NOT appropriate for the office

office appropriate 0742 Since I don't work in an office environment, I always find myself at a loss for when to wear my blazers.

This crop top look is one of my favorites, but unfortunately not office appropriate!

I was inspired by the trends I see around everyday: waterfall jackets and crop tops.

This jacket in particular made me pull out this blazer again. Here it is in khaki. Alice + Olivia blazer Cropped BCBG jacket A.L.C. blazer for a more classic look

I haven't worn my jacket in a while because I though the shoulder pads made me look huge. Looking at it now, I don't really see what I was talking about ;)

The pants are my trusty Gap pants. The light really caught the stitching down the back of the legs. These pants are completely office appropriate, with a different top of course. And work as a day-to-night item as well.

The crop tops *cropping up* everywhere have left me feeling cautiously optimistic. I'm kind of liking this trend.

At first, I thought this top (or bra?) looked weird on me, since I have a short upper body, but it's grown on me, and lately I've been wearing it constantly.

I cut the strap off with a pair of fabric shears, and used the lace to make these work as wrap sandals. I now can't stop wearing them, it's awesome to have a *new* pair of shoes that didn't cost a dime.
