From Brussels with Love: Day at the Office

Hi guys,
Can you imagine that we’ve already arrived at the middle of the week? I know most of you work at the office and indeed, sometimes it gets lonely having to stay at home and not having a closet packed with office clothes, but I still wanted to show off a really cute office look that I personally would wear to work !
Since my Manfield shoes have a 70s vibe to them, I thought I should add a more feminine touch in the upper part of my outfit, just to sweeten the deal. Now these shoes can be worn in many ways and you can definitely play on the masculine style and wear them with a pair of pants, in a suit..you know, go full rogue in that direction. But here, I wanted to build a softer look. The shiny leather is quite an unique touch to the shoes and the thick heel makes them a comfortable pair of shoes that you can actually walk in and stay all day at the office. Add a pencil skirt, a pair of tights and an envelope clutch and you’re good to go for this Fall !

I’ve been crushing hard on emerald this season which serves as a refreshing color option particularly during the holiday party circuit.  This look is as perfect for Christmas Day as it is for the workweek, and unlike my ugly Christmas sweater dress from last weekend, it will be an outfit that works as well during the holiday season as it does deep into the winter months.  (Just kidding.  I’m totes wearing my Christmas llama all. year. long.)  I was particularly drawn to this pencil skirt and beautiful coat, but my trusty friends at Banana Republic also made a coordinating suit jacket and pant too.  And if that’s not enough, they also carried this delish emerald hue through to several other amazing pieces as well.

Much of my workweek involves racing from one meeting to the next all over the city, which means I’m often walking into conference rooms with my winter coat still on or slung over my arm.  I’ve thus become a particular fan of the coordinating skirt-coat combo, a nice riff on a traditional suit with pieces I’ll be wearing both separately and together all season long.

This coat deserves special attention and is easily one of my very favorite finds of the season.  The black piping makes for such a gorgeous finishing touch, as is that beautiful faux fur collar.  To make things even better, the coat comes in petite, regular AND tall sizing (God bless you, BR!) and the faux fur collar is actually removable for days when you’re feeling a more laid-back outerwear option.  I’m telling you though, the ability to add on that collar when you have a special occasion is huge.  It’s surprising what an impact the addition has, which ends up making it seem like you actually have two different coats.  And while we’re on the subject of dynamite coats, I don’t know what they’re putting in the water over there, but Banana Republic has been killing the outerwear game this season.  I also snagged this coat a couple weeks ago and it’s basically the most immaculate, perfectly-fitting thing I’ve bought all year.  I’m pretty sure entirely sure my mom legit tried to steal it out of my suitcase before I flew back to NYC from Thanksgiving.  She’s very sneaky.
