Having a diverse wardrobe that will take you from 9am-5pm and 5pm-9pm is how you make the most out of your closet and make sure you are ready to go from your desk to rooftop deck for drinks with your friends.

I paired my favorite  Cape Blazer from Just Fab, Off the Shoulder Ruffle Short Sleeve Bodysuit from Boohoo, and the Kady Fit Pants from Eloquii in Mustard Yellow with a Leopard Belt from Fashion to Figure, find one similar here at Old Navy, Skinny Calf-Hair Belt for Women.  I am wearing a Black Block Heel Sandal from New York and Company, find a pair similar here at Macy’s, Bella Two-Piece Block Heel Sandal, they are perfect for Work and the Weekend. My earrings are from H & M, find similar ones on Aldo, Midnight Black Fringe Earrings. I love my prescription eyeglasses from Warby Parker, Kimball Eyeglasses in Marzipan Tortoise, they are a great way to show off your style!

The Off the Shoulder Bodysuit can’t be worn on its own to work, but with the Cape Blazer, you are covered for work and ready for wine after 5! It’s on sale for $12!

When shopping, think about how many times will I wear this item? Can I wear this to Work? Church? Or only on the weekend? What will be my maximum return for investing in this item? For example, camouflage bomber jackets are on trend but, can you wear that to work? NOPE! Bottom line, don’t buy or purchase the cheapest (but not cheesy) version possible.

You can buy Fast Fashion trends, but spend the bare minimum and INVEST in pieces that WILL work for you in more than one arena.

What should you be shopping for now? FALL! Believe it or not, Summer is OVER! Unless you are going on a vacation and you need a few pieces to pack, fine. If not, don’t fall prey to the summer clearance rack!

What I’m looking for now? Cute wide calf boots (I have to start early they are hard to come by), updating my classic pumps for work, and blazers/jackets. Look for pieces that you can wear now, and with adding layers you can wear for the fall. I will be sharing all my new pieces that I pick up!
