What to Wear: Back to Work

The first day at work after the holidays is back-to-school for grownups. It's a great chance to start the fresh year with some fresh duds. I've been hitting up the online sales at Bloomingdales, Nordstrom and Barneys - all easy to do local returns when things don't work out...as capes are apt to do.

Cape - This is either awesome or a terrible idea. We'll see when it arrives. Thank heaven for free returns!
Sweater - White cashmere turtleneck on sale from Bloomingdales.
Shorts - High waisted shorts with tights is the new pencil skirt?
Tights - The super opaque line from Hue is the best.
Boots - I'm wearing flats for my walk to work, but these suede boots are adorable.
Handbag - Vintage french handbag in black.
Gloves - In olive green leather.
Headband - An easy way to dress up a loose bun.

My money's on you looking awesome in that cape.

Dude, I've loved capes from the first moment I saw them back in stores!

While shorts with tights are cute, they'll NEVER take the place of a great pencil skirt...in my opinion. You just can't get the femininity with shorts that you effortlessly gain with a pencil.

So true! But you can't sit cross-legged in a pencil skirt ;)
