These printed flats from Burberry are unlike anything I own – in a good way. The print is something you might see on a scarf or even an article of clothing, but on ballet flat? It works just as well. In my experience, Burberry flats are well made and generally comfortable with a good amount of padding. I probably wouldn’t buy them full price, but on sale – count me in!
Burberry Printed Silk Ballerinas ($395)
The Daily Commute features a pair of flats suitable for pairing with professional attire – because there’s no excuse for wearing sneakers, uggs, crocs or rubber flip flops to work, ever.
Last week the Rachel Roy Dress Salon officially launched online – this 9-piece capsule collection of solid, tropical wool dresses ranges from $200 to $500 retail and is meant for busy women to have go-to pieces. Each dress comes in a variety of colors and Roy says, “you all need dresses that are polished, easy and make you look smart.” As someone who wears dresses 99% of the time, I could not agree more!
By far my favorite is the ultra sleek Drape Neck Dress ($348) pictured above which is bound to become a closet staple in many professional women’s wardrobes. It’s conservative enough to wear to the office and yet stylish enough to wear to a cocktail party.
Other favorites include the Keyhole Dress ($398) and Tie Neck Dress ($398) styled below.

This necklace has been everywhere. I’m almost sick of it, almost. I couldn’t justify dropping $150 on something so trendy – I only buy cheap jewelry for myself anyway – leave the nice stuff to my husband :)
There are a ton of replicas out there for much more wallet friendly prices – as in, you can buy one in every color on ebay and spend less than you would on 1 necklace at j.crew. I researched for awhile before buying one myself so hopefully this saves someone else the hassle…
BaubleBar ($38) – search for princesse and there are a few colors – most currently have a wait list.
Cheerfully Charmed ($39 each or buy 2 get 1 free)
Ebay (price ranges) – search for J. Crew bubble necklace and there are a ton of options under $20. The cheapest options all come from China but you can sort by sellers in the US. Also, there’s always buy it now options for those who don’t want to deal with the hassle of bidding.
Etsy (price ranges) – search for J. Crew bubble necklace and there are a ton of options under $40. For faster shipping, sort by sellers in the US.
Jewel IQ ($25) – search for baubles and there are several colors. Note that these necklaces are slightly different and shorter than J. Crew’s version (but may look even better on petites!)
Shop Sosie ($39) – search for cambria and there are a few color options.
There are probably other places to find the necklace but these are the ones that I (or someone I know or someone who has a blog that I trust) have purchased from. If you know of any other places, let us know in the comments!
