I was at the mall with Frank in search for a pair of red pants…for him. Yes, he’s not only amazing, but stylish too 🙂 As soon as we walked into J Crew, I spotted these beauties. Frank’s pants took a back seat for a second. As much as I swore I wouldn’t buy anything full price anymore, I just couldn’t resist taking these striped beauties home. To “even” things out, I bought a few other items on sale…that counts, right?
I LOVE anything in stripes. Tell me, is there any specific pattern that makes you break your shopping rules?

I totally forgot I didn’t post my outfits while in Cancun. We were only there for a short time, so I only have a couple to share with you. While I love the short-with-heels trend, sometimes I feel like I’m too old to wear them. (May just be the uber conservative in me, I need to step outside my comfort zone) I decided to try them out while on vacay. Afterall, no one really knows me or my age there 🙂
Tell me, how do you feel about shorts with heels?
Top: F21, Shorts: H&M (last year); Shoes: Seychelles; Clutch: Jason Wu; Necklace: DIY
Top and Shorts: Zara; Shoes: LC for Kohls ; Clutch: F21
This dress is an oldie but goodie. I purchased it on a whim while having drinks at a W hotel. I think the drinks helped the decision 🙂 I love it because I can dress it up or down. I decided to keep it casual to go for ice cream with Frank.

Bright pants are a bit tricky for the office. I wouldn’t recommend them for a very strict business environment. If you’re office is a bit laid back, here are my tips for wearing bright pants.
First, I would stay away from prints. Stick to a solid color, blue, green or red (I own them all). Pair them with a tailored blazer. I picked a dark blue to add some contrast and to tone down the bright green. I was considering wearing a white or tan blouse, however I found this top in the back of my closet and loved the monochromatic look it created. Finish the look with a pair of neutral shoes. I didn’t wear the necklace or bracelet to the office, a bit too much for me. I added it later in the day for dinner with friends.
Tell me, would you wear bright pants to the office?
