one of my favorite wardrobe essentials is the classic sheath dress. simple and chic this little beauty is a workhorse for me come summer. dress it up with heels and you’re ready for a daytime wedding. dress it down with ballet flats and you’re ready for power shopping and lunch with the girls. for today’s ootd i decided a special occasion alert was in order and i strapped on a pair of pointy-toed pumps. i’ve long been a fan of pashmina shawls since they arrived on the scene more than a dozen years ago so i reached for white. if the temps dip downward i’m ready to stave off the chill. or if my arms haven’t been pumping iron (lately, they haven’t) i can hide them under my shawl.
there you have it ladies – simply sheath.
