Workweek Wishlist: Finishing Pieces

From top left: Gap turtleneck, sleek enough to go under summer's favorite dresses and tops; a little sparkle to brighten covered-up looks; J Crew classic white shirt (I plan on fully buttoning!); while I'm layering, I'd love to layer in this beautiful necklace to go along with the earrings!

The real art to dressing, in my opinion, is being able to take items that you already have and make them look fresh again. It’s an art that I’ve often not done well at all! But for these upcoming months, I was inspired by this great article (thank you for sharing, Jenn!!) featuring MM Lafleur’s CEO, Sarah Lafleur, describing her tips for dressing professionally in cold weather. Planning for an upcoming trip to the East Coast, I realized that I could use her tips to make some of my favorite items feel new again and winter-weather friendly by adding just a few finishing pieces. Stay tuned for outfits coming in the next few weeks! And happy layering! : )

Layering a white button down under the usual sweater makes it a totally different outfit. Here: J Crew sweater, gap shirt, J Crew pants, gifted Prada heels, Bauble Bar necklace, similar here.
