While working girl wardrobes can widely vary based on job, if you’re in an office or professional setting, adding an amazingly fitting pair of black pants, chic black patent leather heels or wedges, and the perfect, luxe camel bag to your wardrobe will make a monumental difference. Even if you’re a girl who craves color and vibrancy, consider these essentials as classic pieces that you can remix time and time again, and no one will be the wiser. Wondering why TAGG recommends camel over black when it comes to a bag? Camel accessories pair way better everything: from black essentials (black dress, trousers + blouse) to florals, prints and springy items, where black often looks too harsh and out-of-place with the later.

Happy Monday, everyone! When it comes to spring, there’a few great go-to’s season after season. While each of us might have a little bit different view of our essentials, a great striped tee, colored denim and a kick-ass necklace could probably be part of most lists. While this outfit might be a little bold for some, pair one at a time to any outfit for instant spring!
This tee is so good; it’s thick (i.e. doesn’t show every little bump!) and luxe feeling, and has the perfect sleeve length for all seasons. For sports fanatics, the stripes also come in a ton of sports colors, which is perfect come football season. And, i can’t get enough of this neon necklace, from a new-ish to me brand, t+j designs, which has such a great array of on-trend jewels. This is the perfect topper to add a little chic to what’s really just a casual tee and jeans. Love.

Jewelmint is one of those lines that is so amazingly good I’m shocked everyone doesn’t know about it. Fronted by the uber cool, Kate Bosworth, the line boasts affordable jewelry with a modern yet vintage store find-feel. Nearly every piece is just $29.99 (and they often have promos!) and my jewelry has worn really well over the two years so far that I’ve purchased from the collection. I really like how the pieces are creative, with a sentimental feel. No joke, I am always getting compliments on my Jewelmint pieces. What’s cool, is that on each product page, the designer and/or Kate shares the origin of the piece or how to style it.
How it works? it’s a free, members-only site with personal jewelry recs based on your style profile (just complete a fun two-minute questionnaire). Select from a wide array, if you want, and new pieces are added monthly. You get free shipping and returns (though honestly: I’ve never returned!).
PROMO PERK // exclusive to TAGG, Jewelmint is offering new members two pieces for the price of one! I’m in love with everything above (can you believe getting two of them for $30 delivered? Amazing).
And, A GIVEAWAY //
One winner will receive any Jewelmint
piece of their choice! Enter by visiting Jewelmint
, sign-up (if you haven’t already, it’s totally free and no obligation), and then comment on this post your favorite piece of jewelry! That’s it.
Fine details: giveaway ends Sunday, May 27, 2013, at midnight EST, and is open to the United States and Canada only. Jewelmint provided TAGG two pieces of jewelry, however all opinions are our own. We probably owned at least a half dozen jewels before being approached about this opportunity, and were immediately excited to gift Jewelmint to a reader.
Memorial Day weekend is fast approaching, which only means one thing (ok, two!): sunshine, and wedding season. I’ve received a few emails about what to wear to weddings, so check out the gorgeous recs below. Aim to find statement dresses that fit you perfectly, but ideally can be worn for a few seasons (and a few weddings this summer). That’s where you’ll get your wedding guest dress bang-for-your-buck. Unless a wedding has the seriously overlapping guest list, your secret is safe with me — ok, and maybe your Facebook feed! Even so, find a classic style and simply swap out your necklace or bling earrings for a totally fresh feel. Not sure how to style the piece? I often look to how to how its styled on the web site (even if I buy in store) as a starting point.
