Paisley Pants and a Pop of Pink

Paisley Pants and a Pop of Pink (1 of 6)

H&M Top, LOFT Pants, Nine West Heels

Wearing pajama inspired trousers to the office requires a certain amount of structure from the rest of the outfit.  I went with heels and an embellished peter pan collar top, but I could just as easily picture these pants with a blazer and t-shirt.  While I might have felt like I just rolled out of bed, I hope I didn’t look it!
