I work in a fairly conservative office, to say the least, and sometimes I find myself second guessing what I wear to work every morning. If I have meetings I tend to wear a more conservative outfit, but sometimes I take a risk and wear a more trendy ensemble. When I choose the latter I usually get the up and down look from a few co-workers (but not in a good way). Today I wore my brand new J Brand bright red pants to work because one, I had no meetings, and two, I was super excited about them. I styled it with a plain black J. Crew sweater and black flats in order to tone it down a bit. I got through the day without any discerning looks, but I couldn't help but wonder if the bright pants were still too much. Maybe I'll give it another whirl at work later this summer. In the meantime, they will be getting a lot of play on the weekends.
