What I Wore- Vaguely French

I”m a pretty lucky gal when it comes to the dress code at work. Basically, there is none so long as I look presentable. No suits, no uniform, I don’t have to hide my tattoos and I certainly don’t have to limit my creativity come costume season. That said I hesitate sometimes to post pictures of my favorite outfits here. Would it be lame to run into someone and I’m wearing the same thing over and over again? Should I care?

Today I’m feeling generous so I’ll let this one slide. This dress feels vaguely French due to the scoop neckline and the stripes. I’m Cajun French on my dad’s side so that works for me.
I love a dress with tough looking boots and no these aren’t Frye. I picked up these vintage engineer boots when I still lived in Arizona. I’ve owned them for a few years now and I’d like to think they go with everything. 

Two years ago I got hooked on sea horses when I went to the aquarium for the first time in ages. They float around like sea nymphs, some of them so dainty and small that you can’t believe they even exist. These earrings look more like sea dragons to me, which is even better.

A good cuff bracelet is always a chic move. Erin of Armoire was sweet enough to give this to me as a gift  last week and I’ve already worn it twice!
My favorite sweater, which I wear seemingly on a daily basis. I throw it on over everything, even over PJs.

  • Thanks so much for your comment dear. Its so great to see that people actually read what Im posting and not only look at the pictures and say something like: oh you look great..
    So you really made my day! 🙂

    I do not have a certain dresscode at work either (thank god) but I always feel kind of insecure when it comes to showing my tattoos. in the end thats what Im doing but there’re still those thoughts like: omg what if my boss asks something stupid about them? Hope you know what I mean.
    Anyways, I like the huge tattoo on your arm, as far as I can tell. Eventhough Im not gay at all I got a huge obsession for beautiful girls and gorgeous tattoos so you’re one of my favorites now 🙂 I’ll follow – definitely!
    Have a great weekend and all thebest from Vienna,

  • wow, i love those earrings! i’m jealous though because i do have a work dresscode and it makes putting on clothes m-f not fun. One time i wore JCrew corduroys because it was chilly out and they told me that they looked like jeans. They were maroon corduroys! sheesh.
    🙂

  • I completely adore those boots! I like to mix tough and feminine, too. Also – I can totally relate to not wanting to share your fave outfits online! lol
