Monday’s TPS Report – Nanette Lepore Jacket

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We begin the week in splurge mode, with our most expensive suggestions, and wind our way to Friday, where a less expensive item of clothing might be just what you need to make it to the weekend.

nanette lepore jacket nordstromHappy Monday! We’d splurge on this Nanette Lepore “Come Together” jacket for a nice summer basic to keep at the office; we actually prefer the indigo to the white. The wide portrait collar is distinct but still professional, and the pockets are just big enough to hold a building pass and a Blackberry. We’d add brooches to the portrait collar but leave our clavicle exposed and free of necklaces. Available at Nordstrom.

Friday’s TPS Report – Rosette Tee from Gap

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We begin the week in splurge mode, with our most expensive suggestions, and wind our way to Friday, where a less expensive item of clothing might be just what you need to make it to the weekend.

Gap Rosette TeeToday’s find is a great white tee with just a few embellishments — we’re always looking for something like this to wear under a navy or brown suit. (While you’re there, we also recommend this clean pencil skirt (on sale!) or this Dobby top— the top is a bit casual for the office, but we’d love to wear it with shorts or jeans on the weekend.)

(Also: we were interested to note that Gap, Banana Republic, Piperlime, and Old Navy have *finally* consolidated their shopping bags and shipping process — woo hoo!)

Thursday’s TPS Report – Anthropologie Fanning Flames Cardigan

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We begin the week in splurge mode, with our most expensive suggestions, and wind our way to Friday, where a less expensive item of clothing might be just what you need to make it to the weekend.

Anthropologie Fanning Flames CardiganWe don’t usually go for beige and orange — they’re just really not our colors — but something about this Anthropologie sweater strikes our fancy today. The details are what make this: the buttons are beautiful; according to the description they’re “dried blooms encased in crystal clear buttons.” (Close-up below. Looks like the orange embroidery is slightly raised, too, which we like.) The flutter sleeves are just right for work — not too girly but still detailed. The cotton is organic, too. We’d wear it with a dark brown pencil skirt, perhaps.

We think this wool sweater jacket from BCBG is the perfect thing to keep in the office and pull over pretty much any outfit. Available in navy and black at BCBG. (Obviously, don’t wear the sunglasses while inside.)
