Business Casual pants for petites


As a working professional, I love the fact that I can wear dresses to meetings and at the office. However, sometimes a lady needs to slip in a good pair of pants that are both funtional and comfortable.  I am so grateful for  companies like Banana Republic, Loft, Macy’s and even Express because they have petite styled clothing both in store and online. I love to wear floral printed pants like this to work. It’s one of the ways I am able to make a lasting impression with my clients. Plus, it’s a lot of fun to add darling floral prints to your wardobe am I right?!

The key to being effortlessly chic at work: laying. I achieved this look with a button up shirt. I layer the button up with a scoop neck sweater then pulled out my floral print pants and white pumps. See? Easy! I love adding pops of color to my looks whenever I can. When in doubt, slip on some red lipstick! Your lips can be the best accessory if you forget to add jewelry to your look. You can check out my favorite red lipstick brands & colors here.

Thank you to Katie Vee Photography for these wonderful photos!

    Love this entire look all the way down to the shoes and the bold print on the pants. That stripped blouse paired with that sweater is just fab and perfect for work. xo
