During the week, I wear suits a lot. Sometimes I try to push the envelop and get away with wearing pieces that look as sharp as a power suit but not as stiff and generic.
This morning, I was exhausted, cold, and running late, but had to look dressed up. The blue dress is my go-to piece on cold weather days. I reached for the fleece blazer (got it for $10 at a sample sale) just because I figured it’d keep me warm and comfy, and I was surprised to find that the color matches the dress so well. The peplum shape also works well with the pencil-skirt shape.
