nine to five: anna from dear friend

This week's Nine to Five feature has the lovely Anna from Dear Friend, another gorgeous Boston lady. Anna always has something creative and fun on her beautiful blog, and she's shared her work-wear with us today. Make sure you check out Shannon's blog for the Q&A!

Get the Look: J.Crew Dress (similar)  / J.Crew Sweater (similar) / Old Navy Belt (similar) / Target Shoes / Target Clutch (similar) / Alex and Ani Bracelet / Kate Spade Bracelet / Target Bracelet / Cape Cod Bracelet / Citizens Watch

Anna brings a bit of sass to her classroom (she is a teacher, after all). I love her arm party and how she mixes awesome new designers (Alex and Ani) with classics like her Cape Cod bracelet. Her flats let her run around after her kids all day, but still let her be stylish. And her sweater is a great pop of color, which also works as a fabulous layering piece.
How do you add pops to your work wardrobe?

  1. Thank you for having me, Alex! I'm so excited!!

    And that etsy shop you linked to (for the similar bag)? I think I might just have to snag something from that shop soon. They've got some great stuff!

  2. P.S. we should prob schedule a blogger date soon. And with Emily (from So Anthro), too! Love that one!


  3. I'd never heard the term "arm party" until like a week ago and now it seems it is everywhere!

  4. I absolutely love Anna's style! I tell her all the time not to be surprised if she comes home one day and her wardrobe is gone. Her style is awesome.

  5. Love the Cape cod bracelet!! I got it years ago from Eden hand arts in Dennis, MA - it goes with so much and you can easily wear it with gold or silver :) great post! Loving the different outfits :)

  6. Yes! Love Anna. And that etsy shop you linked to...tourturing me right now!

    This girl's style is after my own heart...even though I can't figure out how to rock an arm party.

  7. How adorable is she? I love that royal blue sweater!

  8. YAY love Anna and that is a perfect description of her darling New England style! Also I legit envy her arm parties.


Oh, herro there.
