Jersey (knit) love

IMG_5164

I’ve developed a jersey obsession. Especially jersey knit skirts. They can be dressed up or down, and work for both the office or the weekend. First, I wore my striped knit skirt for work. Since it’s on the shorter side, I paired it with a blazer and flats.

Then, for a more simple look. I paired my new Bailey 44 knit pencil skirt with a sleeveless button down, a simple studded black belt, and black heels.

Dressin’ it up style catch-up

It’s been awhile since I’ve had a chance to blog, but luckily I’ve still been snapping a few outfit shots. Here’s a catch-up of my more work-related outfits.

I love sheath dresses. They’re so versatile, and can easily be dressed up or down. I paired this simple black sheath with a leopard print scarf and black heels.

I posted about my yellow bubble necklace here, and I decided to wear my black one to work with a blazer. Ankle pants, heels, and a blazer dress up a simple white tee.

I love pink and was so upset when my hot pink J Crew skirt ripped, that I was lucky to find this option at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Can’t wait to pair it with black tights for fall!

Bubble necklace take 2! This time I dressed up my chambray shirt with a black pencil skirt, heels, and my black bubble necklace.

I was ridiculously sad about these shoes. I wore them for one day/night, and the soles started falling apart! Super surprising for Cole Haans! Luckily, they were purchased at Nordstrom, so I was able to return them.

Well, there you have it! 5 work outfits for catch-up!

Pink and Green

Seattle summer has finally started, and we’ve been having some incredible weather. To kick off the sunshine post independence day, I paired a pink pencil skirt with a mint green top for work on Thursday.

A Denim Pencil Skirt…

IMG_4223

I brought out my denim pencil skirt for work on Tuesday. Denim skirts are great for casual offices, because you can combine the casual (denim!) with put-together office attire (pencil skirt and heels!). If you’re on the shorter side (like me!), the key for pencil skirts is to make sure that they fit just above the knee (will help elongate your legs), and are fitted but you’re still able to move and breathe.

The skirt is a few years old from Banana Republic, and I paired it with a black skinny belt, James Perse top, and nude heels.

Bib Necklace and a Pencil Skirt

IMG_3693

I went with some girlfriends to see a musical last night (First Date – loved the show for sure!), so I needed an outfit that would work for both work and a night out with my girls. A pencil skirt, top, and statement bib necklace was the perfect combo. Pair it with the belt and blazer for work, then take off the belt and blazer and add a leather jacket for night.

Statement bib necklaces are the perfect way to dress up a simple top.
