I like the mix of dressy and casual in this one. A red pencil skirt and sexy shoes are dressed down with a slouchy dolman-sleeved tee and an unstructured leather tote. I’d wear this outfit with my hair pulled back in a low ponytail, a pair of oversized glasses, and a couple of bracelets. Easy, but pulled together.
I was putting this outfit together and thinking “hmm, this is a little dressier than I’ve been doing lately. Where would I wear this? It would be perfect for a speaking engagement, but when would I… oh, right! I’m speaking on a panel at Tech Week! This would be perfect for that.” And it would be, except for a little thing called shipping. I’m speaking this Saturday at 11am, and I don’t need anything badly enough to overnight it. And yes, I can go out and actually pick up these things, but not with a toddler and a baby in the middle of Chicago’s biggest heat wave in five years. Oh well, ’tis not meant to be.
The feminine top (with a cami underneath) would be cute with a colorful pencil skirt and heels. The black bangle and pink earrings are a nice contrast to the frilly top, and I like the unexpected green of the nail polish. And then the book clutch is just perfect.
So there you go. That’s what I would be wearing this Saturday had I planned ahead. (I have a perfectly fine dress that I’ll probably wear instead.)
There are so many cute options for camera bags and straps these days. Which would you choose? There are a couple of fun bonus items to pick from too. I’ll show you my choices below.
