Bright Green, Black and Mint Pearls.

I wore this Outfit to a very important work meeting, just this Monday. I wanted to look dressy, polished, classy and professional and I think I achieved the look I was going for. A Simple Black Dress can work for such an occasion and the Dress I am wearing is pretty casual, but I dressed it up and made it work-ready here. Which is easy to do by adding a Blazer. Instead of a Neutral Blazer I went for a Bright one. This Emerald Green Blazer was the right pop I needed. Then some Statement-making Red via my MK Bag and on the lips and I was done for the color pops. Last but not least I added some Classy Pearls and simple Crystal Studs on the ears. For my Shoes: a bit of Pink because I wore my Blush/Powder Pink Patent Leather Pumps. It is Breast Cancer AWearNess after all. I got many compliments on this outfit. Here is a Similar Outfit where I paired another Black Shirt-dress with a Blazer and Neutral Shoes. I wore that one for Easter this year. Have you worn a Simple LBD or a Black Shirt-dress with a Blazer before? Do you like this look?
