Work Style: Pleated Skirt + Button down Shirt

Hello friends and hope you all had a great weekend. These days, our Saturdays follow a routine where we take Nolan to his early morning swimming class with family activities later in the day. Hubby and I have started planning Nolan’s first birthday party and I am very excited. You can see the theme of his birthday party on my Pinterest. How time flies; our baby is growing so fast.

On this post, I am sharing my spring work style.  I love pastel colored clothes and how they brighten up work styles – a particularly good approach when worried about wearing some bright colors such as red, to work. Another way to update your work style this spring is by incorporating button-down shirts with contrasting edgings…definitely a trend to watch for this spring.

 Outfit: Zara blouse (similar here & here) // Zara skirt (similar here & here) // Aldo bag (old, try this here or here) // Christian Louboutin (sold out, similar here, affordable here & here) // Necklace (c/o @plushaccessories2) // MAC Lipstick (here, love this here)

 Thank you for stopping by…have a great day!
