Lavender Look

After the warm weather earlier in the week, I just couldn’t let the spring look go. Thursday was much cooler, so I needed a couple layers to stay warm without a coat. I decided to go with a lavender spago blouse from Brooks Brothers and build my outfit around that. I threw on some black pants (tried to take the easy way out) and something just wasn’t right, so I switched to some light gray. Bingo. Threw on a great navy blazer (an incredible Tahari piece I managed to snag at the Bay Ridge TJMaxx for $49 – originally $228!) and some patent nude Cole Haan pumps and I was set. Finished off the outfit with simple accessories and makeup.

Wear To Work Mani: A Crewed Interest

Tonight I was really feeling this season’s tangerine tango color, but sadly, I can’t get away with tangerine (much less the shimmery or glitter tangerine polish I really wanted to wear) for the office. I decided to go with Essie’s A Crewed Interest from their Spring 2012 collection.

This peachy polish reminds me of a classic pink polish with just a hint of tangerine. I think it’s a great way to pull such a bold trend into your professional look!

As always, I started and finished this mani with my Seche Clear and Seche Vite.

How do you incorporate not-so-office-appropriate trends into your professional wardrobe?
