1 Banana Republic necklace, 2 outfits

I love buying jewelry, but when it comes to adding them to work outfits, I usually don’t get around to it.  I’m not sure why..maybe I just don’t have time to think about how to incorporate them in my morning rush.  But when looking at Claire Danes outfit the other day, I realized how much jewelry can dress up an otherwise plain work outfit.

So, to show another example of that, here are 2 outfits for work with one lace bib Banana Republic necklace.

Left: lace bib Banana Republic necklace / ModCloth black blazer / Fluxus purple tee / Rich & Skinny jeans / All Black flats

Right: lace bib Banana Republic necklace / Alexander Wang draped dress / Stella McCartney black pumps

Casual Friday: ASOS heart sweater / green Seven Jeans / Oasap lace-up flats 

1 Anthropologie fox print shirt worn 3 ways

Yup, this shirt has a fox print on it! Animal print on shirts and dresses is a bit of a trend – I’ve seen horses, swans, dogs, etc.  They’re a fun way to show personality and wear something a little different in your work outfits.  Here are 3 ways to wear the Anthropologie fox print shirt to the office:

Fox shirt: Anthropologie

Brown skirt: Dorothy Perkins / Brown skinny cords: J Brand / Bootcut jeans: Hudson

1 polka dot ModCloth dress, 2 ways

I like a lot of things about the ModCloth dress below:

  • It’s polka dot – a fun, on-trend subtle print
  • It’s black and white – so it goes with many color combinations and is professional for work
  • It’s sleeveless – a great transition piece for summer to fall when you add a sweater

Because it’s so versatile, there are many ways you can wear this dress!  Here are 2 of them that are work-appropriate.  What would you wear with it?

Polka dot dress: ModCloth

(Left) Flats: Diane von Furstenberg / Bracelet: Max & Chloe / Black cardigan: Mossimo for Target

Cobalt blue pants 3 ways

In addition to mint green, cobalt blue is one of the big color trends this season.  The other day at my office, some of us girls noticed that I was wearing a cobalt blue dress, someone else was wearing cobalt blue pants, another person was wearing a cobalt blue shirt and I think there were others too with that color.  If you want to be a part of this trend, I suggest getting a pair of cobalt blue pants.  It is a bit of a tricky color to get creative with, but there are options, like these 3 outfits:

Cobalt blue skinny jeans – Fade to Blue

White blouse – Gracia

Black blazer – Esley from ModCloth

Cobalt blue skinny jeans – Fade to Blue

Polka dot puff sleeve top – Forever 21

Cobalt blue skinny jeans – Fade to Blue 

Pink chambray top – Target
