Loving Lately: Polka dots

Both From What I Wore

I love what both of these gals are doing- keep maintain a certain color palate to keep prints as professional as possible. Black, white and pink is a classic, and I love her pink polka dot shirt! I found similar ones here and here, adding this under the traditional 9 to 5 blazer and and adding a bright belt hits just the right note.

Loving Lately: Neons for 9 to 5

If you are anything like me, you love this look, but immediately think "That's just not my life!" I have "business casual" job, I'm no one's thin, toned and tanned size 2 and frankly, it's just not me. So, enough about that-- let's work neons into normal life!

These would all be amazing and plenty professional with a tan or khaki suit, or a navy shift dress, like this one:
Combine this anorak and dress with neon shoes and accessories, amazing!

Wear to Work: Floral Pants

Most trends these days seem completely unwearable for those of us (most of us?) who live in the world of dress codes and employee handbooks.

Well, huge floral prints can be totally work appropriate. I mean, she even has closed toed shoes on. It doesn't get much more office appropriate. 
Here's the equation: 
Floral pants/skirt + 
somewhat conservative shoes + 
solid shirt + 
blazer to pull it all together+
one standout accessory
