Hello everyone! I'm so sorry it has been over a week since I have posted but I have been so extremely busy between work & taking my licensing exam. But on the bright side I PASSED! Yay! Finally I get to start my big girl job! I have never been so excited for anything in my life!
Anyway, since I will be going into a business oriented career I of course had to go shopping for some adorable business attire! I'm going to show you some of my favorite things I got(:
POP of Color:
This outfit it really simple but eye catching. The bright blue with the Grey colors really make the whole thing POP. Plus by adding a bold necklace it just make it more appealing and it give it that extra "UMPH"
Okay, so I'm absolutely in love with this top! Not only is the classic Portofino from express great for any business wardrobe but one with pink pineapples on it just screams my name! This is the perfect summer business styled top! I think it just fits my personality perfectly! I bought this top from Express & it's currently on clearance!
As you might have noticed, I LOVE anything black and white that has a simple pattern! Black and white are my "go-to" colors! I mean they are probably everyone's because they go with anything, but when I say they're my "go-to" I literally mean like 70% of my wardrobe consists of black & white clothing. Anyway, I love mixing patterns but sometimes it can be dangerous. Mixing 3+ patterns can make your outfit just look way too mix matched. Plus matching one color polka dots with another color polka dots is a N O! That goes for any pattern! Just be carful when doing mixing because it can look really awesome or look not so awesome. But I mixed my black & white pattern top with my black and white tote. This is a simple patter mix but it looks appealing instead of a hot mess.
Pink & Pearls:
Okay, so by now you should know how IN LOVE I am with blushes & pinks. These are neutrals to me. I love matching my light pink tops with more tan or beige colored jewelry or bottoms. I always pair my neutral colored pearls with my pinks because they just blend so well together. I typically try to stay away from whites because light pink and white are so close it could just look bad together. Some light pinks & whites can look really nice but it usually depends upon the style of the outfit and how light your pink really is to know of it looks good together.
A Dash of Sparkles:
So I am a total sparkle lover (not as bad as I use to be) but I'm always drawn to sparkly clothing! I've learned through the years though that there is a huge line between tacky looking sparkles and good quality sparkles. I know it probably sounds crazy but it's true. I use to be sparkle obsessed and anything with sparkles I would have to have my hands on. Now I am very picky about what I buy that has sparkles. I found this top from Express after Christmas and right now it's on clearance. I love it because it has that sparkle sequin look to it but it's not a tacky looking sparkle. It looks very " adultish" I guess you could say. I love it with this blazer I got from Macy's because the white obviously goes with it but also because it looks good with the polka dots. I matched my polka dot sleeves with the sequins because it just makes the outfit look more girly and eye appealing than a regular basic top would. I guess it gives it an extra "UMPH" as well as my bold necklace did to my outfit above.
I hope you all have a wonderful summer and keep checking in for more posts now that I have time to actually post(haha) I have some big ideas for posts, now I have time to actually do them!(: remember to #dailyelliestlye on pictures you'd like to be featured on my homepage!
