40 + Style Fall/Autumn I Wore This Work Wear

Just Add Stripes

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a lovely weekend. I had a good one. I even got to meet up with Cynthia from My Rose Colored Shades for a lady date! We only live about 5 minutes away from one another, but this is the first time we have met, because you know… The Internet… And we weren’t 100% sure the other person wasn’t a serial killer. We met for coffee and talked and talked and talked. It wasn’t even awkward. Yay! New friends! If you don’t already read her blog, you totally should go check it out.

Now that the temperatures have dipped (ummmm… brrrrrr…) I’m back at the layering game. I love this wool dress that I picked up at J. Crew last year, but short-sleeves are not going to cut it. It’s like they WANT me to freeze. I always wear it with a long sleeved shirt of some kind. (Here I styled with leopard and here I styled it with denim.) This is one of those pieces that J. Crew Factory replicated this season, so if you like the dress, you can pick it up there. The Factory version is ponte’ though, not wool.

Where did I wear this? I wore this to work.
