Level Up Monday Mornings

Monday mornings are the worst.  It’s no secret I’m always late, always.  9/10 its because I don’t know what I want to wear and Monday’s seem to be the toughest.  Mondays are also setting the pace for the week, and seem to always include a meeting or two or three… so I need to dress for success!

Outfit Ambition With A Blouse and Ankle Pants

My go-to items for when I need to look legit are Express blouses paired with some ankle pants.  It always looks polished and professional while still being on trend and fun.  When I can’t figure out what I want to wear and, as always, running late, this dynamic duo is what I always reach for as my work OOTD.  No matter what the activity is that day, or what spring weather throws at me, this duo is functional!

Stripes work as a neutral for me, I tend to pair them with my basics to my colors.  I love this Express Striped Strappy Cross Front Large Button-Cuff Blouse.  I also have an Express Portofino Shirt in this same pattern, as well as an off-the shoulder version.  I can not “express” how much they level up my Monday morning’s get ready sesh.

For spring I LOVE pairing my ankle pants with pumps!  I’m wearing the Columnist ankle pants, which are the best fit for me, and mark pumps (old), but I’m loving these Elastic Cross Strap Snakeskin Print Heels!  Finished off with a statement hoop earring (Avon) and a clear bag for a fun desk to dinner look (mark., old – try the Express Yellow Trim Event Bag for the same look.)

mark.’s Wear With All Dress ($36) is just that.  It has an easy cut shape, fitted up top, banded waist and loose skirt… with pockets!  I mean any dress with pockets automatically makes it a winner!  It’s really just one of those dresses that’s a perfect canvas, that you can, well, wear with everything!  You can dress it up or down with your accessories.  I personally love it with a statement necklace, a few bracelets, patterned tights and pumps!

Accessorized with the Over Ice Necklace and Sparks Fly Bracelets

The berry color is not only on trend, but flatters all skintones.  The Over Ice necklace ($30) from mark. takes things up a notch and the Sparks Fly bracelets ($20) bring in some more jewel tones.  Graphic Details Tights ($14) keep things grounded with the black but keep things interesting with the pattern.

Straight Up Sassy Heels
