This post is late for this week. Eeeeek! I started teaching Pure Barre a few weeks ago and am trying to adjust to having a teaching schedule in addition to my full-time job. I’ll do my best to stick to blogging, but my posting schedule might not be regular over the next few weeks.
It’s been chillier the past few days, so I’m pulling out all my sweaters. I bought this sweater vest several months ago and am glad that I’m finally able to wear it. It’s such a cute and easy topper to throw on to add an extra layer and pattern. I decided to wear it as part of a casual outfit here, but I think it would work great paired with skinny pants to wear to work. I might also trying belting it to see how that looks.

Sorry for the delayed post! It’s been a crazy week,and I’m struggling a bit to keep up with everything.
I’m trying to embrace the wide-leg pants and thought this white pair would be great with a black vest and stripes. I went back and forth about which shoes to wear, and I’m still not sure if I like the peep-toe ankle boots I chose, but I think it all still works. And of course I added a pop of red. Why mess with such a good combo?

I did a post on culottes in April but have yet to try any on when I’ve been shopping. I completely forgot that I had something similar in my closet already until I was going through some clothes to sell on Poshmark and came across this gray pair. I think they were technically labeled as capri pants when I bought them, but I feel like they can also fall into the culottes category. I paired them with this black tuxedo vest I found at Forever 21 for a possible workwear look. If you aren’t comfortable going sleeveless in your office (or if your office is too cold to ever consider doing so), then you could throw on a button-up shirt under the vest. As I typically do, I added a bit of color with a red purse.
