Dressed for: Sabotage

I’m doing it. I’m piling a bunch of snow-weather outfits into one post because the snow is now gone and I don’t want these to go unposted. And doing this is TOTALLY going to make it snow. Possibly as soon as tomorrow. I can’t even help how evil I am.

I feel like I’ve worn a lot of black lately, so I hesitated to post this outfit on its own … but I really did love working the rich burgundy from the scarf print back in through the tights. And this Karen Kane dress is proving to be a workhorse. So nice to have a super basic, comfy black dress with sleeves!

I hit a handful of charity shops during the UK trip last fall, but didn’t end up finding much. I’ve got a gorgeous L.K. Bennet skirt that’s too light colored and lightweight to wear yet, and this adorable star-print tunic. I wore it in a very similar mix a few months back, but like it SO much better with the addition of the like-colored belt.

Wore this for a shift at Corset before I finally admitted that any heel at all was going to make me a grouchy, limping mess by the end of the day. These boots are amazingly comfy, but I am in constant motion at the boutique, so it’ll be flats from now on! If I remember right, the day I wore this leather skirt to work my boss wore her leather pants. So, ya know, love that.

Now let the April snow begin! MUAH HA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.

My real self has every intention of wearing this dress with an assortment of tough jackets and chunky heels for everyday doings … but sparingly. My imaginary self would wear this dress every day. To the post office and the gym and the library and the dentist and everywhere. Because I really do have an inner Stevie Nicks who’s just waiting for the right moment to take over.

Have you got an inner Stevie/Janelle/Dita/Someone-Else who overtakes your personal style on occasion?

When my group of High Powered Lady Networking girlfriends decided to brunch at a trendy little restaurant near Loring Park, I wanted to step up my casual game from skinnies and a tunic. This outfit is just as comfy – those pants are pleather in the front, ponte in the back – but a little more polished and funky. And I had such fun layering up my pendants.

How do you add polish to your weekend looks? Jewelry? Fun shoes? Interesting braids or updos?
