Today I’m dressed to impress for the office. I’ve got on a dark purple V-neck blouse with an integral and feminine bow. I got this from one of my favorite stores, Ann Taylor. They have some of the better Petite selections in my area. What at first glance looks like a polka dot pattern is actually a heart shaped design for a ladylike feel.
A good tip from this ensemble is to go with a mid-length on the ivory colored skirt which also features a high waist. This combination helps to really enhance my figure and doesn’t emphasize my lack of height. With the large bow filling up the front of my blouse and the polka heart pattern everywhere, I don’t really need much for accessories. A thin chain, small pendant or nothing at all is equally appropriate as you don’t want to overwhelm the openness of the V-neck.
Some walkable medium heels keep you comfortable for that big presentation to the board or your next business trip. But just because the business of fashion is very serious doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun! So of course I added my mandatory splash of color with a bright yellow clutch purse for a nice contrast to my purple pea coat and matching felt hat.
