Today I'm showing you the outfit I wore to work at the library yesterday. I have a feeling this week will be full of fashion posts, so I hope you like reading them (if not, tell me so!). I'm planning a post on my Irish clan sweater and my birthday shopping haul from earlier this month.
The library I work at is a very small, rural library located in the old town hall and it is the only non residential building in the whole town. When I'm working I'm the only librarian but I have a student assistant. There isn't really a dress code; since it is a small town library in a farming town jeans and sweaters are acceptable. But anyone who knows me well would tell you that I prefer to wear dressier clothes whenever I can. This is probably because I LIVED in jeans as a teenager and am now sick of them.
Anyways, I put together this outfit yesterday and I loved wearing it. I felt classy but comfortable at the same time.
|Grey shirt: Walmart|
Houndstooth Dress: H&M
Booties: Denver Hayes
Bag: Talize Thirft Store
Earrings and Bracelet: Pandora
Brooch on Dress: Michael's
I am so into this bag right now!! I have seen similar styles in magazines for years but they were always so expensive. This one was bought at a recently opened thrift store in town; I got it for $7.00 :) I was drawn to the colour of the bag first, then the style but the price is what really got me! I've been using this bag exclusively for a few weeks now and I'm glad I bought it.
The brooch I'm wearing is actually one my mom bought me years ago when I was making my wedding bouquet but I decided to keep it as a sweater brooch. I've worn it often and it worked perfectly with this outfit,
There's a saying I've heard that I quite like: You can never be overdressed or over educated. I like to repeat the first part to myself when I'm picking out my clothes for the day because I often feel like I'm too dressed up for certain occasions. It's usually easier to throw on my worn jeans and a hoodie when I go out but it's more fun to wear an outfit like this.
