Harriet is finally back to work full time after a much needed break, and that means ditching the comfort clothes and dressing for the office.  When you experience an emotional upheaval that has you questioning what you want, sometimes its best to start by reminding yourself of who you are.  I know Harriet well enough by now that I can tell what she’s thinking by what she chooses to wear, and this outfit with all it’s sweetness and charm, is Harriet’s way of expressing how very young and innocent she’s feeling.  Starting with this sleeveless, pleated blouse in peach with a wide peter pan collar.  The collar is decorated in black overlay with an almost childlike design of floral cutouts, both eye catching and adorable. Next, because she’s so organized (best assistant ever!), she coordinates the collar with a black A line skirt with a rich, timeless damask print subtly woven throughout.  Lastly, she accessorizes simply and practically with a classic black tote big enough to carry around anything she might need throughout the day.  This is just one step, and one day soon Harriet will take another, until she’s ready to dress like the sophisticated, powerful woman I know she can be.
