Polka-dot Professional

My wardrobe consists of some favorite color palettes and staple pieces, but there are a few specific colors and patterns that I often run to when I’m in a rush for both my workwear or daily dress.  Black and white are always reliable for any occasion.  When I moved to New York and worked at Vanity Fair, my wardrobe quickly grew from bright vibrant colors to predominantly black.  While some people may think black is a little too boring or dark, I learned quickly that wearing black was an easy way to elevate my look without spending an arm and a leg.  I was able to switch in different tops to create completely new outfits with ease and black always looks chic.

One of my universal staples is a solid pair of pixie pants… which is probably why I have them in black, navy and gray 😉  While you can find them at many stores, my go-to spot for pixie pants is J.Crew.  And because stripes and polka-dots are classic and never go out of style, they are great patterns to invest in for your wardrobe.  I love purchasing pieces for my closet that will stand the test of time while looking modern and classic at the same time.

I fell in love with this sweet polka-dot blouse from Talbot’s and it is such an easy blouse to dress up or down.  During a recent trip to Winston-Salem, I jetted off after work to spend a great mother-daughter weekend away and this look was an easy transition from the office to travel.  While following trends are fun, I always try to make sure that I’m covered with a few basics in my wardrobe for each season.  What better way to do that than with black and white polka-dots?
