Another day at the office, gotta project a serious image, yet still show personality…..black basics are always a good place to start….on this day, cropped flared pants by Rag and Bone with a black plaid blouse by Pink Tartan, found some time ago at Revolve…the blouse (100% polyester taffeta) is beautifully tailored and has a finished hem that looks nice enough worn un-tucked…..but the real fun piece here??? The shoes! Aren’t these adorable? They are by Kate Spade, black suede with glitzy block heels and a comfy round toe……… Found them a few months ago – on sale – at the Kate Spade shop on Newbury Street….did I “need” them??? Of course not…..but I am pretty good about following a rule I set for myself: If I am searching for a particular item that I “need” and I find it, then it’s ok to pay full price….if I want/love/desire an item that I really don’t need, I will only consider it if it is on sale. See Peter? I am so thrifty! Lol….
Now back to business – and time to add a jacket….this one by Theory with leather sleeves….when paired with black on the bottom it gives the effect of a suit with a bit more creativity…. Added a few long silver chains, simple stud earrings, and I am ready for the day! Certainly don’t want these shoes hidden under a conference table all morning…..will have to make a few extra trips for coffee……;-)
