Wardrobe Wed: Blazin’

Can you feel it? Spring is just around the corner!

Today I am keeping it light with soft creams and a relaxed blazer. Broad shoulders can make it difficult to wear jackets of all kinds and not feel robotic with limited movement. This light-weight H&M find is comfortable and easy to wear all day long.

It’s a 13 hour day for Joy, filled with student appointments, and lots of hustle and bustle in between.  The day will not end at 5 as she is hosting an evening reception following work. Lots of running around, checking in attendees, and colorful chats with students and guests throughout the night.

What’s a girl to wear? Vince Camuto to the rescue!  Joy paired her favorite Vince Camuto slacks with an orange shell and black blazer.  A fun gold necklace added a little shine to the bold color.

Fantastic food. 70 degrees and sunny. Not a bad way to spend the work week!


Wardrobe Wed: Cream, Black, Burgundy

This entire week I have been in my office prepping for my inaugural business trip to Florida (hello, 70 degree weather!) and I’ve been able to sneak by without wearing a suit jacket or blazer.

Today is another day behind the desk so I chose to continue my “laid back” corporate look. See more about cardigan conundrum here! An animal print blouse and grey pencil skirt give my outfit some pizazz while my cream cardigan keeps the look classic. I paired with black tights (not pictured) and new ankle booties.

Joy is running around like a crazy person hosting a week-long conference for a group of students.  Today Joy is presenting a workshop to the students, greeting alumni presenters, and managing mealtime logistics for 35 people.  Joy went with dark colors, just in case anything spills when handling the catering.

Running between buildings on a below freezing day calls for riding boots. A Lord & Taylor button up shirt is the go to shirt of choice for professional events.  A burgundy A-line Ann Taylor skirt that won’t wrinkle or loose shape throughout the day adds a splash of modest color.

Wardrobe Wed: Up North & Down Under

Joy and I are both on holiday but in two VERY different locations! I am spending a few days in the mountains of Stowe, VT with Gear for some much needed R&R.

Today my schedule consists of horseback riding and booze – not a bad way to spend the day! Knowing I would be outside for most of the day on a farm, I opted for rugged layers.

I sported black leggings with black winter boots, a grey t-shirt layered with a mint green cable knit sweater (American Eagle) and my Kelly green fleece jacket (North Face).

Joy is on holiday in Australia!  Since the weather is sunny and in the 80s she can break out the maxi dresses while sightseeing.  Today she is spending part of today escaping the high noon heat at Madame Tussauds, Sydney’s wax museum.  A navy and white pattern Vince Camuto maxi dress is perfect for lunch overlooking the Darling Harbour and playing tourist.
