Office Wear October - Out of my comfort zone

Weekend style wearing this schoolgirl-esque dress I borrowed from @curvesinacardigan (she has the best stuff!). Also wearing #citychiconline tights & belt, #payless shoes. Cardigan will be added for extra warmth because damn it's cold here!

I shared this outfit on instagram a couple of months ago. It was a dress gifted to me by my friend Rachael. I immediately saw the high neck line and thought "oh hell no". You see, I very rarely wear high cut tops or dresses - I have a real thing about fabrics touching my neck area, it makes me feel like I'm being strangled. But then I thought "this dress would make an adorable work outfit!" and my phobias dried up. See guys, the power of a good dress!

Sometimes I make ridiculous poses to annoy my photographer (@curvesinacardigan) haha

I paired the super short dress with a pair of city chic wide band tights, a Target laser cut out belt and a pair of oxford heels. I topped it off with a black cardigan (because it was winter and I was cold) and felt very 'sexy librarian' or 'sexy school girl'.

And a shot from the back. This winter I am loving the combo of tights & mini dresses 👌

Sometimes its worth busting out of your fashion comfort zone to try a new style. Every now and then its a victory for clothing everywhere and opens up a whole new world of style. I know I fell in love with the adorable collar of this dress - now to find something similar in a longer cut for summer!
