Most of the time in my line of work, I’m not really “client ready.”  My uniform is pretty much ripped jeans, Manolos, and a leather jacket.  So recently, I decided to get a look that I felt was appropriate for big meetings, but still had some of my personality.
 
On a recent trip to Greenwich, CT, Rachel and I stopped into the Rag & Bone and they were having an amazing sale! I picked up these pants, and my new favorite blouse in a window-pane check pattern and luxe silk fabric.
 
It can sometimes pull when put under a heavy jacket (so I have to be careful), but I think it’s both cute and very client appropriate – especially when under a blazer.  The best part? I’ve worn both pieces in more casual ways…the top with my go-to ripped jeans and heels, and the pants with a tight black top and leather jacket.  I think it’s always a great idea to have versatile pieces that can be mixed and matched for many occasions.  These new Rag & Bone items are certainly that for me, plus the sale made them a no-brainer!

Lust List

Birthday

1. Maje.  Again, I know it’s a million degrees outside, but I keep looking forward to wearing sweaters in the fall.  I love the bight red of this Maje sweater that would mentally transport me back to the streets of Paris.

 

2. Drybar.  I’m all about that mermaid hair, and I never turn down an opportunity to get a good blowout.  I mean, have you seen how long my hair is? Any opportunity to sip champagne, be pampered and feel beautiful is a great gift in my book.

 

3. Chanel.  I love this Chanel card case with it’s tastefully-sized gold logo and textured leather. It’s just classic, and the perfect size for a clutch.

 

4. Soul Cycle.  I’m back in the Soul habit! SoulCycle is my moment for me during the week.  I just get lost in the music and feel great about doing such a fun workout.  The classes are a bit pricey if you go often, so I think it’s also a great gift for those who like to stay active.

 

5. Name Necklace.  I’m having a Sex and The City moment and really want a name necklace all of a sudden. I just think it would be cute with sweaters or layered with other dainty jewelry.

 

6. Cyclical Industry,  Speaking of dainty jewelry…these micro-circle earrings are just the cutest and would go with any ensemble.  I love that they’re sparkly, but still understated.

 

7. Manolo Blahnik.  My Manolos are probably the shoes I wear most.  My classic black pair is a staple for work because they are sexy, yet so comfortable  I feel like I would get just as much wear out of a navy pair, which I’ve been lusting over for some time now.

 

8. Chloé.  My go-to fragrance that I just finished. It’s a fresh, floral scent that always makes me feel feminine and chic.

 

9. Bose.  Last but not least, Bose wireless headphones. My friend Daniela got a pair of Bose headphones when she worked on some of the ads last year.  Almost instantly I found myself making up any excuse to borrow her pair and enjoy the superb sound quality. Now that the wireless, noise cancelling model is out – I think it’s finally time to get my own pair.

What to wear to work in the mornings can sometimes be a last minute decision. I try to avoid the “What am I going to wear?” conundrum (more on that later), but it’s bound to happen. In those moments, I find myself reaching for a couple go-to outfits that are comfortable, but look polished. One of these quasi-work uniforms is a combination of navy, black, and touches of gold. The black Rag & Bone pants are stretchy, comfortable, but glamorous with the gold-tone zips down both legs. Also Rag & Bone, is my favorite t-shirt that is a marled jersey, both navy and black when you look closely.

 

I love throwing on a scarf for work, because it’s easy to throw over your shoulders when office temperatures fluctuate. The metallic gold threads in my Louis Vuitton shawl scarf make it one of my favorite items I own. And of course, I accessorize my look with additional gold accents – an oversized Target watch, classic aviators, and micro-earrings with a J monogram for my love.

 

And yes…I totally wrote this post with Rihanna’s voice stuck in my head.
