...You Gotta Wear Shades

With a dress this bright, you gotta wear shades! And maybe a jacket to tone it down... This outfit, like a lot of my outfits, was something I wore to work. My career allows me to have some sartorial fun, but at the end of the day, I still need to look professional. So when I'm sporting my unique pieces, I like to help them "fit in" by pairing them with something classic. Sure, this dress is eye-scorchingly bright, but paired with pearls, black tights and a classic blazer, it looks a little more office-appropriate! 

Updated March 2, 2012: It’s been snowing here in Boston (finally?), and I’ve been crazy busy, so our regularly scheduled outfit photos are delayed. But! There's a new post up on my Tumblr today on how to find the best hat for your face shape. Check it out!
