I’ve worked weekends since 2013. For nearly five years my Saturday’s and Sunday’s have involved me sharing the stories of amazing people in Western, New York and Central, Alabama. Working weekends is a part of the job, almost a right of passage in the broadcast business. At some point in your career you must work weekends.

Who said your work wardrobe had to be boring and stuffy? If you guys have been following me on Twitter then you know I’ve been talking about revamping my work wardrobe.  I recently added colorful blazers, studs, textures, patterned and colored tights.  These upgrades are more of a reflection of me and my personality.

Take for instance, this look above I added a bright color blazer. The blazer is tailored and still professional. I paired the blazer with a traditional fabric like tweed. For fun and flare I added a semi-sheer black ruffle blouse.

It’s Thursday’s edition of our “Working It” series. Today we’re definitely taking a risk with this emerald green dress. Since the dress is a solid color and not a print we can get away with it for a work environment. We paired the dress with another risky item, these Emilio Pucci leopard and stud booties.  We added a brown leather bag and brown bangle. We also added some gold accents in the form of stud earrings.

Check out the look below.

It’s day three of our ” Working It ” series. We want you to have fun with your look for work. Instead of wearing stuffy suits,try adding a bold print or a funky blazer. Today we took it back to the basics, it’s a look everyone can pull off. We went with all black everything. What makes this look more contemporary, is the jacket and accessories. The jacket has just enough edge to it, where it’s not over the top.  We added simple black pumps and a spiked cuff.
