What I Wore Wednesday: Versace is Business Appropriate Right?

Last Friday I helped throw a blogger and brand event for one of my clients. I wanted to look professional but not too stuffy so I opted for my Versace for HM skirt and paired it with leggings to make it less formal. Please note this photo was taken at home once I finally got back from the airport at the end of a 13 hour day so please excuse the flat hair and tired look!

I also had to take a picture of my Rabbi's Daughters travel bag. My Mom got is for me and I LOVE it. Not only is it covered in Yiddish words but it is the perfect size for an overnight trip; holds everything I need and fits under the seat on the plane. Please note this added bit of genius I've never seen before: that zip? It is for a pocket inside the bag that holds all your liquids and toiletries. So not only are my liquids easy to access at security but if they spill they don't get all over my clothes! Brilliant!

Apologies if I'm sounding like a wackadoo here but when you fly semi-regularly for business a fashionable and functional carry on bag is quite possibly the best thing ever. Seriously I plotzed. 

If you you are Jewish (or just love Yiddish sayings) and don't know about Rabbi's Daughters you best be clicking because their adult and children lines are super cute. I have a Shayna Punim T-shirt and Blondie Boy has several of their toddler tees. This isn't sponsored in any way shape or form--I just love their products!

Thank you :)

It looks like the closing tag (basically just >) was left off the code. Hopefully it should work now! Let me know if it doesn't x

Melaina25 said...

Thanks Ella! I was mega jealous of your boots!

Hi Melaina, Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog (you left a comment too quick before I added the badge!).

I don't know if anyone else has had this problem this week: I copied and pasted the badge from your sidebar but it was as if there was an html error - I tried it three times in case it was me. In the end I copied and pasted it from the html in my post last week and it worked?! I definitely did "copy all" from your badge so I don't know what I was doing wrong...? Anyway thanks for hosting fab link ups!
Catherine xx

Melaina25 said...

Looking good. Thanks for hosting again.

Melaina25 said...

Of course!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks :)

Melaina25 said...

Thank you! There was a matching top but I thought it was OTT so bought a plain black one instead.

Melaina25 said...

I'm in lust with it, lol.

Melaina25 said...

That Grecian-style border is pretty and smart, both at once. New variation on an old theme - terrific! Oh, and by the way, if that's your tired look, then your get-up-and-go look would leave me standing...

Melaina25 said...

Your skirt and purse are so cute. I linked up again of course late in the day... But at least I made it. :)

Melaina25 said...

Grecian border is totally Versace's calling card :)

Melaina25 said...

Thanks sweetie!

Melaina25 said...

Melaina25 said...

Thank you! Not late the linky stays open all week :)

Melaina25 said...

i love my boots! i love them more because they came from Primark but they don't look like they do haha!

Melaina25 said...

I thought you looked fabulous - and were utterly professional too. Win win, basically :)

Melaina25 said...

Thank you Jax! I spend 90% of my time in an oversized t-shirt so I like to make it count when I'm actually out of the house :)

Melaina25 said...

I love this whole outfit.  Especially the shoes!  I think I am definitely going to check out the bag.  I only travel around twice a year but I work out at a friends house and I bring my luggage with me to shower at her house.  So, I am in love with the idea of a separate compartment!

I love the skirt, it is so fun.
