You know when you fall in love with a brand and get so comfortable with it that online shopping is a breeze and you know what will work or not? Well, it would be very fair to say that at least half of my work wardrobe is from Ann Taylor or Loft.
It is a brand that resonates with my style and easily reflects the professional image I try to put out there when I get into worker bee mode.
Between sharp stripes and playful florals, I usually have no problems walking in and finding some prints that catch my eye. So when Ann Taylor invited me to a sneak preview of the new line, I was soooooo bummed that I couldn’t make it. It was one of those days where there was not a free minute available and everything was super critical to do. All day I was sitting at my desk and in meetings just daydreaming about how much nicer it would have been to be sipping a cocktail while previewing the new line. Next time!
While I saw in the middle of the daydream I was thinking of the things that I love about Ann Taylor. How the colors are the most beautiful shade and often fall into the more earthy, natural shade. That is so me. Bright neon and obnoxious colors rarely make it onto my clothing rack.
Finally after a few weeks of anxiously waiting, I got the email that it was online and grabbed my tea.
I love it. I knew I would. And just like I thought, there was a blend of beautiful stripes and floral patterns in perfectly compatible colors for my personal palette. Home run!
For me pencil skirts and fit and flare dresses are such easy pieces to have for a work friendly clothing collection. Add a few blouses and shells and accessories and getting ready in the morning is easy!
Here is a slide show of my favorites from the new collection:
