Country Club












Dress: TJ Maxx (similar save, similar splurge); Shoes: Asos; Purse: c/o Lulu*s

These little laser cut ballet flats from Asos make me feel like stylishly dashing across busy city streets and visiting a country club with a manicured lawn and eating macarons at high tea. I think that clothes (or shoes) can bring out certain personality traits, affectations and desires. When I wear this eyelet dress, it makes me feel daintier than usual and light as air. When I put on my highest heels, I feel like a goddess that owns the world. When I wear blazers and slacks, I feel like the most powerful CEO. It's a lovely feeling to be able to slip into a dress that changes the way you go about your day. Anyone that says that clothes are silly or not important hasn't worn a pair of stilettos...

  20. Agreed! In my previous job, we had no dress code at all but I found my production level was so much higher when I wore professional clothes. Always seemed silly but it just made me more focused! - Melissa
