Striped Tie Top | Black Pants

THANK YOU GIVEAWAY IN ONE WEEK! Join the mailing list to be included in the drawing.

It was 98 degrees and high humidity the day these pictures were made.  Welcome to July in Alabama.  My hair was already wet shortly into shooting.

Wrapping up ten days of Womens’ Workwear and it’s almost time for me to head back to the classroom.  Starting my 26th year teaching middle school. Yay!

Styling classic black pants and a simple sleeveless top.  Structured crop blazer keeps me warm in air conditioning. Here’s one from Amazon at a great price.

Stripes are going to be super hot this fall.  I like the v-neck and the necktie detail. Horizontal stripes do not flatter me unless the neckline can counteract the stripes.

Top is from last season and out of stock but here are similar options.

 

Nordstrom

I’m still in search of the perfect black dress pants but I got these a few weeks ago and they are pretty close; The Limited brand from Belk.  They are stretch skinny ponte pants but the small split in the bottom of the legs dresses them up a bit.

Shoes are Michael Kors pumps.

Hungry?  Try an easy side dish this week. Fresh garden tomatoes, Parmesan, herbs and spices are all you need to make this delish recipe.
