Navy & Stripes

It’s Top Tip Thursday… check out http://www.facebook.com/DressWPurpose for today’s tips.

My Purpose: Today I have my amazing monthly Professional Women’s Fellowship networking meeting and then it is off to the office.  I have to admit I am cheating today… this should be day 4 of printed skirts but I ran out of printed skirts yesterday (lol) so I thought I would give the illusion that I was wearing a skirt when in all reality I am wearing a maxi dress.  By putting a shirt over the dress with a belt it gives it the appearance of a maxi skirt.   Tip:  Be willing to mix and match, putting this maxi with a shirt-dress gave me length on this 5’4″ frame, well the shoes helped too… 🙂 I felt very inspired this morning by this outfit, who knew… Choose everyday to “Dress With Purpose”!

Since I don’t have an endless closet… although my husband thinks so (hahahahaha) I have worn this shirt-dress before… I say that it is a shirt dress because of it’s length, it wouldn’t be age appropriate for me to wear as a dress but I have had fun putting together with different pieces of my wardrobe.
