Work Wear: Maroon Pants

I bet you never thought you'd wear maroon pants over a year ago. But suddenly with the rise of the brightly colored pant, it's a no-brainer to have a rainbow of slacks to choose from. Today, I want to show you how I've incorporated my NY & Co. maroon pants that I purchased on clearance last winter (on a whim) into my wardrobe and how I've styled it for work.

I have literally worn this pair of pants on SEVERAL occasions because I find it is so much easier to pair with a variety of tops and styles AND it breaks the mold from classic neutral pants without coming off too wild, especially for work.

This blouse is another recent Goodwill purchase (along with this and this) and I really love it because it has both brown and black in the pattern and that means you can take it in all sorts of directions! It can also transition into all of the seasons because of it's sheer quality.

What are you wearing today? What are your plans for the weekend? I am heading HOME for the weekend! While I made a stop at home during my Homecoming Weekend, I wasn't able to spend more than an hour or so with my parents so it will be great to have two+ days with them AND to celebrate my amazing mom's birthday! How do you like to celebrate your loved ones' birthdays?
