Coffee Break: Centella Dress Pump

Oooh: hello there, pretty pump. I love the taupey brown color here — but the corset-lacing and tassels are also gorgeous. Amazon has the shoe in five colors and sizes from $37-$98; 6PM has it in three colors for $49-$59 (including that taupey brown), and Nordstrom does have it also, but only in red, for 45% off ($49).  Jessica Simpson Women’s Centella Dress Pump

Coffee Break: Pyramid Spike Y-Necklace

If you’re looking for a long but delicate necklace to wear with tops, do consider this pretty “spike” necklace — not only is it only $38, but it’s got a number of positive reviews about how easy it is to wear at Nordstrom, and at BaubleBar they’ve declared it a “BB Essental.” Sadly, it only comes in goldtone (sad trombone from the chick who’s still a little obsessed with rose gold).

Weekend Open Thread

Something on your mind? Chat about it here. 

It feels like it should be spring, and it should be warm, and so if you’re a bit bummed that you can’t wear slinkier tops for going out this weekend, and if you don’t even want to think about cold shoulder tops, this kind of cutout seems like a fun, edgy way too do a casual look. I wouldn’t wear the cutout to the office, but I would possibly wear the blouse underneath a blazer or cardigan and then when I’m heading out Friday or Saturday — desk-to-dinner kind of dressing — take off the top layer. It’s only $69 and comes in sizes XXS-XL. Cutout Surplice Top

Here are two similar options in plus sizes.

Psst: Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Be safe out there tonight if you’re planning on drinking a lot (and of course, go for extra moisturizer afterwards, like readers recommended on Tuesday’s discussion of the best makeup products to fake a good night’s sleep.)

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Flutter Cuff Tee

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I think this top from Loft has a cute and interesting take on the bell sleeve / flutter sleeve trend that’s everywhere right now. It’s highly rated and comes in sizes XXS-XL in regular and petite, in black and maraschino cherry. (Loft has lots of nice printed tees if you like them for casual days or weekends; this one is one of my favorites.) This one is $39.50 at Loft. Flutter Cuff Tee

Here’s a plus-size option.

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Open Front Jacket

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I believe this Halogen stretch crepe jacket has been around for a few years now, and it always gets good reviews and comes back in different colors. It’s available in regular sizes XS-XL and petite sizes XXS-XL, and it comes in several colors including black, ivory cloud, ivory texture (that one is cotton/linen), navy peacoat, and the pictured pink. Note that it’s marked dry clean but not “dry clean only.” The jacket is $99 at Nordstrom. Open Front Jacket

Two plus-size options are here and here.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Martha Dress

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. 

This Boden dress looks like a great ladylike sheath dress — sort of Audrey Hepburn–inspired, with a wide roll collar. It’s fully lined with a hidden back zip. It comes in solid black and navy, but I really like this green pattern. I think it would be a fun pop of color under a black blazer or black cardigan, or navy or white; I think it would go well with a lot of neutrals (and because I do enjoy a purple pump, I’d probably wear it with that as well). The choices also include a really nice yellow/blue/black/white version that’s a fun pattern. Sizes are 2–18, regular, petite, and long, and the dress is $120-$150 at Boden, depending on color/print. Martha Dress

Here’s an option that’s available in plus sizes.
