We are headed to a brunch today to celebrate the end of the year for my son, who is graduating high school. Woot hoot! I’ve chosen a cute black and white striped dress. Alone, it’s a little plain- so I added this cute statement necklace from Stella and Dot (old) and a black blazer with the sleeves pushed up. Peep toe shoes complete the look.
Sorry I didn’t get to post yesterday! I was still in Vegas at the National Charity League conference and didn’t have time for photos. I got home late last night and will be back to my regular posting this week with links and better write ups! Enjoy your Sunday.
I’ve decided to make this Dress Week. I have meeting with clients again today so I figured, why not wear another dress? Forgive me for repeating myself, but they are so easy!
Throw one on- and the outfit is done! Add a cute necklace, some cute heels- and presto- you look stylish, professional and put together.
Today’s dress is a faux wrap dress- which is why I am using the same ‘before’ picture that I used on Monday. The problem with a true wrap dress, is sometimes they like to come unwrapped. In a business meeting, the last thing you need is a wardrobe malfunction!
A faux wrap is a great alternative. It still has the stylish look of a wrap, but there is much more coverage. I love this dress because of the geometric print. It’s very eye catching- and yet classic being black and white. You’ll notice the length is just a tad shorter than the black dress- which seems a little matronly! I’ve added this wonderful beaded blue necklace that I picked up in a little boutique in Madison Park (Seattle).
As for my feet- they survived a half day of heels yesterday (I spent from 1:00 on in tennis shoes), so I’m going for heels again today. A wedge is actually pretty comfy, and the height is pretty low- so definitely manageable.

And, come back tomorrow for yet another dress! Have a great day!
