If you run into me during the week, it's likely I'll be dressed the way I am in these photos, carrying my trusty Longchamp Le Pliage laden with files, a laptop, a spare pair of shoes, and all my other daily necessities. Although I'm still hunting for the perfect work bag, this one has been incredibly practical and versatile. When I'm carrying a bunch of heavy things, it's hard to add a weighty leather purse with lots of hardware to the load. My Longchamp bag is durable, light, washable, and cute enough to tote around everywhere.
Although most of my workdays require me to wear a suit, I try to find ways to make the typical neutral-colored suit a little more palatable for color-loving me. I often go for shells that are colorful or that have interesting details to add some interest, and I also like to pile on the "flair" with interesting (but tasteful!) jewelry.
