POLITICS

It’s always a challenge to be creative when putting work outfits together, but thanks to fun prints with a few details, like this checkered top, you can have completely exciting outfits pretty easily and inexpensively.  I purchased this top from Anthropologie during their tag sale that is still taking place.  I love the peplum detail on this shirt, which also has some tulle underneath to give the top more structure.  I also like the way it gathers, which allows the top to be flattering.  Prints can be complicated if they do not have a flattering cut.  The last thing you want is a print to own you.  Using an example like this top, you can look for more figure flattering pieces.

ETIQUETTE

I love this outfit for the office.  It’s playful and conservative at the same time.  I would also wear this top under with a suit and pull it out on the weekend with black leather pants, similar to this pair, or black skinny jeans.

I found this video by Peggy Fleming about the Capital Pool Checker Club, which has been located in Shaw since 1982.  I encourage you to watch this and learn more about this special location and its history.

The mural on the side of the building was created as part of the MuralsDC initiative by artist Richard Colman.
