Suit & Tie







Blazer: Silence + Noise, Blouse: Frenchi, Shorts: Forever 21, Tie: Topshop, Hosiery: H&M, Shoes: lulus.com, Bag: Chloé, Lipgloss: Jordana Cosmetics

 So after five years or so Justin Timberlake dropped a new single this week called "Suit & Tie," and it was....okay? Kinda underwhelming, but whatever, the title was still perfect for today's post, lol! How are you guys? I hope everyone's week is going swimmingly thus far. I want to say welcome to all our new readers! I'm so delighted and humbled that you would come and take the time to read my inane ramblings, but please don't leave, I like the company!! ;) 

Anyways, today's look is my answer to the standard "workin' 9-5" get-up! I love to take something a bit classic and add some cheeky surprises to it. In this case, we have the classic white button up with a blazer and tie....except I've made sure the tie was a skinny (I really only like skinny ties, on both men and women). And instead of pants or a skirt, I'm wearing forest green leather shorts, because that's just the kind of girl I am!

I'm loving the faux leather shorts I've been finding at Forever 21. They can be matched with SO many different outfits and occasions! I have them in the green color I'm wearing here as well as in black. They're thin, light, comfortable and fit like a glove. Trust me when I say that you will turn heads in these! And I mean that in a good way ;)

I feel like a few cheeky changes add just the right amount of surprise to the humdrum normalcy of work attire. But it doesn't need to be flashy either, which is why I stuck to earthy and neutral tones. And tights/hosiery are also always great ways to balance out short hemlines, risky/bold choices, etc.

Anyways lovebugs, it's late, and I feel like I'm writing with less fluidity than usual, so I apologize for the starkly written post. I'm still going back and forth on my favorite dresses from the Golden Globe Awards last Sunday, but we'll discuss it in Friday's post when I narrow my best dressed list! See you then :)
