Sometimes you wake up in the morning with a bright and cheerful outlook because everything is running smoothly and going according to plan.  The sun is brighter, the sky is bluer, and your hopes and dreams are finally coming into fruition.  So what else could I wear but a colorful, optimistic, radiant floral dress blooming in shades of fuchsia, yellow and green.  It’s slim cut, fitted skirt, and capped sleeves are elegant and flattering.  Paired with coral, suede, slingback heels and a cream clutch covered in cutouts, nothing can distract me from my positive outlook.  NOTHING.

Easy Does It

Some people act like dressing up and being fashionable is this huge effort.  Like it gets in the way of having a productive day.  But dressing up can often be so much simpler and easier than dealing with a long list of separates or wondering how formal an outfit should be.   For example, this simple and stunning, full skirted, blue dress with a flirty notched neckline.  It’s clean lines are flattering on a wide range of body types, and can easily go from day to night.  Add to that a cream colored clutch subtly decorated in tiny cutouts, and pale mint, opal stud earrings and getting ready to look your best is as easy as 1-2-3.  Literally.

It’s Showtime

Launching Emma Approved’s new business model by arranging our first post restructuring event? Check. Arrange a meeting with a prominent and stylish businessman about this new direction? Double check. Dressing with the appropriate amount of sophistication and bravado to seal the deal? Well, let’s see. Fitted dark blue jeans for a casual tone, and a long, loose hot pink blouse for an attention stealing burst of color. Classic wayfarer sunglasses for a touch of old Hollywood summertime style. A light, airy, cream clutch with petite laser cutouts that manages to be busy, orderly, and relaxingly simple all at once. So far so good, but what makes this outfit stand out from all the others I wear? A crisp, clean, sleeveless white blazer with a caped back for an operatic flair. Perfection. In this outfit, you command whatever room you’re in.
