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.

Long sleeve dresses are great for spring, when it’s still a little cool outside, but the AC may be making it cool inside as well.

I have this dress from Cache, and I wouldn’t wear it with pearl earrings because I think it’s too much with the gold at the neckline.  This lovely David Meister dress is one sale right now, and I also like this Felicity & Coco dress from Nordstrom, which is a little more edgy.

Stepping slowly into spring

Stepping slowly into spring

Happy first day of Spring!  This outfit combines an element of a winter wardrobe (black sweater dress) with a happier color.  This way, you stay a little warm if it’s chilly in the morning.  It may be nice to combine this with a black trench coat.  I like this one on the more expensive end, and I also like this one and this one from Macy’s.

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.

Red pencil dress

Asos is awesome because they tell you the height of the model. I’m 5’11.75″ so this is super helpful for me in getting an idea of how things will fit.

This dress is similar although lower cut.  If you prefer sleeveless, they have this one and this one.  I love the long sleeves on this dress.

This is a cozy outfit to wear to work on a cold day.  The Lo & Sons bag is my absolute favorite – I’ve had it for over a year now, used it heavily, and it still looks brand new.  It’s also great for travel.
