Welcome to 9 to 5 Style! The third Monday of every month Carrie of A Stylish Fit, Fonda of Savvy Southern Chic and I will showcase a theme featuring our individual takes on a professional look. Our aim is to inspire and show professional style does not have to mean boring and without personality. We hope you enjoy our 9 to 5 Style!
Happy Monday! I hope all you moms out there enjoyed a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday. I spent my day moving from one special celebration to another. It was a sweet day all around. Hunter cooked me a special and delicious breakfast complete with beautiful fresh flowers on the table. I am so glad I taught the boys how to cook, along with so many other practical things, as they were growing up.
In this month’s edition of 9 to 5 Style Carrie selected the prompt of stripes. Y’all know I am all about some stripes, almost as much as I am polka dots, so I had some fun trying to plan my look. I could have gone in a wide variety of ways, including a striped top with a cardigan or blazer, and trousers, pinstriped pants with a dressy top, or a striped dress. Ultimately I decided to style one of my favorite pencil skirts, which has bold and bright stripes. I wanted to stick with the bold color scheme, so my top, necklace, and peep toe pumps in cobalt worked well. My white blazer and Kelly green bag finished it all off perfectly.
