For week two of the work-to-weekend series, I’m featuring this tie sleeve top from Banana Republic. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen a sneak peek of the upcoming casual look, but today I’m sharing a look for the office. It is Monday, after all. 😉
I last wore these ankle pants here styled for work with a blazer. I love how versatile they are and it’s easy to style them for any season. They don’t hold up too well in Michigan winters with the exposed ankle, but these are fair game for spring, summer and fall.
This tie sleeve top is absolutely adorable. I first shared the link a few weeks ago in my loving lately post for spring. I wear denim to work pretty often these days, and I thought this top would look cute with my favorite skinny jeans and a pair of loafers or lace up flats for work. I dressed it up a little more for this post with my ankle pants and my leopard heels.
These shoes are old (and starting to show it), but I linked a very similar pair with a shorter heel below. I’m definitely one of those people who thinks that leopard will go with anything. Some people don’t like the idea of mixing navy and black, but I think it works well in this outfit. The leopard heels help pull everything together.
And can we talk about these statement earrings? I think they’re my new favorite pair of earrings. For statement earrings they’re not too heavy, and they’re not overwhelming. Also, navy goes with everything so this will definitely not be the last time you see them on the blog. When it comes to earrings, I definitely tend to wear studs more than anything, but these were too perfect to pass up.

I can’t wait for you to see the weekend look on Friday. For a sneak peek, head over to my Instagram and scroll back a few squares through my feed. 😉 If you missed last week, I styled this lace back sweater for work (here) and for the weekend (here).
I’m loving both the tie sleeve and the statement earring trends right now. I don’t always follow trends, but I’m loving these two for spring! What about you? Is there a trend you can’t wait to try?
PS- I’m traveling to New York City later this week to attend a few days of the Architectural Digest Design show! I’m so excited! I travel on Friday, and I’ll be there all weekend, so follow my Instagram stories to see all the interior design and architectural beauty. ♥
