What I’m Wearing: The I Don’t Have Time for Outfit Pics Edition


I think I’ve mentioned that it’s cold outside.  Couple that with the fact that it’s the holidays and my energy and time has been wrapping up an insanely busy work season, shopping, wrapping up actual gifts, cooking and spending what limited time I have left with my family, I just haven’t had time for outfit photos.  I’m sorry if I’m letting you down!

I hope this solution makes up for it. Here’s a compilation of one of my favorite outifts from last week.  It’s not the original outfit since some of the pieces aren’t available anymore, but it’s probably a much cuter version (and if I will it hard enough, maybe this bag will become mine).

Pear Shaped Pointer: Throw a silky blouse under your sheath dress to add an extra layer of warm.  Throw your favorite statement necklace on the outside, add a fun blazer and your outfit is complete.  And the layers will help you get from the freezing outdoors to cold conference rooms to a toasty warm restaurants.

What To Wear To Thanksgiving: Layered Sheath





Looking for something to wear for Thanksgiving but saving all of your shopping budget for Black Friday deals? Then I have a solution for you – make something in your closet new again by layering!  My friend Lauren, who graciously modeled for me again here, has this sleeveless sheath dress that she loves.  She generally throws a cardigan over it.  Instead, I put a fun patterned chiffon blouse under the dress, added  an oversized watch, tights and heels for a change-up on her go-to look.  So if you’ve got a great sleeveless dress in your closet, try layering it with a fun blouse and add accessories to spruce up your Thanksgiving look!
