How you know your outfit is a winner

Office Appropriate Outfits - Winter

I had a hair appointment last week to get a trim and the instant my hair dresser saw me in this outfit he said, “Your outfit is so cute!”

I told him that originally I was going to pair this sweater with my smaller houndstooth print skirt but decided at the last minute that I didn’t like them together and threw this skirt on as a last resort.

I can’t decide if his gushing over my outfit means it’s a total winner or if it’s just his job to gush. Regardless, I’ll take the compliments and put this outfit on the winner list. houndstooth-sweater-pleated-skirt-3Linking up with Fashionably Employed | More Pieces of Me | On the Daily Express

    Yes, that’s the best! Sometimes I can tell I’ve gotten it right by comments I receive (and that’s always nice!), but usually for me, the best positive reinforcement is a look. It is hard to describe, but I know it when I see it. You see someone looking at you and you realize they’re looking just a little too long…more than a glance, they’re really taking you all in. I know when I give people that look I’m usually thinking “why don’t I look that cute today?!”

    I totally agree. Sometimes you take compliments any way you can get them!

    One question though… has that houndstooth skirt been featured in a post? Much like pin stripes, I can’t seem to get enough houndstooth and would love to see it!
