Today it’s time for the 18th installment of Conner’s Closet!!! I can’t believe we’ve been doing this for a year and a half now. Thank you Conner for all of the incredible WORK WEAR ideas that everybody gets so excited to see every month!
In case you are new here, Conner is my little sister, and she works in HR for a hospital system. Here she is with her little guy, Brody (now 5 years old)! I MEAN. HOW CUTE ARE THEY. But lemme tell ya, don’t let this precious picture fool you. That boy will give you a run for your money. And so did his mama when she was little. #sassy #karma
Conner’s thoughts on all of her outfits today will be in italics. My thoughts will be in regular font. Let me start out by saying that her super cute outfits almost make me want to work in an office. #almost
And I’ve got some great news. EVERYTHING she’s featuring in today’s post is AT LEAST 40% OFF.
Floral button back top and tie waist shift skirt
This is officially my favorite fall outfit! I love everything about it…the colors, the texture, the tie, and the pockets (yes, pockets). I LOVE the color yellow and knew this skirt (ON SALE and an additional 40% OFF) had to be mine as soon as I saw it. One reviewer says it is more of a green yellow, but it’s definitely marigold…she needs to have her eyes checked. Ha! There is just a hint of yellow in the floral button back top (ON SALE…and an additional 40% OFF right now!) – it’s perfect with the skirt!
The skirt is long enough to wear with heels, but it would also be super cute with flats! It will also look great with this navy and white striped top or this other floral blouse. And you need to be sure to add the Raffia Drop Earrings (ON SALE and an additional 40% OFF!) to your cart, too. I hope you like them, because I am wearing them with all three outfits!
The fit is consistent with my usual Loft sizing. The top is an XXS regular and the skirt is a 00 petite. The top is machine washable, but I will take the skirt to the dry cleaners.
Ok – so let’s do a quick recap. What did we learn today? Buy the yellow skirt. Buy at least 2 tops to go with it. Then, be prepared to get a ton of compliments.
CONNER! THIS OUTFIT IS DARLING! And you’re right, I think it would be super cute with flats too! #andilovepockets
SERIOUSLY DARLING, sister! AND ALL ON SALE!!!
Floral Tie Neck Blouson Top and Marisa Pants
I loved the print of this top (ON SALE and an additional 40% OFF!), and it comes in plus size too (also on sale!). I knew it would pair perfectly with the Marisa pants in coastal grey (40% OFF).What I didn’t know is that it would also look fantastic with the olive green pants, too. It’s pretty, comfortable, and will also look great with dark, skinny jeans.
I can’t say enough about the Marisa pants (click HERE for all Marisa pants). I have a pair in every color and wear them at least twice a week! These pants are such a great staple and you won’t regret buying a pair…or two, or three, or four. Trust me! Also, did you notice the Raffia Drop Earrings again? Have I convinced you to get a pair?!?
The top (XXS regular) and the pants (00 petite) are true to Loft sizing. Both are machine washable, but I will lay them flat to dry.
This is an awesome outfit too, Conner! This top is so pretty, and I’m in 100% agreement that the Marisa pants are the best pants out there! I have several pairs as well from the last several years (black, navy, red, and orange).
Ruffle Utility Blouse and slit cuff skinny ankle pants
I absolutely love this outfit, but the pictures don’t do it justice. The white, green, and pink (in the earrings) color combination is perfection! This blouse (40% OFF) is to DIE for. The ruffle stand collar, button cuffs, and gathered back are so feminine. I believe these pants (40% OFF!) are new to Loft and let me tell you, I’m a fan. Right now, they only have them in green and black, but believe you me, I’m going to lobby for them to make them in every color. The pants have side slits and also zip on the side.
They sit higher on the hip than the typical Marisa pants and seem to have a slimmer fit – I’m wearing the 00 petite, but would probably be more comfortable in a 0 petite, so depending on how you like your pants to fit, you may want to size up. Both the pants and top are machine washable and I will lay them flat to dry.
I love the white, pink, and green combo too….AND THE ADDITION OF THE LEOPARD SHOES WAS SO SMART. Such a great loook!
Since Conner’s shoes are old, I wanted to give y’all some options! If you’ve been reading here for awhile, you know I’m a big fan of a leopard shoe. Personally, I own these flats (I’ve had them for about 4 years and still wear them all the time!), these slides, and these booties. I don’t have a need for leopard heels because I just don’t wear heels often at all, but if I did have a need for them, I think I would go for #4…..although I’m kind of dying over #3.
AND JUST FYI, NORDSTROM TRIPLE POINTS STARTED TODAY! WOOOOOHOOOOO!
And check out the versatility of the green pants! Here they are with all 3 blouses previously seen above.
THANK YOU, CONNER!
Your outfits are all DARLING, and I know there are lots of working women out there who appreciate these posts so much!
Now, before you go, I’ve got a couple of things for all of you!
First, this leopard blouse is on my post on Friday, but I’m showing y’all a look 2 days before the post goes live BECAUSE I’M PANICKED THAT THIS TOP is going to sell out. Friday’s post is all about LEOPARD, and I’m going to give you several different leopard looks
This top is one of the stars of the post, but tons of other bloggers are showing it this week and I’m afraid it’s going to sell out before Friday! It’s ONLY $49, and it’s TOTALLY CHIC. It reminds me of a Veronica Beard blouse, but it’s a fraction of the price. It looks much more expensive than it is. I will wear this top with black jeans, regular denim, and white jeans. And going along with the WORK WEAR theme, it would also look awesome with black pants or a pencil skirt. THIS IS A GREAT BLOUSE.
It has pretty little pleats in the back, so it drapes beautifully and fits like a dream.
I’m wearing a small and it’s definitely a relaxed fit, so if between sizes, size down. But I’m glad I didn’t size down. (Keep in mind that I often times size up in button ups, but I didn’t need to in this one….so I guess that means it runs a bit big?)
LOOK HOW CHIC IT IS!
Secondly, I want to make sure you know about the HUGE MAKE UP SALE happening right now (along with TRIPLE POINTS!). As you know, make up rarely goes on sale, so I try to take advantage when it does.
The eyeliner is the best eyeliner I’ve ever used, and I know I’ve converted many of you. The black is too stark for me, so I wear the “alloy” which is a wonderful grey. I use all of the products you see below every single time I put on make up. They are my tried and true favorites. Well, the mascara is new, but I’ve always had trouble finding a mascara I swear by, and this one is good so far.
eyeliner (I wear “alloy”) / Nuelash / bronzer brush / lip glosses (My colors are Bellini and Naked Plum.) / lipstick (The only color I ever wear is Fashion Icon. The online color is not a good depiction of actual color.) / eye shadow primer / NARS tinted moisturizer (my color is Groeneland) / Dior lash extender / Urban Decay Naked Palette / Beauty Blender / Mascara / Bobbi Brown shimmer brick
I get asked all the time for my favorite blush, and my favorite is actually “Classic Pink” by Cover Girl! However, I know that this blush is like the most popular blush EVER and supposedly works on pretty much every skin tone.
And in anticipation of questions I will receive about the Nuelash, it’s a serum that helps grow your lashes. I’ve had good results, but my sister has had PHENOMENAL results. That’s me on the left and her on the right (in a text she sent me last year). I also swear by the Dior lash extender and put it on right before I put on my mascara. It lengthens my lashes with white fibers, but they don’t fall off into my eyes. It’s pretty magical.
If you have a make-up favorite that you CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT, and you think I need to know about it, please leave it in the comments! I’ve been wanting to try some new products, and this sale is the perfect opportunity.
See y’all back here on Friday! I have a post that I am SUPER EXCITED about!!!
