Wear-To-Work








Shirt// Pants// Handbag c/o // cable ring 

Heels (sold out, similar)// Sunglasses// Monogram necklace

Watch// engraved bracelet// White link bracelet 

I always receive a lot of e-mails asking what I wear to work. Honestly, my work wardrobe is slightly uninspiring. A few days a week, I really try and put in some effort, but the outfit in this post is pretty standard work attire for me. 

I like to be comfortable and for that, I dress simply. In the winter, I pretty much never wear a dress or skirt because it's just not practical with the freezing temps. As spring starts to arrive, I reach for more dresses and skirts which is what I love the most!! I always put on bracelets in the morning and by mid morning, they're off because it drives me nuts while typing on the computer! 

The pants in this post are one of my most favorite pairs of pants that I own. I wear them so much, I should probably buy another pair (especially because they now come in many colors and even prints!). They're super comfortable and I love that they are cut in a skinny ankle style, but the fabric is dressier. I wear these for work and with a cute top to go out on the weekends. I even wear them as though they were leggings with oversized cashmere and flats. The best part? They don't need to be ironed. Sometimes when I don't have an outfit picked out the night before, these are so easy to grab because they don't need ironing in the morning.

I just got this bag and I am soooooo in love. It's a gorgeous creamy pebbled leather with SO many pockets. I use my Mansur Gavriel bag daily, but during the spring/summer, I wanted something more seasonally appropriate, especially because I ween myself off of black during these seasons. This bag totally fits the bill because it has the satchel handle as well as a shoulder handle. It's huge. It has a padded iPad sleeve built in and phone pockets and zip compartments. I will be able to comfortably bring my sandals in the bag as a change of shoes which is necessary for walking the city blocks! 

Also, if you are a working woman, this white shirt is your best friend. Brooks Brothers makes it in a bevy of cuts, but I prefer the classic. It looks so crisp for the workday. I also love it even more with distressed denim and heels for a weekend look. What do you typically wear to work? Have a fabulous day! 

Yours,
