OOTD 2.5.18: Heart Print Blouse and Cropped Dress Slacks

black high waist dress slacks and a heart print blouse

Heart Printed Blouse (comes in so many prints and colors!) | High Waist Black Pants (under $100!) | Similar Beige Pumps | Gold Statement Earrings | Pink Leather Watch | $20 Marble iPhone Case | Rose Gold Popsocket

This heart printed blouse is one of those blouses that every business woman has in her closet. It’s easy to tuck into any kind of bottom (including dress slacks) and it won’t leave those awkward bumps. It has a tasteful v-neck and a great fit that makes it office appropriate without being boring. I often wear tops like this under my suits to interviews even for a little something different! This heart print is very subtle but if you’re not a pink kind of girl, it comes in so many different colors and prints. It’s definitely more on the pricey end but it’s an investment you’ll have in your closet for years to come.

I had my corporate girls in mind when I bought these high waisted pants! I love that they are different than the regular business pant. I always have such a difficult time finding great slacks, which is partly why I always stick to jeans. However, I really like the high waist and that you can tie the belt around the waist. You can even swap it out for a leather belt if you wanted to make more of a contrast between the belt and the pants. They’re under $100 which I feel is so rare for good quality dress slacks.

I’m wearing these beige pumps which are designer but don’t forget that these are on sale! I’ve linked to a similar and more affordable pair because I think of designer pumps more as something you have later in your career – not fresh out of college. You’ll notice that I wear my Sam Edelman ones most of the time because they are more affordable and more comfortable too. With these pants, I wanted a little extra height and these are the only other beige ones I have!

PS. I added a new workwear shop on the blog yesterday so if you’re looking for more affordable office wardrobe essentials, check it out!

August Instagram Round Up (15 Outfits)

It’s been a minute since my last Instagram Round Up! I feel like I’ve just had too much to talk about for the last couple months! Picking them up again by rounding up the month of August. Here are the 15 most popular posts (and they are all shoppable)!

Best thermal for fall

This thermal is definitely something I’ll be living in this fall! I talked about this on Instagram Stories but I wore last year’s version every single week. It’s great for layering under sweaters, jackets, or even just wearing alone. It comes in 4 different colors and has thumb holes plus is reasonably priced for such a great basic. I’ve also had so much fun styling these floral high waisted jeans. You can see another outfit styled here!
