Morning Line: February 2

Feb 2, 2015

One of the comments that I hear from readers is that it’s easy to pick out pieces that they love, but difficult to turn those pieces into outfits.  So I thought this week, I’d do something a little different.  The morning post will feature three pieces from the same retailer, all costing under-$100, that make one killer outfit.

Jacquard Short Sleeve Sweatshirt ($49) // Polka Dot Utility Blouse ($59) // Marisa Stretch Trouser ($79)

Red and navy is a classic combination.  The pop of this cherry-hued sweatshirt and the dotted blouse creates a stylish, slightly whimsical accompaniment to the staid navy suit trousers.

If you work in a professional office, this is a good casual Friday option.  If you work somewhere more relaxed, it’s a good option for any day of the week.  You can also switch out the trousers for jeans.

If you prefer a cardigan, LOFT offers the same punchy red in a simple cardi.  And if button-up shirts aren’t your thing, they have a crewneck blouse in the same dotted print.

Need shoe recommendations?  Glad you asked.  I’d wear a navy pointed toe pump or pointed toe flat.  I would avoid wearing a red shoe; it’s a bit too on the nose.

All of these pieces can be purchased in tall or petite sizes.  Need plus-sizes?  Try this Jones NY cardi, with this Forever21 blouse, and these Sejour trousers.

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
