Outfit analysis: A simple dress and light cardigan help keep things comfortable without looking sloppy. There's just something about this sweater (the sleeve or body length, or both) that reminds me of those '80s blazers that folks used to wear with the sleeves scrunched up like this. Anyone else get this vibe?
This was definitely a functional outfit. How, you ask? Well, I had one main goal for this day (in case you're wondering, it was Tuesday...same-day posting is a little too hectic for me). I had to take my bridesmaid dress in to the tailor at lunch so it will be ready for my friend's wedding over Memorial Day weekend. So I planned around two things: getting completely undressed in the middle of my workday (and redressed) and having heels to create a similar leg shape as I'd have on the day of her wedding. There are just some outfits that don't come off and on that easily, or don't fall into place as well when you put it back on afterward. But this? This was easy.
Does function or fashion usually take the front seat for you? In what cases do you do the opposite?
