It's a Bib, Baby

Dressing each morning has been fun this week because I've rotated into the wardrobe a few Fall/Winter pieces that have been tucked under my bed since last spring. This gray wool dress is one of them - it's perfectly "Sara" thanks to the classic cut + feminine details (in this case a ruffled bib collar and pockets). I've not yet bought tights, so made do with a pair of leggings since this dress is too short to do without a little extra leg coverage.



The bib collar is fun but also makes me feel a little like an overgrown baby when I'm eating. I'm always self-concious that I've dropped food onto the bib. Because that would be so like me!



The clothes:
Black jersey bolero - Lane Bryant
Gray wool dress- Gap
Leggings- Lane Bryant
Ballet slippers- Designershoes.com
Vintage flower earrings - Great Grandma Midge
Zebra Belt- Merona, at Target

  1. I like the dress, it's such a basic piece you could remix it in lots of different ways :)

  2. I have a question for you... I want this dress from old navy

    I wouldn't know how to winterize it though. Maybe some black boots, but that is all I got... Help?

  3. That's a really great dress, Leslie! Boots are definitely one way to go in winterizing it. I would also add a long sleeved t-shirt or turtleneck underneath (make sure neither are bulky). Tights and booties or leggings and flats would also make it more seasonally appropriate. Go for it!

  4. What a cute outfit! The leggings really work and I love the belt -- great finishing touch! LOL on the bib comment! I already bought a few pair of tights at a sale -- lots of colors and patterns -- so I'm ready to go, but have only worn one pair so far with a skirt. But at least I'm ready! Did your ballet slippers from designershoes fit true to form?
