Hi There my Lovelies! Hope you are having a wonderful day. Happy Friday everyone. Today I want go over a very simple style of the day for work for those days when you have to those big meetings. It’s winter now and in fact we just had our first snow of the year today. Specially, during these time of the year I really hate wearing suit for those very important work meetings. Hence, I try to keep it simple and chic with sweater jackets.

Draped Fringed Tweed Jacket (On Sale for $24.99)

Jacket: I got my sweater jacket last from New York and Company and absolutely love it. It is like with faux leather creating a more chic edgy look to the outfit. I got a lot of complements for this sweater. I have also went to interviews and big presentation in Chicago, the Windy city (in November) wearing this sweater. If you don’t like wearing suits all the time but want to the chic look, get your favorite sweater jacket and face your meeting or any presentation with chic confidence. I have added some of my favorite examples to help you get started.

Turtleneck: As you know I always love layering, specially during the winter. Whether you layer to achieve a certain look or to just stay warm, it never hurts to have fresh combinations on hand. When I layer, my goal is to achieve both. Depending on the weather , I like my sweater jacket with either a turtleneck or or my favorite mock neck short sleeve blouse.  Whether, it’s turtleneck or just mock neck, I love how it add sophistication to any style.

Pant: You always have to complete your look with the perfect pair of pants. I have gotten my pants from everywhere and Ann Taylor and Loft has by far the perfect pairs. I remember sister first introduced me to Loft pants a decade ago when she worked there a summer during my undergraduate years. I absolutely fell in love with how it fit me. Back then I was very skinny but a curve and both Loft and Ann Taylor knew how to fit my size. I absolutely love the Kate all-season stretch trouser from Ann Taylor, because of its curvy fit.

What are you waiting for? If you are me and get tired of the same of suit, try these sweater jackets a try and let me know what you think. What are some of your favorite style for dressing up for the all important meetings and presentations?

Hi There! Now that we figured out how to style in budget, I asked myself why can’t we do the same for our work wardrobe? I asked was reading an article in Who What Wear showing some of the chic Fall 2015 work lookbook. I for one, thought they were little too expensive for me. Therefore, I went online and went to the same places, yes I am talking about H&M and Forever 21, and started looking for inspiration. I will now share with my findings. I hope you will find my findings helpful. My findings were inspired by the Who What Wear article.
