Leather and Roses

Dress: Topshop, jacket: People's Liberation, tights: Urban Outfitters, boots: Frye, necklace: ? (old).

I received this dress from Topshop this week and couldn't be happier with it. It is really comfortable, looks great with tights and boots and is long enough to wear to work. I had been admiring this dress for a while and finally took the plunge and ordered it. As a rule, I usually stick to dresses and skirts that are knee length or longer for work. My work doesn't have an official dress code, but as a high school teacher I tend to err on the side of caution with the clothes I wear. I sometimes find it challenging to put together outfits for work that fit my personal style but are still conservative enough for the environment I work in. Do you find it challenging to express your personal style at work?

  4. Love, love, love the dress. I love remixing summer dresses into my fall wardrobe. This is very edgy with the added biker jacket and boots.
