I wore my first outfit to work yesterday, and it was a great success! I still had to wear my UGGS for the commute and change shoes; I guess I was wrong with my "spring is just around the corner" statement...
These were the inspiration pictures I used:
And here's how I interpreted the look:
The navy H&M pants were a little short, but super comfortable, and they'll be great with sandals in the summer. The nude pumps are mine (Calvin Klein), as is the skinny gold belt (J.Crew). I loved the tie on the blouse, and the animal print cardigan (to play off the model's animal print bag) fit like a glove. It was also an awesome buy for $25- I know I'll wear this sweater to death (both the shirt and cardigan are also from H&M).
Last but not least, the F21 cocktail ring and bangles, mixed with my David Yurman bracelets, added the finishing touches to my outfit. Their clanking and jingling let everyone within a 50 yd radius know I was a-coming :)
