Dressing professional does not mean sacrificing style. I like to take items that would typically work in a corporate world but add my own twists to it. I adore this tweed dress. It's got cute cap sleeves and the pleating down the front is just the right amount of detail. It looks great on it's own, but it was a bit chillier that day so I put on the cardigan and then wrapped the belt (which came with the dress) around both. The patent Loubs played off the belt, which finished the look. I wore minimal jewelry since the outfit had so much detailing with the belt, the pleating and the buttons on the cardi.

am not brave enough to try the pull all your hair back look, however Nicole always does it so beautifully.
