Blog Swap | Work Chic

Happy Monday everyone!
Today I'm so excited to be doing a blog swap with my sweet and absolutely stunning blogging friend Vanessa of Style X Vee! Vanessa just started blogging in December, but has such chic, distinctive style and is a makeup goddess. Her blog features looks for both work and play, and lots of extremely helpful makeup and beauty tips. Somehow, she does all of this in the midst of relocating to a new city and home with her husband. We've wanted to do a blog swap for awhile, and thought a chic work look would be both fun and fitting since we're both hard working gals. Thanks so much for reading, and please check out Vanessa's fabulous blog!

Hello! I'm Vanessa from stylexvee and I am so happy to be doing a blog swap with the lovely Jacy! You love her and so do I, it is that serious. Can we just talk about how gorgeous her eyes are? Today I wanted to share with you my version of a work outfit I would wear regularly. My work is business causal and while I could totally get away with wearing something a bit more laid back, I have a thing for dressing up. My makeup for work is also something I like to play around with and lately I have been absolutely obsessed with Stila Liquid Lipstick in Beso. This baby dries to a matte finish, extremely creamy and stays put while I have business meetings and lunches.
This polka dot peplum top was something I found randomly one day at H&M (sadly no longer available, but I've got dupes below) and you just cannot go wrong with a black pencil skirt. I typically wear these nude brown pumps from Pour La Victoire when I know I want to look polished and nude pumps make your legs look like they go on for days! Yes, they are pretty tall, but the platform heel and the cushion insert makes you feel as if you are walking on air. A total must for me!

I hope that this outfit gives you all a bit of inspiration and brightens up your Monday morning. If you are looking for some more inspiration, I hope you'll follow me on my blog and Instagram where I post fashion and LOTS of beauty tips and tricks.

Thanks so much for reading and have a lovely week.
