February is all about from Day to Play! I'm focusing on showing different ways of styling the same piece - whether that be for work to weekend or day-off to date-night! Today, I wore a vintage wool sweater for a nice Friday off with my kids - it's Teacher's Convention which means there's no school while the teachers learn and I take 3 kids to a calm Walmart. Win win...? I digress. My first look:
Sweater $4.90, white shirt $3.50, polka dot denim $5.60, Sperry's loafers $9.80, cobalt bracelet $2.10
all VV Boutique
The pattern on the sweater is so gorgeous but the shape is so very vintage with the dropped shoulder, narrow waist, and, er, mock neck collar, so I added the white collar top to balance things out...
I think it helped!
I'm preppy and I know it.
But who's kidding anyone? That nice white shirt is simply not that comfortable for momming around. What I actually wore for my day is:
Black Miz Mooz boots and black tee from my closet plus a navy scarf $3.50 because
Now, despite not actually going on a date, I got dressed for one! I'm not sure how exactly to make a mock-neck wool sweater sexy, but I tried.
A black pencil skirt never hurt anything.
Suede BCBG booties never hurt anything.
Hair not in a mom-ponytail and dangly earrings never hurt anything.
My husband happened to be sitting there when I was putting on my fake-date outfit and he was the one that suggested the skirt. There is something inherently sexy about a pencil skirt. At least that was the message I got from my hubby. Wink wink.
So there you have it - two fake outfits, one fake date...
And one vintage sweater from day to play!
