OOTD: Monochrome – Silver and White

DSC_0013Hi Fashion Lovers!!!  For today, I thought I’d share a quick OOTD post.  I picked up this dress a few weeks back at Nordstrom Rack.  I immediately loved the simplicity of it.  It’s such a classic style but I particularly loved the silver and white stripes – it’s a refreshing twist on the typical black and white stripe combo.  I had a presentation at work today so it felt like a good polished look for the presentation and a great “feel good” outfit for the first official day back to work after a holiday (does anybody else do that?)

For me, I decided to add the gray blazer and gray tights to really round out the theme.  Of course, I had to add the pop of color with the purse (I just could not resist!).  Overall, I think it turned out quite well and I love the fact that I can easily transition this look from cooler weather to spring in a month or so.DSC_0033DSC_0042

    • Awww… Thanks! You know, that’s interesting… I haven’t ever had that problem with CK… not that I’m tall or anything (I’m not… only 5’6). Fit problems for me usually are due to my pear shape… and I like CK because their usually spot on for me. Interesting….
