I’ve never been a big fan of traditional suiting, but I get that in a lot of fields it’s a necessity, especially when you’re first entering the interviewing game.  I remember when my mom took me to pick out my first suit and I was insistent on an option that wouldn’t look too stuffy.  In the end, we picked out a skirt/wide-legged pant/blazer combination (so I could mix it up a bit) and a bright, canary yellow button-down blouse; traditional, yet not.  While I was in the interviewing process I loved having pieces I could mix and match, which is why I loved the idea of the Byer Basics Box.  It’s perfect for someone just entering the workforce (or someone already in it), since it’s not only crazy budget-friendly, but also gives you all the key pieces you need to keep it conservative, while offering the option to mix things up.  I paired the blazer and pencil skirt with a t-shirt, studded boots and a chunky necklace for a look I can feel like myself in, while still being meeting ready — a perk of working in a creative field.

Originally, I’d planned on this being the perfect skirt to sport for a day-long bachelorette party I mean the feather-fringe just screams party.  But of course I couldn’t hold off on wearing it and decided it could be dressed down as easily as it could be dressed up.  So I paired it with a sweatshirt, cozy cardigan and a pair of flats with a little pop, proving that even the most obvious “party skirts” can be appropriate for day.

If you’re currently located anywhere in the NorthEast, I know I’m not telling you anything new when I say, “Brrr!”  All in all, we’ve lucked out with a fairly mild winter — up until a few weeks ago at least.  Now it’s really feeling like winter (hello, snow!) and I’m happier than ever that one of my best girls got me this knitted scarf over the holidays.  It was the perfect add on for my already layered sweater situation, creating a warm and cozy combo of black and white textures.
