The BEST Black Slacks Ever

Stein Mart is always one of my first stops when I’m looking for some new workwear pieces. I recently had a big presentation on the calendar and wanted to grab a new outfit for the meeting so off to Stein Mart I went.

But seriously, run to Stein Mart to scoop up these Chaus New York Zipper Pocket Slim Cut pants. Like stop what you are doing immediately and look at these pants because the black pair is on clearance for under $10!!! Yes, under $10 dollars. These pants are cut so incredibly well you will melt at how flattering they look on you. I’m 5 feet tall and they hit me at the perfect ankle length without needing a petite size. I’m wearing a size 8 so they run TTS. The zipper detail adds just a little edge and creates a great shape at the hips.

This top is Tahari and one of my all-time favorite brands for women’s workwear! This photo shows the color of this green top pretty close to the true color. It is a halter style with 2 buttons at the neck and slimming crochet detail down the front. I just threw a blazer over it for the meeting. It fits true to size and is on sale for under $23. Best of all – this top can totally be dressed down with a pair of shorts and absolutely transitions into Fall.

Sorry about the spots on the mirror. It’s a little distracting! 🙁

Top (M) // Pants (8)

Here are the pants in white! These are perfect for summer in the office! You’ll look fresh and light. The slim cut version of this pant comes in 4 colors but this style of pant, without slim-cut, comes in 4 other colors: pink, citrus peel, teal and wild poppy and all are currently 25% off and under $30 each!
