Business Casual for Spring

When it comes to looking fancy, I’m usually more of a dress girl.  A dress is a comfortable one piece outfit, so what’s not to like?  But recently, I’m learning the benefits of mix-and-match, especially when running from work to school and back again.  Here, the white blazer is both business and weather appropriate, while the front zipped skirt adds a bit of funk.  The skirt’s pockets also make up for the blazer’s lack of them…

Whether at work or in class, the right outfit makes me feel ready to take on the world!

The shoes are my favorite addition.  Pretty and feminine, but practical for a busy day.  Also, I’ve yet to find an outfit that doesn’t work with bright red shoes!

Do you need multiple outfits during the day too?

Rainy Day Casual

I know it’s hard to believe, but those legs and arms actually belong to the same body…  After months of pants, I love that we’re getting such a beautiful spring here in North Carolina!

The dress is actually one I altered last year.  My mother compared elbow-length sleeves and navy color to African girls’ school uniforms, so I knew they had to go. I followed the back of the collar under the armpit and around the back for a halter neck effect.  I can never decide whether to change out the fabric buttons for gold ones, but I love how the cut highlights the points of the collar!

A peek at my accessories:  Wing earrings and a cursive Love ring

Of course, it rained in the afternoon, so I swapped the sandals for rainboots and grabbed an umbrella!  I swore I wouldn’t fall victim to the rainboot trend that ravaged colleges everywhere, but these were impossible to resist.  I’ll give them their own post someday, I swear…

Until then, I’ll leave you with another shot of my amazing umbrella!  I picked it up the summer before last in China out of necessity, but have you ever seen a shiny silver umbrella before?!

Tell me, how do you dress for the rain but stay stylish?
