I wore this outfit to the office on Easter Monday, which was technically a holiday — hence the relaxed dress code. The reality was that I couldn’t wait to wear this adorable Postmark shirtdress, and the office seemed like a safe bet given the silky material. (Home dry cleaning is great for refreshing clothes, but I’m not sure I trust its stain-removal powers, so I’ll have to keep this dress far away from the kids.) It’s a bit too casual (and young?) for a regular work day, but perfect for a more casual one.
I kept things simple, with a black cardigan and bag, but I couldn’t resist adding peachy-nude shoes to match the (detachable!) collar. These Stuart Weitzman flats are relatively ancient — six years old — but still going strong. Back in 2010, I fell in love with them on first sight; I still remember how much I agonized over buying them (on sale) because they cost $150. Come to think of it, they’re still the most expensive pair of shoes I’ve ever purchased out of pocket (along with a pair of black pumps I still wear, which allowed me to take advantage of the 2-for-1 sale at the time). But, as I said, they’re still in great shape and I still adore them. (They also broke in quickly, so they are now super comfortable, like most SW shoes in my experience. The aforementioned black pumps are, hands down, the comfiest 3 inch, non-wedge platform-free pumps that I own). There is a lesson in that, somewhere, I’m sure.
