It’s time for a remix! A while back, I partnered up with Cindy + Johnny to style their chic Dylan blazer – if you missed the aforementioned post, click HERE. I loved the piece so much that I decided to re-style it today for Workwear Wednesday. I started with a solid, neutral canvas (aka my black pencil skirt). FYI, I bought it at Ann Taylor years ago, but you can find a skirt like this anywhere because it’s a wardrobe staple. Stores like Banana Republic Factory Outlet, Talbots, and H&M carry quality versions.
I paired my skirt with a cute but comfortable tee. I chose animal print because I wanted my look to stand out! Think classic with a trendy twist. I recently purchased this top at the Banana Republic Factory Outlet – it was really hard to resist because it was on sale for $7. Plus, I could already see myself wearing it a million different ways. I like to visualize different ensembles in my head when shopping – it helps me save money because I only let myself buy pieces I’ll wear for sure. If I can’t style an item at least 3 different ways, I won’t purchase it.

I threw on my C+J blazer on top to keep things professional. I know I say this all the time, but blazers really do add polish and sophistication. To top off my look, I accessorized with my Sparkles & Pop pendant necklace and carried my Bag Inc. leather tote. Here’s a close-up shot of my accessories.
