It's a new month -- March! -- and that means unpredictable weather, St. Patrick's Day and the start of a new season. It's windy and chilly in Atlanta today, and it's also Friday, so I thought I would break out this English Factory dress for a casual day at the office. It's a little on the short side, but it's cozy and warm and just super cute.
Dress by English Factory
Booties by Prada
English Factory is a new brand for me, but seems to be everywhere:
I found this particular dress on ShopBop.com when I was browsing the site during Black Friday, and was immediately intrigued. The pieces are cute and chic, and the prices are extremely reasonable. Most dresses, for example, retail for around $100.
The dress I'm wearing today is sold out, but here is a similar style.
There is a lot you can do with the styling here. I think the dress would look great with boots, though I chose booties. You can tie up the bow-tie, or not, like I did. I let it hang loose like the model photo.
The dress hits me mid-thigh, so beware if you're tall!
Since it's Friday, I'm looking forward to a lazy evening at home with all my boys. Chapin is making a gluten-free pasta dish from SunBasket, and we will have a new episode of Project Runway All Stars to watch. (I'm not a huge fan of the All Stars version, but it's still a fun show to watch.)
Chapin and I are supposed to tackle my closet this weekend, and I'm dreading it. He wants to re-organize it and add more hanging space, but that means taking everything out and hanging it all back up again. Ugh. And with the size of my closet (it's a really a whole bedroom), that will take forever.
