Clothing for thought.
Today, I wore a trench. Not just any trench, my navy blue waist length trench that has been begging to be let out of the closet since I bought it in May.
My point being, I was ready for this sudden dip in temperature because I
am a compulsive shopper bought something in the off season. That’s really just the most wonderful thing, because chances are no one else will have it, (it is the off season after all) and it probably was on sale. My trench was, 70% OFF. This is no jest my friends.
Were you ready when your sundress and Cardigan weren’t enough this morning? To prepare you, I’ll suggest snagging some outfits similar to these to withstand your chilly morning commute.
While you walk to work you’ll definitely turn heads with that statement jacket, and when you’re ready to enter the boardroom, you’ve got a perfectly appropriate dress. But fear not, people will still be transfixed by your shoes.
For a more casual setting..
This outfit is perfect for going to grab drinks with a friend at a hole-in-the-wall bar, or going to a concert. Anything really, so long as the atmosphere is light, and the dress-code isn’t anywhere near formal. The jacket and jeans are definitely a classic vintage look, but by adding that graphic t-shirt (which also raises money for a great cause) you bring it up to this century and show your spunky side. The heels are pretty intense, but there is no occasion where Charlotte Olympia isn’t appropriate. And since when is it a bad thing to look better than everyone else in the room?
Well, I have to go
shop some more prepare myself for FNO on Thursday!
