Gray & Gold

by Jessica Sturdy on December 10, 2013

I got this dress back in September before my trip to LA and only got the chance to wear it once before summer bid adieu. In an effort to break out of my casual rut, I decided to wear a dress, a glittery belt, and sequin pumps to work last week. No particular occasion, just to feel a bit more snazzy!

Speaking of bow belts, I feel like they are the perfect accessory for almost any outfit during the holiday season! See my favorites below…

Those shoes are a dream! I love some sequins or sparkle in a work outfit (or any other outfit for that matter!) even if people do give me some strange looks.

Ah, you look so cute & festive! Love the sparkly bow belt! I did the same today, dressed in something festive and shiny for work, haha and everyone is asking where I’m off to and commenting that I look fancy. ‘Tis the season has been my response! ;)

I’ve never been a turtleneck girl; however, I’ve seen the J Crew ones everywhere & I may just have to buy one, or three! Great outfit. I agree, sometimes you just want to get dressed up, even if it is only at the office.

Love how you remixed this dress from the last time you wore it — I haven’t broken out my turtlenecks yet, but with the temps hovering below freezing this week, I think it might be time!
