Power Lunch

2.27.2012


Alice + Olivia deconstructed blazer (similar look here)
H&M white button down shirt
Cheap Monday Second Skin high waisted jeans
Sam Edelman Lulu two tone boots
Chanel quilted purse
Vintage earrings (similar style here)

Thankfully, it's not often that I have to get dressed up for work, but on those few occasions when I am required to don my very best for a client meeting, it's important to me that my ensemble reflect my personal style, while at the same time still exuding that much-needed professional air.

This is when I'll usually call Micol and ask to raid her closet, as her job requires her wardrobe to be stocked with pieces (like this jacket) that scream, "I'm ready for business."

A pencil skirt or well-tailored dress can often do the trick, but it's fun to channel the boys once in awhile with your own take on the pants suit. Here I stuck to one color palette while playing with proportions on the top and bottom--a fun way of reinterpreting the look for myself. Bright colors or a wide pant leg work just as well.

Pinstripes + Chanel... who says office attire has to be boring?
