Oct 16th,Working Mom


Some of you may know that I work part time- and on days when I am meeting with clients I like to dress more professional.

To me, this is the hardest outfit to put together- and I’ll admit, I stood in my closet this morning and tried on lots of different looks.

At first I chose plain black pants and a white button down shirt- but personally, I think that looks a bit like a waiter’s uniform.

I then opted for a black shirt with a cream Chanel inspired blazer over it- this jacket is a classic piece- and in my opinion- a must have piece for every gal’s wardrobe!  It works great professionally, but is also cute paired with jeans- as seen here.

To add a little spunk, I chose my leopard flats. It’s a fun mix of patterns- and since I’ll be on my feet all day, flats are perfect.

It’s a pretty typical outfit for me.  I like sticking to neutral colors and classic looks- it makes me feel comfortable and that’s important!

I bought this blazer years ago- and it has been one of my all time favorite pieces! So classic!

In celebration of today I have decided to dress in my alter ego- rocker chic! I bought this tweedy, Chanel inspired jacket thinking it was a very serious jacket and would be perfect for work. In the picture on the right you can see how I had it zipped up and paired with baggy black trousers. I didn’t look like a serious employee- I looked old fashioned!

On the left I have updated my look. By unzipping the jacket and pairing it with these sexy skinny pants and boots- then adding a oversize, flowy tank layered with lots of silver chains- I have made my outfit more current and stylish. Rock on!

From dowdy gal to rocker mom!
