For the last three or four years, my daily style involved sheath dresses, pencil skirts, silk blouses and blazers. And lots and lots of stilettos. Now I’m transitioning into a much more casual way of dressing and trying to find a balance between style, practicality, and business-owner-who-runs-around-like-a-chicken-with-her-head-cut-off chicness. {If you’re new around here, I left my corporate career in marketing and PR to join in the ownership of my husband’s parents’ florist business at the end of 2010}
My personal style leans toward the dressy, polished end of the spectrum, so figuring out this new dress code has been a challenge. I want to wear pretty floral skirts and cashmere cardis with dainty ballet flats every day, but I climb a lot of ladders and slip and slide on water droplets and fallen flower petals, so I have to compromise. 
I’m really not much of a t-shirt-and-jeans girl, but it’s becoming my daily uniform. I try to find tees with interesting details — like this one from one of my favorite local boutiques, m.marie — so I still feel “dressed up.” If it has lace, studs, sparkles, or appliques, I’m in. But not all at once, mmmkay?
Wearing: Tee, cami, jeggings, and bag all available at m.marie, Jessica Simpson platform pumps (Macy’s sale last season)

    >This is an issue I struggle with a lot, having left a "serious" job to go back to school (and assuming I'll return to one again when it's over!). I think you've done a great job styling these pieces, and I'm keen to see what you do in the future!

    >I've found as I get more and more into the fashion blogger world, my sense of what "casual" is changes. I sometimes think jeans can be dressy. I've never been too interested in shirts with embellishments before, but it seems like something I have to look into!

  • silvergirl 01/08/2011 at 1:59 am

    >You are doing a great job transitioning. I know it must be hard, especially if the other things are staring at you in the closet everyday!

  • Corie 01/08/2011 at 12:11 am

    >I love the cute casual outfit…I love the pics….they look like they could be in a magazine ad.

  • Hayley 01/07/2011 at 6:53 pm

  • Kristen 01/07/2011 at 5:28 am

    >This is a perfect casual chic look! I struggle with "dressing down" as well, since I'm in a corporate environment 5 days a week. I often find myself clueless with what to wear on the weekends (weird, I know). I've loved seeing your style progress, though. You're definitely figuring your new dress code out nicely. :)
