7 Looks x 7 Days – LBD Day 3

7 Looks x 7 Days – LBD Challenge – Day 3

Day 3 of the LBD challenge – 7 Looks x 7 Days.

As soon as I thought of this challenge I knew I had to do something with this satin grey and pink polka-dotted shirt! It’s another piece of clothing I had purchased back in February while on a trip to the USA but hadn’t even taken the tags off of yet! I’m not sure why that is, I certainly have had plenty of opportunity to wear black or grey pants and this shirt would “work” for work. The shirt actually came with a matching sash type belt but for this challenge I wanted to emphasise the black, so I removed the matching belt and went with this black one instead. To keep it looking professional I have added a few silver bangles and one of my purple jade bangles, a simple pink and grey beaded necklace, grey tights and my black Prada patent-leather penny loafers.

I like how the pleats of the skirt provide a little fun and flirty kick to the look but under the shirt it maintains a sense of business. The grey tights are one of my favourite pair and one of the reasons I am glad the weather is cooling off…not to mention, if I am running late and don’t have time to shave the legs…nobody knows!! Well except you all now!

This looks is really comfortable and will definitely be making an appearance at work in the not too distant future. Any shirt would look good so I’ll have to see what other options I have floating around in the wardrobe.

What I like about this look:

It can be worn in a professional setting during the day, take the shirt off and change your earrings and could be worn out. You may want to change from tights to stockings.

What I don’t like about this look:

Tough call – I think I like it all.
