I spent several minutes this morning trying to come up with a good skirt outfit that would work for both work and MOTG afterward without any luck. I also tried to come up with an Angie menswear-inspired outfit with blue shirt and white pants and blazer, but it just didn't feel like me. (Not ladylike enough, I guess). So I went to my FFBO--dresses! The orange Bailey 44 dress was perfect for both work and MOTG by switching out the jacket, bag and shoes. I went to a popsicle social with DD at her new school so she could meet her new 8th grade buddy, then took the kids out to the park afterward.
I love this dress, it feels like I'm wearing pajamas all day. The pics with the overhead lighting really emphasize my poochy apple tummy, but hopefully it's not so noticeable IRL. Had lots of people complimenting me on my dress--both patients and coworkers. A couple of random moms came up to me in the park to tell me that they absolutely loved my dress...I told them to go to Anthro to check out the latest iteration.
Oh BTW I had my first IRL sighting of a purple B44 at the hospital--a staff member walked by wearing one (with a cream linen blazer on top)! I was so excited but I didn't have time to stop her (I didn't know her) to compliment her (good thing I wasn't wearing my orange one then! That would have been really funny!)
1. Anthro Bailey 44 orange tiered stripes dress, Alexis Bittar orange pendant
2. Work--Lafayette 148 cognac leather jacket, Fossil floral satchel, Easy Spirit nude pumps
3-4. MOTG--American Eagle denim jacket, Marc by Marc Jacobs Dotty snake bag, Ugg wedge sandals. Do you like the handbag as a crossbody or hanging off my shoulder?
Thanks for your feedback!
