This is one of those looks where it's the details that make it.  I've essentially worn this same exact outfit hundreds of times.  Blazer, striped tee, dark jeans, black boots, even the Ray-Ban aviators.  But what keeps it from looking tired are tiny tweaks.  The earrings are a recent addition.  Statement earrings are back and I loved how these bright pink ones from BaubleBar can dress up or down, aren't too heavy, and don't get lost in my dark hair.  I continued the pink with this bright rose lipstick from Beautiful Rights; it's called Pantsuit Pink and 20% of the sale goes to your choice of six different charities including the ACLU.

Wardrobe Oxygen featuring Rebecca Minkoff MAB Cameraa Bag in BlackWhile I still love my leopard calfhair Mini MAC from Rebecca Minkoff, I desired a bag that is small (but not too small) and free of color, pattern, and metal hardware.  The MAB Camera Bag is a perfect addition to my wardrobe. While it's small, in there I can still fit my large wallet, sunglasses case, and a few other purse essentials like lipstick and my phone.  Speaking of phone, the second tassel on my purse is a phone charging cord! I featured it in a holiday gift guide and ended up buying one for me and one for my sister.  In my purse is a plug, so I'm ready to charge at any outlet or laptop!

    Sooooo….would the camera bag hold a real camera (aka the type Karl and I use) or is it more the shape?

    You look wonderful, as usual 🙂

      It’s the shape, the structured rectangle. The inside is lined in cotton with a couple small pockets. I don’t fully understand why this one is called a camera bag; I had an orange RM before called a camera bag and it reminded me of the bag my dad’s binoculars were stored in – far more structured with a wide opening. This is just a rectangular crossbody 🙂

        Thanks lady! I currently use a Tignanello backpack for my camera bag, that’s why I wondered 🙂

    Love that jacket on you! Normally I don’t like the look of double breasted jackets, but you look great

    For me the lipstick and earrings are actually clashing with each other a little (maybe it’s just the lighting?) but I LOVE the cut of the blazer.

      They’re not a perfect match, I kinda liked how they were similar (both cool pinks) but the earrings just brighter/bolder version. And this blazer is such a rule breaker, busty short people aren’t supposed to wear double breasted but I think it’s pretty flattering! Thanks Emily, I always look forward to your comments

    Oh, you look so business-like, yet super glam at the same time! These are the “What I Wore” posts that have great photos and, at the same time, give me ideas for a similar look. The double-breasted jacket and fitted, lean cut pants make for a sharp business look. I too am a huge fan of Rebecca Minkoff bags as I love the edgy vibe she adds to each design. Your pink earrings are super cute as well. You definitely exude a polished look ready for the work day.

    In the photos, your earrings and the red signal lights echo each other. 🙂 Nice photo-geek touch 🙂
    Also, you look great! This is exactly the kind of “business casual” I can not pull off well. 🙁 Blazers just don’t work for me, and I don’t wear heels. You do this so well.

      I bet that was Karl’s plan, I thought the other direction looked better but he liked this direction! Blazers are hit and miss for me, some just make me look like Spongebob!

        Not this one. It’s sharp.

      Grace, I was thinking the exact same thing when I saw the photos.

      I noticed that right away also. I thought, “That must be Karl’s touch. That it something a photographer would see and find hard to resist.”

    You really rocked the pant suit. It IS the details that makes it special.

    I’m so glad that statement earrings are back! I love that pop of pink.
