the peplum top & coral pants

not your average pants.

add a pop of color to your work wardrobe with some colored pants! as much as i love B&W, i feel like it's a good idea to throw in some color sometimes?! these coral pants make me pretty happy. and what's better is that it goes with NAVY!! i have worn this to work a few times and always receive so many compliments. i have a hard time finding work pants because i am SO PICKY. most of them are always too long in terms of length and inseam, the material is too thin or too thick/wooly. there are no slanted pockets (don't ask but this is such a huge must for me), there are pleats or the closure is an extended tab. anyways, call me crazy but these Banana Republic Avery pants fit perfectly and meet all my pant expectations! they are also available in regular, tall, and petite and multiple colors! i'm thinking the light blue might be next!

onto the top. well, it's peplum. it's white. and it's pleated. that's all!  

side happenings: for the past week i have been battling a nasty bug. i have not been sick for three years and i'm pretty much down for the count right now. #sucks. this past weekend i was going to skip out on a Derby day polo match (that happens ONCE A YEAR!) but someone knocked some sense into me and said, "get up. dress up. show up." i firmly believe in the power of showing up. i just needed a nudge. it was so fun but obviously i couldn't take much of it, #noregrets. more picts at the end! i am also trying all remedies to get myself better for Austin Fashion Week!!
