Sometimes, an easy, corporate smart-casual outfit can feel as chic as a flirty dress or sassy skirt. It's not evident in the pictures, but each item here is a different print. Small dots on the blouse, pinstripes on the trousers, and a checked vest to pull it all together. It might have been extra great to wear the matching blazer, but I didn't think of it soon enough.
I really appreciate a businessy look that doesn't completely bore me to tears.
