing it.

The shift dress for me means clean lines, and what’s cleaner than a an all white one from White House Black Market.  When tasked with making the trend my own I immediately go for my favorite color scheme… black and white!  Nothing is more chic, always on trend and always classy.  For my accessories I’m wearing all mark. starting with the White Now Necklace ($22) Studs and Style Stretch Belt ($16) Perfect Timing Watch, Star Studded Earrings, Black Facet Ring and Straight Up Sassy Heels all in and out of the sale section at my eBoutique.

Staying Classy with the Class Act Bag

Staying Classy with the Class Act Bag

The finishing touch to my take on the shift dress is my handbag, the Class Act Bag ($45).  Very classic in shape and structure but super chic and functional.  The zippered pockets allow for organization but still give you the room of the full size of the bag and the front pocket is perfect for keys phone and quick grabs.  This is one of those classic bags that should def be in you wardrobe.  Especially if you want to stay classy San Diego.  You can get the Class Act Bag at http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com
