Put a pin in it

I’m gettin’ all fancy with the twirlin’

This outfit was directly inspired by the most popular pin in my whole Pinterest account. When I first noticed all the pins, I couldn’t figure out why, what is essentially a drive-by shot in an Urban Outfitters, was so well-liked. But having worn my own version, I totally see it now. It’s such a versatile look, it just depends on how many sundresses and blazers you have! This also infinitely expanded my work wardrobe and it lets me wear all the summer dresses I’ve been missing since starting corporate life.

Challenge Accepted

Old Navy  //  blazer H&M (similar) //  pants Old Navy  //  shoes DSW (similar)

Per a comment request (from Lauren), I paired my hot pink jeans and navy blazer. End result…love it! Great pick, Lauren, I owe you some cookies.

To make the look more office-friendly, I balanced the, let’s call it spunky-ness, of the pants with the tailored blazer and low booties. However you decide to style them, I can’t recommend enough that you go get yourself a pair of bright jeans. Whether they’re pink like mine, or in any other fun color like these, bright jeans will make any day a little happier:

Family Perks

Btis&Bows // Family Perks 003

Isn’t this the most fantastic skirt ever!? My mom surprised me when I came home this weekend with a yard or so of this great navy-and-white damask patterned fabric. Then she kicked up the awesome-meter a notch by offering to sew me a skirt (she’s the best isn’t she?). We loosely based the pattern on a paper-bag style skirt we saw at j. crew. Made it more work-friendly by sewing it more like a pencil skirt. The most comfortable pencil skirt EVER that is.

I’m so lucky to have a mom who can sew AND who works at a kick-ass fabric store here in Richmond. If you’re ever in the area, go check out Ufab.
