Paralegal Career Dressing: Crikey. I Should Have Ironed the Creases Out of My Face this Morning

Paralegal Career Dressing: Crikey. I Should Have Ironed the Creases Out of My Face this Morning

And you guys know I don’t iron. Even with Starbucks and chocolate mousse, I never felt entirely awake the whole day.

I got a lot of compliments on my outfit today, a Calvin Klein sweater dress I scored off a clearance rack a couple of years ago for $10 (sans belt) and a Target cardigan.  (In addition to covered buttons, I am wildly attracted to pleats.)

Calvin Klein sweater dress ($10 clearance); Merona cardigan (on sale Target); Franco Sarto booties (last year’s deal –  can’t remember how much but y’all know I don’t fork over $ for shoes); Belt (swiped from another dress in my closet)

Are any of you wearing sweater dresses to the law office or legal department?

  1. I've worn a cowl neck sweater dress from Loft to work, though it may be a little short (I can't belt it, or it's definitely way too short). I wear dark black solid tights with it and figure forget it.

  2. This outfit is really flattering on you!

    Reading about how you buy your cardigans a size smaller and leave them open, then seeing this photo, gave me an "Aha!" moment. I've been struggling with a particular green cardi that is just a bit too tight. Duh, I'll just wear it unbuttoned.

    I think the trick is wearing one solid color underneath. Then the cardigan really looks like the star of the outfit.

  3. Louise, thanks! I do buy some cardis to button, and wear them both buttoned and unbuttoned. Also buttoning only a few buttons in the middle is a good way to feature some blouses and dresses. Usually, before I purchase a cardigan, I think about how I'm going to use it,i.e. mostly to wear with dresses, alone, or either way.
