gray-blue dress: ann taylor
striped button-up: forever 21
navy sweater: j crew
This look was a pretty blatant copycat of this one by J. Crew from its November catalogue. I had actually worn this outfit before with the turtleneck underneath, and while it was warm and cozy, it looked like one too many layers on me.
J. Crew models pull off a lot of baggy layers because many of them have slimmer, longer figures than I. Wearing six layers, I look more like a bag lady than a supermodel.
This dress is from Ann Taylor Loft and was on sale for $9! Even though it's a small, it's a big baggy on me, so I'm wearing it almost as a jumper over a button-up shirt, which also dresses it up more. I love making tank dresses into jumpers by layering them over button-ups and henleys.
The dress came with a tie, which I simply removed and retied around my sweater. Because it's quite cold today, I doubt I'll want to take off my sweater and have to deal with the hassle of re-tying anything.
And don't mind the bags under my eyes: here's what I've been doing all week.
