Work Outfit: Coral and Black Dots

Work outfit with coral blazer

Bright blazer work outfit

Michele Watch + David Yurman Bracelets
Jacket: Zara (previously styled here, here, and here | Top: Banana Republic | Skirt: Ann Taylor | Shoes: MICHAEL Michael Kors | Bag: Reed Krakoff | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Necklace: Brian Gavin | Bracelets: David Yurman, Tiffany | Watch: Michele | Lips: NARS "Red Square"

The last time I posted about this polka-dot top from Banana Republic, I talked about how easy it was to style it casually, as I did in my previous post, or for work. After a reader encouraged me, I decided to show you how made this top appropriate for work as well. I think it'll be a great transition piece for layering into fall, so I'm looking forward to wearing it several more times before the cooler weather takes over.

Hope you're having a great week!

Seaside White (with My Favorite 7FAM Skinny Jeans)

Turquoise + white denim

Coach Penny Bag

Anthropologie Sloane Tank
Tank: Anthropologie (on sale!) | Jeans: 7 For All Mankind | Shoes: Ann Taylor | Bag: Coach | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Necklace: Theresa Mink (similar wishbone necklace here) | Bracelets: Ann Taylor, Vintage | Earrings: purchased in Turkey | Watch: Michael Kors | Lips: NARS "Dragon Girl"

Last beach post for me today! This was from a slightly cooler evening, so I pulled out my favorite white skinny jeans and added a jacket later for a stroll down the boardwalk. These jeans are definitely one of my most comfortable pairs, and they're a staple for my summer airplane trips. They're not too thick, and they're stretchy enough to be comfortable while seated for a long time without the dreaded sag when you stand back up again. I've also spilled all sorts of stuff on them and had them come clean with no trouble at all.

The tank I'm wearing is on sale at Anthropologie at the moment, and everything in their sale section is an additional 20% off at the moment with lots of petite sizes left. (The crochet dress I was wearing in my last post is eligible for the additional discount and is perfect for an end-of-summer beach party!)

Happy Friday!

Beachy Keen

Anthropologie Crochet Dress

Anthro Petites Ardere Cover-Up
Dress: Anthropologie (on sale!) | Shoes: J.Crew | Bag: Coach | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Necklaces: Brian Gavin, Theresa Mink (similar wishbone necklace here) | Bracelets: Ann Taylor, Vintage | Earrings: purchased in Turkey | Watch: Michael Kors | Lips: NARS "Dragon Girl"

I'm back at work today, but I still have pretty beach photos to share with you! I was definitely gazing longingly at the backdrop last night while simultaneously editing these and trying to prepare my cases for court this week.

The cover-up I'm wearing here was a surprising favorite from a recent Anthropologie order. It's 40% off its original price right now, and I was impressed with its quality and comfort. While it's perfect for the beach, I can see myself wearing it out and about, too. One thing to note: the lining stops just before the tassels at the bottom, and if you're much taller than me (4'11"), you might want to order it in regular instead of petite sizing if you want to wear it as a dress. On me, the lining is just long enough to avoid the possibility of a wardrobe malfunction.

Hope you have a great week!
