...or something. Happy Monday.
Outfit details: Pants, Anthropologie. Brown tee, Banana. Cream cardi, Banana. Shoes, Stuart Weitzman (they are ruby red patent leather, but you can't see them)
Why it works: The pants are tailored and pinstriped, keeping them fairly conservative for the office. The cardigan dresses up the tee and pulls some attention to my (non-existent) waist.
What it needs: this outfit actually needs accessories, big time. I was too rushed this AM to be creative, but I think a long, delicate necklace or some chunk bangles would work. My ears aren't pierced, but earrings would go a long way.
Dress it up: For a more conservative setting, you could do a button-down dress shirt or cover the tee with a structured jacket.
Dress it down: take off the cardigan, add a leather bomber jacket and some necklaces.
What do you think? I'm a fan of constructive criticism and flagrant flattery.
P.S. Nordstrom's current Anniversary Sale is AMAZING. Get your arses over there.
