Check Mate

Shirt: Madewell (on sale for $40 in store)
Blazer: Theory, similar here (use code BRSUMMER25 for 25% off)
Skirt: Zara
Heels: Zara
Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Sunnies: Miu Miu
Necklace: Banana Republic 
As you can tell, I traded in my yellow blazer for a gray version.  Although I bought this blazer as part of a suit (from the Theory outlet at 70% off!), I rarely wear it as a suit. I wear blazers all the time since they always add the right balance of chic, crisp, casual, and cool to any outfit.  The wool-blend fabric and gray color of this blazer takes borderline casual outfits and make them appropriate it for work. And so, I can happily wear my short lace skirt to work, without worrying about what the boss is going to say!
I hope you’re all having a fabulous Wednesday. As always, thanks for visiting. XO!

    I've never worn lace to work…this is probably because i have only 1 lace skirt in black with a nude lining.. Love this look and when I hit the theory outlet I never find any good deals.
