Outfit: Sleeveless Black Dress over a Plaid Shirt, Herringbone Tights, and Bronze Shoes

I realized there was something familiar about this outfit a couple hours into wearing it. Last March I wore this dress layered over a button down top with these exact same tights! Sure, the button down was cat print last time, but there's still a distinct similarity going on. Either way, I enjoyed how this outfit turned out. I layered a new plaid shirt from H&M under my little sleeveless black dress. This dress is worn with tops layered underneath way more often than not. It just works so perfectly as a sort of jumper. I've had this inexpensive dress for many years now and I've gotten a ton of use out of it. I guess a simple piece that really fits well gets plenty of use. Go figure.

Other things that made this dress and tights combination different from last time is the addition of my new fringe ear cuff and my comfy bronze shoes. The ear cuff was a Christmas gift from Jeanie. I love the way it looks but I can only wear it for a few hours before it hurts my ear. The clip on the upper part is too tight. I don't know how anybody wears clip on earrings! It's worth it for a few hours of super cool ear goodness though.

And Jeanie came home while I was taking pictures so I made her jump in and take a few with me. I like this one.



How's your week going so far? I've really been trying to catch up with my blog reading while also pumping out job applications. This is okay when I don't leave the house, but I basically have to stay inside all day. On Monday I got out and saw Big Eyes at the theatre though! I enjoyed it. What's been your favorite movie you've seen lately? I want to see a couple more before the Oscars happen.

Anyway, have a wonderful Wednesday!

The plaid top underneath the dress is perfect and those tights are fantastic. <3 Those shoes, though! You really won me over with those. Love that color and it's an unexpected, edgy twist on such a sweet outfit!

I haven't seen too many movies lately, we're just about to sit down and watch The Help!

I love that style of dress, I have a similar one in burgundy that I love layering with shirts.
