Winter workday

Winter workday

This is the other Numari dress I ordered, and it is as fantastic as my other one.  It’s very basic, and can be styled with anything really.

You can never go wrong with pearls, and they do look great with this dress.  I added a belt for fun, but I actually don’t always wear a belt with this dress — because Numari tailors it so well, I don’t feel like it’s necessary.  It’s generally better to have a coat that’s longer than your hemline, hence the long coat pictured here.

Boatneck dress

Boatneck dress

After my recent adventures in learning to sew, I wore my new black boatneck dress to work.  (May I add that the dress cost me $3.33 in fabric.)  No one noticed my dress, which may be a good thing (I wear a lot of black dresses to work) or may have been a bad thing (no one wanted to mention my poorly hemmed skirt).  In any case, I was very happy with how it was styled with a leopard print belt and black and gold earrings.

I got my belt at Ann Taylor, but I like this Jimmy Choo one.  One the less expensive end, these from Target and the Limited are nice.

I’m very picky about leopard print for scarves.  I love mine (H&M earlier this fall), and the one pictured above is pretty fantastic.  This white and black print from Michael Kors is nice (although I would wear a different belt).

The best part was that the dress fit, something that doesn’t happen unless I drop $65 at the tailor or order a Numari dress.  Life has been busy, but I hope to start sewing again soon.

Out walking

I put this outfit together while thinking about going for a trip to wine country.  It’s good to have layering options for a cool morning and warm afternoon.  Wedge sandals are great for walking.

Black & White

Black & White

This is an easy outfit to wear to work, and a black pencil skirt is a staple. Tim Gunn advises that a pencil skirt should fall at the bottom of the kneecap, but I’m too tall and they generally all right above my kneecap.  This bag continues to be the best thing ever.

I love this bikini – I have it in both white and black from this past season.  The earrings sparkly but not heavy so they’re good for dancing.
