Work Wear: Grey Sweater Dress + Red OTK Boots

Work Wear - Grey Sweater Dress Red OTK Boots

The weather here in Atlanta lately has been on one.  Within these last 23 days of January, we've gone from freezing rain one day, snow the next and just over the weekend the temps reached the mid 60's.  Crazy right?  The day I shoot this look the temps were in the low 30's.  Kaylin (my photographer) and I almost froze to death.  

Work Wear - Grey Sweater Dress Red OTK Boots

How many times have you purchased something and forgot you had it until you went looking for something else?  That's exactly what happened with this grey sweater dress.  I've had it for about 3 years and have only worn it twice because I keep forgetting that I have it.  The first time I wore this grey dress was here I didn't do it justice.  This time around I put a little more thought into how I wanted to style it.  I love the big front pockets on the dress, it adds character.  Although it's a turtleneck, I like that it's not to tight on my neck.  What I dig most about this sweater dress is the color.  While grey is one of the more popular colors in the cooler months, this light shade of grey is a much better option to brighten up this work wear look.  

Of course the dress I'm wearing today is no longer available, but you know I stay looking out for you.  Below I've linked to a few options that would definitely work if you're wanting to recreate this look.  This grey sweater dress from H&M is a super cute alternative.  And Shein's version hit the nail on the head with this sweater dress.  Check out the SHOP THE POST link below for a few other options.  

The color red has never grown on me until now.  All of a sudden, I'm crushing on red shoes.  And these boots, bbaaaabbbbyyyyy!  Are e-very-thang!  Did you catch the first time I debuted these candy apple red OTK boots?  Go here.  I am in love with these boots from Shoeland (and so is hubs - wink.)  I wanted to make a statement and these boots did just that.  The pop of color for sure took this look to the next level.  If you're not in the otk boot trend at the workplace, these red Asos booties are a great second choice.  And these too from F21.  I paired this look with my fave black moto from H&M ( sold out, but this one from Asos is a nice runner up and this Forever 21 grey handbag from a few season's ago.  

I hope you like this look as much and I do and that it inspires you to step out of your comfort zone and be willing to try something a little different.  Drop a line in the comments and let me know what you think about this look.

If you notice I barely moved from the spot I'm in.  The reason is because there is about a 15 foot drop behind me and I was scared out of my freak'n mind.  Why didn't I just take the shot somewhere else you ask.  Wellll, I really wanted to get a shot with this pole and then a car pulled into the spot I was going to stand in.  Can't you see the fear of heights on my face?

Back to the earlier topic... I need your vote.  All you have to do is follow this link and vote for me as Favorite Thrift Style Blogger.  *There are other categories that are required,  so you can either select randomly or vote for your actual fave if you have one.  And of course tHaNk yOu!!

Windowpane Print + Loafers

Hello my name is Melodie and I am a shoeaholic.  I purchase at least 2-5 pair of shoes a month.  My shoe addiction is so bad that this is my first time wearing these patent loafers from JustFab.  Man, can you believe that I actually bought these shoes in 2015!  I'm sure you'd like to know what took me so long to wear them.  Well I forgot I had them.  Anywho, I'm so glad I found them because they are a perfect fit this look.  These windowpane print crop pants are part of a two-piece suit from Target, but I decided to break up the suit and pair the pants with a classic white button shirt, a closet staple and this fuzzy burgundy cardigan.  The two-tone chain was added at the last minute because I realized the outfit was plain looking without it.  I went with a grey handbag, because your bag doesn't have to match it just has to work with the overall feel of your look.  I like that this outfit is great for the office.  Would you were this to work?  Let me know below...

Happy New Year!  This is the first post of the year!  Noticed anything different?

I've updated the blog.  What do you think?  I've only been blogging for less than 2 years but I'm proud of the progress that I've made and there's more changes to come.  If you haven't subscribed, you can 

here

.

One thing I'm most proud of is that I've really started to like myself.  Although I'm not perfect, I can look at myself in the mirror and built myself up instead of picking out my flaws.  I didn't make any new year resolutions because I had already started making resolutions in 2015.  My goal for 2016 is to really put my best foot forward and stop being afraid of shoulda, woulda, coulda's.  I plan to be very intentional in

EVERYTHING

I do.  Don't believe me just watch!

So a couple of weeks ago I share a post of my

ShoeDazzle

 holiday wishlist (

here

).  One of the items on the list was this "cozy turtleneck tunic

sweater 

.  I liked both the color and the style of this sweater.  Would you try a monochromatic look?
