Business Casual: Vest + Portofino Blouse + Sailor Pants + Socks and Heels
Hi loves! Is anyone else so glad its almost Fri-yay? I know I am! Today, I had a lot on my calendar which included a business brunch with a few members from NIMA (a company I am so excited about). While I was cooking dinner last night I put this outfit of staple pieces together for a perfect business meeting look which you can easily take from the office to dinner (which I did do). Sometimes, I do miss wearing my "work wear" so I was so happy to do this today.
As you all know, I think the Portofino blouse is a must have for any woman on the go; they are versatile and timeless. I have worn this one in particular for the third winter in a row now and love it dearly. The pants will shock you all, I bought these on the tale end of my weight gain in 2010/2011 and they are a size 12, but I paid to have them tailored in the waistline because I loved them so much and did not want to give them up. Sailor styled pants will never go out of style. NEVER.
Pretty much my whole look is a recycled look from my closet with the added accessory: the poof. I finally took the plunge and wore my little baby doll socks that yes, I bought well over 8 years ago when this socks and heels trend started. I must admit they are kind of cute right?
