Pants that Pass

I hope all my U.S. readers had a Happy Independence Day. I had a fairly uneventful/ low key day. My guy and I watched the Patriot and some History Channel specials, got a delicious dinner (I also had a watermelon beer, and a raspberry summer shandy!), and watched some fireworks from a beach in East Boston. I managed to leave my camera at home, so I didn't get any pictures of my patriotic ensemble. Instead here is an outfit I wore last week while my internet was down!

This is an example of an outfit I wear on a more dressy day at work. Last week I had a lot of interviews and trainings, so I dressed up a bit more than I typicaly do. I'm going to tell you a secret. These pants are technically black denim, but I still  wear them to work outside of casual Friday, and I get away with it! I think it's because the denim is a uniform wash that comes across more like a black twill, either way I love them!

Linen Blazer: Forever 21
Black Skinnies: Old Navy
Blouse: TJMaxx last year
Shoes: Payless


  1. I love this beautiful blouse with the blazer. Very chic!

  2. So cute - love that purple blouse! And I sometimes wear pants like that to work too - totally stretching "business casual"...but until someone says something...I'm gonna keep doin' it :)
