Outfit: Workday Wednesday

This week I challenged myself to move away from skirts and dresses and find an outfit that I usually wouldn't gravitate towards. In the past I have had a hard time finding outfits that were both flattering on my body and incorporated pants.  I chose to wear a cropped pair of black slacks from Banana Republic that I feel work well with my figure when paired with the right items. To lengthen my legs and draw attention away from my hips I added some fun pumps and a long blouse. Sparkly earrings also add to the glamour of the outfit. 

Finding these pants took a lot of effort and time. Choosing pieces that fit and flatter is essential to an items longevity in your wardrobe. I am always reminded of this fact when I look at my mother's closet. She has many items that are older than Maddie and me but, because of the quality and fit of the items they continue to look great and in style.
