I bet you thought it was over

3 Jan

I’ll bet you thought it was over, but it’s not. It’s totally not.

We’ve missed you, dear readers, and are ready to kick off the New Year by returning to triumphantly share our Christmas favorites, sales finds and other office-appropriate fashion must haves. So, come along as we re-launch Office Pretty in 2013.

Dots and necklace Jcrew green

I’ve posted my press-conference-chic ensemble above. Nothing says “breaking health care policy news” like a statement necklace paired with polka dots. Nothing.

That’s Tight(s)

25 Oct

The falling snow signals the beginning of something big for me – a reason to pull out my tights. Yesterday, in anticipation of the cooler weather, I wore a new pair of striped tights with this classic black dress. I like the combo quite a lot, if I may say so myself.

Here are a few other fun tights to mix in to your work wardrobe this fall and winter.

Obsessed: Marc by Marc Jacobs Sweater Dresses

1 Oct

As you may know by now, I am a huge fan of comfortable and easy dresses that you can wear to the office. Today, I’m sharing one of my fall wish list items – a sweater dress. I think they are flattering, classic, warm and comfy, and who doesn’t love a combination like that? Three of my absolute favorites come courtesy of Marc Jacobs.

What I love most about this dress is the flattering effect of the vertical stripes and thin, solid waistline.

This jeweled collar dress could easily go from day to night.

I love the simplicity and slightly longer skirt on this sweater dress. (I would definitely add a skinny belt right at the base of my ribs to accentuate my waist.)

Dotty

I just celebrated my birthday and received the cute polka dot top below (just in time for fall!). Here’s how I plan on dressing it up and dressing it down.
