2018 Corporate Style, Pinks and Whites, Skirts, Winter Wear, Work Wear / Sunday, February 18th, 2018

Welcome back! We are more than half way through February already which is amazing. I don’t know about you, but I have felt very positive about 2018 so far! I hope yours is just as great. We are in the tail end of winter, passed lovely Valentines day with my favorite colors of whites, reds, and pinks, and¬†Punxsutawney Phil predicted six more weeks of winter. So we will keep trudging until the warmth sticks. A bit of positive news though, it is going to be 69 degrees here in NJ Tuesday and 72 on Wednesday! Who’s playing hooky with me? ūüėČ Have a wonderful week!‚ô•

I have wanted thigh high boots for a while now but have never made the plunge until this weekend, and I am so happy with it! The most exciting parts about these boots are that they were only $35 from DSW and they have a glittery heel! It’s so subtle though that it can be worn to work and probably gone unnoticed. However, if you are a bit concerned that the glittery heel is too much, they have a very similar pair without it. I am wearing my black, long sleeved American Apparel body suit with a black and white checkered skirt from H&M ($12.99), a green pea coat fromExpress, and a gray crossbody bag. You cant tell, but I most definitely am wearing nude tights with this because it is still COLD outside! BRRR!

Something about this outfit with all the snow around me made me cheery! This is actually a pale pink dress from Express that I tied up with a brown belt and matched with pale pink flats with faux pearl details. The pale pink crossbody bag is so cute with little bolts bordering the edges, and I accessorized the look with a rose gold bracelet from Express and a layered gold neckless.

I mentioned in a previous post that I am trying to add more color to my wardrobe, and this top really brightens up my closet. It is actually a bodysuit! I do typically have a problem with bodysuits because I am 5’6, and they don’t seem to manufacture bodysuits for taller girls. Therefore, it ends up looking very stretched out on me. I didn’t have that problem with this one though because it is a naturally stretchy material, so I was very comfortable in it! I paired it with a pair of legging type pants I bought from Express that appear as professional work pants but are stretchy. I believe they are only sold in stores, so I put a similar pair in the link below. I chose a black pair of sock boots that I got from DSW. If you aren’t familiar with sock boots, they are called that because they are a boot with a top that fits tightly around your ankles/legs, imitating a sock. I love them because they eliminate that awkward gap you sometimes get with regular boots.

I felt a sense of summer with this outfit, even though it kept me warm. The tank is actually white and blue, and I love the tie up detail at the bottom. I paired it with a white skirt and an off white duster cardigan. I chose my black pumps from Forever 21 to keep the business look. And of course, I couldn’t resist to throw on my white polka dotted sunnies from Target.

This was a harder look for me to get comfortable with because there’s a lot of faux leather in it. The white Madewell button up counter acts that look to keep it professional looking. However, if you would like to minimize the shine, I put some options of non faux leather boots below.

I love love love love this sweater. It was so soft and warm, but such a beautiful spring color. It’s casual with the tie up but looks sophisticated at the same time. I paired it with a simple pair of Paige Jeans and the matching pale pink flats. I chose a delicate necklace with this look because I felt like the whole look was so delicate as a whole. I would wear this to go shopping, to see some friends, for brunch….its so versatile! I will be wearing this one a lot!

Fun fact- this sweater is reversible. Meaning there is no front or back. You can have the tied up detail if you aren’t big fan of a crop, or you you can switch it up each time you wear it which is my plan. I was going for an girly athleisure with this look, pairing the pretty white sweater with a pair of black Adidas joggers. I loved pairing this with the faux leather white sock boots because it added an even cooler edge to the look. I felt bad ass!
