"You Better WORK It Honeey" is a section of M & H that will be dedicated to showcasing work style and fashion. As my honeeyz know or now know (I've said it a trillion times and will say it a trillion more times on this blog), I love the art of fashion and using individual style as a way of expression and just living (what the heck is life without shoes, bags and dresses?? I don't even want to know!)! Obviously, day to day style usually differs from that of work or professional style and since I'm a grown up now (can ya believe I got the nerve to be 33???) and I'm a "professional" (allegedly...lol) and spend the majority of my waking hours at work, I thought it would be a great idea to see how I (and the rest of you honeeyz) put it down in the professional realm! Although I'm an attorney and that can be one of the most uptight professions (stuffy suits, black, grey and navy only attire, with measly 3inch pumps....I threw up a little in my mouth writing that out), I lucked up and secured an attorney position with the Federal Government. Rumor proved true that the Feds is one of the most relaxed working environment, well some agencies are and the agency I work for happens to be one. Yaaay me! Anyway, there is obviously a time and place for everything and you do need to dress according to the environment, occasions and company but you don't have to be boring and sacrifice all sense of style and expression; especially, when you work somewhere that affords you the luxury of a flexible dress code. My goal with this section is to get you guys to share with M&H your work style so we can post it here and exchange ideas of how to shake up the corporate world!

Dresses for work are my favorite! They are easy to hang (no ironing), put on and accessorize. Provided your dress selection isn't too tight and/or too short, you can never go wrong in terms of being professional and presentable for work. You can individualize and customize your dress by adding a blazer or cardigan (key wardrobe pieces for work and play); skinny or thick belt; jewelry and hair, slit or whatever else you feel like adding to your dress. My favorite thing about this outfit is it is made up of a bunch of inexpensive pieces that I've had for years. That's what you call STYLE... you can't buy it and there is no brand name or price tag that can create it... ENJOY!
|The belt is a faux suede in bright orange. I picked it up for $2.50 from Forever21!! Yes two dollars and fifty cent! Peep my manicure and how nicely it goes with my color palette and overall look! LOL. Told you my nails are the best!|
|My earrings just add a little fun and youthfulness to the outfit. I pulled my hair back this morning into a rough bun (misty rain is an enemy of my hair). I find big earrings are always good when you're hair is simple and off your face.|
