What I Wore: One Dress, At Least Two Ways

I find I'm wearing this simple black linen dress from GAP (similar) a couple of times a week. I wear it on its own for casual days, and with a topper for the office. I wash it by hand and let it drip-dry and get just a few linen-quality wrinkles.

Today's topper is a cool zebra blouse, thrifted at Monk's in Greenwich Village. Also wearing my vintage tassel necklace from Molly Mutt and gifted sandals from a fab company that's now out of business, too bad.

Are you mixing up your casual summer dresses for work-wear too?

Office-worthy, with shoulders covered.

The dress worn solo in Greenwich Village last May.

Have a super day and stay fabulous,

  3. Chic and cheerful, Patti, as you always are! The zebra stripes really add some pzazz, but yes, office-worthy and elegant. Love those sandals. xxx

  4. Zebra print always looks so fresh! I love linen, wrinkles and rumples and all.
