Dressing It Up

Jacket: Michael Kors// Blouse: Jones New York: Skirt: Macys (last seen here)/ heels: Marshalls / photocred: K

Here’s a little business attire for you today (and something I wore to church a little while back). I’m packing for a conference at the moment and attempting to find things that are professional, comfortable, but not too dull for four days of negotiation and policy writing. I love the pop of color the jacket brings to this outfit, if only I could wear it all day inside. Any business casual style tips?

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! In case you missed it, here are a few favorites from the past week:

+These healthy and delicious crescent rolls (go pin them now and make them later)
+Last day to enter this giveaway (and let me know who you LOVED at the oscars last night0
+My new favorite sweater (its on sale!)
+This exciting event for Utah Valley bloggers (you won’t want to miss this!)
+Some festive President’s Day style (I want this skirt in every color)
+Why you shouldn’t read my blog (Thank you SO much for your kind responses)
+The worst date I’ve ever been on (hope this boy doesn’t read my blog…)

I’ve been wanting to introduce you to my favorite commenter/reader around these parts recently. Elle from Wishingoodluck is a fellow east coaster who is almost done with grad school.

Thoughts on the Oscars?


  1. ohh i love this outfit.
    you look so classy.
    and fun.
    also love your hair.

    also you are so nice, smart way to show your readers you love them.


    ps i miss you, can we hang out?

  2. You are so pretty! I love this outfit. Red is definitely your color! (In more ways than one, right? haha!)

    Seeing Elle as your reader of the week makes me smile SO wide because I actually knew her before blogs! I've known her since like 2008. LOVE her.

  3. Such a classic business casual look and I love the red coat + red heels combo! Totally pinning those crescent rolls now – yum!

  4. You are SOO cute, girly!! I've been a slacker and haven't commented as much as I should. But can I say something hilarious? I'm kind of dating this kid and his name is Ben. Coincidence? Probably not. I feel like Elisabeth & Ben couples are pretty much the bomb.

  5. Such a gorgeous outfit girl! One I add some pop to my professional outfits is by my necklaces. Today I had on simple blue long sleeve top, khaki pants, and brown heels. But I added a red necklace and it really pulled it all together!

    Enjoy your conference!

  6. Ahhh oh my goodness! I saw this as I was leaving work and actually squealed out lout and my coworkers had to come over to see what the fuss was about. You are so, so thoughtful. It means so much to me that my comments have touched you!

  7. This is a great work outfit!! Love the red jacket and shoes, they are so fun!

  8. I love that four photo! Those shoes are so fun especially with that gorgeous coat.

  9. Blog hopping from WIWW – the shoes are the perfect color and height for business attire – love them!

  10. red is one of my favorite accessories colors! i love your coat & heels!!
