Stretching Summer

29 Aug

Despite the current heat wave in Denver, there’s no point in denying that summer is on its way out and fall is creeping in. As a last hurrah, I’ve been admiring bold floral fabrics. While some of them decidedly say “summer,” I’ve found quite a few that can carry you into fall.

Zara – a store I plan to hit up more than once on my upcoming vacation – had more variety in floral prints than any other single store I found online.

Zara Printed Floral Tunic  Р$60 РAdd some tights and heels and wear it into early fall.

Zara Printed Tunic Blouse – SALE – $19.90 – Tuck it into a fall-weight pencil skirt and you’re good to go.

Zara Printed Tunic with Cap Sleeves – SALE – $19.99 – This + jean jacket + brown boots = Fall

Boden Scoop Tunic Dress – $118 – I just purchased this cutie. I’ll wear it with wedges until it’s too cold to go without tights and riding boots.

Anthro Floral Still Life Pullover – $148 – Anthro suggests adding this gauzy tee to a pencil skirt for a preppy look. We agree!

Colorful Casual Friday

16 Mar

Y’all, it’s Friday. Let’s celebrate by getting all dressed up keeping it casual.

Laura’s geek chic glasses, color blocked scarf and classic navy blazer make a great casual Friday ensemble. I love that she incorporated a staple item with some trendy accessories for a great transitional (is it winter? is it spring?) outfit.

Can you guess who else recently turned to this same great combo? I’ll give you a hint: she’s British.

Staple: Blazer

9 Mar

Around here we live by the philosophy that the foundation of a solid work wardrobe is a set of staple items you can always count on. Today, we pay our respects to the blazer: that tailored and pulled-together piece that’s versatile enough for a client meeting, a weekend brunch and everything between. Our go-to blazers are from JCrew and Zara.

Color Pop

13 Apr

Add style, youth and a personal touch to a work-appropriate LBD by adding a pop of color on your feet (get the details on the shoes below at Polyvore). These shoes make me want to do a jig.
