I think I am wearing all non-thrifted clothing today! I didn’t realize until I started blogging that such a large percentage of my wardrobe was born in thrifts and consignment stores. Not that I mind; I love pretty clothing from any source and paying less is always OK.

The black knit dress worn underneath is from Banana Republic, about three years ago. I love the knife-pleated bottom portion, so I often wear the dress as a skirt (plus the dress top is very sheer). The tunic is versatile too; I have worn it with most every solid skirt in my closet. And it’s washable, needs zero ironing and feels so nice against my skin. Win!
There’s not much jewelry, just silver hoops and a couple of bracelets. I like the neckline of this blouse on its own.
I am more dressed-up today than my work requires. It feels ladylike and professional, and gives me a little more internal authority, so I enjoy the change. I could take the dressiness down a notch by adding my denim jacket and changing into flats when I go out for veggie tacos tonight.
Do you enjoy dressing up a bit more than is necessary, just for the fun of it?
