casual work wear

Another late night working on my independent research project means a less-than-perfect outfit for today. I was actually pleasantly surprised with how this turned out. Normally a white button up shirt and black pants together has such a formal feel to it, but I liked the way the grey short sleeve cardigan made it more casual. Unless it was my messy ponytail that did that...

Shirt: Eddie Bauer (c/o Mom) [similar]
Short sleeve cardigan: The Limited (gift) [option]
Necklace: via Groopdealz [similar, similar]
Pants: The Limited [exact]
Flats: via Payless [option]


  1. you look more put together than i did today, working from home -- you should see my hair (eeekkkk). :) love the texture and drape of that cardigan!

  2. i really like the idea of a classic piece like a white shirt with a comfy sweater layer!

  3. Your "less than perfect" outfit looks way better than most of my best efforts :) Love the necklace you're wearing here!

  4. I really like this, I think the black pants/white button down and the comfy cardigan balance out nicely!

  5. That cardigan looks so comfy. I am still trying to warm up with the short sleeve layer look…I feel so silly in it but it looks great on you!


    1. I know what you mean! I actually tried it first with the sleeves down all the way, but didn't like that, so I rolled them up. For most the day, they were at my elbows (even higher than pictured). Go figure that they finally come undone for the pictures.

  6. Great casual look! I also have problems wearing short cardigans on top of long-arm blouses but it looks really great on you! Also love your dress from the last post :)
    Thanks so much for your last comment! They always mean a lot to me :)

  7. I absolutely love the crisp, chic & classic look of Dressy Black Pants with a White Button-Down Shirt tucked in. Most of my White Button-downs come from either Express or The Limited. I also have some from bebe & WHBM. I absolutely love yours from Eddie Bauer. It is not usually a store I gravitate towards but you can find some great closet staples there. I do like this Cardigan, however here it looks kind of big & baggy on you. I prefered it last week where you wore it belted.
