Weekend Outfits of The Day: Dressember 18 & 19
Outfit Details: Dress: Banana Republic (hello, 40% sale!); Belt: Nordstrom; (sparkly grey) Tights: Banana; Boots (which we are all sick of seeing): London Fog
Dress it up: switch boots for heels; add jacket & statement necklace
Dress it down: this is pretty damn casual. Flats instead of boots?
Outfit Details: Dress: local boutique find; (heavy ribbed) Tights: probably Nordstrom; Boots: bought in Amsterdam
I tolerate very little kitsch for others and almost none for myself. This dress is one of the very few pieces I own that are truly cute. It has a forest scene, complete with birds and deer. My advice: the best way to wear something like it is to keep everything else neutral and simple. Hence, no jewelry, despite my urge to add a bird necklace or a flower cocktail ring.
Dress it up: not gonna happen
Dress it down: lose the tights and boots, add simple flats
