I am enjoying this early spring we're having in Denver and trying to incorporate some springy pieces into my work wardrobe. This pretty blush skirt was a recent sale find from J.Crew, but in a classic style of theirs that fits me well without alterations. I like my work skirts to have a little breathing room in them so I can tuck in thicker blouses or shells and not have anything look too tight or lumpy.

As I mentioned in my last work outfit post, I like the way shorter jacket sleeves work on my petite frame. The look is more proportional and feminine, and it leaves my wrists exposed to display a watch and a bracelet or two. I am a huge fan of J.Crew's old 'Sidney' blazer, which I'm wearing here, but sadly, it was discontinued after the AW 2014 season. I've bought two on eBay since then, but I wish I'd had the foresight to get one in every color when I saw them on deep discount. The new 'Campbell' blazer is the closest jacket in their current line, but when I tried it, the shoulder area didn't sit properly on me, and my tailor thought altering it would be too risky and expensive. I'm doing my best to take good care of my Sidney blazers so they last a long, long time, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that J.Crew's next slim-cut blazer will be a better fit for me.

Hope you had a great weekend--happy Monday!

x, Tam
