What to Wear to Work: Red Jacket, Red Pumps and Black and White Skirt









Jacket: Orsay, similar here | Cami: Ann Taylor
Skirt:Prabal Gurung for Target, similar here
Shoes: L.K. Bennett, similar here | Tote: Longchamp
Bracelet: Craft market find, similar on Etsy here

One of the great things about living in Shoreditch is that I can always find a cool background for my blog pictures! This giant leaf design is just one small part of a long mural around the corner from my apartment. I love how the different shades of green really made the red in my outfit pop! Sometimes it can be risky to wear red clothing with red shoes, because the reds can clash. But in this case, I thought the difference in texture between the red patent and the red fabric set each piece apart. Plus, the print of the skirt catches the eye and keeps the two reds separate. For jewelry, I settled on pearls, but in a fun, artistic way to complement the less formal print and style of the skirt. For a bag, I've gone with my beloved and trusty Longchamp tote - there is absolutely no better bag to carry things to work. The nylon lasts a really long time, you can stuff a HUGE amount into it, and the brown flaps with the black bag means you can carry it with either color. It's been one of my go-to bags for a long time, and has taken me through college, law school and into the real world!
