It felt like a cat eye kind of day.
Details: chain-link jersey shirt dress – trench coat (seen here), Banana Republic; super opaque tights – belt – Jackie cardigan – hand-knotted pearl necklace – cocktail ring (seen here), J.Crew; platform peep toe booties, Nine West (seen here); watch, Lacoste (seen here); handbag, Kate Spade
I’ve had this dress for a few years and I think I’ve only worn it once before. Now I realize why. I like it, it’s cute, but the jersey material gapes like nobody’s business. I have so many safety pins in the placket I feel a bit unsafe. Also, not sure if this dress is a liddlebit too short for work; thoughts? I felt like the opaque tights mitigate this a bit. And these open-toed booties continue to be one of my favorite pairs of shoes!
I love wearing black and navy together. And black and brown. And most other traditionally taboo color combinations. (The dress is navy, although it’s very hard to tell in the pictures!) I haven’t tried wearing something pink with my red skinny jeans yet, but I’m working up to it!
And one last, running out the door picture. Happy Tuesday!
