Navy Pleats and Hand-Me-Downs

I love a classic dress that I can wear to work regardless of season or trend. What’s more classic than a navy, pleated dress that hits right below the knee (and has pockets)? 😀 Some, or perhaps most might argue that it’s an unflattering length for a dress, but I absolutely love anything that goes past my knee! Classy, conservative and still cute 🙂

I found this beauty from New York and Company while shopping at the Outlet Malls – something that I highly recommend for wardrobe staples! I paired it with some strappy nude sandals, and this deep brown leather wallet which was originally my mom’s. I broke my old wallet while she was visiting me and she gave me hers temporarily, and I loved it so much that I ended up keeping it! It’s a great quality piece, and leather only gets better with age. Sometimes fashion isn’t about what’s new and trendy, it’s about wearing something that is meaningful and has a story behind it 🙂 Have a great week!
