Chambray Shirt and Tulip Skirt

A tulip skirt has its advantages and disadvantages. One advantage is that it hugs you nicely like a pencil skirt, but gives a much more casual vibe. One disadvantage is that a not-so-flat belly would enhance the tulip shape a little too much. 

None mattered to me when the weather warmed up to a summer-like degree - I grabbed this as its one of my shortest skirts, wore it for a walk around the neighborhood, pretending its June.

Colored Pants and Color Blocking

Many things are reserved for weekends: laundry, grocery shopping, printed pants, and color blocking. These pants are so fun and cute, but as usual, I got stuck deciding which shoes to pair them with. 

I then saw the lining of this jacket - specifically, the small patches of yellow nudged in so happily by all these other colors. So color blocking with yellow flats I went.

Typical Work Outfit

Peplum Blazer: Zara | Shirt: Costa Blanca | Pants: Joe Fresh | Belt: Tommy Hilfiger  Shoes: Payless

This is another typical work outfit: comfortable, simple, and easy.  Being comfortable in my work clothes is so important to me, I want to be able to concentrate on my work, which means any time I spend fidgeting or feeling uncomfortable is time I see being wasted.

White Blazer and Maxi Dress

I can't think of an easier outfit than a maxi dress and a blazer or jacket. You don't even need to pick out any particular shoe, because they'll be hidden most of the time anyway!

Trench Coat and Stripes

Trench coats are hard to buy for me, mainly because I can never find one that fits. I was actually admiring a much smaller version of this coat when I passed by Zara's Girl department last year, and just for fun, grabbed this size to try. And here we are.

Trench coat and stripes go so well together, throw in some color, and you end up with an easy and still put-together outfit.

Cozy Spring Layers

Cardigan / Shirt / Belt / Cords: RW&Co 
Boots: Steve Madden

When RW&Co announced a contest where you have to dress in RW&Co from head to toe, I did a quick recap of my RW articles in my head, and realized that I've gotten quite a few! This is no surprise since RW&Co has been one of my go-to favorite stores in the last several years.

This outfit is one of the easiest to assemble, and yet it's perfect for the chilly early Spring days we're experiencing these days.
