Two Work Outfits for Early Spring // Lavender + Blush Pink & Florals

With spring just around the corner and temperatures staying in the 70-80s here in Southern California, it’s time to think of work outfits for the season transition. A good friend of mine reached out to me for advice on styling two of her new work pants and of course, I took her up on the opportunity to help! She had picked out these gorgeous lavender/blush pink high-waisted pants and floral embroidered black pants. She’s about my size and borrowed me the pants to style in these photos.

Work Outfit #1

Let’s start with these lavender pants. They are a wonderful design that Express had first released back in 2017 in an olive green color. The big different is the material of the pants- the new spring design is more work appropriate in my opinion.

Onto styling…since it is still winter, I opted to keep the top a darker color with these pants. A classic navy blouse is a must in everyone’s wardrobe and this is an inexpensive option – I’m wearing size XS. No belt is needed with the tie-waist style of these pants. I finished off the look with lighter neutrals in my handbag and heels. A rose gold watch, bracelet and simple pendant necklace complete the look.

Style Tip: For springtime, I would change out the navy blouse for a white or ivory color to lighten up the look.

Now, I’m sure I’ll get a lot of questions about the sizing of these pants. My friend had sized down to a 00 Petite in these (she’s normally a 0 Petite). This worked out well for me because I usually wear a 00P. Unfortunately…the pants were still a little big on me. I have belted them tighter to keep them higher on my waist in these photos. For hem length, they do run a little long on me with an pant inseam measuring 25 inches. I attempted to tuck the cuff under in these photos so they weren’t too long with my heels. The pants would likely fit off-the-rack if you’re inseam is slightly longer than mine- you may wear your usual size or a size down depending on how loose you would like these pants.

Work Outfit #2

The second pair of pants my friend picked up were these embroidered floral black pants. I loved the embroidery detailing and it is on trend with many items this past year featuring this detailing on jeans. For this look, I picked a color from the flowers to match for my top. This blush pink color is great for spring and I opted for a neutral blazer to finish the look for work (blazer now back in stock in a new color– wearing 00P).

For springtime, I decided to avoid the usual closed heels and went with an open block heeled sandal. A black handbag completes the look.

For sizing, there were no petite sizes in this pant style and my friend picked up a 00 Regular. These fit me surprisingly well and were just slightly too long on me. I opted to cuff the hem underneath for these photos- which does cut off a portion of the embroidery detailing. The inseam is 27 inches on these pants.

  • I adore both of these outfits! The colour combination of the first one is so cool, I would never think to put lavender and navy together but it really works so well – especially with the style of those trousers. Will definitely be having a look – although maybe ordering a few sizes and sending the wrong ones back! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Oh my gosh I love both of these, but especially the first one. Living for those pants, and need to buy a pair!

  • Susannah Fields O’Brien

    I just got those pants and I love them!!!!!

  • Wife Sense

    I looooove the pants in the first outfit. So adorable. Even though it’s still winter, I would wear the white blazer with it (and a white cami or tee underneath that.)

    These looks are so cute. Love those blush pants! I don’t dress up much these days but that would be perfect for me. Loving my pants! Lol
