BLAZER: c/o Reiss  |  SHIRTDRESS: c/o Reiss  |  PANTS: Elie Tahari  |  BAG: c/o Reiss  |  PUMPS: SJP Collection  |  BOOTS: Stuart Weitzman (also love this cheaper pair)  |  SUNGLASSES: c/o Stella McCartney (similar here)  |  LIP: Nars



You know menswear always gets me, so this double-breasted longline glen plaid blazer was a no-brainer addition to my fall work wardrobe (argh I love it so much).  The tie-neck shirtdress was the perfect retro counterpart, and was doubly effective in transitioning the look from desk to drinks for me.  While the shirtdress may actually be long enough for some of you lucky petite ladies to sport at the office, it was way too short for me.  Therefore, I threw on my favorite tapered black ankle-length dress pants and heels during business hours, and then had these over-the-knee boots waiting in the wings for my day-to-night switcheroo.


P.S.  A newly updated Shop page is waiting for you here.  I added a fresh batch of my favorite fall items and even some gift ideas as I start to think about ze holidays. YIKES, is it really almost November?

    Oh how I love that blazer. LOVE the longer length. But why oh why do manufacturers shut out over half the female population by only going to size 10? Many women over that size want to be stylish also and not everyone is runway model thin.

  8. Great way to turn this outfit from day to night! As a vertically challenged girl, I probably could wear that shirt dress without pants, but I probably still wouldn’t for work! Nice presentation! jodie
