Listen. I know this outfit concept is nothing new and I know it’s rather wintry given that the weather over here is finally breaking (except did I just hear chance of snow flurries tomorrow? I can’t…) but hear me out. When I introduced this dress before, I mentioned how much I liked to layer it. I have a ROY G BIV collection of button downs, spanning solids and stripes, polka dots and plaids. Therefore it was a no brainer to put this look together for work one morning. And I’m not going to lie, I wore this the day we had parent-teacher conferences and loved it because it felt so cliché-ly teachery. I like to do that.
So I’m with you. I hope to pack this dress and plaid up until next time, but I wanted to show that swapping out a shirt and statement necklace with a staple dress and boots can be the simple difference that makes something feel new and different. I like to do that too.
