Smiley faces in the rain | Pink + navy work casual

It’s been raining a lot here in Portland in the transition to spring (shocker, I know) — I heard on the radio we had 20 straight days of rain! I love the rain, but the downside is that it does make it hard to take pics outside. But with the recent time change due to daylight saving time, we were able to take pics after I got home from work.

Below is a look at my outerwear, my navy trench coat last seen here, and then my pink + navy work casual outfit underneath. I paired dark skinny jeans (the ones with the black tuxedo stripe running down the sides, closeup here) with my navy blazer for a more casual version of a suit look. To break up all the navy, I added my bright pink sleeveless blouse and then finished off the look with fun accessories, a clock-print scarf and striped wedges. I could also flip this look by pairing navy ankle pants with a dark denim jacket.

And yes, I wore my clock-print scarf in honor of the recent daylight saving time. Because I am THAT dedicated. 😉

And if you’re wondering if you’ve seen that umbrella on the blog before, the answer is YES, as seen here. Obviously, I like to make goofy poses with this smiley face umbrella! 😀

    This is a great look for you, Jen! Casual, but still professional looking enough for your job. And your smiley face umbrella brightens even the cloudiest of days. 🙂 And are those little green buds on the trees behind you?! So lucky! The trees haven’t started budding here yet. Unusually so, Ohio hasn’t seen much rain yet, so that might explain why. Then again, the season is still young and there’s always a chance that we’ll get some pretty heavy downpours as we move into April.

        We’re starting to see a little green form on the trees here finally, which is a sure sign that spring is on the way. 🙂

      Yes, it’s definitely a challenge this time of year on the west coast! We’ve had to get creative — and finally, I just said that I would stand in the rain to finally get some pictures! (Sam stayed under an awning to keep the camera dry.)

    Nice work look! I think pink and navy are so pretty together and your scarf was a great choice. Hope you get some relief from the rain soon. Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday! Hope to see you back next week, Jen.
