21 Day Challenge: Day 17 - Repair it and wear it

Outfit Details:

dress - Target, shoes - Expressions (The Bay), necklaces - vintage and Forever 21

Back in the day, before Maya was born when I used to work in an office, I practically lived in my wrap dresses. Now they sit sad and forlorn in my closet, waiting for the day when I no longer have the luxury of doing what I do from home.

This Target dress is one of my less "work-ish" ones and has the potential for being worn on a daily basis. The problem lies with the length. Even back in my office days, I thought the hemline bordered on frump city and has been sitting in my sewing pile to be hemmed. Then this challenge came, and I was suddenly forced to go actually tackle something from that pile... so 15 minutes later... voila!

Still a little too work looking for my taste, so I switched over to flats before leaving the house.  Hmm, still not sold.  Any ideas how to make this more fun and less work-like?  A cardi maybe?

Awe, what a cute dress! I really like it with the red flats... maybe you could try to belt it and add a chunkier necklace? A cardi would definitely dress it down a bit, too! This dress is sooooo flattering, I need to invest in a nice wrap dress.

I think a jean jacket would look nice with it...and some flat sandals.
