Workin’ It Wednesday: The Grey Blazer + A Stella & Dot Surprise!

For my second edition of Workin’ It Wednesday, I went with eyelet, leopard, and polka dots. I’ve had this grey blazer for a while but I find lighter colored blazers trickier to style. I think the grey looks great with purple or navy. What do you think?

New Series! Workin’ It Wednesday: A Nautical Approach

IMG_7572-color

Anything goes for a regular day at my office, but my job often requires me to dress business or business casual. I got great feedback from my recent post about making business attire not so boring, so I’ve decided to make a regular column on incorporating color, patterns, textures, and jewelry into a business professional wardrobe. I think these outfits can get you through most work scenarios, but would also work well for brunch with family, wedding/baby showers, church, or any other day when you want to step it up a notch. Look forward to frequent “Workin’ It Wednesday” features! 🙂

The navy striped top and azure blue blazer gave this look a nautical feel, but the tweed and nude pumps anchored it (pun intended!). I splashed in color with my pink bag and orange bracelet. You could make this more neutral with a brown or black bag, a solid-colored blouse, or pearls. Or if you wanted to make it bolder, you could add a leopard print shoe and more bracelets! Depending on where I was going or who I was going to meet, I would make those types of adjustments. But the underlying concept–tweed, stripes, and a colorful blazer–is just as work appropriate as a black pencil skirt and button down shirt, but a lot more fun 🙂

I also threw on this scarf to play up the pink and orange since it was quite chilly this morning!
