#Throw Back Thursday

I have noticed a recent running trend in my closet; I own so many pieces that pay homage to 1960’s (like this). These 1960’s trends have been reemerging in fashion, television, advertisements and photography and I don’t hate it! The flattering silhouettes, bright colors, bold patterns and costume jewelry are the perfect tie-ins for summer.  I featured some of my favorite 1960’s inspired dresses; their tailoring, color, and fit make them the ideal for summer work or play.

Very rarely do I find clothes that can translate from work appropriate to something I would wear on the weekend. I tend to be attracted to bold prints, colors and textures, which real doesn’t bode well when you are working in place as conservative as Washington DC. Luckily I work for a company that isn’t stiff, which allows me to show case  my more vibrant side at work. Below I have taken some outfits that aren’t NSFW (not safe for work) and made them more work aprops.
