  • Kaleido Mind

    perfect as usual….what i wouldnt give for your wardrobe!!

  • Kacrates

    wow i love this.

    the hair once again kills me. what kinda cut is that?

  • Yasmeen

    It's hard to keep color alive in the winter, for me, at least. I always end up wearing really muted colours and sort of blending in with the environment.

    This outfit is really chic though. I love it.

  • Yasmeen

    Oh, also, I was wondering you'll be posting about how you make your jewelry some time in the future. I'm really interested :]


  • Leslie

    the lesbian look looks good on you!

    Really fantastic. Those sunglasses suit you perfectly!

  • welcome to my jungle

    Oh my god…this outfit is just amazing!


  • Lauren

    Love your bag and your "corporate" look.. your taste is impeccable : )

  • Melissa

    love those shoes! they atleast look like they'd be warmer than your average pumps!

    i'd love for you to check out some photos from a photoshoot i did! (granted i'm in college and not a professional or anything!). i've just posted some on my blog:

  • Jessica

    I'm loving your minimalist feel, and the way you stayed true to yourself by mixing textures. It's definitely my favorite way to do things.

  • The Pantry Drawer

    love those sunnies!! great alternative to the run of the mill suit!

  • pancakeSTACKER

    Your version of boardroom chic is beautiful! I love it! The white shirt is my favorite!

  • eM Ieva

    You look very nice 🙂 I love your boots and bag.


  • Samantha Hutchinson

    Every time I visit your blog I think about getting a pixie cut because you make it look SO good!



    i've gotta tell you… your hair is god.damn.awesome.

    my hair's been in a pixie cut for about a year now, but i just admire how you've been able to grow it out longer and play around with it a bit. it looks so great! how do you style it the way you do, into wonderful long, messy mops?

    basically….you rule, my friend.


  • Emma

    That blouse is absolutely fabulous! I follow you religiously and actually have my own streetstyle blog. I am holding a personal style giveaway. The best 3 looks posted score some classic Chanel makeup and will be featured on my site.

  • Lainey

    My goodness those shoes. My jaw literally dropped to the floor when I saw them. They're every bit victorian, punk rock, with a little bit of prep mixed in. Perfection.

  • Julia

    Perfect "corporate" outfit. How to you manage to keep your toes from freezing off? I live in Shanghai and its about 4 degrees C. I want to look cute, I want to wear heels but seems almost impossible as I can never feel my toes!

  • Esther

    most gorgeous boardroom attire ever <3 i'm in the midst of interviews for my first job & this is so inspiring!


    Not gonna lie that is one of the most fashionable "suits" I have seen in a while.

  • Sylvia

    oh my gosh! this is thee perfect boardroom look! That meeting must've been very glamorous!

    i wander, i wonder

  • Att ha det gott

    I like your idea of a business suit! Still fashionable.

  • Sarah

    love your version of boardroom chic. glad to hear too that you wore a coat. not always a fan of juicy but your bag is a home run.

  • Yum Huynh

    I really love your hair.
    My hair is very short too but I can't make it look good like that >.

  • Gabby / Gypsy*Diaries

    LOVE the outfit….especially the shoes!!!!!

  • ediot

    what a brilliant chic and sleek look. LOVE it.
    amazing photos


  • Aoife

    I too am obsessed with your hair. I have it short also and would kill for that texture, but with my curls if I don't straighten it I end up with an unintentional 'Rihanna'. Which I can NOT pull off.

    Love the blog!

  • Natasha

    WOW! I love this! Everything is perfect! You have such amazing style xxx

  • The Odd and Chic

    Your jacket gives it the perfect touch. While I love the more elaborate, glammed up creations on you, the minimalist look also suits you perfectly!


  • Lisa Griffin

    wow how did you get this much snow yesterday?? i am waking up to a beautiful 9 inch blanket this morning! you look great and i'm obsessed with those shoes!

  • Insomnia

    I'm blown away! A great career awaits the girl in the gorgeous suit!

  • ThE fAsHiOn WoRsHiPeR

    Such a great take on the modern career girl…you nailed it 🙂

    XoXO-Kelli K

  • ClosetConfections

    Such a great alternative to the traditional suit! Women's suits usually leave me uninspired, but I love the way you've mixed separates to create your corporate look.


  • Kim

    This look "suits" you well (haha, lame joke ;))

  • The Fancy Teacup

    So sophisticated and charming, I adore it! The boucle jacket paired with the felted booties is just perfection. I like the new minimalistic approach with your jewelry and monochromatic scheme. Very pretty and well pulled off.
    much love.

  • choicesmultiple

    Amazing Prada shoes! The bag is really cool, i've never seen it!

  • Christina

    I am totally using the monochromatic trend to make my life easier. Love this business fashion-forward look.

  • Baby Budget Blog

    Love the necklace, love the shoes!!!

    Come enter my vintage Razza elephant necklace giveway!!

  • ShelleyW

    Sublime as always! The new necklace is beautiful…..and already SOLD! That is AWESOME!! I can't wait to get my earrings!! Your jewelry is heirloom quality and I'm looking forward to acquiring more as my pocketbook allows.


  • The Village Idiot

    this is very chic and i love this look for work! i really am loving black and white lately.

  • Laura

    Gorgeous!!! I too, love the minimalistic bent that fashion is taking.

  • Robin

    black and white always looks so chic, especially when you mix textures. I like how you still keep things looking fun even with more subdued color palette.

  • Death By Shoe

    This is such a great outfit – I would totally wear it to work 🙂 I absolutely love those Prada shoes….drooool!


  • Teri [a foodie stays fit]

    I LOVE this look. It's totally stylish but still professional. Unfortunately, if I wore that to my VERY conservative (dare I saw backward?) Southern bank that I work at, I'd get a lot of weird looks and perhaps a chastisement. Sigh.

  • Eugenia Woods

    I love these photo's! That shirt is great!

  • Michelle Lee

  • Caroline

    Very chic and sophisticated! And I definitely did notice that you are much less decked out in jewelry. I think it works for this outfit, but I always LOVE to see what jewelry pieces you have. The texture on those shoes is awesome.

  • RX-SZ

    Love the jacket!

  • alexandra grecco

    gorgeous, gal!


  • Mouthwash

    loving those Pradas!! I just bought a pair of insane boots and I'm stoked!


  • Karolina

    you look so great! everything is gorgeous 😉

  • 2Anchor

    This is the perfect for "corporate chic". Not everybody wants to wear the old boring pants suit! I adore the shoes and you're such a trooper for going without a jacket. I ran to the car the other night without one and thought I was going to freeze to death.


    Thanks for suffering for us! We really do appreciate! Did you mention what bag that is?? I don't think I caught that one…Juicy?

  • Impetuous Style

    I couldn't agree more on going "corporate chic." I just did a post about turning up my nose to biz cas. Blech, the cringe worthy words "business casual" send shivers down my spine.

  • LeeLee

    This is a fabulous outfit! From the shoes, to the jacket, and the purse! <3


    you are the epitome of chic….love it! xo

  • Catherine

    You've been awarded! Check out my blog:

  • CaliforniaCandy

    This should be the new boardroom chic! The pieces work great together!

  • Jessica

    Prada shoes are perfect!! Not too prissy but always beautiful.

  • Carolyn

  • Gloria@SweetieGems

  • classiq

    it's a chic businesslike style that works perfectly

  • Song Anh

    I really like your version of a business suit and always love the way you accessorize. Black is a favorite during this season but the fact that you're playing around with different textures through your shoes and the detailing on your jacket makes your outfit so interesting!

    A great option is the Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Mini!!
    It's got a similar satchel-like shape with the rocker attitude and is more affordable but still good quality.

    You can find it on eBay:;=250757752364&ssPageName;=STRK:MESELX:IT#ht_500wt_1139

    The leather is so soft!! Such a classic, iconic bag with an attitude!!
    Love it!!! (ipad)
