I hardly ever write clothing reviews, but I realize that this outfit contains a couple of pieces that I wondered about before I purchased them, so I thought I'd share my experience!
First, the Express Portofino Blouse. A few of my blog friends LOVE these blouses, so when I recently saw them on super-sale, I bought two (this one and a mint color). The blouse is really great - I can see why it is rated 5-stars after over 2000 reviews(!). They are simple and go with everything - such a great work shirt. the material is really nice and stays relatively wrinkle free. Plus, there are SO many patterns and colors to choose from. I will definitely getting more. Downside: they do not come in tall which I find sooooo annoying. I have a really long torso and I feel like the length is just about inch short for me. Also, you do have to wear a tank underneath, which isn't a huge deal, but something to be aware of.
Next, the Old Navy Pixie Pants. I actually already have black cigarette pants (see them here and here) but... they don't fit (story of my post-baby life). I'm fully convinced they will fit again, but since I started back at work, I knew I needed black pants because they are so easy to wear. My current pair is from Banana Republic, but I didn't want to spend much money on a (hopefully) temporary pair so I got these for $25 at Old Navy. I actually really like them. I prefer to wear dress pants that have a thicker material because I have some curves (like most people) and I need a little support. The only thing I dislike about these pants is the way lint clings to them. It's crazy! My dog hardly sheds at all, but when I wear these pants I'm covered in his fur. I keep a lint roller in my car, but stillllll.
