I’m lucky that I work in an organization that is more casual than business. I don’t think I could handle it! Although I must say that a good button up oxford is a wardrobe essential– especially one with a twist like this one from Forever21!
I didn’t grab this top at first, mostly because I was doing my best to stay on budget. Then it sold out and I was so sad; I was seeing some of my favorite blogger boos looking so fly in it (I see you Joi!)! When it came back in stock however I considered it a sign from the style Gods that I needed to make it mine. I love the one shoulder cut, but the ruffles really made it for me.
I was playing in my closet a bit and decided to style it with these wide leg culottes I got from Eloquii last year. Though trends come and go, I have some pieces that I keep around for more than one season if the quality is good and I think I can push the envelope on how long they’ll be cool. These pants fit that bill. They’re great with heels, they’re great with sneakers– in other words they’re super versatile. I can’t believe I’ve gone all summer not wearing them, but I intend to make up for it in the fall (yes, after Labor Day).
I am so not looking forward to fall, but both of these pieces will transition nicely into the season.
