Look at how quickly my skin pales when the sun goes away. Kind of freakish. Anyway, perhaps to match, I've been favoring black, blue, and gray combinations lately...

Brooks Brothers button-down (similar here)
United Colors of Benetton sweater (similar here and here)
Michael Kors watch
Hermes bangles (similar here and here)
Zara skirt
Saddleback Leather bag
Jean Michel Cazabat shoes

Beautiful skirt, I love the color. The outfit looks great. I want a collared shirt :) I'm sure I have some in storage that I've probably long forgotten. Gotta go looking!

I adore those shoes. And us fair skin ladies have to stick together ~ so I say flaunt it loud and proud! ;)

Christina said...

I could immediately tell that shirt was from Brooks Brothers. I think I bought my boyfriend the men's version. Ooo I should borrow it.

jess said...

I turn pale, too! I always have to have two different colors or foundation, one for when it's December and one for when it's May.

Lynsey Michelle said...

I died laughing at this post's title as well. So funny, and SO true. Just found your blog and adore it. As another "working" blogger trapped within the confines of business casual, I appreciate your sense of corporate style.

Katherine said...

You look amazing! Just found your blog and am enjoying myself looking through all your lovely outfits - and I'm the same way as you, I go pale right away!

Eli said...

Is your title literally about dressing for work? I find it so hard some times now to find the line between what is my style or is that my style because I have to wear certain things to work?

I'm holding onto this tiny shade of tan from when I was in Mexico this summer, I'm scared of how pale I'm going to get soon!

6roove said...

I love your skirt, these black side panels are great!

Carli said...

Adorable outfit! The bag and watch are beautiful!

Sarah said...

This outfit is even cuter in person! I'm super envious of that bag :)
