Personal Style: Animal Print Button Up

animal print 1

Our office dress code is business casual, but I always like to add my own little twist to the usual business attire. Enter the animal print button up. This top is extremely versatile and I have worn it numerous ways, like under a black sweater in THIS post. It will be great to wear in winter or summer, as the fabric is pretty light weight but can be layered easily for extra warmth.

I would also love to talk about these pants. Listen up, all of my tall girls out there! I have the WORST time trying to find pants that are long enough. I never can buy just “normal” length pants, I always have to find a brand that comes in tall lengths, especially since I like wearing heels with both dress pants and jeans. If you are looking for dress pants, check out these Joe Fresh from JC Penney. They are the perfect length for heels! I believe they also come in white, I might have to check those out for the summer!

If you have noticed, denim jackets have made quite a comeback. I have had this jacket for a few years now, and I wear it with absolutely everything in the summer and the winter. I think it adds a little something special to this outfit. Have you ever worn denim with “work” attire?

I love this jacket because of the dark denim, it makes it seem a little more dressy than a normal light wash distressed denim jacket. Also, this shorter length is perfect for curvier girls, as it cuts off right before the hip, making your lower half seem longer and leaner. If you haven’t tried a denim jacket recently, you will be surprised as to how versatile they can be!

  1. Pffftt… as IF I have ever had a problem with pants being too short! My problem is the complete opposite, especially being a curvier girl, where I have to get the right size to fit my rear end, but they end up being waaaayy too long. Thank goodness for “petite” and “short” lengths 🙂
