Professional Pink

In a classic business setting most people stick to neutral colors. Normally a dark plain blazer and matching pants. Likewise, the undershirt is a grey, white, or light blue blouse. The neutral colors indicate a form of salaried workers. The bottoms, pants or skirts, are to be crisp and straight down.
Recently, I saw a few lighter colored blazers in an accessory shop. Due to my affinity for the color pink I found it adorable. My only struggle was how to make this blazer business casual.
My veterinary courses require a blue-color dress code on Fridays. So, I decided to test out my outfit for the day. I paired my double buttoned pink blaze,r from Versona, with a simple flair skirt, I got from H&M. I also have a lace pink top from Anthropologie.
I then accessorizes my outfit with pieces from Primark. I attached a velvet bow to the lace trim of my top. I added a pink floral hair pins to push my hair back. For shoes I kept the professional trend and wore black round toe heels. However, for after class I added my pair of feathered light pink glitter pumps.
The outfit was a stretch out of my normally work wear or business professional attire, yet it made me stand out from all the other uniform looks. Work wear can still be chic and cute. The professional pink look was a go that I would repeat again.
Down below, I attached an outfit set and links. Listed below is wear you can find similar items to my professional pink outfit.

Monochrome Spring

As spring and summer trends start to fly in it becomes essential to rember to classic chic look. Every spring and summer clothing store is going to be piled with bright colors and floral prints. Which are all lovely and viable options.
However, there are other ways to sport a spring look without charging up a storm for pastels.A monochromatic color scheme can still achieve the same spring or summery feel.
A lace blouse with trimmings is a fresh represntation of the vitality of life. Everyone who is in the workforce probably has this iteam too. Another wardorbe stable is a pair of pants. If you have pants or a skirt in a solid color with scalloped lining its a cute way to descritely incorporate a floral outlook. Likewise a patteren coat can bring in a splash of summer youth without the bright colors.
Overall you can still have a nice and soothing summer and spring outfit from your basic wardrobe needs. Staples in grey, black, creme, white, nude, and beige can still be worn during these seasons. The monochromatic colors are to be utilized every season and can provide chic looks.

Clothing Resloutions

This past year I’ve gotten more comftorable with utilizing clothes as a form of expression and art. Here are a list of notes I’ve uncovered and hope to share for this upcoming year. Its important that when we make resolutions to resolve to hold our selves at a great standard of confidence. The best way to do so it threw clothes.

  1. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns (stripes, stars, animal prints, glitter)
  2. Its okay for your bra or bralette to show
  3. Boots are acceptable to wear in the summer (they are great with dresses)
  4. Just cause its a trend doesn’t mean you have to like it
  5. You can have more than one accessory (it won’t clash!)
  6. Its okay to mix fabrics (lace, leather, velvet, suede)
  7. Its okay to sport old trends (I love boho dresses even though it was late 1990’s trend)
  8. White apperal is okay after labor day
  9. Fishnets can be worn durring the day
  10. Classic looks are a wardorbe stable

School Supplies

I’ve also grown to like custom planners and have switched from Lily Pulitzer planners to professional journals. This switch was much needed as I take on doctoral school. Professors often frown upon brightly printed patterns so the burgundy and dusted pink journal was more accepted. Journals have been a better fit than planners because I can also take notes instead of writing on the margins of my dated boxes. I have found a few journals on Novica.

Along with my fall obsessions I have grown to adore River Islands fall line. There blouses are essential for professional days on Thursday for guest lectures in my veterinary courses. Similarly Selfridge’s has wonderful accessories that I’ve grown to adore. There leather gloves are wonderful for crisp mornings. Likewise Kendra Scott’s new line has modern simplistic jewelry that adds clean look.

Professional Fall Trend 2017

Professional Fall Trend
With the passing of New York Fashion Week and the hype of street trends, the true fall trends have come into play. Unlike the flashy bold color petticoats supported on the runway, the global consensus has shifted to the smart and sensible sweater dresses, trench coats, and plaid blazers. This style is simple, comfortable, and most importantly work place chic.
          For those that are in professional classes or the business field a certain dress code is expected. This unspoken code is often hard to make stylish and remain professional. However, this trend enables infinite outfit possibilities that are work appropriate. The blazer offers a warm yet sophisticated appearance. A sweater or sweater dress offer a 60’s glam look that brings a wave of nostalgic sensibility.  While, the trench coats symbolize the boom of women in the work place during 1914.  When paired with minimalist loafers the outfit falls under completion. Notably, the softer colors of light pink, tan, grey, and rose gold offer a sense of neutrality. Soft neutral colors are vital for a professional fall trend because they provide a wave of calmness, femininity, and power. All are vital for taking charge of one’s busy fall schedule.
While high brand stores may be selling top dollar for these trends, below are a few sites that have this look at a cheaper price.
