How I Wore It

I have discovered 2 things: 1) I need better lighting LITERALLY everywhere I go, and 2) I need a better phone camera.  I maybe also need to find a better place to take photos than in my office's bathroom ;-)

I love mixing up colors and textures for interesting looks

Skirt - The Limited (love the fit of their skirts!)
Shell - Ellie Tahari

How I Wore It: JCrew No. 2 Pencil and Jackie combo

As some of you know I am trying to make a better effort with accessories.  Not always the easiest task in a conservative office environment, especially when I like hot pink, bows and glitter :-) 

Here's todays outfit:

Pencil Skirt - JCrew (No. 2 Pencil in double serge wool)
Cardigan - JCrew (Jackie Cardigan - one of my all time faves!)
Shell - Banana Republic

How I Wore It: 9-5 edition

Ever since I started working I have had less and less time for my poor neglected blog.  I was reading a post on an on-line forum the other day with someone looking for blogs with inspiration for the business casual working set.  Well my friends that's me, although it's not exactly 9 to 5, it is a professional corporate environment with a business casual dress code. 

Basically, expect to see more business casual and less casual, although I suspect I'm not exactly doing a great job of either lately......
