Sunglasses: Ray-Ban Wayfarers ($155) // Dress: Ava & Aiden Sheath ($79) // Bracelet: Nordstrom Bead Bracelets ($32) // Sweater: Mango Leopard-Print Cardigan ($49) // Bag: London Fog Saffiano Leather ($55) // Shoes: Michael Kors Pumps ($120)

When I saw this outfit on the owner of New York’s Kirna Zabete boutique, I liked the concept, but the execution wasn’t right for my lifestyle.  An a-line mini-dress, platforms, and a pricey handbag just won’t translate into my world.  But I knew that with a bit of tweaking, I could create an outfit that combined blush and leopard in a work-appropriate ensemble.

I love this Ava & Aiden dress from Gilt for a desk-to-dinner look.  If you prefer something sleeker, this sleeveless Antonio Melani dress is the way to go.  Looking for a work appropriate a-line?  Try this dress from Cremieux.  Plus-size?  Try this Adrianna Papell dress.

I added the Mango leopard cardigan because the grey and blush palette suits my personal style better than the tan palette in the photo.  I also like this DvF cardigan in a mix of black and taupe.  The leopard print brings in a bit of modern flair to an otherwise basic work look.

For the accessories, I liked the look of the Ray-Bans, so I kept them.  With the color palette, a silver bracelet felt like the right choice.  I also like this thin cuff from Marjorie Baer.

These textured grey pumps felt like the right choice to bring in a little bit of structure.  Looking for something under-$75?  I like these Nine West ankle-strap pump and these Norwood pumps.

As for the bag, I like this dome satchel in black.  London Fog makes a similar tote that has great storage compartments.  The bag also comes in a pale tan.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
