Dress for Success
The LBD on our Yes list for the office is this suit dress from Ted Baker! On busy, meeting-filled days, I reach for an outfit that looks polished and won’t distract from what I have to say. This tailored black dress is a go-to ensemble for such days because it’s interesting without being too loud. With sleek neoprene and ribbed panel sections to add a mix of textures, this versatile dress goes from desk to dinner with elegant ease. The panther pendant and tassel bracelet combo adds just the right touch of edge to what are otherwise usually very classic work ensembles.

Because they're created from the same fabrics, and designed in the same theme- they pair together beautifully allowing you to be decisive for your first task of the day!

When Opportunity Knocks
Be prepared to open the door to opportunity with these fabulous gold door knocker earrings! Encrusted in green and white crystals, they're uniquely elegant and still powerfully bold! Who knows what kind of opportunities will come your way today?
As the work week comes to a close, many business support the "casual Friday" dress code. If your office is one that participates, you've probably seen a very wide range of wardrobe choices on display. One of my biggest pet peeves is the boundary pushing when it comes to this topic. Don't let jeans day compromise your professional image! Keep it classy and pair nice denim with a fine tailored blazer for a dressed down, yet still very chic style!
Roll up Your Sleeves
We love the little surprises Ted Baker is always coming up with, and this blazer is no exception! Flip the cuff on this jacket for a nice burst of spring greenery! Also, rolling your sleeves up gives the impression you're working- even when you're not ;) #tipoftheday
Quality is the difference here- thoughtful details like a satin lining and contrast stitching make you feel confident and poised every time you slip into this blazer!
Right now I’m all about anything floral. It’s probably because I'm so over winter and ready for the arrival of spring and spring means flowers. While it's too early for true spring dresses, this floral Ted Baker midi is the perfect compromise. It has an overall modest theme, with the high neckline and sleeves, but the slit up the skirt changes the whole feel! It went from Betty White to Victoria Beckham!
Does it get any more gorgeous than rose gold and mother of pearl!? Not for me. I never knew how beautiful this combination could be, until these earrings came in. Long earrings can feel inappropriate at work sometimes, but studs are often too subtle or casual. We found the answer with these sparkling clovers! With enough glitz to stand out, but still settled perfectly on just the lobe, these sweet studs are the answer to your accessory dilemma.
Let's talk about why pantsuits are so great for business women. First of all it’s perfect for all seasons and so very versatile, and in winter it offers the great balance of keeping you warm and looking polished. You can layer up to 100 pieces underneath that blazer if you want to, and add a couple more over it as well. Higher waisted pants are mandatory, to avoid that kistch 2000s low rinse pant cut and assists with a perfect tuck every time! These not only look and feel amazing, with the neoprene finish and slim leg- but they feature a side zipper to eliminate extra bulk in the belly area. We don't need to add the illusion of extra pounds, not there- not anywhere! On top-the Ted Baker floral tee reminds us that spring is on it's way with it's bold blooms and lightweight drape. I use the word "tee" loosely. This top is almost a blouse- but has an amazing range of wearability!
I like to play up on the dark tones when I accessorize outfits that have a lot of black- and that means gunmetal! It's the modern metal.
Taking this tee down a notch from "blouse" it's beautiful as a dressy casual option with white denim! The colors seem to pop a little brighter with this fresh foundation to create a crisp and happy ensemble.
She's Got the Power!
Many women find suits to be too constricting and stuffy. But let this tip be your negotiating tool when comfort and sophistication are competing! Layer a well fitting blazer over a solid knit dress to get yourself out of the bind! No one needs to know how great you feel in your version of a "power suit"

A versatile one piece outfit is a travel essential! Avoid over packing by only bringing what you need and if you plan out what to wear you can skip a lot of unnecessary baggage!
