DD's Style File - Working Girl

Summer is definitely all about color, but winter gets waaay to gloomy and depressing for me, so I'm aiming to carry my enthusiasm for color right on through the year. (Don't shoot me for talking about that time of year, we all know it's lurking...) The problem I seem to have is finding the right tights to go with some of my more vibrant pieces so that my look is still cohesive. Which is another top reason to love spring and summer - just slather some Johnson's Baby Oil Gel on your bare legs (and perhaps some faux tanner for my porcelain divas) and you're ready to go. No muss, no fuss.

Personally, I tend to find that on those days, when I just can't seem to figure out what to put on, regardless of the time of year, or nothing is coming together in real life quite as it did in my mind, it takes the fun out of fashion and makes it feel like work.

Which is why I'm still trying to get better at picking out my clothes at night before bed, but sometimes I'm just too exhausted to even go there, but I'm still working on it. *sigh* If only I was one of those early risers who could get up and work out in the mornings, I know that yoga would get me centered and ready to take on the day, but that evil featherbed of mine is big on holding hostages...

But I digress.

When all else fails, stick with a classic, they always work. LBD's for evenings and collared shirts with pencil skirts for the 9 to 5. Problem solved. So today I went for the classic office look, pairing a bright pencil silhouette with a white button down, red skinny belt and my loving favorite, leopard Guess pumps.
White button-up shirt - Converse for Target
Pink pencil skirt - Express
Red skinny belt - The Limited
Gold earrings - The Limited
I mentioned in another post that I bought three of these skirts from Express, this is the second one. It's a nice saturated strawberry shade, that's just enough color for an office full of grays and blacks.
Pink & silver aviators - Charlotte Russe
Multi color bead necklace - NY & Co.

Square orange bangle - The Limited
Leopard pumps - Guess

 Have a happy Monday!

  1. You look fab!! I literally wore the same outfit yesterday. I have the same express skirt and paired it with a white blouse with leopard pumps for work. We're twinsies! :)

    And I have to agree with you, spring and summer is my fave time because of all the colors and when "that" time of the year comes along, everything kinda gets gloomy, including clothing. Like you, I would like to carry those bright vibrant colors right through the gloomy weather! xo
