I think I've said this before, but it is a rarity that I find a work outfit worth photographing. However, I was pretty pleased with this little number. For whatever reason, my three favorite corporate-friendly cardigans are all Young, Fabulous & Broke (this being one of them). Another is fast disintegrating and I might be forced to do something drastic when it finally bites the bullet. Something drastic like... buy another one. God help us all if no suitable replacement can be found. God help us all.

The stripes with that belt and the neckline--fabulous combination. Certainly photo worthy!

Very chic, and very office appropriate without being boring.

RosaLovesDC said...

The dress is gorgeous! I just realized I never tried on anything by Young, Fabulous and Broke. I must next time I go shopping since I am really loving the cardigan.

Kate said...

Gah, don't you hate when a wardrobe staple dies & you're forced to get a new one. This happened to me with my basic black boyfriend cardigan... I was shocked at how hard it was to find a replacement! Also, I absolutely adore this outfit on you! The dress is so pretty, the color is gorgeous, and I love it paired with the stripes! So pretty!

Johanna said...

I love that Ferragamo belt. Such a find. Perfectly simple.

Jill said...

This is completely lovely. That dress is gorgeous!

Christen said...

God help us all, indeed. I hate when that happens. I have a couple of staples that probably need to be a replaced but I haven't found anything that even comes close to worthy. I love the dress too. The soft pleating makes it fall perfectly. Gorgeous!

This is honestly one of my favorite outfits of yours. This is beautiful! And I can see why you're so attached to that sweater... it's amazing. I love longer striped cardigans!

The material of that dress looks so luxurious. And I love the dressiness of it with that casual but also dressy cardigan!

You look so lady-like and pretty! I hope the cardigan makes it! And the dress is a pretty color too, I just got a dress similar to it in hue and I am enamored with it. Of course, I will always be a fan of your Prada pumps, topped with those bows, they are so elegant.

i love the silhouette of this outft. the draping of the dress reminds me of a ballet outfit somehow (those wrap sweaters dancers wear, i think). and i can see why you're addicted to those cardigans! that one looks great.

Lovely dress!

Kimberellie said...

This outfit is fabulous, as are the photographs. I ADORE the dress. Now I am curious what you do for work...I don't know if you've ever mentioned it. I think I get into this mindset where I assume that no one who blogs works (like me...slacker me). ;-)

But yes, you look fabulous.

much love: kimberellie (with a baby in her belly)

Ana said...

Stripes are definitely my biggest love...especially when thy come with such a lovely cardigan! So right now, my eyes are glued to the screen...this IS the perfect work-appropriate outfit!

Jessica said...

Love how you accessorized the belt and the play with length. I do think the wide striped cardi is perfect with that dress. xo
