all business.

a work outfit utilizing a bunch of old items:
  • my one and only favorite pencil skirt.
  • sometimes you find a gem at f21...this top was one of them. maybe it's the ruffles. maybe it's the round buttons. people always comment on it,
    and i always feel good in it. win.
  • first bought these shoes in brown. they were so comfortable, i bought it a few months later in black. unfortunately, they are a bit more stiff than the brown.
  • needed a briefcase type bag to hold my folders, notepads, tape measure, and camera when i go to a jobsite. white isn't the best color for
    construction sites...but neither is this outfit.

(ring, JGOOD)
mom's homemade energy bars...
(skirt, bcbg; shoes, nine west; bag, the sak)

The top is grogeous, so classy. I adore the combination of black and white. It inspires me to try a black & white combination again soon.

I love how clean this outfit is! The ruffles really make that top! And I can't believe it's from F21! Also, the little details in the back of the shoe are just adorable!

Meri said...

you're right- it is a "win" of a top. I like the border on the ruffles. I love a clothing item or accessory that is like a "go to" item to boost confidence!

You look so chic! I am a sucker for a good pencil skirt, to the point that I even added two maternity pencil skirts to my wardrobe for this round of pregnancy. I think they can make even my baby belly look polished/put together :)
