Oh.My.God. I did NOT want to get out of bed this morning. I had a strange weekend. I was tired the whole time and nothing I put on looked right at all which threw off my whole mood. Whatever.
I thought it would be a worthwhile experiment to try to push myself on Monday mornings in order to coax my lazy ass to get out of bed. I'm calling it "Make it work Mondays" because I like alliteration and because every Monday I'm going to wear something that I probably wouldn't normally wear.
This Monday is a HUGE risk: DRESS OVER PANTS.
Pretty scary. What can I say? I like to live on the edge. Needless to say, I am generally quite opposed to a dress over jeans. It really is a look best left to 1992 while watching my so called life and reading Sassy magazine.It's a strange silhouette.
I love this dress that I am wearing today but it is quite short and fitted. I am not Erin Brockovich so I feel a bit weird wearing it to work. I figured if I was going to try to rock a dress over pants it had better be a niceshort and form fitting dress to try to balance out the proportions a bit. This works I think. Although all I can think about it how cute this would look with black tights(not leggings-ack) and knee high black suede boots. I kept everything else simple so as not to appear crazy. As a special bonus make it work I threw on these earrings that I haven't been able to make work since I bought them months ago. It's a bit matchy matchy with the grey earring and the dress but still....IT WORKS.
