Work Wear: Navy Pleat Front Trousers

You know what day it is?  Hump Day!  That also means its Work Wear Wednesday!  My job as a Marketing and HR Manager requires that I dress professionally every day.  Most days I tend to opt for a skirt or dress because I just love them and I think they are more comfortable.  But occasionally, I love to wear pants, especially ones like these!

I have been eyeing these pleat front trousers at Nordstrom for a while.  They are around $55 and even though it is not a terrible price, I just couldn't justify the expense when I wasn't sure I would wear them a lot.  But a couple of weeks ago, I picked them up from the Half Yearly sale for a steal!

What makes these pants exceptional in my mind is that they have small pleats that are very flattering. The styling on these is very classic and I think they are a great piece to add to any wardrobe; especially if you have to wear professional dress every day but want to look cute.  They will also transition from day to evening really well with just a change of a top or changing your shoes and accessories. Additionally, they have pockets, which I love when I wear dress pants.  And the big thing?  They are elastic waist!  Yes, please!  These trousers meet all the requirements for me.

Unfortunately, the navy is almost out of stock at the sale price.  However, they have a gorgeous green pair marked down.  And they have them in khaki and black too!  I love these so much and think I will wear them all the time, so I will be getting the other color options as well!

I have paired them with a basic flare sleeve tee that I picked up at the Loft for a steal!  The great thing about this tee is you can dress it up or down and it really looks great with everything.  And right now it is on a final sale for $8!  It also comes in a blush pink color that would look just as fab with the navy pants.  My heels are a couple of years old, but I have linked some that I actually like even better with a block heel.  This bag can be carried or has a removable strap.

Do you wear work wear a lot too?  Do you prefer dresses or pants?  I would love to know if you like this content and post, leave me a comment on my last Instagram post.  Have a great week, friends!
