Fall/Winter Looks

Look for Less – Office to Happy Hour for under $100

For my third Look for Less post, I wanted to put something together that I knew even I’d find helpful. I travel for work a lot. I often find myself running from meeting to meeting, only having to go straight to dinner/drinks. Therefore, I need something functional and comfortable that I’ll be able to wear from breakfast all the way through dinner. The pieces I’m going to show are going to allow you to look polished and professional during the day, but chic and stylish at night.


This look is inspired by this snap from Pinterest:
Here are the pieces you’ll need to recreate this look:

1.) Black Dress – I think a good LBD is something every woman needs in her closet. In fact, I would argue you need a few. There are so many occasions that warrant one. In the professional world, an LBD will be a staple that you will mix and match into countless business casual looks. 
2.) White Blazer- I think I’ve made it quite clear how much I love white articles of clothing. Nothing looks more crisp or clean than a good piece in a shade of white. A white blazer is just as versatile as a black dress; you can throw it on over jeans and a tee or a more formal dress for an instant outfit upgrade.
3.) Brown Suede Pumps– These shoes are classic and can be used in so many different looks. Based on the shade, I really would be hard-pressed to find something these wouldn’t go with. I think suede is the perfect texture for fall/winter.
4.) Gold Wristlet- This little bag is the perfect size to keep in your computer bag during the day for the essentials. Then, at night, you can pull it out and you’re ready for happy hour. The gold tone of this one is so pretty and looks more expensive than it is.
5.) Statement Necklace– I have more statement necklaces than I care to admit. Seriously, my husband thinks I’m crazy. But I rely on a good bauble to accent my outfits and complete the look. A good statement necklace can transform an otherwise drab ensemble into a ready-to go look.
