It's been dark and rainy in Boston the last few days, which is totally fine with me. I love the moodiness. Living in LA for over a decade I'd forgotten how cool this misty grey weather can be. It brings out the English lady in me and contemplate a trip to London. What do you think of the mood here - let me know in the comments below if you have a second. Anyway, this dress is my latest find in beautiful work wear under $100. It can also can be styled for everyday - throw on a thin turtleneck under it and pair it with some cute combat boots for Fall. I bought these in velvet rose but I wanted it in white - sizes are running out fast.

This dress is super flattering because of the A-line cut and the heavy fabric. It's perfect material for the office - drapes well and is crease resistant. The best part is the velvet sash which adds a touch of luxe to an otherwise simple dress. The sash makes it great for holiday season at work. Hard to believe but Thanksgiving is only a couple of months away but when those office holiday parties come around, this one's a classic option.

As we head into Fall, my hat collection is going to start growing again. One of my favorite hat styles is the bucket hat. It's so ladylike and makes everything look more chic. This felt bucket hat comes in black and the price is great at under $40. It does run slightly large on my head so if you have a small head and want a super snug fit then this might not fit you.


My Prada camera bag has been with me a few years and hasn't changed in design so it's still current luckily. The black is sold out but it comes in red and blue - I think the red is so cute!

Checked coats, or checked anything really, are all the rage this season. I love this menswear-inspired trend because anyone can wear it. It goes equally well with dresses, pants or skirts. This trend is a good one to invest in if you don't have this print already. It'll never go out of style. I like this one for an affordable option that's functional and in keeping with this season's trends.

Last but not least, if you're shopping for work dresses, this black-based floral print dress is now on sale for 40% off. Always good to have some layering options worked out before the cold weather hits. 

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend guys! xo
