Closet Remix: Lady Lawyer

Hello friends!

It’s been a little over two months since I retired my business suits.  I even moved them into our office closet!  My bedroom closet {let’s be real, it’s not “ours”} is now filled with bright colors, patterns, and casual{ish} pieces that make me happy.  And I’m slowly but surely finding my new non-lady lawyer style, thanks in large part to Instagram style challenges.

I’ve had a few kind women mention that they miss seeing my work posts on Instagram, so I thought I’d share a few remixes with my favorite suits.  J.Crew suiting was the backbone of my professional wardrobe, especially the super 120s wool.  But I must note that the pricing has skyrocketed since I first started buying suits, while the quality has declined.  {Read more about this here.}  That said, J.Crew is offering 30% off through April 26th with the code “TIMETOSHOP,” so if you’re in the market for suiting, this is the time to stock up!

Personally, I’m not a fan of pants suits.  I’ve tried a few different styles and they just don’t work for me.  And after spending many hours in court watching fellow lady lawyers stand and argue, I’ve come to the conclusion that pants suits don’t work for a lot of women.  My two cents: if you want to rock a pants suit, you must get them tailored.  And be sure to look at your pants from all angles {take a selfie if you can’t get to a three way mirror!}.  Unstructured wool can be very unkind to even the most fabulous derriere. 😉

I prefer to buy three piece suits: dress, jacket, and pencil skirt.  I like having options, and this combo is fantastic for business travel.  I’m wearing the Emmaleigh and Bridget dresses in the pictures below, which are sadly no longer available, but I’m swooning over this bow-shoulder dress.  J.Crew Factory also has great suiting options at more affordable prices, including a dead-ringer for my beloved Emmaleigh dress (1, 23). Both J.Crew and J.Crew Factory sell pinstripe options as well (1, 2, 3, 4).

I’ve shared a few different ways I styled my suits in the past: hope you enjoy!  {Need more inspiration?  Click here.}  Since all of my suiting is neutral, I add a pop of color or a fun pattern in my shoes or tops {and lipstick, of course}, and almost always wear tights to combat courtroom air conditioning.  And even though I’m no longer wearing them on a regular basis, I’m still dreaming about that perfectly tailored red suit…

Thank you very much for stopping by!

Closet Remix: J.Crew Scattered/Optic Dot Dress

Hello friends!

In this first installment of my Closet Remix** series, I’m sharing this darling polka dot dress (with pockets!!).  Confession: I’ve purchased this dress twice.  In 2013, I bought the J.Crew Scattered Dot Shift Dress (item # 35551), in my usual size for J.Crew dresses at the time (size 6).  Here’s a picture from the J.Crew website, although it is no longer available:

J.Crew Scattered Dot Shift Dress 35551

I loved this dress but it was waaaaay too big, and sadly I had to return it.  (Insert rant about J.Crew’s crazy sizing here.) So I was delighted to find it pop back at J.Crew Factory last February (2014) as the Optic Dot Dress (item #A0116):

J.Crew Factory Optic Dot Dress  A0116

In case you can’t tell, the dresses are 100% identical–including the crazy sizing.  I’m wearing a 2 in the photos below, and this dress is swimming on me.  As fun as it sounds in theory to have a tiny size be too big, it makes shopping online quite a chore, because I can wear anything from a 0 to a 4 depending on the style.  (In contrast, I consistently wear a 4 in all Gap brands.)  It’s on my list of pieces I want to get tailored, but for now I’m in make-it-work mode.  And I included the style numbers and full names of both dresses in case you want to search for this lovely number on eBay or Poshmark!  But I would highly recommend sizing down.  I wasn’t able to find a perfect match, but here are a few cute options (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

Here are four ways I’ve worn this dress, starting with the most recent.  I’ve included exact links if things are still available (e.g., J.Crew staples) and similar items when I could find them.

Whether you’re in a style rut or just looking for some ways to bring spring dresses and skirts into less than springy weather, I hope this post helps inspire you to find new ways to style some of your favorite pieces!  I love how little details like adding a belt or a scarf, or a bright shoe, transform an outfit.  What are your favorite ways to remix?

As always, thank you so very much for stopping by.  And happy Friday!

Is it me, or did February just fly by?  Sheesh.  Here’s my February, mostly via iPhone and Instagram.  Husband and I saw two good friends get married in San Diego this month, and it was one of the nicest weddings ever.  Ah, l’amour.  ❤  I couldn’t help include a few pictures of the fur kids, too.

Thanks for your patience, friends.  I’m hoping to actually post daily in March!

So January happened

Wow, I really hoped to post more than once a month in 2013!  I will do my best to make March a better month than February.

That said, here’s January in a nutshell.  More catch up.  More outfits.  Lots of color.  Lots of work.  Not much else to report!
