boss lady | olivia pope style inspiration


Who here is a fan of Scandal?

I’ll admit – I’m totally addicted and DCT can attest that I act just like this when it’s on.



Besides all the sex, deceit, power wars, and scandal {pun intended} that run rampant through every episode, I always find myself entranced by Kerry Washington a.k.a. Olivia Pope’s style.

She shows time and again that you can be a strong, fearless, boss lady and look damn good while you’re at it.

Classic sheath dress? Check. Perfectly tailored pants? Check. Deliciously luxe statement coats? Double check.

Needless to say the show is a goldmine for style inspiration.




Last weekend for the Brand Market workshop I decided to take some style cues from Olivia. Who better to inspire my outfit for a day spent with fellow boss ladies?

A soft poncho in a rich camel color layered under my go-to pumpkin pea coat was the starting point for this look.

Add that on top of a cherry red mini skirt and diamond pattern tights for my own personal touch. Then finish it off with western style ankle bootiesmy must-have booties for the season – and a classic tote.



What do you think?

Would Olivia approve?


Thanks so much for reading!




P.S. We all know how much I love me some Instagram, so I’m excited to share that I’ll be taking over DivineCaroline’s insta this coming weekend! Make sure to follow along as I have some fun adventures planned you don’t want to miss!

  1. I love pumpkin pea coat and ankle booties. Need inspiration for new Fall finds. And yes, I believe Olivia would approve!
