Then and Now [Vol. 3]

Office Appropriate Outfits - Winter · Then and Now

I know, I know. I JUST wore a black and white houndstooth outfit. But, in reality, I did actually wear these outfits on back to back days to work. No one noticed (or at least, no one said anything). I’ve admittedly been staying up too late and getting up too early which means my brain reaches for the first thing it sees outfit-wise. And in this case it was a houndstooth dress.

Yet, for some reason, it never occurred to me to wear it until my brain was half asleep and this is what I put on.

Clearly I was saving it in my subconscious for a day when I needed extra inspiration.

This dress was one of my first thrifted pieces that I ended up wearing on a regular basis. So, let’s take a look back at the very first time I wore it!

The black and white dress with the purple cardigan is still one of my favorite outfits. Sadly, those sandals are no more but clearly the dress is still going strong! And, yes, I still have the cardigan as well.

Do you like the purple cardigan or the black cardigan better? Or are they equally awesome?
