Happy Wednesday from London, friends! We arrived yesterday, and explored several hours before losing the battle to jet lag. It’s been years since we visited this city, and it’s even more charming and vibrant than I remember. We’re embarking our ship, the Royal Princess, today for a cruise of the British Isles! We’ll be making stops along the UK, Ireland, Scotland, and finishing up in Paris! I’d love your tips and suggestions for any of these places.
Today on the blog, I’m excited to share some Work to Weekend inspiration for you, featuring a few of my closet staple pieces.
This stretchy pencil skirt is my go-to for a professional look, it’s both comfortable and insanely flattering. It molds to my curves, but is thick enough to conceal any lumps and bumps. I like to wear it higher on my waist with a tucked-in top for a leg-lengthening effect. (Seen here, too.)
This floral blouse is gorgeous, and so versatile. I’m wearing it alone now, and will layer it under jackets and cardigans later. The floral is so fresh, but the black makes it perfect for year-round wear. And bonus, it’s on sale!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a 0P skirt and XS blouse.
I’ve had these pumps for years, and just adore their classic shape and comfortable fit. The heel is just right for a flattering fit, but totally manageable for being on your feet all day.
This blouse is too pretty to reserve for just the office, so I paired it with jeans and booties for a fun night out style. I love the contrast of the feminine top paired with distressed jeans…and of course a pop of leopard is always a good idea!
I already know these will be my most-worn distressed jeans of the season…the fit is so good (plus, they’re on sale!)! I love the lighter wash and small touches of distressing, plus the length is perfect for booties and heels. (These peep-toe booties are the perfect transitional shoe, and easily dressed up or down.)
Fit Tip: They are true to size, I’m wearing a 26.
The ring set is one of my favorite finds lately…it’s a whole set of rings for a great price, and I love stacking and pairing them in different combinations on multiple fingers.
Okay, it’s back to the British Isles for me…first stop, the Channel Islands! We port in Guernsey, and then ferry to the tiny island of Sark which has no cars! I’ll share everything on the blog, but you can catch it in real-time on my Instagram Stories.
