Leopard x Laces

Leopard x Laces 3Happy Thursday, loves! Layering it up today with two of my favorite pieces from the wardrobe: this white leopard fit & flare dress and a tuxedo-style blazer vest!

With the weather sometimes falling toward the colder side during the weekdays, I like to know that there’ll be options for me to wear into the office that’s chic and easy to put together. I’m all about layering in the summer because usually, the office blasts the AC like there’s no tomorrow–so layering is my solution to an extra chilly work space!

Black and white will never fail, forever and always. It’s so easy and effortless to put together, plus you’re guaranteed to look chic in this color pairing.

This MAB tote was such an impulse buy for me…but I knew from the moment I saw it that it would have all the makings of the perfect office tote. The color, first of all, is not your typical office bag hue. I can’t seem to stop pairing this soft, pastel lavender with every other outfit I end up putting together!

I love that it has a hidden front pocket design, making sure I have instant access to the things most important to me–work ID, phone, keys, earphones, etc. The tote itself also has a ton of other compartments, which have been such a godsend when it comes to organizing all the stuff that I’m carrying to work!
