I don’t know about you, but the return of in-person social events and working in an office feels like it’s actually in sight. I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed wearing loungewear and relaxed outfits at home over the past 12+ months, but now that “getting dressed” feels very much like it’s going to be a thing again, I’m mentally preparing myself.
When I put on an outfit, I’d say my top two goals are 1) to feel confident and like myself in the given situation and 2) to feel comfortable. The look I’m sharing today is a great example of those two goals colliding to create an outfit that’s both timeless but can be worn comfortably for hours.
For work events, meetups, and sometimes date night, a statement blouse with culottes in a matching tone is a showstopper regardless of your body type, height, or size. This AllSaints top has been a favorite for me as of late; it has a gorgeous textural aesthetic but feels even better than a cotton t-shirt against your skin. The white pants I’m wearing are an oldie from Helmut Lang that I found on sale at Saks off Fifth (one of my go-to spots/strategies for finding designer clothes for less), but I linked similar below.
Lastly, let’s talk about these heels. Full disclosure: I am a brand ambassador for Sarah Flint, but these opinions are my own. I’m wearing the Sarah Flint Perfect Pump in 100mm, and if you haven’t heard of this female-owned luxury shoe company, let me give you a quick rundown.
Sarah sought out to design high-quality, luxury shoes that were actually comfortable all day. The shoes are designed in the same Italian factories as household names like Louboutin, but they have thoughtful details (like a wider bed and added padding) to make them ultra comfortable. I’ve worn mine for 4+ hours with no discomfort—which, for a tall girl like me, is saying something.
In my opinion, no closet is complete without a classic neutral pump, and if you want something with quality design that won’t hurt your feet, I highly recommend the Sarah Flint pumps. You can get $50 off your first pair with the code SARAHFLINT-BANATALIEY.
