{outfit} Double Trouble

Lately I have been trying to wear pieces in my wardrobe that haven't seen much of the outside world (either because they are too dressy or I don't have much to go with them). This week it's my Burberry London dress from this Summer. I've only worn it twice (to a Wedding and a Christening) so I decided to style it down for work!  It is very thin so I paired it with tights, booties and my super warm Burberry Brit sweater (previously seen here).  Sometimes I wish I wasn't so much of a shopaholic because I already have plenty of amazing pieces in my closet to wear. But shopping is my social activity, otherwise I'd barely leave my house, so it's okay...right? ;)

Even though I love shopping, I'm going to try to cut down substantially for the next few months and, hopefully, buy nothing new (except accessories if I find good ones.)  I always try to be smart with my purchases but still end up purchasing far more than I need. Ex: I have 17 blazers...and hardly any tops (I'm not a fan of tops, I prefer sweaters)

  1. I'm in the process of doing a bit of a wardrobe overhaul myself -- try to separate the stuff that I wear regularly from the stuff that I don't and fill up any's actually sort of a lot of work! And you should definitely wear that dress more often, it's so pretty.

  2. Love your dress look confortable and that pretty jacket

  3. I'm doing a bit of spring cleaning myself, that dress is so pretty and looks so work appropriate the way you've styled it. I love the checkerboard print.

  4. Cute dress and boots! I'm organizing my closet next weekend when we have a long weekend ; ).

  5. I know, sometimes I feel like if I didn't go shopping, I'd never leave the house.

    Taking some of your fancier items and dressing them down is a good way to go, you wouldn't want them to feel ignored!
