My friend Rebecca recently wrote to me, "Idea for your blog... what Catherine wears to work M-F... ?? Bad idea? I don't know, but I am curious!" Now, I've known Rebecca since we were 5-years-old, and she's seen many of my more *ahem* interesting outfits over the years. Rebecca, I really hope you didn't request this because you still picture me in a dress-sized t-shirt with a howling wolf on it and a Blossom hat . . .
Monday was a little crazy for me, and it rained, so I didn't get to take photos, so I figured I'd start with Tuesday's outfit. Let's see if I can achieve T– F or at least 3 out of 5.
As many of you know, I'm a graphic designer. So usually work wear means something professional and put-together, but with a little edge that says, "I work in the creative department." I love this dress because the purple zipper gives it a nice spin on a classic tailored look.
All the other parts of the outfit come from the colors that are in the dress– everything is in the blue/purple color family. I do this a lot— pick one piece to build the outfit around. For example, if I decide to wear black and gold heels, I pick out a black dress and gold jewelry and *poof* instant outfit. It's a pretty simple approach to getting dressed in the morning, because who wants to spend 20 minutes figuring out what goes with what, when you could be getting extra sleep?
