This top has to be one of the more fun additions to my closet recently. I love the ruffle detail that’s on the front as well as the shoulder area. The peplum silhouette gives it a free and flowy feel as well. I paired this with jeans and d’orsay flats but I could just as easily make this ruffle top appropriate for work by pairing with trousers or a pencil skirt, and a light blazer.

This past weekend we played tourists in our city – strolling through Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39, and then, culminating the day by going on a boat tour of the bay. As many times as I’ve driven up and down the Golden Gate bridge, or stood at it’s base at Fort Point, it’s still an amazing structure to gaze at from its underbelly. If you’re ever in San Francisco, I highly recommend checking it out!

Basics are called basics for a good reason. They’re staples in your closet that can be easily paired with fancier pieces or together for a timeless look. I choose to do the former with this look as there’s something about pairing different shades of blue that always calls my name. This look can be worn for casual Fridays or going out – simply switch out that work bag for a clutch and instant transformation.

Oxford button down (similar style here {only $11.99!} & here)

Blue heels {final clearance – $195 discount!} (similar style here & here)

Midi skirts can be intimidating to style due to their fullness and length. That’s what I used to think but it was before I played around with some key things that have now changed my mind. Whether you’re 4’10” or 5’10”, it’s all about balance. A few things I always try to adhere to are:
(1) pair the skirt with a neutral or a color that’s found on the skirt
(2) don’t let the skirt swallow you – define the waist by tucking in your top or pairing it with a crop top
(3) if the skirt is patterned, choose a neutral shoe to pair it with as to not compete
I love this look for work – it’s a good way to wear a more playful skirt but still look professional.

How to style a stripe dress // Style Me Wednesday

With temperatures going up, the last thing I’ll want to reach for are pants when going to work. Instead, it’s about this time that I’ll start wearing dresses on heavy rotation. But one thing to keep in mind is keep dresses work appropriate. I usually stay away from anything that’s not short sleeve or longer but that’s not always easy. So, I’ll usually opt for a lightweight cardigan or a blazer to keep things more professional. Then, when I step outside I can easily discard the outer layer and still keep cool.

For this stripe dress, I added a cute gold bow belt to highlight the waist, added a navy blazer, and paired it with black bow heels for the perfect work outfit. I can easily turn this day look into a nighttime look by getting rid of the blazer and belt, and add some cute earringss and a clutch.
