Top: Forever21 (love this one and this one). Pants: Nicole Miller. Shoes: Vintage (similar here). Tote: Ted Baker.
 
I love to wear sparkly things to work. The key is to add structured, classic accessories and tone down the jewelry. Sequins are such a great day to night item to wear and with a looser fitting tunic like this one, it's comfortable while maintaining a polished look.
 
I don't wear pants to work often, since I am constantly switching from flats to heels - but I love a pair of classic black pants. For work, you always want them to fit a little looser than you might wear for jeans or even a Friday night out. Check out more of my day to night sequin looks here, here and here.

Shirt: Vintage (also love this one). Skirt: DIY (great tutorial for a similar one here). Shoes: Charles by Charles David. Purse: Buddha Bags. Sunnies: Just Cavalli.

Have you ever had a DIY project that just turned out perfect?  This skirt was one of those projects for me. I've worn it in several occasions, including here. But, this monochromatic look really does it justice. In my effort this year to wear more neutrals, the texture is what sets this outfit apart. The metallic sheen on the top with the soft tulle makes this such a glamorous outfit. I actually made this skirt by cutting off the top of a dress and turning down the waste band, however A Pair and a Spare has a great tutorial listed in the links above. She has some of the best DIY tutorials on the web with excellent directions and clean looking pictures. I also highly recommend her book!
