Find of the Day + Ann Taylor Shoe Sale

Alright guys, I literally JUST featured these heels in today's post - click here if you missed it.  However, I wanted to showcase 'em again for a number of reasons. 

1.  They're ridiculously cute and comfortable - that's saying A LOT because they're almost 4" high.
2.  They're on sale for $35 (!!!) - they were originally $138.
3.  Everyone needs animal print in their life, ha.
4.  ...and I need to share more crazy fashionable shoe picks from Ann Taylor's sale with you guys.
I mean, just look at those heels!  They're SO cute, and they add so much personality to an ensemble.  If you're afraid of wearing animal print because you find it bold, these heels are a good way to start.  The print's very subtle due to its neutral color.  

At 3.75", these shoes may seem intimidating, but like I said, they're super comfy because they have padded footbeds.    You also don't have to worry about them slipping off because they have zippered straps.  I can't recommend these enough!  Make sure you buy a pair for yourself HERE.

Now, only other fabulous shoe picks all under $40!  I never knew Ann Taylor carried so many incredible styles.  Their shoes are seriously on point! I'm seriously thinking about purchasing one of each, ha.

Also, I'm sure you guys already know this, but Ann Taylor's giving you guys an extra 50% off ALL sale styles so make sure you get your browse on.

Workwear Wednesday: The Sleeveless Dress

Happy hump day, guys!  I hope you all are having a great week thus far.  I always get really excited for Wednesdays because I like sharing office-friendly looks!  I know, I'm a dork, ha.  For today's post, I centered my ensemble around my new sleeveless dress from AMICLUBWEAR.  I really like the color!  I definitely need more rust-colored pieces in my life.

I styled the dress with my favorite open-front cardigan to keep things "conservative" and threw on layered pearls for a classy, polished look.  As you all know, accessories can make or break an ensemble.    In this particular case, my necklace adds sophistication - pearls ooze elegance.
Let's take a look at my new bag and heels. If you work in a very formal office, these shoes definitely won't cut it!  You'd have to wear nude heels for sure.  Luckily, I'm a concert pianist and teacher by day so my "uniform's" casual to business-casual for the most part.  I say "for the most part" because I wear formal gowns for recitals.  I purchased these gorgeous heels at Ann Taylor for $35.  A total bargain because they were originally $138.  Lucky for you guys, these shoes are available HERE for the same price - FYI, the extra 50% is taken off at checkout.  I really can't recommend them enough!  They're stunning AND comfortable.

Moving on, I absolutely adore my new Burberry bag! I got it on sale at Bluefly not too long ago.  It's pricy but totally worth it in my opinion.  Due to the neutral color and classic shape, it'll stay in style for years to come, and I know I'll get my money's worth.  Remember, it's all about cost-per-wear!  Read about it in my recent post, "4 Bags Every Girl Must Own."  I talk all about the importance of an investment bag there so make sure you guys check it out!
