Jacket: Zara Patch Pocket Blazer ($90) 

From Left, Ring: Soho Sliced Ring ($45) Belt: Big Buddha Snake Belt ($27)  Bag: Tory Burch 797 Satchel ($325) Shoes: Call Me Pumps ($110) Dress: Balmain Sleeveless Dress ($151)

From Right, Sunglasses: Ray Ban Aviators ($145)  Bag: Jean Louis Handbag ($85) Shoes: Sirri Nude Moccasin ($348) Necklaces: Carbon Copy Wishbone Necklace ($24) and Serifina Orange Pendant ($65) Top: Reiss Manuk Top ($52) Jeans: Skyline Skinny ($158)

For the June Office.  I love the look of white and orange together, and this crisp sheath would be a welcome addition to most professional wardrobes.  But since there’s only one left in stock, check out this $75 Ralph Lauren dress that I like even better.  Plus-size? Check out this Tahari with buckle detail on the waist. Petite? Try this Ann Taylor square neck sheath.

How great is this belt?  I love the slim look and the shape of the buckle.  In this case, I would belt underneath the jacket to emphasize the waist.

I added this navy bag from Tory Burch, which is currently 50-percent-off.  Her classic dome satchel, and my favorite, the Penelope satchel, are also on sale.

Add a pump in a nude-to-you color or a tortoise high heel, and this outfit is nearly complete.  As for jewelry, I chose this cut-out ring.  Want something similar for less? I also like this cut-out Mango ring for $20, and this $5 spiral ring from Forever 21.

For the hair, I would wear it up in a twist.  For the makeup, I would wear your every-day look with a sable shadow and brown eyeliner.

For September Casual.  I mentioned this morning that I think this jacket is the perfect summer to fall transition piece, so here’s a casual look for the chillier months.  I like the mix between the orange jacket and the striped tee.  If your figure would look best in a traditional cut jacket, I found this orange blazer at Dillard’s.

These Paige Skyline jeans are my absolute favorite.  The fit is great, they have just a hint of stretch and the washes are nice and dark.  They also come in white for summer and a lovely bootcut for those who don’t like skinny jeans ($76!).

I accessorized the look with aviator shades (cheaper here), a casual leather bucket tote and a cool pair of metallic moccasins.  Like the shoes, but not the price?  I found these $115 mocs and these $25 gold toe cap flats.  As for the necklaces, the 36″ wishbone pendant should pair well with the 30″ orange necklace.

For the hair, I would wear it down with a hint of curl at the ends or some waves.  For the makeup, I would wear a sheer gold shadow and a rosy-nude lipstick.

    I must admit, I wasn’t crazy about this jacket when I saw it on the earlier post. But these two styling suggestions are fabulous! Thank you.

    I think that Zara blazer might be too boxy for my taste, but I love the Tory Burch Satchel. You pick out the best bags!

    Just bought the white sheath dress. It’s actually $56 with their online code.

    For any late comers, that Ralph Lauren dress is STILL $56 as of July 5th.
