Very Berry and Bright

Oh my gosh, y’all. I wore pants. To work.

J.Crew cafe capri work wear

Are you surprised? Yea, me too.

Blazer with cafe Capri

Blazer: Madewell (on the cheap), Pants: J.Crew Cafe Capri, Top: Merona, Necklace: J. Crew (on the cheap!), Shoes: J.Crew Valentina Pump, Headband: Old Navy (similar)

Maybe it was the bright berry color and slim fit, but these Cafe Capris made me feel ladylike and feminine. Plus adding a touch of lace made me almost forget about my pencil skirt obsession.

Now that I broke my skirt streak, I’m ready to do it again, especially since I picked up some more fun pants from the J.Crew warehouse over the weekend. This may be premature, but consider me a convert.

When it comes to work wear, do you stick to skirts and dresses or are you all about the trousers?

    Wow, I love those pants! I should really try a bold color like that this season:-) For work I usually stick with trousers during the winter (I do a lot of walking and it gets COLD in NYC!), but love it when the weather warms up in May and I can comfortably shift back to cute dresses and skirts.

    Pants or not, you look gorgeous Lauren! If you’re going to wear pants, then you picked the right color! And of course, I’m completely smitten with your necklace – love the color!

    So pretty! (and I’m jealous that you can wear that without the winter boots and jacket this time of year!)

    I used to be half and half for pants/dresses when I worked. Now that I’m at uni full-time, I just wear jeans and layered tops.

    I NEVER wear pants to work… I think if I had some cute berry colored ones I might though!! These are so cute!!

    You are so stinking cute! I love those pants – they are perfect for a day at the office without being drab. I’m also in love with those beautiful pink heels!
