Three vibrant colors in these photos today – green, red and yellow (almost an orange)! You would think that it would be too much (theoretically) but I really love how they contrast each other. The green background was a lucky accident as we were shooting something else here that day and because I always have a bunch of clothes in the trunk of our car, I put this outfit together super quickly and voila! Love when that happens!


Mixing of dressy and casual styles is one of my favorite things to do! The sweatshirt being that casual factor and dressy pants being that more elegant piece here. Even without the green background, I think I would still really enjoy the red in the sweatshirt contrasting with the orange in the pants.


These pants are obviously perfect for the office and think about how fun you might feel wearing them even with the simplest button down shirt! I wanted to show you a more casual way to wear these here, but even if I only wore them to the office, I would still get my money’s worth. I love that the length hits right above the ankle and the tiny slit at the bottom is super cute too! The slimmer leg is also something I enjoy about these as they are almost like skinny pants to me! I am linking them right below; they are currently on major sale ($24!) so be sure to check them out!


Wearing: Asos pants (guys, only $24! Also, similar here); Only sweatshirt (also similar here and here); Celine peep toe booties; Pulicati bag.

    Thank you Tara! They really are! Great alternative to plain old black dressy pants for sure!
