Polkadot Top: Great for 9-5 & Every Other Time 


Alice and Olivia top, Banana Republic pants, Givenchy pumps, Furla bag, Celine Audrey sunglasses.

I got this top (now on sale!) when I was between meetings in New York. I was having one of those times when I just felt super lackluster and desperately needed some retail therapy. I ducked into the Alice & Olivia shop across from Bryant Park and immediately fell for this blouse.




It has just the right amount of flounce to feel fun and feminine outside of the office paired with white jeans or a black miniskirt, but the clean black and white palette makes it great for the office. Paired with a suit jacket, it did just the trick for the rest of my meetings that day.


Finding pieces that work in and out of the office is key to building a useful wardrobe for me.
