    Minimal-Chic Watches

    If you are looking for a sleek minimal watch, look no further.  A metallic watch in a simple style is a modern-classic.  Below are WorkChic’s favorite picks that are perfectly versatile for business wear. The minimal styling can be easily dressed up or down.  I find it to be most chic when the watch is worn alone ~ it’s better to go solo than place in bad company so to speak.

    Little Extras

    glam phone case

    Well, I want to share a few of my current favorite things.  Shiny and glitzy ~ you know it’s that time of the year!  Nothing expensive of course, but it’s all these little details that finish off the style, and puts a smile on my face.

    • Equal parts dazzling and pretty, I couldn’t resist this Glam Case for my new iPhone 6 Plus.  An affordable case with lots of shimmer, just what I was looking for.  The champagne hue complements the gold tone perfectly.  Browse through their entire collection for your new case or as a holiday gift.
    • I love vintage-y costume jewelry.  I like to visit flea markets for unique finds or simply browse online for deals.  Right now, this Crystal Feather Bib necklace offers a major statement in sweet antique style for not much bank.  Drape it over a crisp button shirt.  And I wore this Cut-Out Spade Necklace in my previous personal outfit post.
    • Go for va-va-voom lips with a L’Oreal Extraordinaire Color Riche Liquid Lipsticks (shown in Rouge Allegro).  Amazing!
    • Victoria’s Secret Secret Charm, what I can describe as a really pretty yet light floral with a hint of fruit.  It must be the honeysuckle that makes this scent pleasing to my nose.  I layer it over body butter in the same fragrance.
    • I simply slip on my coral and gold cocktail ring any time I want to add a bit of warmth to my outfit. Here is another ring I love in a more rustic style.
    • Those faux pearl earrings are from Michael’s.  Yes, and they were on sale for $2.50!

    Minty Gold

    This smaller Baker watch (28mm case) is just perfect for everyday wear without being right in your face.  The best part to me are the colors, ‘mint + gold’ as the combination is refreshing yet warm.  An easy way to complement your professional attire.  See more color and style options here.

    Acrylic Desktop Accessories

    As a full-time blogger/writer, it’s important for me to have an inspiring workspace.  An inspiring working environment to me is simply an uncluttered, neat & quiet place to sit along with a few essentials at my disposal.  And yes, an outdoor view is a must.  The right surroundings encourages work efficiency as well as creativity.

    Some of the must-haves by my laptop are a cup of jasmine green tea, aromatic things like candles and rosemary, iPhone, notebooks and a stack of magazines.  I also added these two accessories to brighten up my black desk – Monogrammed Acrylic Pencil Cup & Kate Spade Acrylic Stapler.  Clear acrylic & gold screamed to be paired together!

    Both of the items are from Design Darling, the online boutique & life style blog ran by Mackenzie Horan.  Check her NYC apartment to see more of her dazzling decor style.

    I used the pencil cup as a floral vase instead.  You can use this versatile acrylic container however you wish!  The stapler is proudly displaying on top of my mags unlike the ugly stapler that I hid inside the drawer prior.

    A little change can enhance your working mood whether a fresh candle, flowers or small desk accessories.  When things are pleasing to the eye, they sure are good for the mind!  Take a look at this collection of ever-inspiring workspaces from chic home offices to outdoor studios.

    Disclosure: Design Darling provided me with the accessories in exchange for writing a review.  All opinions expressed in this post are purely my own.

    Style Idea ~ Belted Scarf

    For the majority of us, scarves are a year-round wardrobe essential.  I personally can’t go without one (even in summer) for some extra warmth & style.  Fashion house icon Burberry showcased an easy way to boost one’s overall look by simply belting a scarf.

    Drape a long scarf around your neck and let each end hang in the front.  Then cinch it up with a belt.  A silky, printed scarf in corresponding color(s) to the rest of outfit will effortlessly tie the whole look together.

    As an example, this bright lemon scarf will pop beautifully against the midi black dress below.  And the belt will make the outfit more put together as office wear.  Check out Ann Taylor for a fabulous collection of scarves at reasonable price points!
