Our outfit inspirations range from Pinterest to... supermarkets.
Dress: Threads 4 Thought / Shoes: Dolcetta x Dolce Vita
A huge sigh of relief that I can continue Casual August with an in-office day. This dress, of all things, was purchased at Whole Foods. You know, the section where they have soaps, TOMS, and yoga clothes. They happen to have a bunch of Threads 4 Thought dresses there, and I picked one up one weekend when I was just in the mood a long whatever dress. I'll pay $38 for a dress, but I won't pay that for the pound of South American single origin coffee beans in the next aisle.
The dress has actually been a moderate hit here, one of the (female) partners keeps complimenting on it as I go up and down the hall. (And in particular, she likes the boots.) I do not dare tell her I got it at the supermarket. It doesn't look as casual as it does in the photo (though, certainly, casual for office wear), and has a subtle high-low detail. Anyway, it isn't the last time I'll pick up a maxi from Whole Foods. From my extensive maxi dress research this summer, they average $50-100. When can you ever say you found something for less at Whole Foods?
Top: J.Crew Factory / Skirt: The Limited / Shoes: Target / Necklace: gift from my mom (more NM turquoise, love!)
Another day, another Pinterest-inspired outfit. And more yellow! Today, I vaguely copied this look... basically just borrowing the concept of yellow pencil skirt, striped top, and turquoise jewelry. But I honestly don't think I would have ever put this combo together without seeing that photo. Again, Pinterest for the win!
