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!
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.
