What I Wore to Work

1/26/2012


You know that dress that you can put on and feel instantly polished? For most girls, it's probably a LBD, but for me, it's the mixed print H&M shift pictured above. I bought it years ago and pull it out whenever I am having one of those mornings (you know the ones).

Paired with a canary yellow cardigan, black patent leather belt, tights (in the winter months) and grey snakeskin heels, it's an effortless ensemble that looks like I tried. *Note to self: take outfit photos before work, not after (that explains the wrinkles!).

P.S. I spotted my dress over on Sincerely, Jules!
