Office Style: Henna, Curls and Classics
The night before I had attended one of my favorite Mommy blogger networks, Mommys Links Glam Me event. It was a really fun time with a great group of girls. There were women empowerment speakers, fun vendors, and swag. At the party, I got my first henna tattoo and my hair curled. So when I got home, I put my hair in a loose bun, and secured it with a few bobby pins – a tip my regular stylist at BlowNY gave me.
The next day my hair and henna looked fab. Don’t ever underestimate the power of a professional with a curling iron;those curls lasted for days. So getting ready for work the next day was pretty easy. I think subconsciously the ornate orange design on my hand lead me to pick that bold orange pencil skirt that I paired with a simple white button down shirt.
You can never have too many crisp dry cleaned, fitted, collared shirts. They are a classic item that will always come in handy, and never go out of style. I recommend investing in a few.
- White Shirt: $69.50 J.Crew
- Pencil Skirt: $50 Coup De Coeur
- Gucci Sunglasses: Saks
- Nude Pumps: $69 Nine West
