workwear with a little bit of flare.
sometimes it's hard to incorporate trendy fashion into workwear. but when it's subtle and it works... i go for it! this one is a pretty good example of a regular shift dress with a short bell sleeve flare to it #nopunintended. ha. while bell sleeves have been "in" for the past year, the long bell sleeve isn't really that practical for work, i can only imagine typing with them, that would drive me nuts. anyways, this was a good option! yes, sorry it is sold out but i've linked some similar options below. #bloggerproblems
these block heels are definitely one of my favorite ones i own. while they are a tad high for my taste but the strap across the toes is pretty soft -- i have debated other colors. not sure if i've mentioned this -- but i feel like Ann Taylor makes some pretty comfortable quality shoes for the price? they do. debating these pretty lace up ones in blush!
side ramblings: last week, the @kendrascott fall 2017 collection released that is inspired by Kendra's travels to Italy -- the lookbook for this collection is stunning and yet again i make mental notes about how old i'm getting and how i need to get out there one day! i digress. see all the pieces here. i cannot wait to style the lucielle y necklace & the blithe cocktail ring! other stand out pieces from the collection: the iris statement bracelet & the daria statement earrings. my blogger babe, Ela @theelaedition makes a comeback to the blogging world! she opens up about what bloggers struggle with, including some thoughts that have crossed my mind. Kimberly, @littlebittyinthecity talks about rejection which i can absolutely relate to, we all can. lastly, i saw Girl's Trip this past weekend... HILARIOUS!! i couldn't stop laughing!! #muchneeded.
