When trying to make an impression, either at work or on a date, you have to know your strengths. Use your wardrobe to enhance your best features. Not just your long legs or beautiful smile, but your sweetness or patience. That’s why this outfit is so flattering on Harriet; because she is truly angelic. A holiday skirt in subtle gold or silver quietly celebrates while helping display your inner sparkle. Fitted and flattering and just the right length to show off your legs while preserving your modesty. A delicate white blouse in chiffon or linen with short, fluttering sleeves helps create an air of innocence. Add pale high heels that are tall enough to make the most of your figure but subtle enough not to distract and simple jewelry. Finally, pick a colorful, lady-like purse with pizzazz that can be tucked out of sight or brought out for effect just like your quick wit or dry sense of humor. Perfect for a day at the office, dinner at a romantic cafe, or a holiday party. Or all three in one day with just one outfit! Now that would be heavenly.
Introducing the newly wed Mrs. Ryan Weston! My very good friend Annie is always beautiful, with class and an elegant style that is true to her very soul. To celebrate her natural loveliness and her brilliant new future I wanted to share some pieces from her current closet. I may be the expert in dressing for the office, but Annie is the expert when it comes to embracing the one thing that can never be taught. How to be a lady.
Fall has arrived! Finally! Even though summer is hanging on it’s finally cooled down enough to start wearing my go-to skinny jeans and look for ways to dress them up for the office. A simple white blouse makes a great neutral base to start playing with some color, and nothing says fall like this french terry blazer in wine. The jewel tone is flattering, the cut makes it dressy, and the fabric is so soft it’s almost a sweater. The polka dots give it spice, while this gorgeous, metallic shoulder bag adds glamour. Nude heels are a great way to transition from open-toed sandals of summer into cooler climates. Keeping it professional with minimal jewelry, a novelty ring I picked up on the fly and my favorite charm necklace. “E” is for Emma and I am Emma Woodhouse.
