Fauxionable Outfit – Feeling Blue

Some days I can’t help but be a little matchy-matchy in my outfits. With the Spring-like weather, a scarf isn’t needed with my turtleneck top but I wanted to interject some colors to my otherwise boring outfit. The bright blue scarf was the perfect antidote to match the other shades of blues in my outfit!

Fauxionable Outfit – ZARA Wool Dress

Thanks to your lovely input to this post, I have decided to keep the ZARA Wool Dress and have returned the skirt. I wore it out for a date night with G and kept it simple by doubling the wool scarf as a shawl when indoors to keep my shoulders warm. My outfit attracted some attention, as we had a visitor while G was taking my outfit shots!

Fauxionable Outfit - Embroidered Coat Accessories & detail

Close up shot of accessories

Since I’ve been making an effort to blog about  my outfits, I have been trying to be more creative and wearing everything in my wardrobe instead of sticking with the tried and true. The navy shirt is an example. I can’t remember the last time I wore it prior to today and I’m leaning of sending it to the donation pile since it isn’t a flattering fit. What do you think?

Fauxionable Outfit – Floral Print Sheath Dress

This dress is very similar to the H&M burgundy dress I recently bought but it is made of 100% silk, has a slightly longer hem and has pockets! I love pockets for dresses and that along with the orange and brown print to spice up the navy makes it one of my work dress staples.
