Back to Business

Usually anything goes at my office, but I had to dress particularly business-like this day. I hate that because it feels like it stifles my creativity. There’s only so much color and oversized jewelry you can have on and still be business-appropriate. But, business doesn’t have to mean boring! Classic colors like navy, camel and red anchor the outfit, but leopard and pleats keep it fun.

Speaking of leopard, remember when I did this post about finding the perfect leopard pump? I never ended up purchasing a pair, but Santa chose this pair and I’m very happy with them 🙂

The Blue Blazer

I grabbed this school boy blazer over the fall, and then couldn’t figure out what to wear it with. (You know my rule of 3). I thought about taking it back, then I realized it was final sale (oops). I wore it once with a khaki suit dress and it looked nice, but I knew I could do better. As it turns out, I can’t. But Kendi Everyday can! I don’t usually see looks on other bloggers that I want to exactly duplicate, but when I saw her post last week in a look-alike blazer, I thought, I have to steal that! Thanks, Kendi 🙂

As a side note, something about having a blue blazer makes me think of that episode of Friends where Joey works as a docent at the museum and tries to save Ross a seat at his table at lunch and Ross shuts him down because people in white coats sit together and people with blue blazers sit together. Anyone else? Just me? Cool.
