Work Wardrobe Essentials


Good morning!  I have gotten a lot of emails lately asking about some of my favorite every day work wardrobe essentials, so for today's post, I have rounded up a few of my tried and true favorites.  As you can see, these items are timeless, high-quality investment pieces, many of which can be dressed up or down and be taken from office to (evening) out.

To begin, every woman needs a classic white button-down.  I have tried my fair share of button-downs, but this Banana Republic fitted, non-iron button-down is hands-down my favorite.  I love the tailored fit, and did I mention, you don't have to iron it??  It comes out of the dryer sans wrinkles and ready to wear.  I have been very impressed with Banana Republic's wear-to-work collection this season, and have quite a few pieces in my closet. These pieces are amazing quality and go on sale pretty regularly.  Exhibit A: my favorite basic black pencil skirt to wear with suits and/or blouses is on major sale right now.  I love this skirt and wear it all the time.  I also have it in navy.  As far as blazers are concerned, I love this blazer because of its tailored fit.  There is nothing worse than a boxy blazer!

If you have followed my blog, you know that I am a major Ivanka Trump fan.  She is such an inspiration to us working gals, not to mention, an incredible designer that understands women.  I love the Janie pump as my every day heel and have it in six colors.  I usually alternate between black and nude for the office and court. These shoes are so comfortable and will not break the bank.  In fact, they are on sale now.  I cannot recommend them enough!

Finally, I love this Tory Burch York Tote in blush as my every day go-to work tote bag.  A truly versatile bag, a tote can serve as your computer and carry-all bag during the week.  I love how this tote is divided into three compartments so that I can stay organized and am less likely to lose my belongings.  Plus, I love how the pretty blush pink goes with everything.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  What are some of your staple pieces that you swear by??

  2. Awesome selection! I would add also some tailored trousers to my essentials, because it can get quite cold and I like a power suit on a woman.
