Lookbook: Belted

Nothing too special, just what I wore to work. Being in my position and department, we need to be the best representation of our company for our employees so even though we have no dress code, I very rarely dress casual for work. Although I do wear jeans to work on occasion, I dress it up so it's not too casual. Not to say that when I'm not at work I dress super casual because I don't. Me and casual just don't do well. (when I wear sneakers I end up tripping and hurting myself way more than when I'm in 4 inch heels!)

What I'm Wearing:
Jacket: Trovata
Shirt: Splendid
Trousers: Zara
Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Belt: Nordstrom

I love this Trovata jacket, it is so comfy and cute. The inside is lined like a sweatshirt so it's really warm. I don't tend to wear it a lot because it's a bit bulky so can make me look chunkier so that's why I belted it today to give me some shape. I love the little puff sleeves and the pleating. I only found out about Trovata from my husband who owns a lot of their clothes. They make gorgeous men's clothing and never knew they made a womens line until I came across it while shopping at a boutique in Seattle.

I tend to spend a lot of money on pants that I wear to work. I've tried to buy some at Forever 21 and like stores but I hate how they never sit right and the material is always wrong. I'd rather drop $200 on a nice pair of trousers than $20 for a pair that don't fit properly. However, the one exception to this rule is these pair of trousers I got at Zara. They are a perfect straight leg trouser and although I have a ton of other black trousers (that cost way more) I highly favor these ones. It's just one of those rare finds and if it works, then it just works!

  9. CC - I do get a lot of my work pants at BR. The petite size fits me pretty well!

    JGeb - actually I am jealous too. We have no Zara anywhere near us! I always stop by a Zara when I travel. I actually got those pants when I was in Cannes, France!

  11. I'm the same with jeans. With my body type, the cheaper brands just seem to be made for curvier body type making me look like I have flaps/wings of extra fabric on my hips! gorgeous as usual! love the gray and red color combo.

  21. You always look so fabulous! I work from home, so it takes some intense motivation to be put together. However, if you need recommendations for the best yoga pants, I am so your girl. ;)

    But in all seriousness, I do love that pop of red!
