Speaking of Clothes…

The downside of having a “uniform” is the fundamental inability to veer from the uniform. This is becoming a problem friends. If I’m faced with an event that requires me to think outside the jean/dress combo, I’m flummoxed. A recent example was a sort of fancy lunch I went to last week that had me staring at my closet like an idiot for 30 minutes before deciding on a DKNY chiffon wrap dress… over jeans. Sad.

If I went off uniform (and won the lottery) I’d buy every single one of these looks from Haute Hippie (found via the city sage.)
I love it all…

And I wouldn’t wear any of it over jeans.
Promise.

I absolutely ADORE all their stuff...ever since I started working from home my 'uniform' consists either of pajama pants or my husband's ratty college sweats from 6 years ago.

I love this Haute Hippy line because it looks so comfy and stylish at the same time...shame about the high price tags, but we can dream right?

And don't worry about the dress over jeans fiasco. Right now I am wearing grey leggings with elastic ankles. 'nuff said.

honestly though- love the dresses but think the necklasses are what make all the outfits pop. Sooo maybe the answer is a great inexpensive necklass over "the uniform" problem solved.

Love all of these outfits...but you do know you have the best dresser in Dallas don't you? Give Julie a call! There are many a day that I wished she lived near me to help me with my fashion. Well, then again there are many reasons that I wished she lived near me...that's just one ;)

i nearly bought hh's little sequin tee dress for a very. very. formal. stuffy. event last month.

the only thing that stopped me was the price...not the shock value it would've provided!

and that model...i've scoured that site for days, it seems, and keep wondering if it's her? or the clothes? i think both. xoxo.
