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.
You never know what you have until it’s gone. When summer is at it’s hottest we wish it would hurry up and go away. We long for jackets, sweaters, and boots. Of course, the minute it’s over, we immediately dream of spring. Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds? This silky button down is bursting with happy florals. The collar keeps it conservative while the keyhole feels as refreshing as a sunny day. A bright, loose blazer in power pink keeps you warm without ruining the effect. Finally add a shiny, eye catching, metallic purse and the transformation is complete. Who needs spring to feel fresh and brand new? That’s what your wardrobe is for.
Growing up I always wanted to be a Pink Lady, I mean who wouldn’t? And now I get my chance with this incredible “Tough Girl” Faux Leather Moto Jacket. You can’t go classic 1950’s American without blue jeans but who says they’re only for your legs. Changing it up with a soft blue denim button down, and because you don’t want to look like you’re wearing a jumper, unless of course you’re wearing a jumper, make the jeans black, for a more casual take on the black slacks. Pair with complimentary black heels, a roomy black clutch, and add another “E” because you can never have enough Emma.
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.
