Good morning everyone!
Even the strong and invincible Olivia Pope went out of her way to wear this dress. She exchanged her signature pants style for a feminine, yet confident number from Michael Kors for Fitz’s inauguration day. Just to confirm the appeal of this dress, we saw it again on Savi on the TV series Mistresses.
Here is another alternative to this amazing dress available on TeodoraB.com:
As a representative of the girlie girls, I love swimming in a sea of pastel colors. I believe that pastel colors and I have something in common. While my character is indecisive, pastel colors could not decide if they want to be whites or if they want to be light colors, so they just got stuck in between. My first dive in these lovely hues was by pairing this mint ZARA jacket and peach Ann Taylor sweater with a soft pink pair of jeans from Target. Some of my other favorite pastels are lavender, primrose yellow, baby blue, and jade green. The best pairing for pastel colors, in my opinion, are other pastel colors. That is why, in my search for work alternative styling ideas for this peachy/salmon skirt, I defaulted to this baby blue pink top from ZARA. And if there was any doubt about the femininity of this outfit, the navy blue ribbon of the skirt dissipated it completely.

I wanted to share with you some of the ways I have really enjoyed wearing peplum at work. Peplum is one of the trends that has been popular for a while and can be worn both at work and at play. I hope it stays around for a long, long time. Luckily, peplum can be a part of dresses, skirts, tops and even pants. Blair with Atlantic-Pacific wears this trend beautifully by sporting a peplum leather-like belt from ZARA or by layering two peplum pieces. But if you are still new to this trend, here is how you can easily add some feminine touches to your wardrobe:
I hope you all are having a great week so far! The styling for this outfit was inspired by my Facebook followers as they picked it as their favorite out of a collage I created while back. As anything I do initially, I thought of this green peplum skirt as a piece that will gather dust in my closet. It was challenging to come up with pairing ideas but once I put the skirt on the form, they just started flowing in. Which is your favorite styling?
To many, it looks like orange. The manufacturer label says tomato red. I think, however, I would go with Pantone’s 2012 color of the year label, Tangerine Tango. It sounds so much more sophisticated. The featured skirt from Ann Taylor is more than a year old and to find a complete match in this shirt is almost a miracle. Finding colors for the accessories proved to be easier. All I had to do, is to look at this bird-print top, to realize that Pantone colors from previous years are very complimenting. Specifically, blue iris, turquoise and mimosa colors. Would you wear this lovely color to the office? What would you pair it with?
