Top – The Limited | Skirt – Banana Republic Factory Outlet | Shoes – Nine West | Necklace – gift from my husband | Earrings – Bergner’s

Last night I did a closet consultation with the goal of helping her break out of the rut of neutral bottoms and a plain top.  As someone whose uniform consisted of very similar things for years it was fun to help someone else see how to jazz up plain items.

Which is why I found it funny that this morning I was drawn to the very  mold I was trying to break my consult out  of!  However, I stuck to the “rule of three” I taught her last night.  Neutral bottom (black skirt), colored top (with some fun details), and simple but funky jewelry (big hoop earrings).  We also talked about not wearing two blousy things together.  That just makes you look frumpy!

It can be difficult, though, to talk office appropriate and fashionable outfits when it’s almost 100 degrees Fahrenheit outside!  When it’s this hot a skirt, tank  and simple jewelry are about all I can handle.
