Mocha Trousers

Greetings and hello Monday! I woke up to a cover of frost this morning and the most gorgeous sunrise over our backyard. I posted a picture on my Insta Story. It’s another 27 degree morning, and I have a photo shoot today, so that should be fun. Ha! We’ll be shooting some holiday looks and some cozy winter outfits, so stay tuned!

Meanwhile, I have a work wear look today featuring these straight fit trousers in a gorgeous shade of beige they’re calling frosty mocha.

I know I’ve been wearing a lot of Loft lately, but that’s because they’ve been running a 40% off sale, and I like to post outfits that include some sale pieces when I can.

The rest of this look is from my closet, and sizes are limited, but hopefully this gives you some inspiration to shop your closet, if you’re looking for some work-friendly looks.

The piece I’m most excited about is these trousers. They’re fully stocked and 40% off with code WORKIT.

They have some stretch to them, so they’re very comfortable, and they’re true to size. I’m wearing a 6 regular, and the 32″ inseam is perfect with my favorite pumps. These pants also come in petite, tall, and plus sizes.

I’ve worn this cowl neck top before, and unfortunately there are only a few sizes left in the forest green, but I love how it works with these pants, so I went ahead and wore it anyway. I have the size small, for reference.

I also think a burgundy shell would be great with this look. This satin pleated blouse comes in a pretty shade of wine red, and it also comes in army jacket green, which is close to the color of the top I’m wearing here. Another nice option is this silk roll cuff top.

This jacket is an older Caslon piece, and it’s pretty much sold out. This one is similar, but I can’t speak to the sizing. It says to size down, but the one I’m wearing runs small because I’m wearing the medium.

I really like these knit blazers. They’re so comfortable, and they read a little more casual than a classic blazer, which works well for my style aesthetic. Here, you can see the gathered back panel — a feminine detail that keeps this jacket from being too traditional.

I didn’t want to wear a long necklace with this cowl neck top, so I went with a smaller piece that fits in the neckline. I’m super excited to tell you that this pretty silver beaded necklace is back in stock and on sale. I don’t think it will last long — there were probably a few returns because it was sold out for a while.

I find myself reaching for this necklace a lot. I like how it is delicate but not a pendant, and it’s also adjustable so I can make it work for a variety of necklines.

My earrings are these hammered disc drop earrings from Kohl’s, and I also find myself reaching for these often because they go so well with this necklace.

Finally, I carried a black bag and wore black pumps because I like how they echo the black from the blazer, and I figured I’d keep this look conservative for work wear. That said, I think leopard pumps would be amazing with this outfit!
