Shift dresses are the perfect dress to wear while shooting weddings.  Dress pants would be acceptable to wear for the job that I do, but let me tell you, when I’m in a room full of beautiful weddings guests I feel a lot more confident in a hot dress!  A high neckline and a fitted, knee length skirt allow me to to my job just as well as pants do.  Lately I’ve been drooling over these dresses, in particular numbers eight, nine and ten.  Perfect for a working wedding day, or for a day at the office!


leather blazer

I love anything with leather trim and, lucky for me, it’s been super on trend this winter.  Both of these blazers fit the bill.

The left one is Maje from NET-A-PORTER and comes in at $515.  The right is from Jennifer Lopez’s line at Kohl’s and was $84 but is now on sale for $42.

In other news, Jennifer Lopez  wore this sweater from her Kohl’s line when she appeared on Ellen last week.  I love when celebrities(or anyone, really) mix high and low pieces to create an awesome look.  You can build a great closet at any price point!

Piperlime Peplum Top

Lately I’ve been looking to add printed pieces to my closet — so many of my tops and even dresses are solids!  This Pim + Larkin top from Piperlime fits the bill.  A happy, pretty print, short sleeved for easy layering and a peplum shape to boot.  I’ll definitely be watching for this baby to go on sale!

Where: to the studio.

Why:  This sweater was a new piece I got during the after-Christmas sales.  It was a little more expensive ($25 at 50% off) than I was looking for, normally when I shop those sales I’m looking for pieces $20 and under, but it’s classic enough to last a long time in my closet.  I love how the bow wraps all the way around like a present would!

I got these pumps from Nine West last year for $30 on a trip to Chicago and I love them for a low, comfortable heel.  They proved to be very effective while shooting weddings this year, allowing me to move as quickly and easily as I can in flats but helping me feel dressed up enough to be attending a wedding.
