    Interestingly, Storets actually calls this dress a coat.  While it could possibly be worn open over separates, I’d say that first and foremost, it is unequivocally a dress.  It’s made of really nice heavy material, but not so heavy that you’d feel weird wearing it inside.  In my opinion, it’s the perfect alternative to a skirt suit or dress/blazer combo when you’re looking for a way to spice up your business formal attire.  (Doesn’t this dress just scream SPICY to you?)  With the double-breasted front and classic menswear-inspired glen plaid fabric, the dress has all the formality of a full suit but all the fuss-free comfort of a dress.

    The other unusual thing on Storets’ website when it comes to this dress is the color description which indicates that the dress is “navy.”  I’m not sure if this is a typo, or if the fabric is indeed navy and white, but if it is, it’s a super dark, near-black navy.  The buttons on the dress and the coordinating belt are all definitely black, so I have it paired with black accessories.  Again, très confusing.

    So despite the discrepancies in product description, this classic glen plaid pleated coat dress is one of my very favorite purchases… maybe EVER?  The style is timeless and the fit is spot on.  I wish I had more than two thumbs to point emphatically upwards.

    One of my best friends grew up in London and has the most amazing style.  As many of you know, I  have a particular fondness for British style, so whenever I see Meghan, I’m often interrogating her on where she found whatever amazing thing she’s wearing that day.  Just this past Saturday night when we were out for a girls dinner in Soho, she was wearing the most beautiful coat (super similar to THIS ONE) and, like innumerable gems she has sported in the past, she informed me that it was of course from Marks & Spencer, another one of Britain’s greatest gifts to the world.  I spent the rest of our dinner contemplating methods of pilfering the coat, which included at least one failed attempt at bribing the coat check attendant to tell her it was lost.  FYI, for all of you New Yorkers, the coat check guy at Le Turtle has zero chill.

    After hearing about the magic that is Marks & Spencer for so many years, I had to finally check it out for myself.  Enter these AMAZING checked joggers, this perfect chunky knit sweater, and this navy double-breasted coat with cool faux fur collar.  I have to say, perusing their online store was an extremely dangerous experience (consider yourself warned).  This is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of my online purchases from them.  It’s entirely possible that I only wear Marks & Spencer clothing from this point forward.  The love is real.


    marks-and-spencer-double-breasted-navy-pea-coat-plaid-pants-chunky-knit-work-wear-fashion-blog-memorandum4


    But let’s chat price point for a hot sec:  I have to say I was a bit skeptical about the quality of the pieces because if you take a quick spin through their site, you’ll see that their prices seem to be in the “way too good to be true” range.  However, I’m thrilled (and shocked) to report that the quality of the garments is strikingly good.  To top it all off, their packaging was so nice that I did not have to iron a SINGLE THING that I’m wearing between ripping it out of the box like a rabid five-year-old on Christmas morning and wearing it to work the next day.  I mean, just take a look at those pants!  The drape of the fabric, the quality of the tailoring, the pleating detail at the waist and the cuff at the hem—I’ll take one in every color, please.


    marks-and-spencer-double-breasted-navy-pea-coat-plaid-pants-chunky-knit-work-wear-fashion-blog-memorandum9


    And not to wax on about these pants too much, but not only are they beautifully constructed and amazingly comfortable, they’re also my absolute favorite alternative to traditional workwear pants.  With the classic check, pleating, and cuffs, they are that perfect mix of classic and trendy—appropriate for every office environment, while still maintaining a little of that extra stylistic oomph with the modified drawstring waist and loose “jogger” fit.  If all of that isn’t enough, let me just close with these three words: hidden elastic waistband.


    By all means, go ahead and take a moment to compose yourself.

    Just like the pants, they spared no detail when it comes to this chunky sweater or double-breasted coat.  The sweater is exactly the perfect oversized knit that’s as comfortable and effortlessly chic at the office as it is with ripped jeans on the weekends.  It has an amazing cuffed sleeve and a notched hem with a longer length in the back—a particularly clutch detail for mastering that half tucked/half untucked look.  Oh, and did I mention that it’s $30?  That’s 3-0 dollars.  I repeat, it’s THIRTY DOLLARS and comes in four perfect colors.  Run don’t walk.


    marks-and-spencer-double-breasted-navy-pea-coat-plaid-pants-chunky-knit-work-wear-fashion-blog-memorandum10


    As for the coat, the faux fur collar breathes new life into the classic peacoat style, yet the masterminds at Marks & Spencer ingeniously made the collar detachable so you can remove it when you’re going for a more classic, streamlined look.  That little touch makes such a huge difference and truly makes it seem like you own two completely different coats.  Feel free to high-five your wallet on this one.

    red-oversized-coat-grey-double-breasted-button-mini-skirt-tie-sleeve-white-shirt-layered-turtleneck-work-wear-memorandum-style-blog-nyc4


    Today I’m highlighting two of the biggest 2017 trends: the statement sleeve and the layered turtleneck.  We’ve been seeing both of these over the past many months, on and off runways, and I’m so happy that they’re here to stay.  First of all, I’ve always been obsessed with turtlenecks, even when they were very very very uncool.  I believe it was a source of much amusement for my brothers when I was in middle school, but even their daily ridicule could not cure me of my affinity for these cozy beauties.  Trendy or not, there’s just nothing better during the colder months, and this season it’s not just about the turtlenecks themselves.  It’s turtlenecks layered under everything—dresses, other sweaters, and (my favorite) button down shirts.


    red-oversized-coat-grey-double-breasted-button-mini-skirt-tie-sleeve-white-shirt-layered-turtleneck-work-wear-memorandum-style-blog-nyc3red-oversized-coat-grey-double-breasted-button-mini-skirt-tie-sleeve-white-shirt-layered-turtleneck-work-wear-memorandum-style-blog-nyc10


    Now, this crisp white button down is not just your average joe crisp white button down.  As you can see above, it has the most amazing split bell sleeves joined by bow ties at the wrists.  Statement sleeves of all shapes and sizes have been making major waves this year (just take a spin through some of my favorites in the widget below!), but I’m a particular fan of the split sleeve variety.  This crisp, lightweight collared shirt will be an easy wear through the spring and summer, but I loved it layered over a turtleneck for a winter-friendly spin.  Especially with those split bell sleeves, the contrasting black turtleneck underneath really highlights the cool arm detail.

    I’ve worn this silver circle collar necklace obsessively since getting it last fall, and almost immediately went back to buy it in gold as well.  I often go for simple, geometric jewelry, and these beauties certainly fit the bill.  There are only a few left in stock, so I’ve rounded up a few similars below (including this near-identical silver version) since they will likely sell out in about 30 seconds…

    I’m sorry for the unusually sparse posting lately—I promise this is not the new normal!  After the overwhelmingly busy holiday season, I’ve been spending much of January trying to get caught up and reorganized on lots of work/projects/life/blah blah blah.  The stuff that’s important, but not necessarily super visible here on the blog.


    We have lots of exciting new stuff coming down the pike with Trove, and I have tons of new projects that you’ll be seeing here on Memorandum as well.  This year, I’m especially looking forward to expanding more in the areas of home decor and entertaining, beauty and hair care… and video!  So, lots of good stuff on the docket, and I appreciate your patience while I get it all in order.


    Happy Thursday!!

  • moose-knuckles-colorful-fur-lined-olive-parka-stuart-weitzman-over-the-knee-suede-brown-boots-chunky-knit-sweater-high-rise-jeans-nyc-blogger1


    Welp, it was an eventful weekend, to say the least!  Rich and I went down to Nashville for a quick weekend trip, and upon landing at roughly 4pm on Friday afternoon, I found that my instagram account (@maryorton) had been hacked.  [Insert Russian hacking joke here.]  The account has been disabled, so for those of you who noticed over the weekend that my instagram wasn’t showing up at all, thank you for all of your sweet messages and emails!  I’m currently working with Instagram to (hopefully!!) bring it back to life and I’ll continue to provide updates (and as few dramatic lamentations as possible) via snapchat, so stay in touch there. Fingers and toes crossed!

  • beige-marks-spencer-robe-coat-ripped-jeans-velvet-pumps-ysl-burgundy-dylan-bag-casual-work-wear-office-style2


    First off, I’m thrilled to report that instagram officially brought my account back from the dead!  It was a long four days (which I’m pretty sure translates four millennia in social media years), but somehow they were able to restore the account so great news all around.  …because there’s nothing more important going on in the world than my hacked instagram account, right?  Don’t answer that.


    We’ve had some crazy windy days in the last week here in NYC, hence the wind-tunnel look of these photos and the eventual “I give up let’s snap a picture in this weird hallway in the building” photo below.  I snagged this amazing neutral robe coat from Marks & Spencer, which you guys know is my new favorite spot.  The coat has the prettiest silhouette and has amazing tie details at the sleeves and waist.  It was the perfect topper for a chilly winter day over this super casual office look.

    Happy Friday!  Followers often ask me where to find certain things that I instagram (@maryorton for those of you who are new around here) so I thought today I’d highlight some recent favorites that have been shared on the ‘gram, all of which can always be found under the SHOP tab in the top navigation bar.  If ever you’re wondering what I’m wearing in one of my instagrams, you can always come right here to memorandum.com, hover over that SHOP icon and click INSTAGRAM.  You’ll see the below grid show up where you can click on each post and find links to everything I’m wearing… unless it’s sold out or old, in which case I always try to link to things that are super similar.


    Have a wonderful weekend everyone!! xx

    Aside from sharing this outfit with you today, I’m thrilled to report that the Trove app has some exciting new features!  We’ve been hard at work expanding the ways in which you can discover new content in the app and search for your favorite pieces.  Now, when you enter the app, you’ll find a new style quiz that will help you find bloggers to follow that match your personal style.  Additionally, if you click on the search icon on the app’s home screen, you’ll find lots of new goodies including featured bloggers, bloggers by location, bloggers by style, featured outfits and trend categories.  One of the best things we’re just rolling out is the ability to search for a specific product in the search bar. Looking for a little black dress or nude pumps?  Just toggle over to “Outfits” and type the item you’re looking for into the search bar to get tons of shoppable outfits featuring the exact item you’re searching for.  We’re still refining this feature, so if you have any feedback, we’re all ears!


    If you haven’t downloaded the app, click HERE or search “Trove Style” in the Apple app store!  And, if you’re new around here or you missed my post all about the Trove app, read up HERE.  Excited to hear what you guys think!!

    And now back to our regular programming…


    My friends, Groundhog Day may have indicated six more weeks ’til Spring, but that doesn’t mean you can’t (sort of) start dressing like it.  This floral sheath dress has one of those perfect, seasonless prints that looks as good in February as it does in July.  As many of you know, layering a turtleneck or a long-sleeve collared shirt underneath sleeveless and short-sleeve dresses is my favorite way to extend their lifespans, and keeps my favorite summer sheaths from collecting dust all winter long.

    Finally, a workwear brand that actually, really gets it.


    I’ve heard about MM.LaFleur for years, and finally had the chance to try out their Bento Box recently.  Man oh MAN are they a breath of fresh air.  Especially if you’re an attorney, finance professional, consultant, or simply a person in search of building a classic, sophisticated work wardrobe, I have officially found your go-to.


    mm-lafleur-work-wear-professional-attire-working-women-classic-black-sheath-dress-camel-coat-silk-scarf1


    With stunning silhouettes, quality fabrics, and impeccable craftsmanship, MM.LaFleur has come up with—hands down—the most inspired collection of workwear pieces I’ve encountered to date.  No question.  Finally, a brand that does not see form and function as mutually exclusive.  A brand that knows style and substance can go hand-in-hand, and understands the sartorial challenges that professional women face in real life.  MM.LaFleur has managed to offer working women a true solution instead of another impractical fashion-industry take on how to “like totally look like a girl boss!”  Cue the collective eye roll.


    mm-lafleur-work-wear-professional-attire-working-women-classic-black-sheath-dress-camel-coat-silk-scarf7mm-lafleur-work-wear-professional-attire-working-women-classic-black-sheath-dress-camel-coat-silk-scarf6mm-lafleur-work-wear-professional-attire-working-women-classic-black-sheath-dress-camel-coat-silk-scarf3


    In addition to their vast collection of beautiful workwear pieces (which, oh BTW, are travel-friendly and mostly machine-washable), MM.LaFleur offers amazing (free!) styling services.  By answering a few simple questions, an MM.LaFleur stylist will send you a Bento Box with four to six clothing items and accessories to try on at home.  They thoughtfully identify which pieces will work best for your body type and be appropriate for your specific corporate environment.  It is not a subscriptions service, so you’re not locked into anything, you’re simply charged for what you keep and send the rest back.  A total godsend for the busy working woman who needs classic, high-quality workwear, without the stress of shopping.  I had the opportunity to try out this service and can truly attest that their motto of “taking the work out of dressing for work” rings true.


    mm-lafleur-work-wear-professional-attire-working-women-classic-black-sheath-dress-camel-coat-silk-scarf15mm-lafleur-work-wear-professional-attire-working-women-classic-black-sheath-dress-camel-coat-silk-scarf11mm-lafleur-work-wear-professional-attire-working-women-classic-black-sheath-dress-camel-coat-silk-scarf12mm-lafleur-work-wear-professional-attire-working-women-classic-black-sheath-dress-camel-coat-silk-scarf13mm-lafleur-work-wear-professional-attire-working-women-classic-black-sheath-dress-camel-coat-silk-scarf9mm-lafleur-work-wear-professional-attire-working-women-classic-black-sheath-dress-camel-coat-silk-scarf14 mm-lafleur-work-wear-professional-attire-working-women-classic-black-sheath-dress-camel-coat-silk-scarf16mm-lafleur-work-wear-professional-attire-working-women-classic-black-sheath-dress-camel-coat-silk-scarf10


    For those of you operating in business formal environments which require you to dress conservatively, I know how difficult it can be to look at clothing billed as “work appropriate” just to find that the dress is actually not much longer than mini-skirt length, or the blouse has a deep v that travels several inches south of what’s realistically work appropriate.  I had the opportunity to try on multiple dresses, tops, skirts and jackets from MM.LaFleur, and without sacrificing an ounce of style, their silhouettes were truly differentiated.  Even tops with v-necks or skirts with slits are both tasteful and stylish, making me feel comfortable all day no matter what kind of bending/leaning/dabbing might take place.


    mm-lafleur-work-wear-professional-attire-working-women-classic-black-sheath-dress-camel-coat-silk-scarf5


    Ladies, run don’t walk.  This universally flattering black dress originally amassed a 1,600 person waitlist for a reason.  You can shop everything I’m wearing online (where you can also sign up for a Bento Box) or if  you want to try things on in person, hop on over to their NYC showroom.   If you live in DC, stay tuned!  They’re opening a showroom there in March!

    New York Fashion Week started on Thursday with a bang… and a blizzard.  Looking chic in a full-on snow storm is only slightly less difficult than playing Liszt’s Feux Follets on the piano.  Damn near impossible.  I opted for practical block heel boots (love these ones), cozy joggers with knit detailing that kept my ankles warm (plus Under Armour underneath, duh), and this glorious gray coat with the warmest fur-trimmed hood.  In all honesty, this Wisconsin girl loved the excuse to bundle up and trek through the snow.  It made for an exciting first day of shows (minus all the poor Cali girls wiping out in bare legs and stilettos #DedicatedFashionistas) and a beautiful winter day in New York City.

    Get used to bold hues, my friends, because you’ll be seeing ’em everywhere all through the fall and winter seasons.  *Giving a real quick shout out to the heavyweight champ of the year, pink, for maintaining its reign three seasons strong (and counting!)* I was never a huge pink fan until recently, but now I can’t get enough.  (PSA: It isn’t going anywhere soon.)  The mockneck silk blouse I’m wearing today is one of my absolute favorite new Nordstrom finds, and I love the subtle puffed shoulder and tie back detailing (also check out the surprise cutouts at the cuff!).

    This pleated midi skirt is the perfect shade of deep orange that will carry you all through fall, cut in a classic silhouette that can literally take you anywhere.  This hue will also look beautiful with neutrals, and could easily be paired with a white button down if you’re looking to take a more subtle approach.

    To ground the bright colors, I paired with simple makeup and black accessories. But as you can see, the accessories still pack a punch of their own.  I ADORE this black D&G Sicily bag with the embellished handle that adds just enough excitement, but doesn’t prevent it from being super wearable.  As you know, I’ve had the bag in nude for a while, and for me, there is not a more beautiful, timeless silhouette on the planet.

    Also on the accessories front, I recently stumbled upon this stunning beaded belt at Nordstrom and am fully. UHBSESSED.  It’s arguably the true star of the show here because the multicolored beading truly unites the pink and the orange clothing, bringing the full look together seamlessly (which is a true art form…).  I have to give a major shoutout to Nordstrom’s accessories department for the unexpected killer find, which has been a trend for me lately.  I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I also just discovered their BP brand sunglasses, which I’m hoarding in droves because they’re basically $12 versions of every designer sunglass brand I’m coveting right now.

  • 08/17/17--07:52: What’s a Facial Essence?
  • SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Skincare 30 Day Experiment


    What the heck is a facial “essence,” you ask?  Been there.  My skincare-savvy friends have been raving about essences for the past couple years, and until now, I assumed it was just the latest and greatest skincare gimmick.  But instead of fading away, this buzz has seemed to only be amplifying, so I decided to do some research.


    Here’s what I found:  Simply put, a facial essence restores moisture and helps your skin better-absorb other skincare products that you layer on top.  And, the undisputed queen bee product?  SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence.  Hear me out on this one…


    SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Skincare 30 Day Experiment


    SK-II has been a favorite skincare brand of mine for years, and their Facial Treatment Essence kept coming up as the “holy grail” essence product in both my conversations with friends and my research.  This particular essence is a clear, lightweight liquid rich in vitamins, amino acids, minerals and other organic acids.  It boasts the ability to help to reduce wrinkles, improve skin tone, increase firmness and enhance overall radiance.  Sounds great, but isn’t that what every skincare product claims?


    SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Skincare 30 Day Experiment


    To be honest, I’ve grown weary of the 90% of skincare brands that are like, Hey! Let’s throw a bunch of multi-syllabic pseudo-scientific words on a bottle!  That’ll get ’em!  Thankfully, this is a main point of differentiation for SK-II and their Facial Treatment Essence.  As you can see here, SK-II not only has robust scientific evidence behind their primary ingredient—PiteraTMbut they also go to great lengths to educate consumers on its benefits.  A brand that doesn’t treat me like an idiot?!  How refreshing.


    After doing my due diligence, I decided to give this product the old college try.  I embarked on my #OneBottleAwayFrom journey (hopefully!) to the healthy, radiant skin I haven’t seen in a few years.  For 30 days, I applied the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence after cleansing my skin, once in the morning and once at night.  You just saturate a cotton swab with the liquid (or pour a teaspoon-sized amount into the palm of your hand) and pat it all over your face and neck.  Easy-peasy.


    SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Skincare 30 Day Experiment


    30 days later, I’m an absolute CONVERT.  As a perpetually sleep-deprived entrepreneur, my skin often takes a serious toll, but incorporating this essence into my routine for a month has produced VISIBLE results.  My skin is noticeably more firm, more even, and all-around healthier.  After two weeks, I noticed a huge improvement in my skin’s tightness and general texture:  It was smoother than it had been in years, which only improved over the following two weeks.  By the end of my trial, I couldn’t believe the bright complexion staring back at me in the mirror.  Bottom line—this product is now a permanent staple in my skincare routine and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

    When staring down the barrel of a hectic workweek, there’s nothing better than that go-to black sheath dress that doesn’t require much thought, but makes you look and feel like a million bucks.  I recently spotted this Ted Baker beauty at Nordstrom and let’s just say, it had me at “11% elastane.”  With beautiful architectural lines and peplum detailing at the waist, the dress’s sleek, sculptural appearance belies how unbelievably comfortable the stretchy knit fabric really is.


    If you’re looking to refresh your arsenal of fall workwear, Ted Baker has a ton of other stunners for in or out of the office.  Check out a few more that I recently spotted at Nordstrom below, including this beauty which is currently in my shopping cart…

    With summer coming to a close (insert 2,000 crying emojis here), your days by the water are numbered, but your seafaring style doesn’t have to be.  If you read last week’s post on statement pants, then you already know I’ve been digging sailor vibes in a big way lately.  There’s something about classic sailor-inspired details like these button-front pants and tie neck top that always get me.  If you’re eyeing all things nautical, check out a few more favorites below!

    Finding separates that match before your morning coffee can be a bit… daunting.  I mean, there’s something about waking up in the morning and throwing on your favorite dress that just makes life easy.  BUT!  Matching sets combine the ease of a dress with the functionality of separates, tripling the outfit options. Wear them together, wear the blouse alone with your favorite jeans, wear the skirt solo with a chunky burgundy knit…  the options are endless.  Coords like this chain link printed blouse and pleated midi skirt are among my favorite closet staples, and will definitely continue to be the hero pieces of my wardrobe this fall.

    Also worth mentioning is this beautiful burgundy mini bag, part of Tory Burch’s latest collection of handbags which is not to be missed.  If you’ve followed for a while, you know I’ve been a huge fan of the brand for years (who isn’t?) and her latest bags are particularly up my alley.  Clean lines, classic jewel tones, and always the perfect marriage of form and function—these beauties were at the top of my fall wishlist.  I’m also SWOONING over the larger version which comes in the same three perfect colors (burgundy, black and navy) and has that timeless vintage satchel silhouette that gets me every time.  If you’re in the market for the perfect work to weekend, wear-everywhere bag, this just might be the winner.

    By now you know that Express is one of my all-time favorite budget-friendly shopping destinations. I’m all about finding great investment pieces, but there’s nothing better than a bargain, especially when it comes to trendy pieces that you want to try out without making a major financial commitment.

    I recently perused the jean selection at Express which I absolutely love because (a) many of their styles come in petite and tall (yesss!!) sizing and (b) they have a seemingly-endless assortment of just about every denim style under the sun. I snagged this cool pair of high-waisted skinny jeans with contrast washing on the sides and frayed hems, and as you can see in the photos, the fit is top notch despite the friendly price tag.

    When it comes to denim trends, styles have been all over the map in recent seasons with designers showcasing everything from flares, to culottes, to skinnies, straight legs, wide legs, rips, acid washes, frayed hems, high waists, low waists and everything in between. Who knows what we’ll be wearing next season, so not having to break the bank to bring these puppies home definitely made them a no-brainer. I’m all about that guilt-free trend hopping!

    One of the questions I’m most frequently asked is how to take a look from day to night—sans the hour-long commute back to your closet.  Of course, you can always lug a duffle to work and attempt a full wardrobe change in the bathroom stall of a nearby watering hole, but unless the après-work plans involve an invitation to the Met Gala, that’s a logistical nightmare that is just too much to handle.  In real life, my favorite way to conquer day-to-night dressing doesn’t involve a wardrobe change at all, but rather involves some simple accessory changes that take no time and can completely transform your look.

    #1 // DAY DRESSING

    When it comes to this kind of fuss-free desk-to-drinks transformation, the pinch hitter is jewelry.  As you can see in today’s look, I wore these stunning LAGOS black pearl pieces for a sleek daytime look at the office, worn with a tailored black pant suit.  The LAGOS pieces, though simple, make such a striking statement and are among the most treasured pieces in my jewelry box.  Their classic, refined styles can be worn anywhere, dressed up or down, and make for the perfect finishing touch to any look—in or out of the office.

    Once the work day is over, I ditch the blazer and layer on a few more of these LAGOS pieces to amp up the look for night time.  This tassel lariat necklace layers perfectly over my simple black pearl choker, I swap out the pearl earrings for some fun tassel danglers, and pile on bracelets and bangles for an arm party that’s ready and raring to help usher a martini or two down the hatch.

    As evidenced above, I cannot get enough of LAGOS’s bracelets, which are understated enough to wear to the office, but all coordinate perfectly, transforming into amazing statement pieces when stacked together for an evening look.  Of course, all of these jewelry items take up about three square inches of space in your bag, and combined with a little red lipstick, completely revamp your look for a night out in T-3 seconds (no bathroom stall required).  Cheers!

    Finding the perfect wedding guest dress is never a walk in the park.  Add unpredictable, changing fall temperatures to the mix, and the ordeal gets so complicated you start regretting that RSVP.  At the recent wedding of my brother-in-law (and new sister-in-law!), I was lucky to find this DVF wrap maxi dress which fit the bill perfectly for me.  The dress was light and comfortable in the daytime sun, but when temperatures dropped after sunset, I was grateful for longer sleeves and covered legs.
