Professional + comfortable in pink + grey

I wasn’t sure if I was going to take pictures of this outfit — it just seemed so basic to me — until both my friend and colleague Stephanie and my husband Sam commented that they really liked this outfit. And I am partial to a pink + grey color combination.

I had an important meeting this day, so I wanted to look a little professional — hence, the grey blazer — but I didn’t want to look like I was trying too hard. A blazer is the easiest shortcut to making anything look instantly more professional! And this blazer — still available online! — has such nice seaming details. Also, I added a grey pearl-and-silver brooch at the last minute — another shortcut to making any outfit a little dressier and more professional.

But y’all know me and how highly I value comfort, so that explains the untucked blouse and trouser jeans.

Stephanie also commented on how she liked that my pewter wedges tied into my grey blazer. (Not an accident. I am my mother’s daughter.) Even when I am at my most tired — and this term, especially, has been draining me — my mind still automatically looks for ways to color-coordinate. Color-coordination = LOVE.

Details:  Grey blazer, Macy’s {exact}  //  Pink sleeveless blouse, Kohl’s {very similar} {same style blouse in different colors and patterns}  //  Trouser jeans, thrifted {very similar}  //  Pewter wedges, Cole Haan, fashion-swapped {almost exact from same brand — and on sale!} {very similar and less expensive option}  //  Grey pearl brooch, gift from my husband’s Scottish great-aunt {similar}  //  Grey pearl hoop earrings, Abu Dhabi, gift from my husband {similar}
