In case you’ve been wondering about my Instagram teaser, the item I purchased was this Kate Spade watch–the Gramercy Grand. I’m absolutely in love with it and have been wearing it everywhere. The big, bold face has a firmly businessy feel, but the bright pink second hand and spade add a little fun. I even got it on sale thanks to Nordstrom and some eagle-eyed discount shopping. What do you think of it?

A leopard scarf is an excellent way to add a little spice to any outfit. Worn alone, this warp dress is still beautiful but perhaps a touch plain. Adding a fun scarf, a bold piece of jewelry, and some not-quite-vanilla black flats makes this the perfect work outfit. I’ve been mixing and matching this dress in similar ways all spring by adding various colored scarfs, snakeskin flats, smoking slippers, and the like. A wrap dress will always be a classic, and the right accessories can transition it through the seasons.

My only beef with this dress is that it tends to wrinkle–a surprise for a jersey dress. I’ve been a bit disappointed with Banana Republic’s quality on multiple occasions, so I might start looking elsewhere for work staples that are built to last, and built for ease. Who has time to iron a whole wrap dress? Certainly not me; not this week. And speaking of which, it’s back to the grind. Happy Wednesday!
