I’ve had lots of requests for work attire lately. I shared one look a couple weeks back but I noticed someone mentioned that they couldn’t show shoulders while at work. Which is bananas to me. I love me a good set of shoulders. People should be able to show them off! But that’s besides the point. I also love this request since my work attire is pajamas so this gives me the opportunity to play dress up and get creative with looks I wouldn’t normally wear.

But now I want to dress like this 24/7.

Just kidding. Pajamas are my best friend.

When it comes to work pants, everything is pretty basic, and honestly a tad boring. And I get it. Sometimes outfits need to be a little toned down depending on the circumstances. But if you can add a little flare and color to your pants, well it will make all the difference in your look…and attitude! When I put these red high waisted ankle pants on, I immediately felt powerful. I don’t know if it was because of the color or just because I never wear slacks, but I absolutely fell in love with them. And they come in 8 different colors including some of my favorites like hot pink, mustard and thornberry (similar to a mauve color). And since Express listened to what their customers were looking for, they recently added plus sizes  so these pants are available in sizes 00-18!!

Now when you have fun pop of color, you can pair it with some muted pieces like a blazer or a dark top. Since I was trying to create a more conservative look with this outfit, I decided to go with a high neck bodysuit and covered up my shoulders with a puff sleeve boyfriend blazer. I absolutely love the length of this blazer to help create a little more length in the torso paired with the high waisted pants. All these pieces together create a long, lean and professional look that will make you feel like you can conquer anything that comes at you, especially in the office!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. I have followed you for a while now….to have a physique like you is my goal! I know you don’t count calories or carbs, etc. but I am curious about portions. Aside from needing to clean up my eating and workouts once and for all, I feel like my biggest problem is portion control. What are your suggestions on portions? Do you try to eat a certain amount of proteins, carbs, veggies every meal?

    1. that’s very sweet of you to say, Nicole. i truly don’t think much about portions when i’m eating clean meals. i always like to have some sort of protein, some sort of veggies and sometimes a starchy carb. but that’s really the only thought i put into it! i just try to eat tons of veggies and clean protein!

  2. What a great outfit! You look fabulous 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration! I need new work pants so I’m going to check these out. I love the red!

  3. Thank you for posting work outfits with the shoulders covered!! Incidentally I work at a court house (so your pictures were on point) and we have to have our shoulders covered, pants down to the ankle, etc.

    I would also love to see some outfits with super comfy shoes (i.e. flats or a thicker heel) that are work appropriate. I’m running around a lot during the day but also have to dress conservatively so it would be cool to see how you tackle this problem. Right now my clothes are just beat up and sloppy looking. Would love to clean it up and channel your style!!
