Guest Post: Alice from Happiness at Mid-Life

Happy Hump Day! I'm spending yet another day in New Orleans with my team working our tradeshow. It's hot and muggy here (and the Seattle in me loves to hate it) and I forgot my camera. That's probably a good thing, because my outfits are all some combination of black polo + skirt/slacks - but more importantly because it is letting me show off some of the other bloggers out there. Today, we have Alice - I think you'll love her!
Hi Everyone! I am Alice from Happiness at Mid-Life and have been following Bri's blog for some time now and love her sense of style!  Thank you Bri for giving me an opportunity to guest post on your blog and share my work fashion style.  I work in banking which typically means a BLAND & BORING wardrobe- suits and dark colors.  I guess you could say, I am the Jimmy Dean Sun (from the commercial) that brightens up my office with colors and prints.

I am also not your 20 something blogger so I am try to dress not like my teenage daughter (if I had one).  With that said, I do stick to styles and cuts that are more on the conservative style but still fun and my own.  My favorite go to stores are White House Black Market, Banana Republic, Loft, Ann Taylor, J Crew and of course...Target!

Here are some examples on how I bright some color into my office.  I love feminine details like ruffles and sequins which makes any work outfit just a little more fun!  Don't you think?


Definitely go check out Alice's fun work wardrobe - for you color-shy, or color-rut girls out there (I'm talking to you Fran ;) ), she's definitely an inspiration!
