I'm dying for Fall to officially arrive! I'm so ready to layer it up with cardigans, hoodies, boots and especially scarves! I'm like the scarf queen! About 2 years ago, a lot of my family gifted me scarves for Christmas! I guess it was obvious I'm in love with them :)
Until we start dipping into cooler temps (which we have occasionally started in the early mornings and late evenings), I'm still going to show off a little bit of skin with sleeves tops, shorts and dresses. Apparently everyone else is too with it being warm everywhere else!
Just to keep you up to date, about 4 months ago I got promoted to Regional Sales Director at my work. I have only been working with the company for 2 years now, so to get promoted in less than that amount of time is a big deal to me. I received my Masters degree in 2013 in Health Policy and Management. My goal was to work within a hospital setting with administration. It's very competitive to get in! Somehow working in sales and marketing has given the opportunity to be a leader and oversee communities in Texas. I have enjoyed what I do to be quite honest. However, one thing is for sure. Since this promotion, I'm in dire need to change up my wardrobe! I need to look the part, don't you agree?
Wearing slacks and dress shirts is all I wear. These wide leg pants for an office type setting are perfect! I would totally add a cardigan or blazer though, as my office tends to get cold. I could even pair a button down blouse to go with these trousers for a more professional look.
For a Night Out
If you are bold, I would try a crop top to go with these wide leg pants! If not, a racer back like the one I'm wearing is great for going out. However I would probably switch to open toe shoes versus closed toe. They are more fun for a night out! I also recommend wearing color such as a bright blue, or red with a feminine or cut out top (i.e. cold shoulder tops).
For a Special Event
I can definitely see myself wearing these trouser pants with a lace crop top, shiny statement necklace, bangles, and sparkly stud earrings! Crop tops don't necessarily mean that it'll show off your mid-section. Due to these trouser pants also being high waisted, chances are, you will not show off your bare mid-section, but will show off your tiny waist the trousers will provide!
Don't mind the side bra lol.
I decided to add this tribal crossbody bag to add some structure and lines to this look. I love that this bag has a hint of fringe...just the right amount. :) For a work setting, definitely go with a bigger tote bag for more room to throw snacks, a water bottle, etc. For a night out or special event, switch it out for a clutch or crossbody bag. You can't go wrong!
Shop the look!
Next week is my birthday! Hope you can celebrate with me <3 Happy Wednesday!
