Today's Everyday Fashion: Guest Post
Hi everyone! I'm so excited to be guest blogging for J while she is on her mission trip to Africa! J's blog is one of the first blogs I started reading before I started mine, and I continue to read it for the great inspirational outfits she puts together! Thanks so much to J for having me blog while she's gone, and thank you guys for reading! Feel free to stop by my blog Twelve by Six and say hello!
I'm constantly on the lookout for inspiring work wear outfits because I work in a professional office where the usual outfits are black, drab, and/or boring. I immediately loved this unconventional look that I came across in a Nordstrom email because it's different but still work-friendly. The rusty orange colored pants are unusual yet classy, and I absolutely loved the silky shirt and nude pumps with it! This outfit is so comfortable and perfect for the hot summer months because of the cropped pants and breezy shirt, and the layered cardigan is perfect for offices that turn the air conditioner to arctic levels. I think the entire outfit will transition well into fall too - the rusty orange color is a great fall tone, and I can easily layer a heavier sweater and scarf and swap in boots for the heels. I usually wear jewelry or accessories with my outfits, but this one seemed so simple and chic on its own that I actually enjoyed letting the clothes speak for themselves!
