happy hearts

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!

  1. I agree that the blazer is a cure-all to making any outfit office appropriate. I love the dress as a top trick – I need to do that more often. And the button down shirts under sleeveless dresses to “winterfy” them for the colder weather is genius – another one of my favorite tricks!

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you!
