I’m a huge fan of the sixties housewife style. Call me old fashioned, but I like to think of my style as classic with a edge. I paired this fabulous polka dot shirtdress with stud pumps (similar to the beautiful Valentino, but like 5% of the cost and just as fabulous looking!) and my DIY pearl safety pin necklace. I think it’s the perfect mix of girly with the polka dots and pearls and edgy with the studs and safety pins. It’s all about keeping them guessing!

I know you’re probably thinking, “Danielle, just how many colored blazers do you have?” At any given time, my closet is stocked with 5-6 blazers and only two of those are black. I consider blazers not only a wardrobe essential, but a staple. This one is special because it was a Christmas present from my momma. After seeing it at Gap early last fall and falling in love with it, my mom went back and snatched it up for me. I’ve been patiently waiting to style it for work. I knew the black pants and oxford would pair so wonderfully with it especially when I added the matching colored pumps.

I feel like my blog should just be renamed 50 Ways to Wear Chambray because I’m that obsessed. It truly is one of the most versatile items in my wardrobe through every season. It’s been fairly cold here, so I’ve been all about the layers. Yesterday I decided to pair my chambray (denim) under a denim jacket tucked into a gray maxi skirt. It was the perfect outfit for a windy day and a warmer office because I had layers to take off and still had a very complete outfit. That’s important because layering for cold weather can sometimes look like a hodge podge of pieces if you don’t consciously think about how you layer them and if you plan on taking off any outerwear.
