I don’t know about you, but when I get a call for a job interview the first thing that comes to mind is “Yes! I have an interview, hope I get the job!”, immediately followed by “OMG, what am I going to wear?!”. Dressing for an interview is risky business. You want to look professional, yet stand out. It is important to leave a lasting impression on the interviewer, and if you choose to wear something a little different than most, they will be sure to remember you. I chose a green blazer, rather than traditional black, to stand out from the rest. It’s up to you to bring your ‘A’ game during the interview, but if you take a few fashion risks, you’re already ahead of the game!

The weather changed completely on us yesterday, and although I’m not quite ready for freezing temperatures and snow, I was happy to bring out my favorite winter coat! I absolutely love this Michael by Michael Kors wool coat. I’m in love with the camel color, and how well it goes with practically everything. Styling it with a red, chunky knit scarf adds texture and automatically winterizes your look!
Layering is a great way to look put together, while still being casual. When you know you are going to be out and about all day, it’s always great to layer (you never know what the weather might do)! I went for a walk in the park and then downtown with my family and felt great in these casual layers, not to mention these wedges from TOMS are super comfortable to wear all day!

Here are a few shots of my Sunday best from this past weekend. I’m a huge fan of damask print and thought that this dress from Charming Charlie was adorable. It’s the perfect dress for church, brunch with the ladies, or even a fancy dinner with the hubby! The bright pink peacoat really pops against the neutrals, adding some flare to a classic look.
When it comes to shopping, I prefer to buy items that are versatile. These plaid tights found at T.J.Maxx a few years ago have been a favorite of mine for as long as I can remember. They look so classy styled with a little black dress and high heels, yet they feel appropriate paired with an oversized sweater and combat boots for a relaxed grungy look. I love styling from one extreme to the next!

Sometimes you just want to mix it up and wear a printed piece to work. Cheetah is a neutral in my opinion and is so easy to incorporate into your work attire. It allows you to stand out, while still being appropriate for business. Whether it’s with a cheetah jacket, pencil skirt, pumps, or a clutch, you will be sure to turn heads at the office!
I recently wore this outfit on a date with my husband, and I love how it turned out! The printed skirt and ruffled heels are extremely feminine, so I chose to balance the look with an edgy leather jacket, chunky necklace, and sophisticated satchel. How would you style this 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target skirt?
