top: banana republic
pants: banana republic
flats: dolce vita
today's mantra; simple and chic. this silk top has been a favorite for a long time. i originally bought it to wear under my traditional black suit. business suits are so not me, and i knew i needed something that displayed a bit more of my personality under that buttoned-up look. enter the perfect spotted silk top that gives just a peek into my true fashion sensibilities. i cannot stress enough how much of a difference a fun top can make under a suit. you do not have to give up professionalism for style. a silk top in a bright color, a basic white button-up with a ruffled collar or a patterned blouse in a luxurious fabric are all great ways to spice up you typical suit.
okay, so tangent completed. i wore my silk patterned top today with a simple pair of tailored black pants and pointy black flats. a great look that was professional and effortlessly chic.
