Brighten Your Day

- Outfits

My work uniform during spring and summer almost always includes a pencil skirt and pumps and when I need a little something extra, I go for a bright patterned shirt like this one that I recently found at H&M.  Layering a couple necklaces and adding a bracelet, it is an easy, comfy ensemble that wears well throughout the work day! Happy Friday Eve everyone!

    I really like the print of this top. Definitely work appropriate but I love those shoes even more. So pretty!

      Hi Elle! 🙂 I JUST got them on Wednesday, but on the shoe sale rack at Macy’s. I tried to find them online and couldn’t (There is a good possibility they are there, but I am not overly patient with trying to find things sometimes). I would recommend going to your local Macy’s ASAP and seeing if there is still a pair on the sale rack! Trust me, the backs will stand out and they are so worth it for the sale price! 🙂
