What NYC Recessionista Wears: Tiny dots

Any day where you can wear a simple and comfy dress and leggings to work and still feel put-together is a good day…

I bought this dress in the late fall at LOFT, and it’s only the second time I am featuring it in an outfit post — which means I should really start mixing things up more!  Maybe next time, I will try tucking it into a skirt, or layering a chunky sweater over it.

LOFT dress / Ann Taylor necklace (similar) / Modcloth belt (similar) / LOFT cardigan (similar) / Madewell leggings / J. Crew boots (similar)

This dress would have a completely different shape — meaning no shape at all — if I didn’t belt it.  It’s always important for me to define my waist.

One of my favorite color combinations is red and turquoise — I think the pendant really pops against the dress.

Do you have that favorite pair of boots that you just wear again and again? How long have you had them?  I’ve had these for almost four years now.
