kitsch style makeover: meredith day two a "working wardrobe"

Shopping Day!
This was really 2-3 days because we were having too much fun!
Meredith's major wardrobe issue is spicing up her work wardrobe.
Her work dress code is business conservative, but she needs to get away from the same pair of black pants.

Favorite black pants and black flats combo as seen here!
Here are Mama Kat's "Working Wardrobe" essentials:

Pencil skirt
A-line skirt
Wide leg trouser
Boot leg dress pant
Skinny crop pant
Tailored shell dress with empire waist
Wrap dress
One-button blazer
Belted or wrap jacket
White wide leg trouser
(all in neutral colors like black, navy, brown ,or grays)
Cardigan (2)
Standard white button down shirt (2)
Slinky printed shell (2)
Flowy neck tie blouse
Lace cami in black and white
Statement color blouse
 Silk scarf
Stretchy belt in neutral color
1 inch neutral belt
Belt in an accent color
Large statement necklace
Stackable bracelets
Kitten slingback heels
Embellished flats
Round toe pumps
Tote with matching clutch

Here are the bones of your "working wardrobe"
and all you need to add to this wardrobe are
more accented and embellished pieces.
This list is my Spring/Summer list and
is obviously lacking some cold weather essentials
 like coat, sweaters, tights, etc.
With Meredith specifically,we needed to get her
into some dresses and skirts at work!
They are comfortable and easy
to throw on when you are in a hurry!
Add a shoe and it's an outfit!!

Let's see how we did: 

Embellished stretchy belt (L)
and Belt in accent color w/stackable bracelets (R).

Looking for cropped skinny pant at Nordstrom.
This one didn't make the cut.

Here is the "petite and curvy" angle,
you will most likely have to tailor every pant you buy....
so, shop at a retailer like Nordy's that tailors for free!
Here is Mama Kat showing an example of a wrap dress. 
 I love the POLKA-DOTS!

Here are some more things from the list.
They are all from White House Black Market. 

More "after" pictures to come!
I can't wait to put all these items together
and see Meredith in them.
