This outfit is pretty much my take on office wear: white button down (this time, a tunic), cardigan, pencil skirt, fun touches like the wide patent belt and leopard chapeau. During my 30, I've come to realize how essential these brown boots are to my life. I wear them with black, navy, grey and all other colors, and they somehow blend in just perfectly. The rich chocolaty brown is sadly getting a little scuffed at the toes, but I still love them. (How much? I even polished them. A first for me, but I now have plans to polish all of hubs' shoes. Just as soon as I submit my grad school apps..)
On a different note entirely: I've really fallen hard for a feature in this month's Lucky entitled What Works at Work, and particularly for the "Risk Taker" outfit:
I am just loving the combination of saturated colors, and have been seeking out vibrantly colored pencil skirts for the past few days, dreaming of adding rich emerald green and sapphire blue to my new ruby red.
Any ideas on resources less spendy than J. Crew?
