A little business casual

Sweater - Loft / Shirt - Ann Taylor / Pants - Old Navy (on sale!) / Flats - Payless / Necklace - c/o / Watch - Kate Spade

I've been doing a lot of networking lately, and it's always hard to decide what to wear/how dressed up to get.  I feel like business casual is usually the perfect mix of dressed up but not too dressed up.  Another struggle I've been having is what to order on coffee dates.  I'm still a child and don't drink coffee, and while I've found things that I like to order at most coffee places, they don't really seem grown up enough to make a good impression.  Like, hot chocolate is definitely out, and the passion fruit iced tea at Starbucks is right on the edge (it may be called tea, but it's basically Kool-Aid).  Then, I had a little breakthrough.  Chai tea!  Looks like I'm (almost) a grown up after all.

  1. Chai is delicious, definitely on the grown up side of drinks. I really love this look, everything from the sweet polka dots on your pants, the color of your sweater, and that pretty necklace!

  2. I always have such a hard time getting ready for networking events, too! I always get told I look very young so it's hard for me to keep my personality but still look professional and like an adult lol. You definitely have mastered the look I think!

  3. You look great in this color! I love how you brought a little fun to business casual with the polka dot trousers too! I feel your coffee house pain (or at least when I was dating haha).. I don't like coffee or tea, so I ordered a lot of caramel apple ciders... Really... mature haha...

  4. I don't like coffee either so I'll have to try chai tea sometime! That color sweater looks great on you!


  5. That is such a gorgeous color on you!!! and I'm definitely with you. I don't like coffee, but chai teas are the best! Especially pumpkin chai teas at Starbucks.


  6. ohhhhh, I like this business-y side to you! that maroon looks so pretty against your skin :)

  7. What a wonderful color on you, Kristina! I love those pants as well - I have several pairs of the Pixie pants and I looove them! They're so comfortable :)
