Pinterest Parallels [Vol. 2]

Casual Friday · Office Appropriate Outfits - Winter · Viagra users forum

Pinterest Parallels is my attempt to recreate outfits I’ve saved on Pinterest using items that I haven’t purchased recently.

I saved this photo about two months ago because I’m always looking for ideas on how to “dress down” my dresses. And since I have a short sleeved black dress that doesn’t get enough love I thought, hey, I can do this one!

So comfy! I felt like I was wearing pajamas all day. However, I also felt cute and spunky which, let me tell you, I normally do not feel when I’m wearing my pajamas. Plus, I think it was a great way to take this black faux leather trimmed dress (which I have also worn out to events) and make it more appropriate for my casual office.

What do you think?

Notes: Dress is from August 2013. The tee is so old I can’t remember. The scarf is from at least two years ago. The boots and the watch are the most recent additions to my closet.
