With the pending Oklahoma heat and numerous daytime events to attend this month, I’ve got to have things in my closet that are neutral.  I find that having plenty of neutral statement pieces makes it easy to dress appropriately for a luncheon, client consultation or a business meeting with my Public Relations Director.  Building out from a neutral colored dress is super easy with some great accessories.  Here I’m showing you calm with a slant on the safari theme that is so big this Spring. a.k.a Michael Kors.  Obviously you can change the whole look with a bright bag, scarf or jewelry. This classic camel colored Ralph Lauren dress is perfect for an apple shaped body like mine.
