Lookbook: Stripe Dreams

Enter my current giveaways! $100 and an iPod shuffle from ebates | $250 Best Buy Giftcard Giveaway from BlogHer and Intel | $100 Apothica.com Giveawaya necklace from Navare Jewelry

It's been hard to do lookbook outfits of what I wear to work since I now work from home or when I do go into an office I'm away at the client site and I don't have the time (or my husband) to take my picture!  My biggest thing this year though was to incorporate all of my "main" wardrobe into my "work" wardrobe.  I used to have separate things of stuff I'd only wear to work and it never made it into my regular wardrobe.  I wanted to do a better job of incorporating what I'd normally wear into what I'd wear to the office as well.  Work pants were the hardest thing to do because no one really wears dress pants on a normal basis (well, at least I don't).  But I also got to the point of being annoyed with all of my dress pants as they became to be either too wide legged, too flared or just not right.  Don't ask me how but they just all of a sudden looked weird on me.  I went on a quest to find slim black pants that would look appropriate both in and out of the office.  I tried on a lot of pants and it took a bit but I finally found them!  

What I'm Wearing:
Cardigan: from Anthropologie
Pants: Gap
Shoes: Miu Miu
Bracelet: Vintage and gift from Marika King
Ring: Ariella Collection
Earrings: Anthropologie

Frenchi Stripe Cardigan
Adore this little cardi and love it in the gray as well! This one with the the puff sleeves and bow embellishment is so cute!  Both are reasonably priced and get 5% cashback at Nordstrom from ebates!

Gap Really Skinny Pants
Or these look really similar, almost like dressy leggings.  I'm tempted to try them out too!

Kelsi Dagger Tiffany Pump
Cute!  You can even take the bow off!

These are pretty fun pink pumps for only $35!  I just bought another pair of pink pumps (I love them!) but I'm eyeing these Dior pretties too.

  8. You look fabulous, I got rid of all of my work pants, I purged them all months ago. They all looked weird too. I found a few skinny pairs at Zara and LOFT, but they aren't my favorites.

    I would love to find a pair of high-wasted trousers.

  9. I love this outfit, it's so Betsey Johnson esque! I love how you paired fuschia with zebra prints. I am definitely going to look into a pair of those pumps, the removable bow + the height of those babies are calling out to me!

  14. Love, love, love this outfit! Simple yet so stylish and the shoes are amazing!!! I haven't seen very many photos of you with your hair pulled back but I think it looks quite nice. You should wear it like that more often! :)

  15. One of my fave outfits by far. Love the Cardigan too.

  16. I love your Miu Mius! They are such a pretty shade of pink. I also have the problem of buying things that I'll never wear to work. I'm in a sort of transitional stage where I'm trying to mesh the two together a little more.

  17. Love the shoes with the cardigan!

  18. Oooh! thanks for the link! I've been looking for skinny black dressy pants, and have been unsuccessful so far :( I'll have to check out Gap! :)

  19. Oh I LOVE this outfit on you Tiffany! I only saw that cardi w/green zipper. This pink one is such a fun pop - esp with your heels! And I love the way the stripes mimic the metal doors of your background! I know what you mean about transitioning wardrobes. When I used to work in a more corporate environment it was all much more structured and boot cut or wider legged pants. I ended up selling a lot of work clothes on ebay since I never had to wear them anymore. I kept a couple nice pieces but they're still just hanging there. Those black pants are great though! Work appropriate and cute to wear out!
