One of my favorite things to do is to pick out my outfits for work. It might seem odd but this is one of the few ways I get myself excited to show up to work happy. After all, we spend about one-third of our day in a work setting. Today, I’m sharing this vibrant work style wearing the classic Betabrand dress pants in the straight leg cut.
Shop The Look
Many moons ago, I boarded a one-way flight out of Alaska. I thought I was done with Alaska, but apparently Alaska wasn’t done with me.
I could not pass up on the opportunity to go back to the Last Frontier as a hospital pharmacist, one of my dream jobs since graduation. These yoga pant dress pants from Betabrand and this red wrap sweater (similar) were among the items I packed in my luggage.
Truly, blogging full time for almost a year gave me the freedom and flexibility to travel more freely than years past. I got to visit Namur, Brussels, and even Montreal, the French capital of Canada where I took these vibrant images. I was excited and a little nervous to go back to a regular 9-5.
It’s always a plus to have functional wardrobe pieces that can be worn on various occasions. I shared the story of how I first learned about Betabrand work pants in this Betabrand review post.
The quality, the comfort level, and the texture made the dress pant yoga pants my daily work pants on days when I did not want to wear jeans or leggings.
Attesting to the versatility of Betabrand work pants, I wore my Betabrand yoga dress pants work pants during my work-from-home days and my regular 9-5 job.
The classic styles make these pants a staple piece in my wardrobe. And on my first few days of work at the hospital pharmacy, I rotated between the few pairs of Betabrand pants I took with me to Alaska!
I don’t know about you, but 9 out of 10 times, I am cold. And when it comes to my work style, I gravitate towards warm, cozy pieces like this tie-waist cardigan (similar).
With my work style, I live and breathe the triple-C treat (comfy, cozy, and chic). This cardi and Betabrand work pants combo is a home run, especially on chilly days like these in Montreal.
Tie-waist cardigans are timeless pieces that can be worn over and over again. Plus the ability to tight or loosen the fit allows you to choose your level of comfort and how much you want your waistline to be defined/accentuated.
If this tie-waist cardigan looks familiar to you, it’s because the red cardi was one of the items I purchased from the July Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. This exact cardi is now sold out but I found a few similar styles and color options for you (here and here).
For reference, I wear a US small (size 4) and weigh about 135 pounds.
I am wearing a size x-small and regular length in the Betabrand work pants (straight leg style) and a small in the tie waist cardigan.
Also part of this work style and Betabrand yoga dress pants series:
My shoes are a good reminder that fashion is a cycle. I still remember rocking these plaid flats to work as a new pharmacist. A coworker lightly teased me saying that these loafers looked like a pair of lounge shoes.
Now, this shoe style is trending again. I’ve already gotten a few inquiries on where these shoes can be found. It’s hard to find these vintage-esque pair but I’ve linked two similar styles (here and here). They are super old loafers from either JustFab or ShoeDazzle.
For a simple yet stylish flair, I chose my under $30 designer-inspired clear tote bag with a croc-embossed purse insert. It’s a great alternative for expensive fashion finds for way less compared to it’s $200+ counterpart.
For almost a year now, I’ve worn almost exclusively Victoria Emerson bracelets (wraps and cuffs). They are stylish, go great with most wardrobes, high-quality, and well-priced.
And if you time it right, you could scoop up two or three bracelets for the price of one. Their sales are out of this world. You can check for Victoria Emerson’s sales here! My favorites are this Attica cuff, any of their genuine freshwater pearl wraps, and their animal print double wraps. Check out this roundup of the best Victoria Emerson bracelets.
Tying the look together, I wore this multi-chain opal necklace (under $15) and lightweight beaded earrings (under $10) from Amazon. Yesterday, I ordered a few bracelets from Amazon that I’m excited to try. Fingers crossed that the quality is on point!
