Best advice I could give ANYONE - shop smart. If you buy good looking clothes, no matter what's on your brain, anything you pull from your closet will make you look fashionable and professional if you have already done the heavy lifting on the shopping side of things. I lamented pretty hard about not finding what I wanted in thrift stores. So I finally broke over and ventured in to a couple of department and retail stores. I have looked all over for this style of shirt. And while I LOVE how it looks, I'm admittedly a little disappointed with the construction of the neckline not laying right all day long. However these are my new favorite trousers due to the perfect fit.
And check that pattern out! I love a good black and white print.

Oh my god this whole outfit. It came together in a crash-shopping event. I paid more for this top than I have an entire bag of clothes ($20) but I fell so hard for it in Belk that the DH (who actually went shopping with me) demanded I get it.
Then I stumbled upon these super weird pants. Black on the back, white on the front. Remember my previous love affair?
Note - It is ridiculously hot down here in the South. Don't let me outfits fool you. But I do work in an office of a DME facility and it is COLD most days in the office. So lots of long sleeves and cardigans (with sleeveless tops underneath).
Check out these pants!! Seriously, why buy boring pants. I'm firmly against whoever decided one half of your outfit had to be the focus. I mean look!!! Awesome pants!
FYI, I would apologize for the mirror pictures with my phone, but the DH and I are now both full time workers. I'm lucky to be able to use the public bathroom in the office to snap these pics (our employee bathroom doesn't have a full length mirror.) So I'm making do.
