 What I’m wearing: Dress- Mango, Shoes- BCBGeneration (similar), Watch- Michael Kors

I love a good cocktail reception just as much as the next gal. But a lot of them tend to happen right after work, and since most of us can’t run home to change, we have to plan our outfit for the whole day. In this post, I’m giving you an outfit idea for what to wear when both the office and cocktail party.

What I’m wearing: 

Outfit 1: Sweater- Vince, Shorts- (similar), Boots- Via Spiga (similar), Bag- Zac Posen (my exact one is sold out, but here’s a very similar one)

Outfit 2: Sweater- Vince, Skirt- Loft (this one might be even cuter!), Shoes- Coach

 I’m in love with this cashmere sweater. All cashmere really. There’s just something about the quality, how durable, yet soft it is, that can’t be beat. And it’s versatile too. Of course, traditionally it’s reserved for the colder months of the year, but I decided to start early and styled this white cashmere sweater two ways for the fall. The first look is perfect for a patio date night on a late October night (you know when you can still wear shorts, but want to pretend it’s fall so you also throw on a sweater), and the second look is great for work or a networking coffee. Read on to see how easy both are to style.

I’ve had this gray dress for years and I never run out of ways to wear it. It reminds me of a skater dress that I could wear with black converse high-tops, and though those days are mostly behind us, there’s something to be said about a youthful piece that can repurposed.

Wearing: Alexander Wang tank, Lou Lou Boutiques skirt (repurposed dress), Whistle & Wild duster, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Michael Kors Sunglasses, (similar) mules

Happy Monday!

I wore this outfit a couple weeks ago and I was really feeling like doing something creative. So I repurposed a dress as a skirt. This ruffle dress (I call it my cupcake dress) has served me well, and I’ve been able to wear it to tons of places this summer. I did a feature on it in a previous blog post about Miami, which you can read here.

 Wearing: Top- Express (similar here, and I also really love this idea), Pants- Loft, Duster- Whistle & Wild (sold out, similar option here), Shoes- Topshop, Earrings- Lou Lou Boutiques (similar here)

Surprise, color! This is the day two outfit of my wear everything in your closet, in order of how it’s hung up challenge. It’s bold, fun, and I really enjoyed sporting this look. Like I wrote in yesterday’s post, it’s helping me get out a bit of a fashion rut and embrace some of the creativity I had lost in my style.

So this top I had bought at Express several years ago, and I always tend to wear it with dark skinny jeans to balance out both the color and the peplum. But I’d done that already and it was time for something different. So what’s different than the usual black? More color of course!

how to wear sparkle to the office

I’ve decided to take on a project with my closet and that project is to wear every piece in my wardrobe; if I can’t bring myself to wear something, it has to go. The catch is that I’m going in order of pieces hung up, which has really started to get the creative juices flowing. No matter the day, if it’s next it has to be incorporated. The goal is to rediscover my clothes, and make room for new loves.

Levi’s and florals

 Wearing: Top- LC Lauren Conrad, Jeans- Levi’s, Shoes- Coach, Sunglasses- Michael Kors, Bag- Zac Posen

 These jeans give my little blogger self life. In a previous decade they may have bordered mom jean territory, but here today, they are effortless perfection. I love the high waist, the buttons, the distressed elements, the cuffed hem. They can be casual or not depending on the pairing, and as I like to say, you just can’t beat that kind of versatility.
