    White Button Down – Celebrity Inspired

    There are certain items that are considered workwear staples – a basic blazer, trousers, black tote, and yes, a white button down shirt.  A crisp white shirt is such a versatile piece that is easy to wear for most professional working environments.  I’m swooned by the way Sophie Marceau rolled her  sleeves up and tied a knot at the waist.  A pair of cool oversized shades ups the city-chicness.

    Brooks Brothers is my favorite go-to shop for dress shirts especially their non-iron button shirts which I consider as professional wardrobe essentials.  You just can’t go wrong with a solid white or blue button down.

    How do you like Victoria Beckham’s black and white attire below?  This is how I wear my shirt as well ~ with the sleeves rolled up!  A watch is all you need as far as accessories go to keep the look minimal and sharp.  I also like that the shirt does not have pockets.

    I have gathered ten white button downs (plus size included) for you to get your work-chic on. Team with a suit for a board meeting or with skinny jeans for a casual office look.

    Nude Eye Shadow Palette

    neutral eyeshadow palette

    Like with other makeup, I only occasionally use eye shadow.  All of my eye shadow is now expired & barely used.  This is another reason why I don’t spend $$$ on eye shadow, well, haven’t yet.  So here is my new palette from Maybelline called The Nudes.  The neutral shades are versatile for everyday wear including work.  You can blend and mix just as easy to create anything from a subtle/soft daytime look to a more sultry finish for the evening.  It stays put all day long especially over primer.  If you are looking for nude shadows but don’t want to shell out $30+ then definitely try out this affordable palette.  I paid $9.99 at Ulta.

    Here are ways to group the colors together.

    Spring into Skinnies

    There is an ever increasing number of casual workplaces popping up everywhere.  Casual or dressy, you can enjoy business attire that is both fashion-forward and practical that falls in line with your job.  If your work setting allows you to don casual wear, then skinny jeans are an ideal wardrobe choice for casual-chic workwear. Every fashionista that embraces jeans needs a reliable pair of skinny denims that can easily take her from work to out on the town.

    I have stated before how much I adore denim jeans.  Skinny and bootcut jeans happen to be my favorite styles.  I enjoy wearing skinny jeans the most with high heels and sandals during spring & summer months.  Oftentimes, I team my skinnies with a simple tee, blazer and a pair of heels.  The right pair of skinny jeans works with almost everything in your closet.

    how to style skinny jeans

    This season have skinny jeans keep you in stylish step.  NYDJ’s selection of premium jeans really caught my attention – especially their skinnies.  Plus, you feel and look even slimmer in these jeans, thanks to their exclusive Lift Tuck technology that really flatters your shape.  With that in mind, I have rounded up the best skinny pairs from NYDJ.  Create stylish, comfortable outfits that work for you!

    • Ankle Jeans (Ami Supper Skinny in manhattan beach) ~ I find ankle length jeans – hitting just right above the ankle bone – the most chic.  It works equally well whether worn with heels or flats.  My personal shoe preference is low-heeled pumps in neutral hues such as taupe, gray or nude.
    • White Skinny Jeans (Sheri Skinny in optic white) ~ Don’t shy away from white denim jeans.  They are just as acceptable as wearing black jeans to the office when worn with the right mix of apparel and accessories.  When paired with a matching white blazer, you have a fresh suit look for springtime.
    • Colorful Jean Leggings (Alina Legging in rouge) ~ Let this vibrant pair of skinnies brighten up your workwear for the coming season.
    • Dark Jeans (Serena Legging in black) ~ Black, navy, blue or gray in dark wash is a must-have for working women.

    NYDJ suggests going one size smaller due to their smart slimming technology.  There are much more than jeans to be found on the site as well.  Take time to browse through their workchic-worthy dresses, tops, skirt and pants to incorporate into your existing wardrobe.
