This outfit is inspired by a little Dr. Mindy Lahiri and a little by Gwen Stefani.  I love how Mindy wears these adorable outfits on her show. She layers, mixes prints and boldly wears tight dresses in an amazing way!  If you haven’t seen The Mindy Project, check out her style here.  Just love her.  Then I saw an episode of The Voice with Gwen in this adorable (no doubt, LAMB, pun intended) pantsuit with a white collar and it got me thinking about my own closet.  Time to dig out the white dress shirts.  I bought this sweater dress at Marshall’s for $30 (sorry, can’t find a shopping link).  I love sweater dresses and knew I could layer this one.  It is a little snugger than I am usually comfortable with, but with the bone colored patent belt (Target), I thought it looked cute.  The shirt is an old shirt, but what I like about this one are the french cuffs.  Black tights and my new (early Christmas present) over the knee boots!  Which is my favorite part of the whole outfit.  I have been watching Olivia Palermo (love this blog) walk around New York City for in a pair of gorgeous boots for over a year now.  Hers are high heeled and tall.  More thigh high than over the knee. I needed to steal that look.. but no heels for me and my lifestyle and find ones that were as high as hers for an affordable price is nearly impossible.  What I did find were these! They are by Chinese Laundry and I love them (on a side note, now O.P. is wearing a pair exactly like them…yay!)  The earrings are also a change for me –large pearls (faux, of course).  I saw this pair on another favorite blog, Hello Fashion, and it inspired me to buy these from Target.
