Work and Play


Business Casual Spring Outfit

Happy Monday everyone! I can’t express my excitement and gratitude enough from the overwhelming amount of positive support I received from you all last week. You guys are AMAZING! It blew me away. Taking risks can be hard, but your encouragement made it all worth it. So thank you, thank you for believing in my dream and for journeying with me!

Okay now that I’ve dried my tears and gotten the sentimental part out of the way, let’s talk about what you all are here for… the clothing! Today’s post is centered on work and play; outfits that are versatile enough to make it from work to various social outings afterwards! This outfit for most of you is work friendly, while also being a flirty fun outfit for a date afterwards or just a fun girls night out. When I walked into Dolce Vita a few weeks ago this top was the first thing I saw. Sometimes you see a piece of clothing and you know before you even put it on it has your name written all over it. This was one of those pieces for me. With its unique tulle overlay and crop-top tee underneath, it was something I hadn’t seen other people wearing. I’m always a sucker for unique pieces! These pants are the most comfortable pants I currently own. Upon first glance they weren’t my taste but after trying them on I fell in love. They are a modern loose fit, as many fashion trends currently are a looser or baggier look. The tricky thing with looser fits is to make sure they are complementary to your shape. I’ve worn them to church, meetings, and date nights. These pants pair well with tops ranging from casual to business friendly. For casual looks you can go with a crop-top or chiffon tank (they are high-ish waisted) or a light sweater for church and a button down for work! I currently prefer these to my denim right now.

So look through your closets ladies, do you have a great pair of slacks you love? Maybe some loose trousers? Something with complementary cuts to accentuate your shape but also comfortable enough to go from work to play!

See you all next Monday! Check out my Instagram (@e_whistle) in the meantime for day-to-day looks.
