I may not be able to rock the hot mama number that Michelle Obama and Charlize Theron are wearing to my office, but I do love my snake skin shirt…often paired with my snake skin skinny belt from Club Monaco.
Is animal print work appropriate…ever…I think so?!?
Anna Mattiuzzo of Melanie Lyne/Laura Canada comments on this very question for CIWTTW! Check out the Comment section of this post (top right corner) for more fashion tips on how to wear print to work!
Who doesn’t like a woman in red. As for work, this is definitely a more casual Friday or office event type of situation where the dress code calls for dressy casual.
BTW: I do believe that the phrase “dressy casual” gets women into hot water at work as it has no clear definition and the concern is always that you are either under or over dressed. In my view I would much rather be over dressed than under.
Does anyone else struggle with a “dressy casual” dress code at their office?
Colour is great, but nothing beats a classic black and white look in a light comfortable fabric. This top was an absolute steal at the Mendocino for $25.00.
My only advice for shopping at Mendo during their big sale…don’t shy away from the big rack of clothes you might find a gem!
It does cut a little low, therefore I pair it with a black tank and a pencil skirt and blazer…
This outfit is great for beating the heat and still looking professional.
Light fabrics are great in the summer there is nothing worse than sweatin’ in your dress shirt when it’s 35 degrees and the humidity is making Toronto feel more like 45!
Now that Summer is fully upon us I was inspired by Mrs. Obama to embrace my inner peachy-ness! This fun ensemble is usually paired with a khaki blazer and neutral pumps…the white blazer pictured is usually more of a weekend look for me.
It may not be your typical lawyer power suit, however, with the family and even crim clients I find this look makes me more approachable. Doesn’t hurt that the whole look was under $100, with the 40% at Jacob when I bought it (by “it” include the top, belt and skirt; necklace and blazer purchased previously)
