SIA: The Art of Independence

Office Appropriate Outfits - Summer · Style Imitating Art

A few weeks ago I had a gift card to redeem at lululemon but it was only redeemable at one in the suburbs. So, we decided to make it a date night and head over to Oak Brook mall so I could shop and we could eat dinner.

Dress – Le Tote (same) | Necklace – Le Tote (same at Le Tote, same for sale) | Shoes – Loeffler Randall c/o Shopbop (similar

I wore this dress and it turned out to be the perfect outfit to go along with this week’s Style Imitating Art choice.

The blues, the patterns, and the fact that my necklace is a bead work so well, right?

Also, I want to take a moment to talk about lululemon sports bras. This was the first time I’d ever actually tried anything on in that store and the sports bras were so….tiny! I don’t even have that big of a chest and yet I felt like I was going to accidentally flash myself in the dressing room.  Their stuff looks so cute on other people but I’m not sure how I feel about it. Any of you have thoughts?
