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.

One of the things I hope viewers get out of my blog is finding inspiration with affordable items. There are a ton of really successful bloggers out there (many in which I follow), but I want the tone of my blog to feel like real life. I tend to spend more of my money in items like shoes or purses instead of buying a $200 shirt, because it gives me more versatility in my wardrobe.
 
The other thing I really try to incorporate is DIY projects. There are so many easy tutorials on the internet that it's almost silly to buy every single item yourself. Plus, when a DIY turns out great - you have the pleasure of saying when complimented, "Thanks, I made it myself!" It's definitely a confidence booster.  Today I decided to go with something super simple for the office, a cowl neck sweater looks great with a circle skirt. I absolutely love color blocking and anything monochromatic. It really allows anyone short or petite to appear taller.
