Work Chic – Flattering Crops

April 4, 2019

I had Monday off work this week, but I dressed up for breakfast with the Bay Area Fashionista, and thought this outfit would make a great work look too!

Secret Stretch Cropped Pants

My Look

I’m wearing my new Chico’s Secret Stretch Straight Leg Crops. I actually think they have a bit of a cropped boot-cut feel to them, but either way, they’re wonderful and have just the right amount of thickness and stretch for ultimate flattery! Pear-shaped/bottom-heavy approved!! (C/O)

The jacket is Lafayette 148 NY and the top is from Chico’s last year, but I linked one you can buy right now (on sale too). (C/O)

You might remember my jewelry from the Palm Desert trip. And if you follow my little “outfit of the day” videos on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve seen these reversible earrings quite a few times already. (C/O)

The shoes are amazingly comfortable high heels from Nine West. A great classic pump that never goes out of style.

And of course girl talk with Cathy is always a treat! I’m so ready for summer and having more time to spend with my girl friends!

The Psychology of Style

I have to say I felt like a boss babe in this outfit AND I got treated that way too! I felt like I got extra attention and respect when I dropped my car off for service, at the car wash, and at the store later. Is it the outfit or how my attitude changes when I wear a certain thing? I’m pretty sure it’s both! Does your style affect the way you act? The messages you send out? That’s actually what my latest installment of my Wardrobe Building series is all about.

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is me talking to you, other middle aged women like me who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. We all have own shapes and bodies, parts we’d like to cover and parts we still don’t mind showing off a bit.  This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!
