Trendy Casual

I am faced with a dilemma. In exactly one week I begin my internship at a very fierce PR agency, and I must look “Trendy Casual”

With a dress code like “Trendy Casual,” a normal person would be thrilled to find out they can wear jeans every day if they want, but this stresses me out. I need to look ferocious...at all times. My wardrobe needs a complete overhallok that’s a blatant exaggeration, but a few pieces need to be added. I think I know where to start...

Beginning with some of these yummy finds, I have set out to re-vamp my wardrobe...

Today I have begun with my cardigan and skirt list, but as the week continues look for my posts on shoes, tights and shirts to go with your new "Trendy Casual" work wardrobe.

Let's begin with some Cardi's. My ultimate fav and wardrobe MUST HAVE!!!!

The Jackie Cardigan. A MUST HAVE cardigan for every wardrobe. It comes in a plethora of colors and sits right at the hip. The cotton material can be dressed up with a cute pencil skirt or dressed down with a pair of skinny jeans and ballet flats.

The Merino ocelot cardigan is a new favorite of mine. It is FABULOUS!!!! With its 3/4 sleeves and slightly fitted silhouette, the Ocelot Cardi will look fabulous with the Silk Francis Cami or with a fabulous t-shirt. I will be pairing mine with my favorite black AG Stilt Jeans

J.Crew Merino Maya cardigan is next on my "Trendy Casual" list. It has a slightly gathered front and is super light, which makes it the perfect cardigan for a breezy Fall day. 3/4 sleeves make it a more casual cardigan, but I can definitely see myself rocking it with a wool skirt and some boots.

Skirts are Next!!!

I have a decent collection of pencil skirts...and by decent I mean I own a basic black skirt and one in grey. I need to spice it up! I think these will do the trick...

J.Crew Silk indigo floral skirt is just what I am looking for. I love the vintage inspired floral print and the colors are just delishhh. I'm also a sucker for pockets so this skirt definitely gets extra credit in that department.

I love love love the felted Mini for fall. I WILL be pairing mine with a cardi(obvi) and a pair of scrumptious tights. I think that the Ivory is absolutely perfect for what i want...plus I already have it in dark gray from last season.

I will never ever own this skirt because it costs more than my paycheck will be, but how can you not be completely and utterly in love with this sparkly masterpiece...

Happy Shopping!!!!

Living in a J.Crew filled dream world.
