Today I’m mixing up a girly top-half with a hardcore bottom half. Pink, pearls and lace combined with black faux leather? What was I thinking??

Well, I was thinking that today’s Pinterest inspiration photo is a pink blazer with a lace top. I was also thinking I had a similar outfit saved on my own Pinterest board from Ask Away Blog.


So, since Wednesday is not a jeans day at my office I decided I’d go with the black faux leather pants. But putting heels with them just seemed too over-the-top for work. Hence the flats!


Adding flats to these faux leather pants and toning them down with  more feminine pieces up top makes it seem less like I’m going out to a club and more like I’m going to the office. Which I am. So I think that works out.

On a separate note, I went to the BEST wine bar on Monday night! I’ve always wanted a nice wine bar that wasn’t too loud, served items other than wine, and was close to my apartment. Turns out that there is one. At least on Monday nights Paola’s Vinum on Jefferson and Van Buren is a great spot to buy a bottle of wine and just chill with your friends.

    NO shock, I’m sure that I love this look. I have a pair of black coated jeans that are very similar, and I love the idea of dressing them up with a blazer like this… I just need a pink blazer. I’ve been looking for the right one for what seems like ages now.

      You wouldn’t think finding a pink blazer would be that difficult, but it IS! I remember searching all over until I found this one. Which is actually a bit too small (stupid H&M and their weird sizing) but I can’t find another one I like.
