27 Dresses

27
Maurices shirt; Target skirt and heels; JC Penney tights
27

Okay, so maybe these shoes aren't in my 30 items. But instead of cheating, I'm going to refer to this as 'gently easing my way back into the rest of my wardrobe'. Who knows what will happen when I have access to my entire closet, and so I believe that doing it slowly will be much safer. It's about safety people.

Actually, I was going to wear my purpley-pink shoes with this but it didn't quite go together right with the tights and I was worried that I would look either color blind, or like I dressed in the dark. Plus I wore this to a scholarship breakfast where I'd be around a lot of accountants, and most accountants can only handle so much color at a time. Again, I'm only thinking about safety.

And if this doesn't make much sense it's because this time of year I'm only able to function because of my frequent starbucks visits, and the motivation that a week from now my semester will be over.

  1. Look at you in such serious clothes! I really like this fun but professional outfit, and I promise I won't tell anybody about the not-in-your-30 shoes :)

  2. I just have to tell you that since finding you via the 30 for 30, you have seriously become one of my favorite style bloggers. I LOVE everything you wear, and how completely effortless you always look. I think if I were your size, and we lived next door, I would completely raid your closet (umm... in a totally not creepy friend way, of course).

    Here's to another starbucks visit for both of us in the morning!

  3. Hey, rules are meant to be broken! The safety reasoning sounds totally legitimate to me :)

    But look at you all fancy. You look really pretty!

  4. I really, really love this look. And I definitely think that professionalism wins out over 30 for 30 every time. Employment is good.

  8. I really like this combination. It's not something that most people would automatically combine, but it works so well. And shh... I won't tell about your shoes being a 30 for 30 add-on. - Katy

    You're too funny.
