Now that March is coming to an end, we wanted to kick off the start of the new week by recapping all our favourite Style Nine to Five articles from the week prior, just to ensure we’re all on the same page when it comes to the world of SNTF fashion.

If you’re looking to bring the embroidered trend onto your spring outwear, our embroidered jacket picks are sure to get you swooning! Read the full post here.
