Flood (See Jane Wear)

 J Crew top, scarf + shoes, Gap pants, drugstore umbrella (fancy)
Business casual isn't all pencil skirts and cardigans--at least, it doesn't have to be.  A slim pair of pants paired with a silky blouse is just as professional as an oxford and skirt.  To edge it up (I push the limits in the corporate world), I added leather cutout booties and a bright fuchsia scarf.  A slim, cropped pair of pants may be one of the most versatile items in a wardrobe.  Whether dressed up at work with this olive blouse or down on the weekend with an over-sized blouse and ballet flats, I wear them more than I'd like to admit and find myself always gravitating towards them when I'm running late before work.
