Lindsay and I are so thrilled to partner with Ann Taylor today to share modern yet versatile wardrobe pieces we are loving for fall! The temps have cooled down this week and all of a sudden it truly feels like fall. We couldn’t be more excited about it! With each new season we get so energized to share new arrivals with you all! The crisp air and changing foliage always signal the time to embrace new trends, silhouettes and outfit ideas – and get a pumpkin spice latte, right? 🙂

Not only are we going to share about our three step sister outfits but will also focus on trends we know you all will love as much as we do! When it comes to getting ready for 8-5 work days, meetings, after work events, business casual functions etc. in the fall, we love following the trio approach of pairing a blouse with a skirt {or pencil pant} followed by a blazer or jacket.

ann-taylor-modern-versatile-workwear-fall-promo-event-the-doule-take-girlsThe layered look provides interest but also keeps you warm once temps drop throughout the fall. We put this formula to work in today’s coordinated sister style looks! Ann Taylor makes it so easy to look polished in no time. Their designers work tirelessly to create clothing and accessories that empower women to not only look but feel their best. Whether you are looking for a new blouse or need a whole new wardrobe – Ann Taylor has endless fit and sizing options available that will help you put your best foot forward. Here are some of our top picks for jackets, blouses and pencil skirts!

Classic Jackets

Modern Blouses
Perfect Pencil Skirts

Let’s chat about Lindsay’s look and daily work first! Lindsay is a Registered Dietitian and has been a college nutrition instructor for the last decade. From classroom to boardroom, to blogging and back to her daughter’s pre-school pickup – one of her favorite go-to items is the essential tie neck blouse. It pairs perfectly with pencil pants, skirts, denim and more! This blouse is one of the five new styles that Ann Taylor created for their fall collection. It’s SO soft and we love how the tie can be worn in a knot or a bow tie. Now time to look at all her outfit details.

Lindsay’s Chic Black & White Outfit


Plaid Jacket (TTS)- Ann Taylor c/o  // Bow Tie Blouse (TTS) – Ann Taylor c/o  // Pencil Skirt (size up if between) – Ann Taylor c/o  // Tote Bag – Tory Burch // Bracelet – Moon & Lola

One of our fave fall patterns is definitely plaid. As soon as we saw this oversized printed jacket, we knew it would be the perfect thing to share with you all! It comes with a removable belt that Lindsay tied behind for a tailored look. Don’t you just love how it pairs with this oh so chic bow tie blouse? It comes in three colors and is available in petite, regular and tall size options. Not sure which size is best for you? Try the “true fit” online fit feature that is listed under each clothing item. It’s such a great help!

No work wear outfit is complete without a perfectly tailored pencil skirt or pant. While we typically wear pants, there’s something simply chic about a black pencil skirt. Lindsay is wearing this new arrival called the seasonless stretch seamed pencil skirt. It’s affordably priced and made from stretch fabric that will keep you comfortable all day long. It’s machine washable {hello, fabulous!} and comes in both regular and petite size options. If you are between sizes then go up in size. From desk to date night, this piece is a working girl’s must have. 🙂

This is definitely a must-have closet staple! Now for a little bit about me {Whitney} and my day-to-day work plus outfit details. I have spent the last decade as a Marketing Manager and have been managing all things {along with Lindsay of course} for nearly 7 years. It’s hard to believe how fast the time has gone! My favorite piece of Ann Taylor’s current collection is this gorgeous burgundy wrap pencil skirt thanks to how versatile and flattering it is. Let’s look at my full outfit details now!

Whitney’s Chic Burgundy Tweed Look:


Tweed Ruffle Collar Jacket (size down if between) – Ann Taylor c/o // Bow Tie Blouse (TTS) – Ann Taylor c/o // Wrap Pencil Skirt (TTS) – Ann Taylor c/o // Tote Bag – Tory Burch // Bracelet – Moon & Lola

I loved Lindsay’s cream bow tie blouse so much under her tweed jacket that admittedly I had to copy her look! It’s just such a classic combo and it makes a statement without being to loud if that makes sense. I selected the tie neck blouse in winter white and paired it with this new tweed ruffle collar jacket. This feminine jacket features shades of deep red, white, black and a hint of sparkle. It’s fully lined and has 3/4 sleeves. It runs just a tad big so I was able to size down in it for the perfect fit. It’s so luxe!! I can’t wait to style it with skinny black jeans and pencil pants too. It even has a matching skirt if you are someone that loves suit sets.

Now for the skirt! I was browsing our local Ann Taylor store and came across this new style of skirt. It’s called the satin trim wrap pencil skirt and is fully lined and features the prettiest satin trim along the hemline. I’m not sure who designed this stunning skirt but I definitely want to thank them!! It is so comfortable and flattering. The expertly designed wrap portion of the skirt provides a slimming feature that you will love. It comes in both regular and petite sizes and runs true to size. I’m going to order the polka dot version too!

ann-taylor-modern-versatile-workwear-fall-promo-event-the-doule-take-girlsNow that we have shared our no fail formula for looking chic in no time, here’s three trends we are loving for fall!

1. Pearls – There’s just something about pearls that provide timeless class yet versatility. Ann Taylor has so many new arrivals out for fall that utilize pearl accents. Whether you prefer tops, pants, sweaters or accessories – there’s a perfect pearl item waiting for you. We can’t get enough of this black pearl detail blouse and how cute are these pearl hem jeans? We each got a pair and will be sharing photos of them very soon. They run true to size are are so comfy!

2. Bows – It probably goes without saying we are obsessed with all things bows. This fall season Ann Taylor has introduced a new blouse called the Tie Neck Blouse {as we shared above in our looks} and it can be worn in a classic tied bow or left untied. They also designed the Tie Cuff Blouse in three colors and prints. It’s equally as stunning!! Whichever style you go with, you will love the simple statement that the bows make. They are perfect to wear with skirts, pants and jeans.

3. Tweed – Another fall trend we love to see each year is all about tweed. From skirts and jackets to shoes and jewelry – Ann Taylor has fully embraced this menswear inspired trend. We love how tweed items just always seem to magically stay in style. This makes them great investment pieces too!
