Do you know what I love the most about my post-grad life? As a college senior three years ago, I was terrified that I was going to have to build an entirely new wardrobe. Suits, dress pants, kitten heels, all the things I loathed. Turns out D.C. has way more of a laid back job environment than I anticipated, and I’ve always had the pleasure of working in more laid back environments. A lot of the pieces I wear to work, I also wear on the weekend!

Exhibit A: this casual, vibrant top from Liz Claiborne’s 40th Anniversary Collection at JCPenney. I would rock this with dark denim and a pair of block heels, and a fun jean and stiletto for the weekend. I love collecting pieces that are super versatile, and this entire collection is jam-packed with them. 

To celebrate Liz Claiborne’s 40th Anniversary, JCPenney just launched a “40 Looks of Liz Claiborne” limited edition collection. The whole line is entirely my vibe: it’s a great mix of both professional and casual pieces that are super versatile and can go from desk to drinks with ease. Not to mention, the price point is absolutely incredible: all skirts are under $35, while all tops are under $28. Score!
