Giving Classics an Edge






Hi everyone! Going back to work after the holiday season is always rather miserable, especially when it comes to clothing. I love my holiday wardrobe: comfy knit dresses with cozy holiday sweaters for lounging, and gorgeous party gowns with sparkly heels for the festivities. Having to get back into suits and hose just isn't very exciting. So, in order to get myself out of the fashion dumps, today I added a little edge to my standard J. Crew dress and blazer combo. I paired it with some heeled knee-high leather boots and a statement necklace that always give me a little rocker-chic feel. The necklace and boots are definitely edgy for a traditional law firm, but the classic LBD and blazer combo tones them down a bit. If you have a less rigid dress code, switch out the classic blazer for a more modern looking jacket - maybe even in leather :-)

Dress: J. Crew Emmaleigh dress in black -- for US readers see here, for UK readers see similar here
