Honestly, in Miami there really is only one season - summer. But, since a lot of you ladies are psyched about the first day of spring, I thought I'd join in the celebration with another homage to pastels. :)
Shirt: J.Crew (get my shirt/another cross-over blouse here)

Don't you guys love this Anne Klein bag? It's such a fun spin on the classic Chanel bag. Don't know why, but I love the quilted feline pattern (maybe it has something to do with me being a proud LEO) :).
Since I have a tremendous amount of work clothes, I always try to rework them into cute outfits that I can wear after hours. That's why I always look for cross-over appeal when I shop for work clothes. What is cross-over appeal you ask? Well, it's a clothing item's ability to be worn at work as well as in various other non-work settings. This gingham shirt and paisley skirt both have tremendous cross-over appeal.
For work, I pair the paisley skirt with a solid purple sweater, and the gingham shirt with slacks. After work... well, the options are pretty much unlimited. Pair the gingham shirt with ripped jeans and your ready for a play date (can you tell that I have babies on the brain lol), pair it with gingham shorts and your ready for a casual stroll, or pair it with a asymmetrical skirt and head to dinner. The possibilities go on and on. Pair the paisley skirt with a sexy silk top for a hot date, a peplum shirt for an art show, or a denim shirt and flats to run errands.
Above all, you can pair your gingham shirt with your paisley skirt and have a pattern mixing ball! LOL. The possibilities are endless. Although it may seem like it, you don't spend all of your time at work, so make sure your clothes can transition with you.
