Working Girl x 4

-->Since graduating from college almost two months ago (eep… time flies!), I have been in the hunt for “professional” clothes, shoes and bags.  When I was in college (read: two months ago) I never really saw the point of collecting pieces that could be useful when I began working.  I always told myself I didn’t need that or that I had plenty of clothes I could wear to work.  While that is partially true, I find myself struggling to find the perfect outfit to wear.

During my last two years of college, I worked in the University Athletic Association.  The office was pretty casual (read: chinos and a cardigan).  And since I was a student and had to walk to work each day, I was able to dress pretty casual for work.  They understood that I had to walk a long distance in the very warm Florida weather…  As long as I wasn’t wearing shorts or jeans, I was usually okay.  But, I have quickly learned that is not always the case.

I am currently working four part-time jobs (while hunting for the right full-time position).  Each of these jobs requires a different level of business-attire.  Two of them are pretty casual (read: jeans are acceptable) and the other two require a more typical business look (or at least business casual).  That being said, I am in the search of my perfect go-to business look.  I am slowly adding pieces to my wardrobe, but need to do a bit more shopping to have a better business-appropriate closet.

Here are a few of my current go-to pieces.

J.Crew Schoolboy Blazer in Navy | J.Crew Factory Skinny Calf Hair Belt | Tory Burch Reva Flats
Loft Ponte Ankle Pants | Vince Camuto 'Elmay' Pump
For those of you working girls, any tips on style in the work place?

Friday's Fancies : Lovely Layers

Many of my friends are currently in the midst of a soon-to-be giant snow storm in the Northeast.  So av is on-spot with this weeks Friday's Fancies theme... lovely layers!  We haven't had much of a winter this year in Florida, so I haven't had many opportunities to wear layers.  This week, I decided to do my post on light layers featuring pink jeans in honor of Valentine's Day.

I will be thinking about my friends up in New York this weekend.  And I'm so thankful to be in sunny, warm Florida!

Check out the link-up!

Guest Post: Shades of Gray

Hi Southern Royalty readers! My name is Emily and I am the founder and creator of Life with Emily, a life and style blog. Feel free to follow along with me, I'd love to have you! 

Gray is slowly becoming one of my favorite transition colors. I love that it is a color that can be paired with darker items, or it can be paired with brighter pastels for spring (which is just around the corner!)

shades of gray

All of these outfits I would 100% wear! I love that even with these items being gray tones they aren't "drab." I used to think any gray item was immediately dull and boring, but my mind has definitely changed within the last year! These gray items look very sophisticated and put together! You can't go wrong!

Do you wear gray?? How would you style your gray pieces?

Can you believe it’s February?  January flew by!  Don’t you just love February and all the pink, pink, pink!  I do.  February is one of my favorite months.  Even though we always have a while left in “winter,” I always feel like February is the perfect month to start brightening up my wardrobe and nail polish choices.  After all, every girl needs to wear a little pink during Valentine’s Day.

Here's a little pink to start off your month right.

Do you wear a lot of pink in February?
