Modern Workwear

If you follow me on Snapchat (ppfgirl), you may have seen me share that this week was one of the best I've experienced in a long time.  Somehow I magically seemed to achieve the perfect work/life balance in the last 5 days and, as a result, I've felt so invigorated.  I attribute much of this to actually dressing for work each day (in all honesty, it's not something I do every single week).  I've found that because I work from home, putting on office-appropriate attire in the morning helps me feel more motivated and focused to get tasks done.  There's so much to be said for how "dressing the part" affects our attitude.  This comfortable pairing is my take on polished modern workwear - the neutral trench vest, printed scarf & suede bag help add interest & break up the nearly monochrome look.  P.S. Right now, Ann Taylor is having their friends & family sale where you can get 40% off everything - I bought this suede bag & these fringe heels, but I'm also eyeing this pretty sweater & these coated jeans.

What I'm wearing:
H&M sleeveless trench (similar under $25, under $50 or under $60), Express knit top (similar), 
Forever 21 trousers (similar here, here or here), Vince Camuto Empa flats, H&M scarf
Ann Taylor bag (40% off w/ code FRIENDS40), c/o ShopLately cuff (similar), Forever 21 earrings
Rings: c/o Jeweliq (similar) & c/o ShopLately (similar)
