While most people have a "work uniform" and I am not talking about the kind mandated by some employers, I am talking about the routine outfit you wear all the time, I am not that girl. While it's important to me to look professional, I won't be caught wearing the same boring outfits every week. On a weekly basis I can be seen wearing anything that reflects my personal style, which I tend to describe as "chic," from a floral dress with a light cardigan, ankle pants with a cute blouse, an outfit like the one above or jeans with whatever choice of blouse I am feeling that day, paired with our without a blazer or cardigan.

How would you describe your personal style?

Happy Friday! I hope you're all having a wonderful evening and looking forward to the weekend as much as I am. Here's a quick post of what I wore to work last Friday. While I love wearing heels, I also love a cute pair of flats and these Target leopard flats are one of my favorites. I decided to pair it with this oxblood blazer, also from Target and a statement necklace. This look can easily be transitioned for an evening out, by swapping out the flats for a pair of strappy heels / sandals. Wishing you all a fantastic weekend. xo

BOYFRIEND JEANS & A TEE

Gap boyfriend jeans
H&M Orange v neck tee
Zara reversible tote
Michael Kors Rose gold watch
Outfit details: Tee: H&M / Jeans: Gap (similar here & here) / Sandals: Dolce Vita (sold out) similar / Handbag: Zara / Necklace: Boutique

Who loves boyfriend jeans as much as I do? There's something about them, that given the chance, I'll wear them at least twice a week. This pair from Gap is my absolute favorite, though I don't wear them enough. They can be dressed up or down and still be sexy. I last wore them in this post which was more of a dressed up look. How do you wear your boyfriend jeans?

Ps. I am so happy with my shorter hair, I was undecided at first but I am so glad I went ahead and cut it :-)

LAVENDER & RED

Since I live on a tropical island, my work wear has changed drastically from when I lived in the US; for obvious reasons. I am usually in the office before 8am, and on a good day I leave at 4:30, on a not so good day, I leave at 6:00pm.
Express Purple Essential Shirt
Kate Spade black Tote
 One key element of my personal style is comfort. I refuse to wear anything that's not comfortable, and that's where Express shirts come in, I love their Essential Shirts, they are so comfortable, soft and feminine and can be worn with nice work trousers, jeans or a skirt. I never plan ahead, when it comes to what I'm wearing, I usually go with whatever I'm feeling and this skirt and shirt was the perfect marriage of color and a reflection of my work style.
