Fierce OOTD: Striped Out and a Pop of Pink Pumps

Black Pants

Let me tell you the story behind these work pants. I bought them a few years ago during a crazy New York and Company sale and from the first time I tried them on I fell in love. However, over time they weren’t loving me back.  They got tighter and tighter, until I gained enough weight that I had to retire them to the back of the closet until I could wear them again. Fast forward to today and not only do they fit, they’re actually a little loose on me. This healthy lifestyle thing is really paying off!

Since I’m not working in an office anymore, I’m trying to find ways to breathe new life into my work wear without looking overdone.By pairing my work pants with more casual pants and fun accessories, I can come up with outfits that work outside of the office whether it’s lunch out with friends or a leisurely trip to the mall.

This shirt is another wardrobe flashback, living in the recesses of my dresser drawer until now. It fits well enough that I can even tuck it inside my pants. Man I feel confident enough to tuck any type of shirt in my pants for that matter!

You know I have to have my pop of color somewhere so I had to rock this outfit with my hot pink pumps. A nice little fashion surprise, don’t you think?
