OFFICE OUTFIT THAT ROCKS: EXPRESS SHORT SUIT

Express Jacket

Who doesn't love Express? Express has always been one of my favorite stores from the first day i walked into one at The Fashion Center in Pentagon City in Arlington, Virginia many years ago. Besides the fact that i would shop for party outfits and casuals there, it was my go to store for formals, especially dress pants. Oh my gosh, they have very impressive formal outfits, but what got me to love the store even more was because that was the only store that i knew to have women's dress pants in a perfect size "00" I mean like, really? Obviously i am not that size anymore but their pants always fit you to the waist and hips like never before.
This just takes me back to my corporate days when the dress codes for the office would restrict one to very neutral colors like black, grey, brown.... and more black. I quickly realized the best way to shop for my office outfits was to pay attention to the various prints, patterns and cute little details even if it meant sticking with the neutrals. Also with versatility, and i incorporated that into my wardrobe. Styles are there for you to think outside the box, right? If i worked in a place where we are allowed to wear shorts to the office, i will be on it immediately. It is shorts season and i have always loved the short suits. Imagine me doing the happy dance all over the house because Express came through and hit a home run with this outfit. Although, they are sold separately but i created myself a short suit and it really doesn't take a genius.

Come on, polka dots have never looked this cool. Love the preppy chic look of the jacket. Love the pocket details and the clean look it gives the outfit. Its versatility is endless because you and i can see this jacket being worn even on the weekends with denim or likes of. The shorts on the other hand are high waisted but you can't tell from the photos. Be rest assured you will get to see all of its cute details in another post soon.


Considering how pricey office outfits can be, the polka dot jacket and black shorts that make up this outfit are selling at a ridiculously low price right now (so are many other items). I am not going to ruin it for you so go ahead and find out below if you want to know how much this whole outfit costs.

Super cute. Love how you paired your look with a more sensible shoe, it keeps the look more stylish rather than vampy. Polka dots are always fun.

I do love polka dots and I must agree with you and say that they never looked more cool than on that blazer...such a lovely pretty preppy look! The shorts are fabulous...I like this sort of shorts...super comfy for the summer...and your legs look fantastic! cute black and white heels...all in all a perfect white and black outfit!
