I have spent a lot of time considering how to wear heart prints at work without looking juvenile. Maybe too much time, actually. But, today I just took the plunge and decided not to overthink it. After all, you can add a blazer to just about anything and look like a grown-up, right? …the back bow is featured in the photo below, but I decided to cover that part up..at least for work. Happy hearts (and a secret bow).
Dress (worn as top): Kate Spade NY ($30 marked down from $90)
Skirt: Kate Spade via Saks off Fifth ($35 marked down from approx $90)
Blazer: Zara via thrift ($7, retails for $150)
Leggings: H&M ($5)
Necklace: Nordstrom Rack ($15)
Boots: Crown Vintage via DSW ($45 marked down from $120)
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I often seem to forget about the fabulous tip of wearing a dress as a shirt. But, then I remember it, and I see how clever it is all over again! Most dresses can be styled as shirts by wearing a full and longer skirt over them. I’ve found that pencil skirts tend to get too bunched up over a dress, but full skirts gives you a bit room to leave the dress below. Try it out!
2) This outfit is a mash-up of a variety of pieces (all featured in different ways below). The skirt, blazer, boots, and necklace were all put together for the above happy heart look. I think taking look through your own pieces (and using apps like Pinterest) helps think of your wardrobe in new ways. See the looks below!
