Flirting with Flare

top LF / bottoms Brandy Melville / necklace F21

Happy Friday everyone! This week flew by, but I can't say I'm not happy it's the weekend. I know I talk about the weather in like every post, but I just can't get over how hot it's been, especially during mid-September! And it looks like we're due for another heat wave this weekend too. 
I love summer looks, but putting together work appropriate outfits that will keep me from overheating has been particularly challenging. And although I work in a creative environment, I try not to overexpose, so I went with this textured crop and breezy trouser. The high neck and waist lines make for a more demure crop, keeping exposure to a minimum. To tie the look together, I added a braided leather belt, my favorite watch, and a bold red lip to add a pop of color to the monochrome. These wide leg trousers are definitely one of my go-to pieces, they add just the right touch of sophistication and are ultra-comfy! 

With Love,
Patti
