The Evolution of an Outfit

Outfit Evolution 1

I thought I would do something a little different today and take you guys through my process of choosing an outfit! As I mentioned earlier in the week, dressing for work has been quite the challenge for me and I’m trying really hard to take the clothes I have and make them work-appropriate.

Exhibit A:

This pink sundress shows a little bit too much cleavage, plus the back is pretty low. Simple fix? Throw this cute striped tee on top for coverage!

Exhibit B:

Since this sundress has a full skirt, the tee looked lumpy just laying over the top of the dress, so I knotted it to give myself a little waist definition (and I love the way a knotted tee looks!). I always take a cardigan to the office because it’s like Antarctica there, so I grabbed this gray ruffly one. However, I just wasn’t feeling the look, in case you are wondering what my facial expression means!

Exhibit C:

Forever 21 Cardigans, Target Striped Tee, Old Dress, Forever 21 Flats

I took off the gray cardigan- ahhh, much better! Then I added this open black cardigan and tied it in front to finish off the look. Ta-da! An outfit I can comfortably and safely (no revealing any naughty bits!) wear to work! Do you guys go through a similar process when getting dressed for work?

Yay for the long weekend! Tomorrow I plan to attend a friend’s graduation party, then a bunch of friends and I are making our way down to Philly to celebrate the 4th of July weekend there. It’s going to be fun getting the gang together and I’m looking forward to the good ole’-fashioned BBQ that my friend has planned! What are your plans for this weekend?
