Working It Out
So as part of the ongoing quest for "business-casual-yet-professional" looks, une femme attempts to answer the eternal question: jeans for the Business Casual office, Oui ou Non?

Jacket: Talbots navy wool blazer from probably 5 years ago now. This is one of the few menswear-style blazers I still wear, as the fabric is light and soft, and drapes nicely.
Jeans: my new 7's. Did I mention they are very flattering on?
Top: Eileen Fisher silk jersey long-sleeve tee.
Shoes: Stuart Weitzman ankle boots, in year 5. (Probably my best shoe investment ever based upon cost-per-wear.)
Jewelry: Wendy Brandes Diana necklace, Talbots and Chanel necklaces.
And here's my Wendy Brandes Tribute Pose:
