Totes & Tweeds

There are many times where we find ourselves running from our 9 to 5 to a happy hour, or a social or networking event.  These situations almost always cause for last minute scrambles of putting together an outfit and touching up your make-up and hair at the office because you did not prepare.  Preparation is key and outfit and makeup/hair versatility is essential.


Over the next couple of days, I will show you how adding accessories and making small outfit tweaks can change the feel of an outfit and make it appropriate for the office, but versatile enough to take it out to an after 5 gathering.


Below I paired Express wide-legged slacks with a tweed blazer, and classic white button up.  I rounded out my look with my go to accessories: Michael Kors watch, Tiffany silver bracelet, Aldo pumps, and Express beaded necklace along with my new faves: my studded My Arm Charms bracelet and F&W Style Lenox Tote from their new spring collection.   The My Arms Charms bracelet is simple, but gives you a little extra as well that pairs nicely with the minimalistic styling of the watch and the Tiffany bracelet.  My F&W Style Lenox mini tote adds the right amount of color and detail to make the overall look pop.


I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.

  1. Nice post, Venus! I really loooove the black and white combo with the hint of color. Your lipstick matches your tote. I would match the outfit with a pencil skirt rather than wide leg pants because I really adore skirts. In any case, your pictures/poses are wonderful and really capture the essence of the look. Keep up the incredible posts!
