It has been 8 months since I have had to "dress up" for work. For 8 long years my closet consisted of slacks, pencil skirts, blazers and cardigans. I tried to find ways to "sass" up my work look. Most of those ways included accessories and shoes. Not working in a corporate setting anymore has left me longing for some of my old clothes. So I decided to dress up. Kind of.
These black pants have been the best pair of pants I have ever bought. I own them in this ankle length and also own them in long so I have two different looks AND can wear flats or heels. I tend to do this with a lot of my pants since I like my pants to graze the floor when wearing heels. Speaking of heels...my dear blogging buddy, Megan of The Frugalista Diaries, was so kind to get me these AMAZING metallic and snake print platform pumps from her Target in Florida. I have not seen them in CA and I pretty much died when I saw them on her post. I have a feeling these babies will get a lot of wear. I pulled out my snake print skinny belt to compliment the snakeskin in the shoes (and to hold up my pants). The last thing I picked was my blouse. I was going to wear one of my printed cardi's but then saw this top and decided to keep the outfit neutral. It is an eggshell color with pleats and a bow (I am not super girly and like it untied). I tucked in the front half to show off the belt, added a statement necklace and called it a look!
Ladylike. Kind of.
