What to Wear: Back to Work

Doesn't the first day at work after the holidays feel just like back-to-school? I planed an outfit for the occasion with a new sweater dress I found on vacation:
Dress: French Connection knit sweater dress. More fuscia (as shown) instead of red as pictured. Found it for $30 at Marshalls outside of Seattle. Worked really well with a bold necklace for New Year's Eve too!
Blazer: I bought a suit in the fall for no reason - definitely not the dress code at my office - and have been trying to work in the pieces. Added structure and warmth to the outfit.
Shoes:  I have a ridiculously high pair of black platform booties that I keep at my desk for outfits like this. I love feeling really tall, but flats are definitely required for the walk to work instead. This pair on sale from Coach seems more practical!
Bag: Cross-body bags are my favorite for walking all over the city.

Just add a black trench, a massive ivory and fuscia scarf and pink earbuds for the walk to work in the cold!  I think I need to stop at the florist tomorrow for some tulips to compliment the look.

Aww, I love your what to wear posts. They brighten my day! This one makes me wish I had a job where I could wear sky-high booties and cute sweater dresses. How about jeans and a collared shirt? Not as exciting.
