Ladies Who Lunch...At Their Desks



I know the term "ladies who lunch" is sometimes used derogatorily, but I've always thought it sounded quite elegant. It brings to mind pictures of women in beautiful clothes delicately nibbling on cucumber sandwiches and lobster salad. Unfortunately, my daily lunch is much less elegant - microwaved food made over the weekend and frozen, eaten while catching up on the news at my desk. But, while I may not be able to eat like a "lady who lunches," I can certainly dress like one :-) My outfit today is based off of what I imagine those ladies would wear - a classic pencil skirt combined with a bright sweater, accessorized with a long strand of pearls, my class ring and matching pearl earrings. At least I can dress like I live a life of leisure!!

Skirt: Ann Taylor from several years ago, similar here for US and here for UK
Sweater: Gap from several years ago, similar here for US and here or here for UK
Pearls: similar for US here and UK here
Class Ring: wear your own, or similar here for US and here for UK
Belt: similar here for US and here for UK
Purse: Longchamp Le Pliage medium tote, US and UK

  1. I just found your blog through Corporette and it's great. I wonder if you would reconsider the red font? It's very hard to read!

    1. Hi Kate!
      Thanks so much for reading and thanks for letting me know about the font! I'm still playing around with layout and colors as I get up and running, so I will definitely take your tip into consideration!
      All the best,
      Ruthanna
