Work to Happy Hour

Sunday, June 05, 2011







Ensemble:
Cardigan: Mossimo for Target
Dress: NY&Co Circa 3 years ago
Strappy Pumps: Colin Stuart for Victoria Secret
Jewerly: Vendor from I-Fest 2010

The idea of wearing pants to work right now, drives me crazy. It's so hot, and all I can think of is them sticking to my legs like glue and sweating all day. So I much prefer to wear dresses that allow airflow. Unfortunately this dress on it's own (as shown below) is a little too inappropriate to wear to work without a cardi, or a blazer because of the "chestal area". So I belted this SHORT-SLEEVE cardi over it with a cute red belt. I loved the look and it made it perfect for work. BUT AS SOON AS I LEFT THE OFFICE I lost the hot a** Cardi and belt! haha
