Dress | Blazer | Necklace | Pumps | Watch
This lovely blue dress from Reiss reminded me of the Stella McCartney’s dress seen on Kate Middleton last year. I love the lace panel detailing to give just a hint of embellishment as well as the lengthy short sleeves to flatter your look.
A black cropped blazer is just the right topper for the dress, and a pair of simple black pumps ties the whole look together. For the finishing touches, I’ve found a similar necklace to Kate’s (stunning Cartier necklace) for far much less at Kohl’s along with an office-chic watch that only looks expensive. I also recommend cinching the dress with a black belt and drape on your favorite scarf for another fun look.
Tights are one of the best transitional wardrobe items a woman can have. As spring temperatures rise and as summer nears, I’m reaching for sheer tights instead of thicker opaque tights. Although bare legs are acceptable at most work places, sheer tights can enhance your work style while providing a touch of warmth. Here I am wearing my new Hanes Lace Thigh High Tights in a nude shade.
