Holy Cow – these change everything


It’s a product like this that makes me wish I worked back in an office.  The mega-geniuses at Betabrand have come out with dress yoga pants suitable for the office.  I’m still sitting here sulking over the fact that I did not come up with this brilliant idea – but seriously, will we EVER wear traditional pants in the office again?  I can’t imagine ever giving up this level of comfort.

Want to snag a pair?  They start shipping in mid-March but are now taking pre-orders.  The only downside I see is that they currently only come in 32″ inseam, which excludes tall girls like me :(   They currently only come in grey, but they’re taking votes on the next color.  The price is about the same as you would pay for a decent pair of work slacks – $79.20.

The Icing on the Cake


I clicked a link today for Glamour Magazine’s  Top 10 Wardrobe Essentials.  While I somewhat agree with the list (these are really the bare minimum basics) your wardrobe is headed for major snoozeville if this is all you’re wearing!!!

If you want to take your outfit from boring to fashionable – don’t forget your accessories!  We’d add the following to Glamour’s list: a printed scarf, a go-anywhere clutch, a pop of color, a statement necklace, and everyday studs.  Use these items to add some punch to jeans and a white tee or basic black!  Just check out the transformations below.

Style Crush: Olivia Pope


Not only have I recently become obsessed with the ABC show Scandal, but I’ve also been drooling over Olivia Pope’s wardrobe! This woman always looks so flawlessly put together. I’ve noticed that she tends to stick with neutrals (grays, taupe, lots of white and ivory) and the occasional washed out color (blush pink or baby blue, for example). Since she runs in political circles, her wardrobe choices need to be safe and conservative. Her outfit is always classic and easy on the eyes, and her jewelry is always feminine with just the right amount of sparkle – she never wears anything over the top.

While Kerry Washington’s character typically wears high end designers on the show, I pulled together some much more affordable options for achieving her office look. I’ll do a separate post on her casual style – this woman takes it to a whole different level!

What do you think? Would you wear any of these looks in the office?
