Okay, this might be the last plaid outfit for a while. No promises, though. 🙂
This day was filled with volunteering at the school. Library in the morning and helping with a reading event at lunchtime. Comfortable yet nice was the goal. An easy shirt dress to the rescue! This one is from that smokin’ GAP sale (the same one where I got this parka–60% off clearance price). If you are going to get one, I recommend you go smaller than usual. Gap runs big. I am usually a small, sometimes a medium, and for both the parka and the dress I went with the extra small. The dress came with a matching fabric belt, but I liked this studded belt (from my vast collection) better. It gave the outfit just a little more interest. Layering is a must to battle this frigid weather. This plain, white, long sleeved tee has a beefy quality (thick cuffs and collar) that brought a more casual feel to the outfit. Black tights and my ever present suede boots finish the look and for coat, I went with the Vince Camuto Boucle I bought at Marshall’s earlier this year (also seen here).
