Going navy | Navy trousers + dark denim jacket

I love navy, y’all. And I’ve been wearing a lot of it lately. Navy is such a great neutral! I also just bought a new pair of wide-legged trousers in navy (along with the same style in black — there was a buy 1, get 1 half-off sale at The Limited!), and I like to wear new things right away.

I wanted to wear my navy trousers in a more work casual way, so that’s why I paired them with my dark denim jacket. It was also a teaching day for me (my first class of spring term!), so I wanted to look professional but also approachable. That also explains the navy wedges, for comfort on a teaching day. My navy-and-rust-colored embroidered tank provided the bit of color this outfit needed.

And closeups of my new short hairstyle! One thing I love about having hair this short again is that any pair of earrings I wear are now automatically noticeable. I love wearing earrings anyway, and my ears are one of my personal favorite features (yes, fun fact, I really do like the shape and size of my ears).

These navy Arabesque dangle earrings are lovely, but they usually get lost in my dark hair when my hair is longer. So it was nice for these statement earrings to really get to make a statement this time! 🙂

The last time I wore this navy-and-rust-colored tank on the blog, I wore it for a casual outfit in late summer. It was fun to remix it for a work-appropriate outfit, and I left it untucked to highlight the subtle hi-lo, curved hem of the tank. Leaving it untucked also helped emphasize the “casual” part of this work outfit. Untucked also equals comfortable. Real life, y’all. 😉

    A nice, sleek look for you, Jen. It’s great! And your haircut is awesome! I just got mine cut recently as well and it feels great! I tried a new place this time and I really liked the job that the stylist did (usually I go to a barber). Always makes me feel neat and clean when I get my haircut. 🙂
