Ann Taylor: Bright Pink Top and Scribble Pants

So I decided to dress up for work finally, and barely got anything done today! So much for that, right? Our computer system was down most of the day so it wasn’t my fault! At least I feel like I looked the part. 🙂

Ann Taylor has some really cute pieces for work apparel right now, and you can totally turn them into casual wear or “going-out” outfits with just a few little adjustments.

So here is my bright work attire for the day! It was so windy outside and I felt it fitting to take pictures in my office anyway. (Sorry for the mess, we’re moving offices soon!)

Top – Ann Taylor; Pants – Ann Taylor; Shoes – Michael Kors (old); Bracelet – Anthropologie; Earrings – Anthropologie; Watch – Michael Kors (old); Bag – Marc by Marc Jacobs.

Ahhh windy hair!!!
