Dressed for: A Happy Hybrid

Already Pretty outfit featuring Raw Earth Wild Sky dress via LISSA, black leggings, black platform booties, Rebecca Minkoff Logan Crossbody

Dress – Raw Earth Wild Sky courtesy LISSA the Shop (newsletter subscribers, remember to use your coupon code!)
Leggings – Yummie by Heather Thomson
Boots – Steve Madden Winola (almost sold out) – similar
Necklace – Kali Butterfly
Earrings – Jenni Leigh Creations
Bag – Rebecca Minkoff Logan (no longer available) – similar shape

It’s like a sweatshirt and a dress had a baby together. And I am so in love.

This dress is from Raw Earth Wild Sky, a company that makes all of its clothes with unfinished seams so you can customize sleeve and even hem length … WITH SCISSORS. Now that is my kind of alteration. Only downside is styles run quite small – this is the XL and I’d say it’s the equivalent of an 8 or 10. (Got a similar plus size option in the widget below.) Wore this to one of my monthly high-powered lady networking groups and was still comfy after my second round of pastry and fruit. Sweatshirt dress, you are a marvelous hybrid.

    I love this outfit, the dress looks so comfortable and versatile! It could be be dressed down with grey or white leggings and sandals, or bare legs, sandals and a more casual purse. I’m getting curious about how you will express your new style in cooler summer clothes…

    Cute! Interesting you mention your hire-powered lady networking group. I, too, belong to one of those and I love it – it’s been a boon to my confidence and motivation. That said, I work in a much more casual professional sector than most of my peers in the group, who are often rocking the business formal at our gatherings. I admittedly feel super dowdy around them even when I’m wearing something pretty stylish within the context of my own work environment. Anyway – just an observation…the little urge to compare ourselves to others, even in supportive environments, can be tough to ignore.

    I am curious as well as to how your style will work for warmer, brighter, summer months. I’ve seen a lots of black, grey, and rather monochromatic dressing – all artistic, well put together, tough outfits. And all completely on the dark side ( horribly nerdy pun alert there).
    I’ve always worn black and grey in non put together, un artistic ways. As someone who is trying to recover from that, venture into color with an elegant, classic look, tough look but not go all frills and girly (that doesn’t feel like a good fit to me) I’m eager to see how you transition to the warmer months and incorporate clothes for the season that are warm weather friendly, and honor the way you are presenting yourself as of late.

    Ugh, love pieces you can just snip away at. I’m a nightmare when it comes to needle and thread so this is right up my alley. And seriously, I’m really enjoying this whole sweater set/sweathshirt everything trend. Keep it rollin!
