Off to a networking coffee date. Since the weather was fantastic I opted for layered tanks and a light cardigan. I’m so happy to be wearing sandals again too!

I’ve been dusting off my networking skills lately. At the end of last year hardly a week passed that I didn’t have some sort of networking event. I took a break for a couple of months and am now back at it (but at a lower frequency). Comfortable shoes – check. Professional but not stuffy – check.

I was looking back on some old photos and I came across this beauty. I loved it so much that I decided to create a casual version. This is literally the only pair of flats I own other than flip flops and tennis shoes and I have to admit, I think this would look much better with a pair of heels!

I know I’ve mentioned before that I was a little hesitant about adding leopard print to my wardrobe. Too much of it can be tacky but I’ve come to love it as accent pieces. I think it adds the right amount of flair to this simple outfit. And if I’m not mistaken, this is the first time that I’ve worn the leopard belt and shoes at the same time. This may just be the largest dose of leopard you’ll see on this blog!

It’s nice to go back to basics. Beige and black with some gold accents is classy and timeless. These are two other items that I’ve had for a while but have not worn together. I like the look of the button down with the cardigan. A classic silhouette with a classic color combination. Don’t be afraid to embrace time tested trends.

Ok, I wouldn’t wear these pleather pants to work but I like the blazer + button down combination. Certainly a good happy hour outfit. The mix of gold in the accessories warms up the color pallet of the outfit. Where would you wear this outfit?
By the way, these fabulous heels are currently for sale in my Threadflip closet (along with some other great items).

These yellow jeans have turned out to be more versatile than I originally imagined. They are season agnostic and can be paired with so many different colors (seen also here and here). Although this could be an office appropriate outfit, I like it as an out-and-about kind of outfit. Where would you wear it?
Thank you to everyone who entered the Fab Five Giveaway. I got such a great response that I may just have to do another one in the near future. The lucky winner is Amber. Congratulations! Check your email for details.
I’m happy to wear boots with a skirt. It’s one of the few Fall trends that I really love. I’m on the hunt for black leather, high heeled boots to replace this pair but I have not yet found the perfect ones (in the running). I like the simple color palette of this outfit. The bold polka dots and single colored accessory are stylish ways to make the simple colors be SHAZAM instead of *yawn*.
Make sure to check back on Monday (11/26) for your chance to win my Fab Five Giveaway!
These are the shoes that started it all; my first pair of heels over 2″ (see a close up shot here). They taught me the benefit of a platform and the comfort of good shoes. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that I pretty much only wear heels now. I guess you could call them my training-wheels heels! I’ve had them for several years but the color (burgundy/wine/oxblood) is all the rage so I had to figure out a good outfit for them. I’ve been layering more since the weather has been warm during the day but cools quickly as soon as the sun sets (which is at 4:30 pm which is utterly obnoxious).
Generally the outfits I post are what I wear to work. I’m lucky to work in Advertising where I am able to put my own interpretation on “business casual.” Pairing jeans with blazers is one of my favorite ways to dress down business wear and make it fun. This outfit would easily transition to drinks after work (not that I do that much anymore).
How do you make work wear fun?
