Patriotic Business

Either I just love a red/white/blue combo or I’m feeling pretty patriotic this week, because I can’t seem to stay away from wearing some variation of these colors whether its stripes or pairing an ikat print top like this with a navy skirt.

On Monday, I posted pictures of a semi-casual outfit so I thought I’d continue along the same color scheme and post both a business wear and going-out ensemble (tomorrow’s post).

Notice, that I’m wearing four essential items – nude heels, white pants, a blazer and a skinny belt. I never tire of this blazer which is why you’ve seen it quite often and those white pants are not going anywhere for awhile. I absolutely love them because they’re made out a linen material but have a thin lining so it isn’t see-through; they’re great for business and casual wear. Banana Republic happens to be one of my favorite places for pants. They’re style always brings about a sophisticated and tailored look and the material is always nice and durable. I’ve had some pairs for over 6 years now and they still look as fantastic as they did when I first bought them and I’ve worn them hundreds of times.

On a side note, I love these glasses – they remind me of my Dad and the thick framed glasses he used to wear back in the 80s. The more I look at the picture the more I notice that I’m a spitting image of him. Love it!
