Hip, Casual Work Look

Can’t get enough. I find myself accumulating a large number of teal pieces. It’s such a lush color. This teal cable knit sweater with a v-neck draws out the subtle teal in the houndstooth cropped pants. Some deep red patent flats add the final touch. So now the task: how to make the work as hip and casual as the look?

Looking Back, Looking Forward

It’s time; time to take stock. Wednesday, the middle of the work week, is the perfect day to stop, and take a moment to look back and look forward. Wednesdays will be dedicated to featuring a vintage or modern classic piece from my collection.

Today’s feature is a vintage Marina Rinaldi bag. This hard leather bag was handed down to me by a family member. A rich, cinnamon brown, the refined and structured shape is similar to the Hermes Kelly bag. The top handle ensures that this bag will be carried– prominently and visible—and thus taking a central role in the overall look of any outfit. The bag also features a concealable chain interwoven with leather, which adds an elegant finishing touch, and gives the option to carry it over your shoulder.
