Work Style: Neutral tone


Another day and a new work week…hello everyone! How was your weekend?

Like I mentioned in my previous post, I had a sweet tooth on Sunday. My Saturday morning was spent at work before heading straight to the gym for some stress reliever. I can’t say that I love the gym, but I do have some occasional enjoyable moments. I love Pilates and always look forward to my private classes on Tuesdays.


Back to my weekend recap, I got home on Saturday to find a huge box from Michael Kors and a bag from JCrew. I guess hubby was paying attention when I mentioned that I needed to start stocking up on fall items. I posted the picture of the huge boxes on Instagram. I will post what was in the box later today on my instagram. If you want to know what I got…join me on Instagram (@jadorefashion). 😉


To those that prefer not to wear something colorful or bright to work, my outfit today incorporates a neutral tone. Whether you add color or not, always remember to add your style to work outfits since we spend most of our week days at work.

With peplum trending, this is a good way to wear any peplum top to work. Remember to keep it classy and simple because the cinched ruffle details of peplums already make a statement.

Outfit: JCrew skirt (here & similar here), 
Zara peplum top (here & similar here)
 Zara bag (here)
 Christian Louboutin pumps (here)

Have a wonderful day!
