{OUTFIT POST} WORKING GIRL...


I have been such a bad blogger lately, have I not? Work has taken priority for me these days, which feels both good and kind of sad. I miss you guys, I miss posting regularly, all that stuff. However, I am excited to announce, I suppose officially (at least on the blog), that I'm loving my new job as the Fashion Editor at Lifestyle Mirror. You may have seen me tweeting some of my stories from there lately, so if you ever get lonely for some of my not-as-personal style, just head over there!



And so, working! Now that I'm fully employed again I am trying to re-embrace the challenge of getting up and getting dressed for a long working day. As expected, I still turn to my old stand-bys like my Madewell denim shirt and this (practically vintage) Anthropologie skirt. But, a quick extra buttoning all the way to the top and a statement necklace (from Sorrelli) adds a little office-appropriate polish.


And, I have to say — the good people at Sole Society were kind enough to send over their roomy bowler bag from their new line of handbags — and I can't get enough. The blue color is unexpectedly wearable and the contrast of suede and leather makes it feel a little bit more special than your average work tote. 

Et voila, the working girl is back.

All the details: Madewell ex-boyfriend shirt / Anthropologie skirt (old) / Sorrelli necklace (c/o) / Joie skimmers (c/o but love these ones) / Oakley Frogskins (thanks Harry) / Sole Society bag (c/o).

  7. Shut up -- I love that shirt on you! So much so that even though I already own five chambray shirts, I made a trip to Madewell today just to buy YOUR shirt and discovered it's now on sale -- plus an additional 40% off. BONUS!! So thanks for posting and for looking so adorable in it. (Where should I send your commission?)
