Black, White, and Working

Black & white work look

I was absolutely, 100% convinced that I would hate this shirt when I ordered it. But… it was $15 on sale, I was desperate for more work shirts, and I needed to meet Loft’s draconian $125 free shipping minimum. So into the basket it went…

…and then I had to physically restrain myself from wearing it more than once a week.

It’s absolutely ridiculous how much I adore this shirt. It’s warm enough in winter, cool enough in summer, dresses up, dresses down, and neutral enough to allow me to wear my favorite banana yellow heels. Yellow pointy toed heels

This is my favorite way to wear it. Black skinny pants (do I wear black skinny jeans to work and pretend like they’re legit work apparel? I sure do), spiky necklace of unknown origin, bright heels (occasionally red or turquoise, too), and my ubiquitous Kate Spade tote.

3 Girls with Pearls

Hi All! It is time for another exciting installment of “3 Girls, 1 Item”.

This time around, we thought it would be fun to style pearls.  Pearls have a bit of a bad rap; Stepford Wives, Debutant Balls and the like.  We are here to prove that pearls are in fact a universally timeless piece that can go with just about everything. To do that, the ladies of Fashion By Committee chose to show off the myriad ways you can wear a layered strand pearl necklace from Target (yes, THE Holy Land, Target).

Try using pearls to take a casual look to the next level, as seen here on Jess:

How awesome are those olive pants? So perfect for Fall!

 

You can use the pearls to unite two monochromatic mixed patterns, as styled by Jeanne:

Gotta love that pop of red!

 

Finally, you can take a dash of Holly Golightly charm and a hint of Punk Rock princess and go full glam, as only Emily can:

If this photo doesn’t make you want to run out and buy that clutch, you are made of stronger stuff than I.

 

So as you can see, pearls are¬†truly a girl’s best friend!
