OUTFIT EFFORTS

IMG_5305 editedIMG_5319 editedIMG_5331 editedIMG_5383 editedIMG_5382 editedIMG_5388 editedDetails: Zara wide leg white cropped pants, here | Navy and pink plaid crop top, (locally bought) similar here | Ann Taylor pumps (old), similar here |

I used to be very meticulous with my outfit selection for work, but with an hour and a half commute and the sticky hot train rides I’d rather not subject my best looks to that kind of torture. Don’t get me wrong, it’s important to dress well and make an impression, and I know I know “what’s the point in having nice clothes if you don’t wear it?” Which is why I’m turning over a new leaf, by starting off this Monday with a sophisticated look—one of my favorites. This navy crop top with subtle hot pink accents is an oldie but goodie, I purchased it at a boutique near my town last year, and I’ve been wearing it ever since. The lace details make it unique and add a certain femininity that I love. These ivory wide leg cropped pants from Zara were a spring buy and while they’re definitely a comfortable fit, the material is a bit heavier than these scorching temps permit—nothing too unmanageable though.  Now that I have my Monday work wear down, that’s half the battle right?

Happy Monday!

SUMMER UNI

DSC_0495 editedDSC_0510 editedDSC_0516 editedDSC_0508 editedDSC_0525 editedDetails: UNIQLO jogger pants in natural, here  | Abercrombie & Fitch high neck white crop tank, here  | Lulu’s espadrille wedges, here |

I’ve finally found my summer work uniform, it took some time—mostly because I couldn’t find the right pant. Since the jogger pant  surfaced as a significant trend, I’ve been on a mission to find a well fitted pair (specifically for the summer months). Not to mention, someone very rude told me that in order to wear jogger pants you MUST be “absolutely stunningly beautiful and/or extremely tall and thin.” That poor nameless and misinformed sap underestimated me. I will admit, the jogger pant is difficult for the vertically challenged. Take it from me, someone whose lived a life of rolled up and cuffed under pants for far too long. So you can imagine my surprise when I walked into UNIQLO and met my match, (no tailor required). They are THE perfect fit, and regardless of your height they just work. The elastic tapered bottom makes them easy to fit and ‘scrunch up’ if necessary (don’t worry it’s not) and the top half is well fitted, more so than any other pair I’ve come across. Often times with ‘scrunching up’ comes a puffy, unflattering top half, but that doesn’t exist with these. So in between sporting sundresses and shorts I will be able to combat an ice box office AND look cute with my newly loved joggers.
