Red, White & Blue Coming Through!

- Career, Outfits

So maybe it is a little bit early for nautical inspired work wear, but who doesn’t love a good red, white and blue pairing? I bought this openwork sweater from Forever 21 just a couple weeks ago and when I was hanging it in my closet, I saw my light blue work blouse.  Instantly I knew how I was going to wear this new piece to work! I also know that the taupe color will be extremely versatile for me whether I wear it to work again layered over a blouse or for fun, casual looks! Happy Wednesday!

Don’t forget to stop by and link up for “Work It Wednesday” over at A Little Bit of Lacquer!

    So cute! I love how the blue peeks through the eyelets in the sweater! And the red heels were the perfect shoes to compliment the outfit.
