It’s still warm enough for these chic satin pumps when you wear them with a long coat and cargo pants. This transitional work outfit is just perfect for now.

Yes, the fall weather is finally back! After a week of frost and snow, we got the last chance to enjoy walking in autumnal leaves. Only for a while though, but just enough for you to wear your favourite pumps for the last time.
So, if you are like me, still in love with your pumps, then here is a chic winterlike work outfit for you. Saying winterlike because we all know we will be swapping these beautiful pumps for ankle boots very soon. And wear cargo pants like this again. Plus, the coat, of course.
And saying work outfit, because this is a chic transitional work outfit you can wear to the office this week. Moreover, when styled like this, you can even wear cargo pants to a job interview.
PUMPS, CARGO PANTS AND COAT FOR WORK, WHY NOT?
You know what? I should have added two more words in the title of this post. It’s actually Screw the Snow, I’m Wearing Pumps FOR WORK Today. Since I’m not only showing you how to wear pumps for the last autumnal days. But also how to wear cargo pants for office and look work appropriate.
All in all, as said, this is a chic, fashionable city outfit that you can wear from office to street, from street to bar and back. And what is more, you don’t even need to change a thing about it. Wear it as it is, like this, and you can go anywhere. Anytime.
SHOP AND WEAR MY CARGO PANTS WITH PUMPS
Nevertheless, here is a fashion cheat sheet for you. Just in case you are already covered in the snow and would freeze walking around in pumps today. But hey, as my dear Marisa says, there is always the next season. And this outfit, the cargo pants and pumps will be fashionable next spring too.
So, be sure to pin and save the fashion cheat sheet of this transitional outfit. If not for now, for the next season then. Oh, and share it with your friends too.
Ps. You can shop these pumps, print the fashion cheat sheet from below, put into the shoebox, wrap the box, and give it to your bestie for Christmas. I’m sure she will love it. By the way, shoes are the most popular squad’s Christmas gift this holiday season.
Starting with these chic cargo pants from Closed (shop my cargos 60% off here). Since you haven’t seen them as many times as everything else that I’m wearing here so far. Don’t think I don’t like to wear the workwear, I mean the construction fashion trend because I do. It’ just that these cargos are new and I haven’t had time to wear them with every single thing in my closet yet.
I did, however, show you already how to style these cargo pants with white cowboy boots and a blazer, remember? In case you forgot, be sure to check this post here. Especially if you are covered in snow and can’t ditch boots and swap it for pumps like I did.
Mentioning the pumps. I’m wearing my beloved Gianvito Rossi blue satin pumps. Unfortunately, they are already sold out in satin, but you can get Gianvito Rossi blue pumps in suede now. Go over here for Gianvito Rossi blue suede pumps.
Lastly the black blouse. I already mentioned how important it is to wear a blouse or chic embellished top with your cargo pants to make this workwear office appropriate. I’m wearing my favourite black silk blouse with embellished collar trim. You can shop a similar black top with this beautiful embellishment on the collar over here.
Or if you are saving money for some cool corporate gifts, get this silky blouse from Ganni or this one from H&M (US), or this black blouse from Sézane Paris (EU), and style it with this pretty necklace. Either way, you will look fashionable and office ready.
Also, not to forget to mention, the silky blouse is a perfect transitional top. In case you still don’t know why then go here and check this post.
