TRAVEL-FRIENDLY WORKWEAR BY M.M.LAFLEUR
As a busy professional woman who travels frequently for my job, I am always looking for tailored and professional work-appropriate pieces. I work in a male-dominated field, and I have always known that for a woman to be treated seriously in the workplace she has to dress professionally. When you are well-dressed with a polished style at work people will definitely take notice! Yet it can be incredibly time consuming to be able to find stylish yet versatile, work-appropriate pieces. And this is especially true when you are looking for pieces that are easy to pack in a suitcase, and will still look nice when you reach your destination. What professional woman has the kind of time needed to truly create the perfect professional look? I know I don’t!
This is where M.M.LaFleur has found their place in the fashion world. M.M.LaFleur was created by busy professional women who understand the needs of a busy professional woman who is on the go. Their core philosophy is “When women succeed in the workplace, the world becomes a better place,” and they truly mean it. Their goal is to revolutionize workwear by making it not only tailored and polished, but functional as well. They completely understand how to bring style and substance together in harmony, and they give you all the assistance you need to find the right office-friendly pieces for your busy life. I had the pleasure of trying their pieces two years ago (see this post), and I have been sold on their products ever since that time! You can shop M.M.LaFleur workwear pieces both in-store and online, and you will find that quality and craftsmanship is impeccable. Their pieces are an investment, but you will be able to wear them over and over again for years to come.
M.M.Lafleur Up Up and Away Collection
Professional women who travel can now rejoice! I distinctly remember the struggles of packing my suit for interviews, only to be dismayed when they were completely wrinkled once I arrived at my destination. It became necessary to pack a steamer, or make sure the hotel had an iron. But now with the new Up Up and Away collection, worry no longer! M.M.LaFleur’s latest curated collection features travel-friendly pieces that are machine-washable, packable, and most-importantly wrinkle resistant. This new collection features suiting perfect for that important meeting, as well as more casual pieces that you can sit back and relax in, yet you can still maintain a professional look.
M.M.Lafleur Foster Pants
I cannot say enough positive things about these pants (see where I wore them here). Black pants are such a wardrobe staple piece, but it can be so hard to find a decent pair that truly fits well. These Foster Pants are made of a thick Italian-cotton blend that is structured yet has just the right amount of stretch. These pants look fantastic, yet they are just as comfortable as your favorite leggings. They are machine washable and definitely packable. And I have said before, what I love most about them they even have a concealed button in the hem, which is perfect for a petite woman like myself. It was such a pleasant surprise to discover the button, after I thought for sure I’d have to have them hemmed. I am wearing my typical size 2 here and they fit perfectly.
M.M.LaFleur Moreland Jacket
If there is one workwear essential you need in your closet, it is a classic black blazer. I can tell you I have been on so many job interviews in my career as a physician, and I’ve never been turned down for a job. But in each interview I definitely dressed for the part. It is so important to present the best version of yourself. and be confident in the interview. Look them in the eye, stand tall, and give a firm handshake. When I interview applicants myself the first thing I am assessing is whether or not they dress appropriately. The proper attire makes all the difference in the world! And this travel-friendly Moreland jacket is just what you need for the big day. This blazer is polished yet comfortable, and is perfect for that all important job interview or business meeting. Yet at the same time this jacket is machine-washable and wrinkle-resistant. And when you take it off it even comes with a nice little bag that makes it easy to put back into your suitcase. This blazer does run a bit large, so I recommend sizing down one size, especially if you are small-chested.
Casual Yet Professional Workwear Pieces
More often than not my “uniform” at work is a nice pair of slacks and a tailored top. And once the colder weather arrives you will definitely see me in a sweater or cardigan. M.M.LaFleur has so many pieces that work for this situation, and many of these pieces are travel-friendly as well. From tops, to cardigans and sweaters, and tailored pants, you can definitely find a look that works for everyday wear, and is designed to wash and wear over and over again!
M.M.LaFleur Graham Kimono
I love, love, love everything about this stylish yet free-flowing Graham kimono. The steely grey color is great for fall, yet is neutral enough to wear throughout the seasons. And the sheer ribbed knit adds a graceful touch to any outfit. You can wear it open as I am showing you here, or you can tie it in a loose knot at the side for a more casual look. This is definitely a cardigan I will be wearing on repeat at the office, and it is travel-friendly too!
M.M.LaFleur Oshima Pants
Much like the Foster pants, the Oshima pants are made from a thick yet super-stretchy Italian blend that won’t wrinkle or sag. They are perfect for everyday wear, yet they are tailored enough to wear with a blazer when you need a more formal look. I am wearing the color “Monsoon” which is an earthy grey-green color. They also come in black and navy. These pants are petite-friendly (they did not require hemming on me) and I like the flared hem at the ankle. And I love that they require no ironing!
Dresses You Can Wear In a Room Full of Suits
As I mentioned, I work in a male-dominated field, which means I will often walk in to a room full of suits. However as a woman, wearing a suit isn’t always practical. With M.M.LaFleur, you can readily find a simple yet, stylish and sophisticated dress for a professional look that will rival any suiting you could wear. And again so many are packable, which means you will have just what you need on your next business trip.
M.M.LaFleur Etsuko Dress
One of my favorite office-friendly dresses from M.M.LaFleur is the Etsuko dress. This dress is refined yet womanly, and it works well for the office and into the evening. And I love that it comes with a belt! This is the kind of dress that will never go out of style, and is one of those pieces you will want to keep in your closet for years.
No detail is spared in the design of this dress! The square neckline is distinctively M.M.LaFleur. With elbow-length sleeves, useful pockets, this flattering form-fitting sheath dress works for just about every body type. The dress is petite-friendly, as it falls just above the knees. I am wearing my typical size 2, and I probably could have gone down a size.
The addition of timeless pearls a perfect addition to this dress. The overall look is decidedly modern though, and is perfect for a day at the office. It works for the daytime and into the evening. And it is machine-washable too!
So if you are someone who travels frequently as a doctor, attorney, finance professional or just someone who appreciates timeless style and impeccable quality, the M.M.LaFleur Up Up and Away collection made is for you! Their pieces are an investment, however at the same time these are pieces that you can wear over and over again, and they will stand the test of time!
