Work Week Wardrobe


Hello all! Hope you’ve had a wonderful holiday and are off to a productive week. After a good deal of baking and catching up on sleep, I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things myself — Cocoa & Lace being top on my list.

This week’s office-approved look is simple and sharp. Pair a bright blouse with a classic pencil skirt, some killer heels, and a great bag and you’ll power your way to the weekend in no time. 🙂

Work Week Wardrobe: A Pop of Pink

October is a special time of year for so many reasons, but perhaps most significant is its designation as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To show your support for all those touched by the disease, don’t forget to integrate a pop of pink into your wardrobe. Whether it be a pencil skirt, cardigan, or simple sheath, there’s never been a better time of year to show your allegiance to one of fashion’s most feminine shades.

Think pink,
