This was another one of my “networking” outfits, where I dressed like I was going to work so that I would blend in with the people I met with, who were (of course) wearing jeans.

I went kinda matchy matchy with the shoes, which isn’t usually my style. But when a dress already makes a big statement, I figure I don’t need to do a contrasting shoe. As long as I’m still living in the real world and not on Planet Fashun, this approach seems appropriate. But as you can see below, I can’t seem to NOT wear colorful accessories with this dress! Next time, I think I’ll wear it with a black leather jacket and black pumps.

  1. If you wore it with nude pumps and nothing else bright you wouldn’t be you! I love this dress on you, and all the different ways you’ve styled it too. I understand not wanting people to think you’re a bit wild & crazy with what you wear when you’re networking – I’m guilty of putting crazy amounts of colour together too.

  2. This dress is so fun, I think it definitely lends itself to bright accessories! But you definitely still look polished. I really like your bag- it lends a professional and practical vibe to the outfit.

  3. Thanks to you, I have that dress too, and I love it. I’m not as adventurous as you, so I usually wear it with nude pumps or beige boots.
    Someone even asked me if it was from Anthro!
