Weekday Wardrobe

Bekka Palmer Photography

My weekday wardrobe is pretty much always a variation of this – a pencil skirt, loose top, blazer, and heels.  It’s a look that’s professional, but not stuffy, and easily takes me from day to night if I don’t have time to run home and change between meetings.  I love a white pencil skirt for spring and was immediately drawn to this one by Jonathan Simkhai.  After wearing black all winter, anything white is a welcome change!  Hope you had a great weekend!

    This outfit is stunningly chic. The elements are simple yet create a classic, timeless look. The navies are a wonderful not to spring weather and days spent by the beach. The accents of tan leather and gold details modernizes the ensemble perfectly.

    […] With Love From Kat is one of my favorite style blogs.  I love the easy way she styles pieces for every occasion.  For this look, I wanted to find basic pieces that took the outfit she created and re-built it in a more professional way.  Because while her look is perfectly suited to a creative office, those in professional spaces need a few tweaks to make it perfect for them.
