I’ve been feeling a bit low lately, friends, and somewhat out-of-sorts. So instead of trying to force creativity, I’m starting to gravitate toward simple outfits. Can’t get much simpler than a dress and boots … but it works. (I’ll admit to throwing on a black pashmina at the office. Turns out this neckline is a bit deep for work.)

Already Pretty Daily Outfit 3/8/11 featuring Coclico boots

I am leading a discussion about style and body image tonight at Flex Appeal (you’re all welcome to join!) and in thinking about what to wear today, I remembered something Katie told me: She said, “People always tell me I look so polished and pulled-together in a dress. And I think, of course I do. It’s a DRESS! It’s polished and pulled-together all on its own.”

Too right.

    Looking gorgeous! I love the silver necklace and how the subtle-ish pattern has peeks of red bringing out your hair and lipstick.

    I totally understand the need/desire to wear simple outfits on days when you’re not feeling like yourself. Sometimes doing any more is just too much effort. I love this outfit – it’s gorgeous in its simplicity and doesn’t need any embellishment! I hope you’re back to feeling better soon.

    I tell myself on low days that maybe if I look good, I’ll feel good – and some days I end up believing it. 🙂 You look so polished and poised in your pretty dress! I hope this low time passes soon.

  • Tara

    The discussion last night was great! Thank you so much!

  • Sometimes you need those go-to combinations. If it’s not broke – don’t fix it. You look really lovely, Sal.
