The slip dress trend is back! And you don't need to look any further than your closet! I wouldn't normally wear a slip dress (and certainly not to work), but I like the idea of it in the winter when paired with a cozy oversized sweater and boots. It brings a bit of lightness to an outfit while playing up a fun and--dare I say--slightly sexy vibe. I kept my interpretation of a slip dress quite covered with super opaque tights, boots and this cowl neck sweater. Since the weather was above freezing, I opted for a lighter jacket to offset the heavy sweater. The resulting look is cozy, comfortable, and chic--perfect for the weekend!
And yes, this slip is pulled directly out of my closet from my bachelorette party a few years ago.

I recently saw a post on WhoWhatWear that detailed the 10 shoe styles that every woman should own. Being a lover of shoes, I thought it was a useful guide to compare my ever-growing shoe collection to. I don't necessary agree with all of their shoe styles (still won't wear a heel over 3 inches), but I do like the variety they present. I compared this list with what's in my closet, and overall, I have 6 out of the 10 styles. Of course, I have multiple of some styles, like the booties and animal print shoes, and I have combined a few styles into one (nude wedge/pump). I also just purchased my first pair of low profile sneakers, which I showed off on the blog last week. But I am missing a few key styles, like the barely there black sandals; and I need to update a few styles to a more sophisticated look, like the gold sandals and red flats. But all in all, 60% is not a bad place to start! Now, where did I put my shopping list…?
What styles do you have/need in your closet?
