Belted Jumper and Dress, Balenciaga Velo | Print Mix, Pink Accessories, Marc By Marc Jacobs Hillier Hobo

Here's what I wore to work on Monday:



TopAsos crochet shell top in cream
Dress: Glassons black cotton skater dress
Belt: Kmart thin black glitter belt
ShoesNineWest Lovelyou studded flats in black
Bracelets: the usual
BagBalenciaga Coquelicot Velo

Last time I wore this jumper layered over a dress I wasn't too sure about it. When I tried it this time around, I followed the advice left in the comments and belted it. I really liked this look! Kept me warm with the rain and sudden cool weather brought in by the storms.

Linking up with Coffee Beans and Bobby Pins, Style Sessions, What I wore Wednesday, Friday's Fancies today.

Here's what I wore to work today:



ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs Croc-print scarf
Dress: ValleyGirl navy plaid peplum dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs two tone flats blush and black
Bracelets: the usual
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Hillier Hobo in blush pink with silver hardware

I usually pick my outfits out the night before as I have no time in the morning. On Tuesday night, when the storm started to hit our power went out. As it was a little risky trying to find things in my wardrobe by candlelight and not set anything on fire, I just went with a simple printed dress and pink accessories. Added the scarf in the morning for a bit of print mixing interest and to keep me warm as it was still a little chilly.
After a very sleepless night (as Cooper is scared of storms) I skipped doing my hair and makeup and just wore BB cream and left my hair wavy. Luckily, I didn't have any face to face meetings to worry about today, so it was mostly unnoticed.

  2. Storms? That doesn't sound to good! I hope it's not too bad. We've been having horrible weather as well. I absolutely LOVE the first outfit. It's so classy and even has a bit of a retro touch to it. The cardigan definitely looks best with the belt over it ^^ xo

    1. Thanks Nikki. Sorry to hear about your bad weather! We usually have pretty crazy summer storms, just odd for them to start so early!

  18. You look beautiful without make-up, Mica! You really don't need it.

    Love the sweater belted, and for getting dressed in the dark, you did amazing. What a cute dress - that little pleated bit in the front is sweet.
