Just returned from two days in my London office for a whirlwhind tour of clients and meetings before hitting the other side fo the pond. Here's a pretty close approximation of what was in my bag - black staples as always, with an increasing number of pink accessories to lighten things up. I think that's a directly correlated to having a baby girl. What can I say? I've gone soft.
My packing job includes my no-fail black sheath, though the one I actually have is from JCrew - but I would take this one from Barney's in a heartbeat. However there are definitely more reasonably priced options out there - same for statement necklace. I'm also liking these days the black suit with slightly shorter/capri pants combo, and adding a touch of Hermes scarf as a cumberbund to distract from the post-DB souvenir belly.
PS - Clearly I'm no polyvore pro - I can't seem to get rid of those top and bottom margins. Sigh - I'll put perfecting those technical skills on the to-do list.
