March 26th, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

One of the reasons I was looking forward to spring, was because I was excited about having new options for pants.

When I saw these cute cropped pink pants at Nordstrom’s, I had to have them.

I’ve decided to pair them with this cute blue and white striped shirt and then topped it with my denim jacket.

On the right you can see how originally I paired this striped shirt with my khaki pants. While there is nothing wrong with this look- these pants seem a little boring- it’s a little ‘too safe’.

Why not have a little fun while getting dressed? To me, these pink pants scream ‘fun’!

They remind me of something Barbie would have worn… oh wait, that might not be a good thing? Oh well!

I’m wearing them anyway! :) Linking up with Glamamom for Monday Mingle!

Goofy pose, I know, but I’m trying to change things up a bit! Plus, I wanted to show off my cute leopard flats- they are so much more fun than the black flats on the right!

March 12, 80’s Power Suit- Not!


I’ve shown an 80’s power suit once before, but they are so bad I had to show it again. 

I’m not trying to be mean, but if you’re wearing suits that are ill fitting and with shoulder pads, it’s time to donate those to the Goodwill.

An alternative to the 80’s power suit is a dress with a fitted blazer over it.

If you find the right style for your figure, dresses are very flattering. Plus, it makes for such an easy outfit. No worrying about matching top and bottom- it’s done for you!

My problem with dresses is that I used to think they were only for special occasions (evening events). Not any more!

For example:

This is one of my favorite dresses.  The fabric is soft, warm and incredibly comfortable. Plus, I’m always a fan of stripes and I love the long sleeves.

To make it more work appropriate, I’ve added a grey flannel blazer that ties at the waist (which helps define my shape).  Then, to give the entire outfit a burst of color (and in a nod to spring, which I hope is on it’s way), I’ve added this bright Stella and Dot necklace.

It’s Monday, so that means Monday Mingle, click here to see some other great sites!

I now look professional, put together and stylish. Now, off to work!

This dress can stand on it's own, but paired with the blazer it now looks professional.

March 7th- Jeans at Work!

Even though I’m working today- I’ve chosen to wear jeans. Depending on the atmosphere of your office, sometimes jeans can be appropriate.

For my job (marketing), these jeans work since they look like dress pants. The fit is not too tight, the wash is very dark and I can wear them with heels (which dresses them up a bit).

On the right I’m showing them paired with this matronly buttoned up cardigan (don’t get me wrong, I’ve actually worn this with other outfits and liked it- but here it just is too plain). Plus, I have on these boring black square toed boots. Blah!

On the left I have replaced the boots with my pointy toed snakeskin heels. I am not planning on doing much walking today, and most of my morning will be spent sitting indoors, so I’ve decided to go with heels.

For my top I have on this loose white tank and this pretty, gold shimmery jacket that I love! I bought this at JC Penny, and I think it is really cool. I always love dressing in 3’s and so paired with the tank and the necklace, I think it completes the look.

It’s Wednesday, so I’ve hooked up with The Pleated Poppy! Also, don’t forget to vote by clicking on the link above right! (every vote counts! I’m 2 votes away from the #8 spot!) Thanks!

The jacket gives the outfit a more professional look- perfect for work! Looking at the photos, I wish my necklace hung down a little lower. I'm going to switch this one out for a longer pendant.
