What I’d Wear to the Office If I, Ya Know, Had an Office

white blazer, black metallic printed pants

My daily work attire is a pair of sneakers and some yoga pants, but if I did have to go into an office to, like, um, I don’t know…bring one of my roommates lunch?…this would be my idea of business causal. A blazer, simple heels, and a touch of rock ‘n roll with the metallic printed pants and necklace.

A Pop of Blue

Black & white outfit with a pop of blueI don’t know about you, but I always find myself wearing a ton of black in the winter. Every time I get dressed to go out at night, it’s like oh, what a surprise, black heels, black skirt and a black and white blouse! And when all photographs of me from November to March are essentially a pale face bobbing around in a sea of black clothing…something has to change.

The easiest way for me to add color to my winter wardrobe is with accessories and bags. A bright necklace or colorful, patterned handbag can make a black-and-white outfit look a lot more exciting. The Perfect Clutch must have been reading my mind because they graciously sent me this bright blue envelope clutch recently, and it makes for the perfect pop of color.

Black (and White and Silver) Friday

Black leather-look cuffed pants, white blouse and strapped heelsHonestly, going to a mall on Black Friday sounds about as fun to me as going to the Apple Store the day a new iPhone is released or Town Hall the day after resident parking stickers expire. No. Thanks. But Black Friday shopping online? While I sit on the couch in my post-Thanksgiving sweatpants, fat, happy and slightly hungover? Oh HELL to the YES.

One website you should visit while binge shopping for workout clothes/active wear today is Lolë. They reached out to me a while ago, and in addition to their zip-ups and yoga pants, I especially loved the concept of their Yellow Label. All of the Yellow Label coats for sale have been donated (some by celebrities), and proceeds go to Ample Harvest, a charity helping the fight against huger and malnutrition. Kyle Richards (yes, look at me, I’m talking about The Real Housewives again) has a gorgeous coat up for sale right now here, with the minimum contribution starting at $40. Black leather-look cuffed pants, white blouse and strapped heels

Usually any online shopping I do on Black Friday honestly ends up being for…myself (worst Santa ever), so I’m going to try to refrain altogether. But thanks to companies using the buy-one-give-one model it is kinda possible to shop for numero uno while still giving…
