working woman

My work wardrobe is much more subdued and refined than my off-the-clock ensembles. For the office, I tend to shy away from anything too trendy and gravitate toward soft, yet polished silhouettes that complement my body type. You won't see me drowning in boxy pinstripe suits or clunky knit sweaters. 

My go-to trousers for the office are the Essential Skinny Ankle Pants in Marisa Fit from LOFT. I own four pairs and can attest that these are the real deal. They are super comfortable, oh-so flattering, and go with pretty much everything. They are definitely a must for any working woman's wardrobe. And the best part? They are currently 40% off! 

To soften up these structured pants, I wore a sheer beige blouse with a solid black tank top underneath. Since it's a button-up, this piece is office-appropriate, but its loose and flowy fit gives it an overall playful appeal. 

Black heels and gorgeous jewelry from one of my all-time faves, JES Design Studio, complete the look. I'm particularly obsessed with this bracelet — such a statement-maker! I love how the bold rutilated quartz stone stands out against the classic brass cuff. The matching earrings really elevate this look because the colors work together so well. This palette can pair perfectly with virtually anything. I will be wearing these beauties over and over again!
