Business casual, but make it fun

I feel like the business casual game has changed a lot over the years. Gone are the days of only wearing crisp white button-down shirts and solid black pixie pants. Although there's nothing wrong with sporting the basics, it's exciting to know that there are so many different style options available now to allow us to express our own style.

Hi friends!

As many of you know by now, I started a new job back at the end of April and since then I've slowly been trying to grow my work wardrobe. Even though I was a business major and had to dress up for presentations and had internships, I never really had a solid business casual wardrobe. I've stated on the blog before that my office is pretty casual, but I still like to dress on the business casual side (look good, feel good, am I right?).

As of late, I've been really into sporting color and prints for work. I'm pretty notorious for showing up in palm printed pants or any and all things Lilly Pulitzer... I mean, if I'm going to be sitting at a desk staring at spreadsheets all day I might as well do it looking like a tropical vacation, right? Also, for someone who's into fashion and style, I love experimenting with different styles and trends for work.

Lately, the paper bag pants trend has been super popular lately and I knew I wanted to pick some up for my work wardrobe. I had heard Gentry of Girl Meets Bow rave about these pants from Amazon on her stories and I figured I'd give them a try... I'm hooked.

For one, the pants are nice and lightweight which is ideal for the hot Charlotte weather we've been having lately and they're also not see-through. Ordering from Amazon is always hit or mess with their quality, and my biggest issue is that many of the items are see-through. I've worn these pants twice now and they've held up through the wash and have already put in an order for a second pair in a slate color.

I can totally see myself pairing this with a classic white button-down for when it gets cooler or with other graphic tees like I've done here for a more casual vibe. How would you style these pants? Also, where are your favorite places to buy workwear that won't break the bank? I'm excited to start sharing more workwear inspo for you all! I hope you liked the post and as always, thank you for reading!

xoxo,
Amy
