Workplace Wednesday:: Summertime Crochet
It’s summertime and that means vacations. Sometimes it’s hard to think about vacation (or maybe it’s too easy) when you are in the middle of your work week but there’s no reason you can’t bring a little beach look to your work wardrobe. What screams vaction-wear more than crochet & macramé? We saw a lot of great looks on the S/S 2011 runways from Julien MacDonald, Dior, Ferragamo, Emilio Pucci and Gucci among others. Obviously some of the looks on the runways are more beach appropriate but this look can easily be tailored so you can wear it to work.
This DVF crochet dress is a perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. It’s one that will easily translate from the office to the beach by pairing with a bikini and a great pair of sandals. Of course the key to wearing any crochet piece to the office is to make sure there is a lining inside! No peepshows are ever appropriate for the office, ever! In keeping with the vacation theme we paired black Charlotte Olympia espadrille wedges. We have already talked about espadrilles being a summer must. What work ensemble is complete without a great bag to carry all of your essentials? This Meredith Wendell python trimmed raffa tote has a roomy interior and screams summer. The pop of color is great for this overall minimalistic look and it also has a detachable strap that you can wear on your shoulder or cross-body. A truly multi-functioning bag. Add some fun color bracelets and a chain-link watch and you are ready to pretend you are on vacation at work.
Happy Wednesday my dears!
