good look for less EXPRESS: Dana!

Today's good look for less wardrobe consult is for Dana... Dana is in love with JCrew (who isn't these days - sheesh!) but needs some help balancing her work wardrobe (business casual) with her weekend wardrobe. My goal here was to offer some outfits that could do double duty with a quick and easy change up. Let's explore!

I love the versatility of this dress... here I styled it for work. For play I would simply swap out the Old Navy issued belt with a fun wide belt in brown and ditch the jacket and you are ready for a night out with the girls or a date with someone special.

Business casual definitions vary widely... but if these linen trousers don't fit the bill I would swap them for a white or khaki wool trouser. For the weekend or evenings... ditch the cardigan and add a cocktail!

Dana mentioned that she loves JCrew and has a ton of cardigans. Here I hoped to reflect something she already had in her wardrobe - but that yellow sure is fun isn't it (fingers crossed you have one similar Dana!). Any color cardi would work and then for business casual simply swap out the skinny jeans for black trousers.

Happy Shopping Dana!

I just wanted to mention that I just bought the gray old navy cardigan from the 2nd look and it is so, so awesome. It's my new favorite piece and I want to wear it all the time! Pretty great for $26.50 (with a $20 rewards card so it only cost me $6.50!)

These look great! I've been lusting over the gray cardigan in the 2nd look, too. Everyone seems to have a version, including j. crew, but I think the Old Navy price makes much more sense!
