Happy Friday the 13th!! I find some people think this is a good luck day and others think it’s a bad luck day.¬† I have decided to wait until the end of the day to decide. ūüėČ I know it’s going to be a busy one at work which is fine with me because it will make the day go by so fast, and then Hello Weekend!

My favorite new work pants and I are back with another work outfit for you.¬† I love these Topshop tops for the office.¬† You can find it in both solids and prints.¬† The red, white, and black floral one really caught my eye.¬† It’s a print that will work across all seasons, so you can get lots of wear out of it.¬† I love the tie waist look to add a little definition to the waist.¬† The loose breezy fit makes this top pair perfectly with skinny pants and pencil skirts.¬† You can take this top to weekend by adding in skinny jeans.

The top does have a slit in the front and back.¬† I’m wearing a black camisole with this one to make it more work appropriate.¬† Also, it’s Topshop, so you will need to size up.¬† I’m wearing a US6.

I hope you all have a great weekend ahead!¬† If you are in the mood for a little sale shopping, Shopbop is having their big sale of the year!¬† You can save 20% off or 25%¬† if you spend over $500.¬† I’m planning to check out their jeans because I need a new pair, and probably the shoes because well you can never have too many shoes.¬† Thanks for stopping by ya’ll!

Hello!! How was your weekend?  We had a randomly cold weekend here.  I had to pull out my sweaters and coats.  I was not feeling it, and I ended up spending most of the weekend indoors in my coziest loungewear.

This yellow dress is a breath of fresh Spring air after our cold weekend.¬† I have been noticing a little bit more yellow out this season, and I’m really excited about it.¬† It’s a color I love to wear, but I don’t really own much of it.¬† I’m hoping to add a bit more this Spring and Summer.¬† The bold yellow of this dress was the perfect backdrop for my beaded tassel necklace.¬† I love how the different colors pop against the yellow.¬† For a more fitted look to this dress, try belting it.¬† You can pick a fun color like blue or red to contrast against the dress color.

I originally thought about pairing this outfit with neutral or brown wedges, but then I found these color-block cuties in my closet.  I love all the bright colors mixed together.  It just adds to the fun and flirty nature of the dress.  This outfit would be perfect for an afternoon sipping wine on a patio friends, a casual evening party, or a fun date night.

I found a few more yellow favorites below, and don’t forget to check out today’s Style File Link Up!¬† Ya’ll have a good week!

Happy Friday! I am so excited to share this teal floral dress with you guys.¬† I am OBSESSED with this dress.¬† It was love at first sight for sure.¬† I was immediately drawn to the gorgeous deep teal color and fun floral embroidered design on the dress.¬† But it was the sexy little cutout and slight showing of skin that really made me like this dress.¬† I feel like it’s a fun little surprise addition to the dress. Gorgeous and sophisticated in the front with a little fun and flirty in the back.

Hello ladies!!¬† I’m sharing a simple and chic work outfit idea for you today, and it features my new black work pants!¬† I have always been a huge fan of Loft for all my work pant needs, but the last pair I purchased was a little lacking in the quality department.¬† The back seam split down the length of my leg on both sides.¬† It’s the first time this has happened and everything else I buy is great quality, so I feel like I just got a bad pair.¬† It did however make me a little nervous to buy another pair from them with a back of the leg seam.

I decided to venture out and look for a new brand of work pants.¬† Since I’m petite (5’3), I really wanted to find a place that sold petite pants, so I wouldn’t need alterations.¬† My sister did a little leg work for me trying out J.Crew and Banana Republic.¬† Her winner was the Banana Republic Sloan pants.¬† Since I knew Banana had a great petite section, I checked them out first and fell in love too.¬† These pants have minimal stretching throughout the day, and so far the quality has been top notch.¬† I love that the length hits perfectly at the ankle.

I only bought one pair to give them a little test run, and I am ready to declare these my favorite new work pants.  Next time I see one of the 40 or 50% off sales at Banana Republic, I plan to buy a couple more pairs in black and another fun color or two.

Thanks for stopping by today.¬† Don’t forget to join in on the Style File Link Up fun, and have a wonderful week!
