Fashion in Real Life


So simple, so comfortable looking, but so pulled together for the office - minus the tennis shoes.  This outfit out of the June/July issue of Harper's Bazaar  has an astronomical price tag but is so easy to recreate with more budget friendly pieces and a shoe that has the same sporty character but won't have the boss looking at you like you forgot something.

Turtleneck: J Crew
Pants: Reiss
Initial Necklace: Bauble Bar
Dagger Necklace: Pamela Love
Belt: Nicholas

Don't skip wearing the belt; for something monochromatic and layered like this, if you don't add the belt, it could come off as too boxy.  You won't be wearing the coat all day in the office, so you want to have some visual contrast to set off the blue.  Another good shoe choice would be spectators giving the outfit another shot of color blocking.  If you would like to buy the ring, you can use the link to contact me directly or use the Buy Now button to the left.
