Ahhhh…today is one of “those days”.  I literally rolled outta bed, grabbed the first thing hanging in my closet and a jacket to match. Since tomorrow is casual Friday, I wanted something dressy (not that I don’t always want something dressy) and I must say I’m very proud of myself for building a wardrobe that is a collage of mix-n-match wearables.  Most of my clothes will easily pair together and that was much needed on a day like today!

The thing I love the most about the dress I chose is that it has a wonderful, long belt made out of the same fabric.  This allows me to not only wear the dress as a skirt but also use the belt (tied in a cute bow of course) to really pull the outfit together.

Plus, I get tons of compliments on the bow and the outfit really works as one piece versus just a jacket and a dress.  It’s such a beautiful dress also…an eBay find that I’ve coveted from the moment I pulled it from it’s box.  Now to start thinking about Casual Friday…


Oh…one more thing.  I took my pics in front of a cute mural today and didn’t notice until later that the mural appears to be quite shocked by my outfit!  Just ignore the big Mark Twain-esque man behind me who looks quite startled! (Although I do have that effect sometimes).
