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:

First, please excuse the HORRENDOUS faces I’m making here. It was 80+ degrees and I’m still without a tripod and remote (two crucial items for the aspiring style blogger living alone). I didn’t have the patience to take enough shots to compensate for, as they call it on the internet, Derpy Face.

All self-deprecation aside, this was a nice, breezy outfit for a classically steamy Richmond summer day. I’m really enjoying pairing billowy tops with fitted pencil skirts for work. It gives me the circulation I need while still looking classy. It’s always crucial to wear something body-conscious when wearing lots of volume on top. You could skip the skirt and wear your skinniest jeans for a more casual take on this look. And for a little extra oomph! wearing your sleekest, tallest heels help keep your lower half looking long and lean.

And for all of you in the central east coast area, here’s a look at what summer’s going to be like.
