... I go for what I call subtle elegance. I wore this look to present a paper in a conference this morning. I chose this grey dress because of the ruffly tulle skirt, but I thought I needed to add some color and interest to the dress, hence the pink top. The neckline is a bit low, so some of the grey dress was peeking out, which kept the look modest. And this blazer-style cardi is my new favorite layering piece! It has everything that a cardigan can offer, but with more structure.

Also, I've decided to order the Sinclair in Burgundy Fade glasses from Warby Parker. Thanks for all the feedback and suggestions!

Now, it's time to get comfy and enjoy the rest of the night. Happy Saturday, everyone!

  4. I saw that dress at Target and passed it up because I didn't know how to wear it. Now I'm totally regretting it because I love this layered look with the lace on top peeking out and the tulle on the bottom.

    You look great!

  9. I love those glasses on you! Great choice. I am completely in love with this look. That cardigan is such a perfect piece, it dresses up the look and I'd bet comfortably. Pearls are my girls so I love the necklace and I have to say the layered look looks fantastic on you!

  21. I believe this is the frame that I liked most when you last posted. I think they look great and Warby Parker always has such nice ones. I love how you've used this dress to give the effect of a skirt. The ruffles on the bottom make it super sassy! And I like your pearls! :)

  22. Hey I'm glad you chose those glasses, they look great on you. My try-on order is on its way too, can't wait!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. So, I'm really happy that you picked those--they were my favorite :) And you've also inspired me to do the try-five-thing. I always meant to buy another pair of glasses, but sort of dropped it. But for less than $100?? Tell me how it goes :) I'll be in the process of home try on.

    that's such a lovely skirt, too.

  25. That cardigan is great! I couldn't figure out at first if it was a blazer or a cardigan--I guess it was both. Layering a top over a dress and then a cardi over all that is something I wouldn't normally do... You've given me an idea, though. Thanks!

    Oh and thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

  30. O very cool. You've kept the look still quite sweet and feminine. When I need to look like I know stuff, I always just reach for a boring grey work dress or something suit-like so you look great!

  40. The blazer-cardi is such a great go-to piece...I throw mine over everything and I look instantly put together (although mine is also super comfy so there is a double advantage to wearing it! teehee).

    You look great!
