zFashion Thursdays: It's Not Personal, It's Business, Or Is It?

Whenever I go shopping, I always call my mom on the way back and tell her what I got - she loves clothes, and, as you can see, she is the one responsible for giving me my fashionista genes. But whenever I tell her that I got a cute t-shirt or a cute little dress, she always asks: Anything for work? (Maybe she asks because she is so proud of me for becoming an attorney.)

No, mom! Nothing for work. I mean, I work to live, I don't live to work (or is it vice versa?).

My point is, that I would rather spend the money on clothes for my weekend adventures, not work.

Anyways,  I do have to admit that she is right - as much as I love getting into my jeans and t-shirts, I can't wear them to work... and I do have to work.

So today's fashion post is about the business wear. But no suits, sorry. They kind of suffocate me. So usually, I wear either a black dress (I have a few), or black pants with silk blouses or shirts. And to cover my shoulders, I grab a cardigan instead of a jacket.

And I am proud to say that I am pretty reasonable when it comes to spending on clothes. Mixing pieces from ZaraAnn TaylorVince Camuto, or Michael Kors give me the opportunity to save money on the more important things - shoes and handbags, of course.

Before I show you this week's look, I have to give a shout out to my photographer - my Honey. After I came back from LA, I dragged him to an office center near Irvine Spectrum, put the camera into his hands, and asked to take photos. Thank you Honey! 
 I love the flowness of a silk blouse. It is feminine, soft and pleasant to the body. Zara silk blouse. (similar here)

Ann Taylor is a great place for pants and cardigans. I get quite a good "mileage" out of them. (similar here)
And Tory Burch Handbag. I love this bag! I can put there my files, computer, snacks, snickers, make up, and camera, and still have space for anything else I can think of I need... or not.
These are my favorite Tory Burch booties (sorry they are old, but I found similar ones here). 
Swarovski crystal pendant and a gold chain.
Have a fabulous day!
