[Fashion] You're all I need to get by....

You guys, I've been watching my viewership and followers slowly but surely climb. You all are so awesome!!! It makes a gal feel inspired just knowing there are folks out there who enjoy reading this lil blog. A big THANK YOU to everyone who's checking in here - you are appreciated!!

Dress: Target (spring 2012) | Cardigan: Old Navy (2010) | Heels: Chinese Laundry (old) | Bracelet: F21 (2011) | Watch: New York & Company | Necklace: ? (old, gifted) | Earrings: India (gifted from MIL)

This was my attempt at making a casual dress suitable for the office.


This dress actually has spaghetti straps, but I figured since it was pretty covered in the bust, a simple cardigan over top would make it office-appropriate.


I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the asymmetrical cardigan but I thought the hem actually added to the overall outfit.


This necklace is an add-a-pearl necklace from my Grandmother that she gave me when I was just a little girl. Do you have any childhood fine jewelry pieces that you've held on to?

    1. Thanks!! I love great summer dresses but so many of them don't cover enough for the office. I've been trying to figure out ways to incorporate as many as I can into my work wardrobe.

  7. Love this color on you-it's gorgeous. The dress is perfect for the office since it covers the chest area. I would have probably tied the cardigan in the front, but that's just me. Crushing on your bracelet!
