put those jeans to work

jeans: 3×1 via Nordstrom [old; similar here] tank: Loft [exact] blazer: Banana Republic [similar] shoes: Everlane [similar] photos by Faith What’s that? A– a STYLE post?! I know: it’s been eons since I’ve actually blogged an outfit (as opposed to just Instagramming it and calling it a day).

My employer is blessedly lax in terms of dress code (as in, there is none)...
