Happy Friday, everyone!
Have the last two weeks been as busy for you as they have been for me? I feel like my social calendar, family calendar, and work schedules have all erupted into mass chaos. Thanks to my hectic agenda, my house looks like a hurricane recently passed through and I’m not entirely sure I ate breakfast this morning (that is saying something since I very rarely forget a meal).
Despite my lack of self-awareness and the explosion of mess in my kitchen, I am thrilled that today is Friday. The weekend is almost here and I am ready for some good old-fashioned R&R. I am looking forward to sleeping in past 7:00 a.m. tomorrow morning, making animal shaped pancakes for my cute kidlet, hitting up a yoga class, and getting my house back in order. I also plan to peruse a few of the magazines that I got in the mail over the last few weeks. After all, I can’t get behind on my Kardashian drama and Vogue cover models. First world problems, right?
Before I get to the relaxing events of the glorious weekend, I have to get through Friday. For many of us, Friday is a casual day around the office and *gasp* jeans are permitted! We all know how much I love my deconstructed denim, but my office seems to frown upon the “worn in” look. Believe me, I too am surprised by this.
In honor of my professional workplace, today’s post is all about fashionista Friday and the professional way to wear denim at the office.
My favorite look is a great structured blazer with a little interest. Check out this amazing cross-back blazer by Sam Edelman. Pair it with a great drapey top like this Vince Camuto faux wrap shirttail blouse. You want something that will peek out from below the criss-cross of the blazer. Finally, pair it with a great pair of Madewell skinny jeans and some awesome heels with a little splash of color.

Good morning, fashionable friends!
Summer is slowly coming to a close as we prepare for new school schedules and cooler temperatures. So, even if it isn’t time to put away those shorts and pull out the parkas, it is nearly time for the implementation of the transitional wardrobe.
Transitional wardrobes are a girl’s best friend. Transitional wardrobes are a blend of pieces from warmer weather clothing and cooler weather clothing. With layers, you can be prepared for the first bits of cooler weather while still maintaining an appropriate style for the hotter moments of the day that are yet to let our sweaty selves be.
Although everyone is familiar with layering, Miranda Kerr is the queen of modern transitional dress. She has mastered color pallets, fabrics, and flirty styles while managing to remain appropriate for any woman to imitate on a daily basis. Here are just a few of her transitional wardrobe styles
In any one of these photos, a layer or two could be removed to make the outfits more warm weather friendly. Also, the end of summer time also means a rush to wear all of those nautical inspired items that we bought for summer (i.e. blue and white striped sweater, etc.).
The other thing that makes Miranda Kerr’s wardrobe so functional is that her statement pieces (i.e. cropped leather jacket, utility jacket, booties, neutral totes, etc.) are timeless and appropriate for all seasons. Summer may not yet be over, but it’s time to start preparing for some stylish layers.
Miranda Kerr is well known for having impeccable taste in clothes. She’s always well dressed and her picks are flattering in nearly every instance.
Today’s inspirational picture has been chosen in honor of fall and the cooler weather. The classic trench doubled with some easy to wear, casual pieces makes for a great on-the-go look. Keep makeup simple and hair understated with this look – even a cute topknot would do nicely.
Happy shopping, fashionable friends!
