Let’s get serious people! If earlier this week was a fantasy of spring, today it’s all about fall. That means deeper, richer colors, higher necklines, and good old fashioned blue jeans. The feeling is studious and a little artsy. Think back to school, libraries and museums. For inspiration this blazer in jewel toned shades of purple is patterned with paint brush strokes. It reminds you to be creative and make the world your own! Underneath is a lilac button back blouse with long cuffed sleeves and a structured, geometric cut. Even when you remove your jacket, (which you will when the day starts off cool and then warms up), you maintain your professional look. Add to that your favorite pair of blue jeans, (the darker the better), a vintage bag and a neat-as-a-pin updo. Voila! You’ll look ready to tackle any challenge life throws at you. Remember, no one will take you seriously if you don’t take yourself seriously first.
