Weekend Open Thread

Something on your mind? Chat about it here.

There are a million sandals out there with a kind of schlubby look, or a glam, disco-diva look on the other end, but if you just want a slight heel to wear with shorts for a put-together weekend look, I think this is your perfect shoe. It’s flattering, it’s secure because of the multiple straps, it’s comfortable because it’s from Sofft, it has a lot of colorways, and it’s got 211 reviews at Zappos with a 4/5 rating. It looks a great shoe for everyday weekend style, and it comes in sizes 6-11 in medium and wide widths. It’s $89.95 at Zappos and is also available at Amazon and NordstromSofft Innis Sandal

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Silky V-Neck Rolled Sleeve Blouse

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

This top is getting a ton of great reviews at Express — it’s got 415 reviews and 4.5 stars, and it’s $39. It comes in blue, red, green, white, and black, and I like that it’s a simple, silky, drapey blouse, if that’s what you’re looking for. It’s machine washable, which is always nice, and it’s available in sizes XS-L. Silky V-Neck Rolled Sleeve Blouse

Here’s a plus-size option.

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Rozey Mixed Media Tee

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

We’ve featured Ted Baker t-shirts before, and they’re a great option for fancy t-shirts for beneath suits. This particular mosaic pattern shows up in a lot of different pieces, like a dress, workout gear, scarves, etc., so if you happen to like the design but not on a t-shirt, do check those out. And if you like the idea of fancy, silky statement tee but you’re not a fan of this particular pattern, Ted Baker has a million of them with other designs, and they’re all around $79-$95 with a size range of 00-14. This one is $95 at Nordstrom. Rozey Mixed Media Tee

This plus-size tee from Marks & Spencer has a pattern reminiscent of some Ted Baker florals. There’s also a nice option from Lafayette 148 New York … but it is $548.

Suit of the Week: Talbots

For busy working women, the suit is often the easiest outfit to throw on in the morning. In general, this feature is not about interview suits for women, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

This light blue suit from Talbots seems kind of perfect for summer. I like that it’s mostly cotton (lined with 100% polyester, which can go both ways), and I like the light blue/dark blue combination and the subtle pattern to the suit. I also like the contrast piping and the basic pencil skirt, and I think the round neck is flattering. You could wear these pieces together or by themselves, too. As always with Talbots, there’s a very nice range of sizes: misses 2-20, petites 0P-14P, and woman 12W-24W. The jacket (Biscay Jacket) is $189, and the skirt (Biscay Pencil Skirt) is $99.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Belted Scuba Sheath Dress

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

I like a lot of things about this really cute dress from Ellen Tracy: The neckline is nice and high while still a flattering V-neck, the very slight cap sleeves won’t be bulky under a cardigan or blazer but will still provide a little bit of coverage, and it has some lovely diamond-shaped seaming in the middle of the dress to suggest a hourglass type of shape. It also has a non-exposed back zipper, huzzah! We’re featuring the dress in black, but it also comes in cobalt (and as with most belts, if you don’t like the belt you can take it out and swap it with something that’s not shiny). It’s $108 at Nordstrom in sizes 2-16 (and runs large). Belted Scuba Sheath Dress

Here’s a plus-size option.

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Bracelet Sleeve Linen Jacket

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

As we discussed yesterday in our look at how to get Claire Underwood’s style, one of the keys is cropped jackets. We’ve also covered lightweight jackets for summer, and I kind of love this hybrid of the two. This linen-blend jacket from White House Black Market looks chic and lightweight and cool, and it’s machine washable. If you’re on the hunt for a cropped jacket, note that WHBM has a number of them right now, including another linen jacket in a moto style that’s available in cream and lavender. The pictured jacket is $140 and comes in petite and regular sizes 00-16. Bracelet Sleeve Linen Jacket

Here’s an open front linen jacket that’s available in plus sizes (and is on sale).
