smart fashion for the ambitious woman
There are only two ways to go for a Hump Day outfit: big or home. I'm only human, so I normally go for the latter but today, I went for it. My office's business casual carte blanche supplied the final ingredient. Sadly, I only have some cheeky elevator photos as visual aids, but I think you'll get the gist. (An aside: once I am no longer broke AF I'll get back to PA and see my personal Patrick Demarchelier and old friend Ally, and/or find a budding photographer here in DC. Soon, my pretties, soon.)
I found these pants in Nordstrom Rack after trying literally every pair of pants in the store. (Not an exaggeration.) I've never found dress trousers that fit so well and gave me that Olivia Pope/ Nessa Stein realness that I dream of. The brand is Sejour and they had quite a few styles and sizes, so if you're perpetually in search of trousers like I am, I highly recommend getting down to your nearest Nordstrom Rack and taking a look around. They don't catalog on their website, so you just have to roll up your sleeves and get down there. The bag and shoes are my trusty standbys, Calvin Klein Cirilla, and Tumi Lucca City Tote, the denim jacket and shirt are both Old Navy and have truly seen some sh*t, and the scarf is an old find that has been in every country and situation that I have. I'll take this opportunity to state the obvious: even though I love to shop, I blog for women like me who need new ways to wear the things they already have and love. All the outfit repeaters in the place say yeah.
