Coffee Break: Grommet Flat

grommet flat AGL nordstrom saleOver the weekend I did a roundup of the big Nordstrom Summer Sale (ends 9/10!) — but it’s worth noting again that it’s not all shorts, sandals, and sundresses. Case in point: these gorgeous, deep red grommet flats from reader favorite brand AGL. I’m not usually a grommet girl, but the color mixed with the silvery grommets looks great. I suppose you could wear them in late summer with light blues, pinks, oranges, and beiges, but in general they just feel like more of a fall shoe to me. They were $340, but they’re now marked down to $149 (in four colors, sizes 4-13). Grommet Flat

Thursday’s Workwear Report: The Relaxed Silk Shirt

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

This relaxed silk shirt from Everlane comes in seven colors and has long been on everyone’s radar as a great option for work. I don’t think we’ve ever done a Workwear Report on it, although we’ve featured the sleeveless version and the rounded collar version (and we definitely included it in our roundup of the best silk blouses for work). It’s $88 and gets rave reviews, and it’s available in sizes 00-12. Readers, what’s your favorite silk shirt? Do tell! The Relaxed Silk Shirt

Here’s a plus-size option.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Seam Detail Stretch Sheath Dress

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

Readers were talking about wanting to see a plus-size pick one day every week, and I think it’s a great idea because we don’t always get our plus-size newsletter out as often as we should. We’ll try it for a couple weeks and see how it goes! To start off, this dress from Adrianna Papell is really lovely. I love that it has sleeves, and I love the jewel neck and interesting slash at the top (and you can still wear a bra with it, which is always the key to something being work-appropriate). It’s only $140, which is nice, and it’s available in sizes 14W-20W (runs large). Seam Detail Stretch Sheath Dress

Coffee Break: Asher Drop Earrings

kendra scott tiny earringsOooh: I’ve always liked the stones and settings for Kendra Scott, but the long pendants and bigger earrings aren’t always my cup of tea. These smaller earrings are gorgeous, and I now want like three colors — these red/gold ones are the top of my list, probably followed by ivory/gold and grey/rose gold. They’re $65 at Nordstrom. Asher Drop Earrings

Frugal Friday: Knotted Elbow Sleeve Top

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

I always like this kind of top, and Ann Taylor always provides — it’s the interesting basic, the slightly elevated t-shirt, an easy to wear and easy to care for addition to your working wardrobe. I like the knot front detail and the elbow sleeves, the fact that it’s machine washable, and the $49 price. (There is a sale going on right now wherein “a select few” full price pieces are 50% off; alas, this is not among them.) It’s available in three colors, online exclusively. Knotted Elbow-Sleeve Top

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Bishop Sleeve Top

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

banana republic bishop sleeve blouse for workWe featured a Tibi blouse like this a while ago, so I took note when I saw a much more affordable version at Banana Republic — and it’s among Olivia Palermo’s picks, which are usually pretty good. Not only is this one about a fifth of the price, though, today you can take 40% off everything, bringing it down to even less. It’s available in white, olive, and navy for $68 full price. Cinched-Waist Bishop-Sleeve Top

Psst: just realized there are major new markdowns at Brooks Brothers, including this gorgeous black cotton/silk cardigan for $59.
