Three times as nice

Casual Friday · Office Appropriate Outfits - Summer

After basically a week straight of dresses I finally got a chance to re-wear (and take photos of) this top and necklace I’ve been loving from Le Tote. Also, these jeans that I showed in my June Shopping Summary.

I really enjoy when I get two items from Le Tote that go together perfectly. It makes getting dressed really easy when I’m not feeling creative.

I’m also debating whether or not to keep this top. It’s super comfortable and it reminds me of a top I bought years ago and wore to death. I used to have a lot of items in my closet this color but now I barely have any. Weird, right?

Anyway, I think I’ve worn this outfit three different times and each time I wore it with different shoes. Once I wore it with my Bucketfeet sneakers. One day I wore it with a different pair of sandals. And yesterday, when I got home, I paired it with my new flat sandals to go to a meeting.  I’ve also been wearing those over and over again. I’m even thinking I might get another pair. I don’t know why I held out for so long!

Another maxi dress?  You bet!  I made this one office appropriate by throwing a turquoise cardigan on over the top.  Isn’t navy and turquoise a fun color combination?

I wanted something that could go from the office to an outdoor concert…which is where I’m headed tonight right after work!  Instead of bringing a change of clothes I decided to go comfy but not too casual.  That’s the joy of a dress, especially a maxi dress.  They’re almost like a neutral palate that you can dress up or down depending on the occasion.

I was originally debating between these sandals or my brown strappy wedge sandals but when I stubbed my pinky toe early this morning and ended up limping I decided shoes that didn’t put any pressure on it would be the better way to go.  Ahh, fashion choices determined by injuries.  So chic.
