It just goes to show that wearing a head-to-toe monochromatic look doesn’t have to be boring…

I spotted this blazer in Zara a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t get it out of my head. I finally bit the bullet and scooped it up the other day, and I’m really glad that I did. The contrasting prints inject a little bit of funk, and it matches perfectly with my new kicks (which you can pick up at Daffy’s for just $50, by the way!).

I’m a career gal, living in NYC while attempting to climb the corporate ladder one fashionable footstep at a time. I always dreamed of a glamorous job in the fashion industry, but instead I became a technology geek and now spend most of my days talking bits and bytes with IT Directors. Even though khakis and polos are the standard uniform within my industry, I prefer dresses and high heels. The only fashion rules I follow are to have fun and keep it classy… everything else is fair game! I look forward to sharing both my on- and off-duty looks with the Curly Nikki community each week. I am literally ALL OVER the web, and you can connect with me via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, and Pinterest.
