Inaugural Outfit Post!

DSC00450

Disclaimer:  It’s not a fancy outfit.  I really wanted to test out my camera and the scenery to see what I have to work with.  I did, however, think that I was working it!  I might even be smizing! Oh, and never mind the bad hair day.

Having said all of that, here we go….

What I Wore…Tartan Popover

DSC00440 - Version 2

Style File:  Tartan popover ~ J. Crew; Black Pencil Skirt ~ Gap; Belt ~ The Limited; Peep toe Pump ~ Nine West; Handbag ~ Rebecca Minkoff

I wore this to work.  Just a regular day at the office, but I had a dinner meeting afterwards.  The style plan was something comfortable enough for work that could stylishly transition to dinner with colleagues at The Capital Grille.  I have been eyeing tartan/plaid all over the place, but honestly, I’ve never really been into it.  I saw this popover on sale at J. Crew + 40% off and thought I’d take the plunge.

The popover fits a little very boxy so I grabbed a belt to cinch my waist and popped up the sleeves (and collar).  My closet MVP pencil skirt and a peep-toe pump were a no-brainer!

According to Q, a pencil skirt, easy top, and belted waist can easily take you to the office and beyond.

Self-evaluation:  First, I love love love my camera!!! However, I think there are way too many shadows; I need to work on my angles; Scouting locations for shoots needs to be on the top of my priority list!!! My highlighter from Victoria’s Secret and nude lip are KILLING IT!! Ha!

How do you feel about tartan/plaid? And how did I do for my first outfit post? 

Yours in Stilettos,
