From Easter Brunch to the Boardroom

Can I see a show of hands of who has bought an overpriced outfit for a holiday occasion, wore it once, and now it sits in the back of your closet?  Believe me I have been there and done that, but now it’s time to shop smart this season!  For this weeks post I wanted to dedicate it to my hand raisers out there on how to take that holiday look and transition it to the workplace.

Let’s “hop” right into it…see what I did there, you know since it was Easter yesterday?  Thank you for your pity chuckle, now lets get down to the look I chose!  For starters when shopping for that holiday look always good to find material that is light weight and has colors/tones that you can mix & match with.  I chose a a white, blue, a bit of turqouise tunic from Old Navy on sale for $15.  Not only is the price on point, but this is a great piece to build a whole other look around.  Also, to glitz it up a bit I added blue & crystal earrings also from Old Navy for under $10!  FYI Old Navy has been bringing it with their affordable jewelry selection, you must check it out!

So after the eggs are found, church has been attended, and you have recovered from your food coma, what is next for this fabulous dress?  You guessed it…or maybe you didn’t, in any case put a blazer on it!  This takes your look to a whole new level from holiday party to workplace appropriate.  Dressing the look down a bit with a pair of nude flats brings the look full circle. Found this blazer from Target for $35 and also paired with basic nude & crystal earrings from Old Navy for $12!
