Dress, sweatervest, and boots: Thrifted — Tights: Spanx — Necklace: Erica Weiner — Earrings: Gift
Hey, everybody! I hope you had a lovely weekend, and spent some time with your family if possible–whatever “family” may mean to you. My dad’s birthday was yesterday, and since we’re 1,150 miles apart at the moment, I’ve been sending him links, videos, and lots of love (well, and a phone message, since his phone system is kind of complicated and he can’t actually pick up when I call). He was an elementary school teacher for twenty-something years, and there was a gun scare when I was in his class in 5th grade, so I know we’re thinking and feeling a lot of the same things about what happened on Friday. A family member of mine is also in the hospital right now, so my mind drifts inevitably back towards loved ones, you know?
Anyway–this outfit is what came up as a result of me trying to think of creative ways to style this dress for work. It’s got a weird cross-back, and this time I didn’t feel like showing it off over a bright button-front or something, so with some creative layering I got a handle on things, and I don’t think I even looked too funereal.
I have to remind myself to brush the crumbs off next time, though.
