How to Rock a Cropped Pant at the Office

Working in a predominantly male office, a girl's gotta project a powerful image. 

I love these menswear inspired cropped trousers. Completely work appropriate and perfect to show off a killer pair of heels

These ones push the envelope a little bit in terms of height, but I think the very neutral colour tames them down enough so that they can be worn to the office.
The height in this case is pretty necessary. Since I'm only 5'3, the cropped pants chop me off at the ankle and make me look a little dumpy. The high heel in a nude elongates my legs cancelling out this effect.

Golden Hue

So it turns out that I'm far more marketable than I had originally anticipated.
Less than a week after leaving my last job (the horror stories which have been well documented), I found a contract position with an accounting firm. I'm so thankful that the stars were aligned for this one!
So far I'm loving the new position, and I hope that at the end of this term, a permanent position opens up!

Positive Procrastination

I have one of the biggest tests of my professional life coming up... 
So of course that means I've been procrastinating like crazy.

One of my FAVORITE things to do is hang out in my closet. My bf has been gracious enough to let me take over the walk-in in the master (and he's completely taken over the 3rd bedroom for his weights and guitars... a fair trade I think), and I spent this past weekend reorganizing the mess in there and getting rid of some unworn items. I'm pretty proud of the result. 

I really wish I had taken some "before" photos so you could see the difference. 
I moved my tall white set of drawers (from Ikea) out of the actual bedroom and into the closet. It holds all my make up, nail polishes, bras, panties, tights, socks, and bathing suits, so it's about time it made it to a central location. 
I also reorganized all my necklaces, bracelets and other pieces of jewelery so everything's all in one place now. 

I'm sure I'll still shift around a few things, but so far I'm enjoying the new layout :)
