No matter the season, delicate necklaces are always in style. Whether you wear them alone or choose to layer a few at a time, this look is a simple go-to for any woman on any occasion. Don’t know the first thing about layering? Fear not. I’ve linked a few of my favorite pre-layered options above. They’re a great way to add a little something to your look without having to worry about balance or all those chains getting tangled!
A Monday must-have on a Thursday? Uh, yes. Because I couldn’t wait till next Monday to share these with you guys. If you’re a female or like… alive, you’re probably already familiar with JCrew’s No. 2 pencil skirts. But just in case you’ve been living under a rock, let’s indulge in a quick refresh, shall we? Don’t feel badly if you’re a rock dweller, I just recently learned what this whole, “fleek” thing was.
Over the years, JCrew has changed up their game. Price tag and quality has suffered. But one article of clothing has remained the same: The No. 2 pencil skirt. Printed, patterned, solid, or textured, the No.2 pencil skirt game is always tight and is incredibly flattering on a number of figures. And forget about falling in love with a gorgeous pencil skirt only to curse its name after trying it on because it barely covers your ass. JCrew makes a “tall” option for us amazons. Work appropriate from a work appropriate clothing line. What a novel idea.
We’ve all been there. But this weekend, the case of having all of the clothes but nothing to wear hit me hard. And 32 minutes before I was supposed to meet my date. Xanax, anyone? Let’s travel back, shall we…
It’s date night. My moisturizing mask has done its job and I have faith I’m going to wing my eyeliner like a champ tonight. I’ve decided dark, skinny, waxed denim trumps a mini shift dress. One part down, 86 to go. 30 minutes later, the look, the hair, and the makeup are complete. I’ve even got my coat on. But there I stand. In my closet. Barefoot. I have no shoes that go with what I’m wearing. Not a one. For a simple jean + Olivia Pope coat sartorial situation. Well over 50 pairs of shoes and I had no shoes. I had no shoes!? I HAD NO SHOES. Boots were not an option. Booties looked wrong because the leg of the jean was so long that it crumpled around the ankle. Exactly the look that I wanted to pair with a pump to elongate it even further. But, as I’ve said before, I have no shoes. All my pumps were either too business professional or too Fashion Week. My outfit, as a whole, was the statement so I didn’t want to wear aggressive shoes. Just a grey felt pump. Or a chunky nude something. Or maybe even some kind of heel with a pattern. Right. So I don’t have any of those options. I settled with my go to heels but the next day I sat in front of my computer screen and bought a few new heels that will work, specifically on weekends. Some of them can double as a work heel depending on your office environment.
Moral of the story? Every woman needs a few pair of extremely verstaile pumps in her closet. Including me.
