I rarely wear orange, but when I do … I go all out, apparently. Thank goodness this greige blazer goes with everything because I was feeling rather stumped by this dress the morning I decided to wear it. I didn’t want to default to black again, but I also didn’t want to be too bright, even on a Friday. I do like that the blazer also “adults” this dress a bit, which is probably needed to make it a viable (albeit casual) work option.
Both the blazer and the dress were thrifted, and cost about $20 altogether. My cost-per-wear metrics are getting better every day, you guys. That’s another wardrobe stats post, for another day. (Two in one week? I wouldn’t do that to you.) The shoes and bag are closet faves, and proof that those two categories are worth upgrading. You can get away with a lot, when your shoes and bag are on point. That’s my theory, and I’m sticking to it.
