The close of February marks the (almost) halfway point of my time in Glasgow… which is just crazy to me. I can’t believe how fast my study abroad experience is flying by!

As my peers and I start to add more professional pieces to our wardrobes, it’s important to remember that work style doesn’t have to mean drab or stuffy. Nor does it only have to be worn at work! While these pants are great for a professional setting, they are so versatile and can be worn countless other ways—today I’m sharing just a few to help you style your own printed pants.
