Must-Have Spring Power Pieces

Spring Power PiecesSpring is here, so bring on the skirts, strappy sandals, and most importantly the brights and whites! I always find that dressing for work can be trickier during warmer months than the cooler ones. In winter I throw on a blazer over skinny jeans with a blouse and call it good. However, as temperatures warm up it can be challenging to toe the line between springtime casual and workplace professional.

Here are my three essentials for owning that lady boss style all season long.

THE WHITE BLAZER: A white blazer is the perfect transitional piece for the season. White creates a bold pop of contrast, helping you stand out from the drab masses.

LACE-UP BLOCK HEELS: Sandals can be challenging to pull of at work, as they often look a little too beach ready. Lace-up block heels are the perfect in-between. The lacing evokes a gladiator-style sandal, while the block heel dresses things up with a strong edge. No dainty kitten heel here.

COORDINATING SEPARATES: Often women adopt more masculine styles in the workplace to project an air of seriousness: power suits, starched collared shirts, monochromatic outfits. While I do love a good menswear inspired outfit, I also admire women who own their femininity in the workplace. The strongest women I know embrace their womanhood. Coordinating separates are a ladylike take on a warm weather skirt suit.

On a different note, I do want to let y’all know that I’ll be taking a break from the blog for personal reasons and will be less active on social media as well. Nothing dramatic, I’m just in serious need of some extra me-time these days. Thanks for understanding.
