I’m off work again today as I travel to my hometown to run the Illinois Half Marathon tomorrow. So this Friday you get another outfit that I wouldn’t necessarily wear to my office. However, it is an outfit that I wear on the weekends. In fact, I’ve worn this outfit to brunch and to a meeting where I helped a former colleague set up a Facebook page for her new business.

There are two things I really like about this outfit. One is that it’s perfect for days when it’s chilly in the morning but warms up in the afternoon. Why? Because underneath that sweatshirt is a full maxi dress!

Put your sweatshirt in your bag, keep the scarf, and ta da! You’re ready for warmer weather. The other thing I like about this outfit is the scarf. Why do I like this scarf so much? Because of its shape.

This isn’t folded in half. Nope. It’s actually a triangular scarf. It makes it super easy to wear without worrying about how to tie it or fold it or finagle it. My mother-in-law brought this back to me from Italy a few years ago and Linda, if you’re reading, a few more of these would be great!

Now, this isn’t to say I haven’t worn this dress to work before because I definitely have as you can see here. So, whether you need a casual or a dressier outfit, I’ve got you covered. In a maxi dress.
