Ever since I saw the home office of Tiffany Richey featured on La Dolce Vita it’s remained in the back of my mind.  It crosses off all of the requirements for my ideal home office: neutral enough to not be distracting, warm and inviting textures, sleek enough to be taken seriously, and with small details that count.  And until I can have my dream space, I’ll totally settle for dressing the part: with a simple play of materials and animal prints add ons.  Total recipe for success if you ask me.

Ever since seeing the gilded bash hosted by Rue Magazine for their 2nd anniversary I’ve been craving a little piece of the prize for myself (what else calls to mind winning quite like this carat-ed color?).  While the baroque trend is big for this fall, I like my golds when paired with things a bit simpler.  Picture the above flashy oxfords with a simple t-shirt dress, or those amazing jacquard shorts with just a basic chambray shirt?  Take it from Kate Spade (and the necklace shown above), you’ll be as good as gold.

I’ve been fortunate enough to always work in very creative/casual environments, but as I prepare for my first day of work today I hope to make a conscious effort to keep my work day uniform distinctly different from my weekend looks.  That means dressing up more relaxed basics with exciting accessories and balancing tougher pieces (see here leather motorcycle jacket) with classically feminine pieces (full or pencil skirts will do).  Business suit be damned.
