If you look back through our posts, a pattern starts to emerge. We love that twist of the unexpected, a mixing of unusual elements–Rustic Glitz, Down Home Doily and Red Velvet Variations all have it. Taking the typical and making it special and fresh. This outfit is no exception. Perfect for Sunday Brunch out with the future in-laws, great for a job interview where style matters, just right for whenever you need to feel dressed up, polished, confident and still you.
The necklace has a wonderful vintage feel. The black gives it weight and substance, but the delicate strands keep it from being too heavy. The dress is an interesting meshing of highly tailored sophistication, with a twist of whimsy in the lace detail around the waist. The shoes are a versatile choice for this outfit and countless others. And the bag (my very favorite element) is one of those perfect bags you search for years to find. It’s polished enough to dress up, simple enough to be the emphatic exclamation point on just about any of your casual outfits. Classic, well made, tailored, but not too boxy, just perfect. What do you think? Where would you wear it?
