OK, so remember how I said I wished I didn’t live in LA 90-degree heat so that I could take a cue from Brittany Snow and rock a layered look?
Well lucky for me, I work in the South Bay area, which is a good several degrees cooler, not to mention the fact that our AC is always on blast and I’m usually freezing.
All the reason I needed to try out my own version of Ms. Snow’s chic ensemble for work.
Simple pieces — black trousers, chambray button up, striped sweater, black leather-strap watch, and black pumps — when thrown all together, makes for a very polished, sophisticated, yet appropriately down-played office look.
Something comparable to the magenta metallic pumps wasn’t entirely appropriate for my work, unfortunately. But if I had I could get away with it, I’d totally opt for the metallic blue beauties pictured below.
