Skirt - J.Crew sold out in yellow
Watch - Nixon
Bag - Fendi 2Jour
Most of these pieces I'm wearing in today's post you've probably seen elsewhere on Corporate Catwalk. A few weeks ago I wore this top here and last October I wore the pencil skirt with a peplum blazer. These Zara heels I continue to get tons of wear on a weekly basis, along with my Fendi bag (best work purchase, yet!).
By now, we've all noticed that the guys at the office have mastered the gingham button down. Not wanting to copy their style 100%, I thought this top was a good alternative. This fun and flirty top is a great way to incorporate a printed blouse into your work wardrobe while still feeling professional. I love the sleeves on this top, I typically wear it with white denim pants or shorts. Yesterday I picked up a similar style top from Zara. This top can also be worn at the office (with an undershirt) or no undershirt for a night out with your girlfriends.
You've probably noticed, I'm a huge fan of the J.Crew pencil skirt. My only complaint about pencil skirts, is that by the time I walk to work, my skirt has rotated half way around my waist. Does anyone have any good tricks or tips to keep your skirt from moving throughout the day?
One last thing, this Fendi bag was a huge investment piece when I originally purchased it in July 2013, but I can say with confidence that I've worn it over 500 times in the last two years. That seem excessive, but I use it everyday to work. It's similar to a man's briefcase. It fits my laptop, charger, mouse, wallet, makeup, extra shoes and several other tidbits to the office and when I travel for work. If you're seriously thinking about investing in a designer bag this season, take a look at the Fendi 2Jour. Since the bag is a few years old, check out consignment shops like TheRealReal and Poshmark. Both have an authenticity process making it safe and secure to buy designer bags online.
Have a great start to the week!
