Dress: Ann Taylor. Belt: Anthropologie (love this one too). Shoes: Jimmy Choo. Sunglasses: Gucci. Rings: The Bay.

 

A simple sheath can be a career woman’s best friend.  Always office appropriate, this flattering style of dress can easily take you from day to night.  Not one to shy away from colour, my first instinct was to pair this cheery chartreuse hue with a bold blue pop of colour.  However, this dress looks just as fabulous with a nude pair of heels (as shown in a previous post).

 

For those of you young women starting out in your careers, I highly recommend purchasing a similar style dress in a quality fabric.  It’s a timeless style that you will have in your wardrobe for many years.  My dress is from Ann Taylor which is a great source for day-to-night clothing.  The simple cut also allows you to play with accessories. Here I paired it with an Anthropologie jeweled ribbon belt, but I think next time I’ll wear it with a beautiful statement necklace.  I have my eye on the Nebula lucite necklace from Bauble Bar which I think will look just perfect with this dress.

In The Trenches

Dress: RW&Co (similar). Trench: Bebe (old). Shoes: Joan & David. Clutch: Henri Bendel. Belt: Ann Taylor. Rings: Coach, Kate Spade. Watch: Michael Kors. Necklace: ASOS. Bracelets: BCBG, Forever 21, J.Crew. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

I’ve had this brown satin trench coat for years.  It’s one of those pieces that I always forget I have in my closet, but I’m pleasantly surprised when I rediscover it.  This drop waist dress has been on heavy rotation lately too (also seen in the post Plum Drop).  I hope everyone has a wonderful day and thank you so very much for taking time to visit with me!

 

 

Lots o’ Leopard

Skirt: J.Crew. Jacket: BCBG. Top: Ann Taylor. Shoes: Joan & David (recent). Handbag: Chanel. Necklace: ASOS. Rings: Coach, Kate Spade. Bracelet: H&M. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

While cobalt is one of my favourite colours for Fall, leopard definitely has to be my favourite print.  It’s so fun, feminine, versatile, and bold, yet it can still act as a neutral.  Are you loving leopard for Fall too?
