It seems almost sacrilege to be posting an outfit featuring bare arms and legs when it was in the 20s this morning as I was walking to class, but I’m so thankful I have these leftover pictures Eric took for me because it is way too cold right now to take off my coat for pictures even for just ten minutes. I wore this outfit during my final week at my internship and I love it because it reminds me of something I would have worn in the earlier days of this blog. That’s probably because I’ve had each of these pieces for at least three years. I don’t think I’ve worn them all together before, but I could be wrong. This dress was indispensable this summer for wearing into the office. It’s comfortable enough for my two hour commute and is pretty effortless to wear so I never had to be concerned about whether my outfit was working when I was getting dressed at 5 a.m. in the dark. The ruffle detail and spotted pattern combined with the studded belt and drapey cardigan made me feel stylish but not like I was trying too hard or calling too much attention to myself. This outfit just hit the sweet spot for office dressing.
