Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend :)  After a week of really beautiful and unexpected warm weather, we’re now back to temperatures more relative to this time of year.  As long as the sun is still shining though, I’m happy.  Today’s work wear inspiration incorporates one of my new favorite color combinations: cranberry and camel.  I love the deep berry shade paired with a warm neutral perfect for this season.  Leather and suede are great textures to begin introducing into your work wardrobe this season: particularly in shades of warm brown and cognac.  This pencil skirt and these suede heels are great staples which can be paired with so many other looks.  A statement necklace breaks up the solidity, and complements the v-neck style of this sweater.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!  Thank you for stopping by :)

Today I’ve styled an easy work wear look with solid neutrals and a pop of print with this super soft oversized plaid scarf.  Every autumn/winter season Zara comes out with the best blanket scarves.  I love how this black and white style adds dimension to an otherwise simple look.  When it’s not yet Friday and all I want to do is throw on jeans, this look is a great alternative.  An oversize knit sweater paired with a stretchy ponte dress with an interesting hem is both comfortable and professional :)

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I love that it’s Wednesday already — thanks long weekend!! Today’s neutral look is dressed up a bit with a fun animal print shift dress and draped wool jacket.  I love the contrasting faux leather sleeves and faux leather belt of this jacket.  It’s different from any other style I have.  It’s so easy to throw on and tie, or wear open and draped.  I’ve worn this jacket almost every day over the last few weeks, and I sometimes wear it throughout the day at work because although it’s wool (and keeps me so warm!) it’s also lightweight, so I can easily move around in it without feeling restricted or heavy.  My office is freezing and I’ve enjoyed wearing this as a throw-on layer over pretty much everything.  Plus, for the next two days, this jacket and everything else at Shopbop is 25% off!  I’m loving this tonal coat, these d’Orsay suede pumps, these black skinny jeans, this cuff bracelet, and this bag!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
