OOTD 12.12.17: Black Sweater Dress & Burgundy Pumps

Striped Fit and Flare Sweater dress from Eliza J at Nordstrom with Black Sam Edelman Hazel Pumps. - OOTD 12.8.17: Black Sweater Dress & Burgundy Pumps by Chicago fashion blogger Visions of Vogue

Black Sweater Dress | Burgundy Pumps (called the “Allegra”, use code JENNA20 for an extra 20% off!) | Black Tote | UGGs (walking to work in them) | Black Coat | Marble iPhone Case 

Ever since I got these burgundy pumps on sale, I’ve been dying for a chance to re-wear them (again and again). I’m a huge lover of the classic pump for the office (as you may have noticed). These burgundy pumps are by Bruno Magli and you can get 20% off with code JENNA20!

I’m wearing this new fit and flare sweater dress with them to keep things classy. I love that this dress is thicker, but not too thick. The cut is one of my favorites too for disguising wide hips. The long sleeves are great for winter too no mater what climate you live in! I’ve found a few more favorites by this designer too!

I’m walking to work in my UGGs and this coat today to stay warm! There is snow on the ground so I might even wear my favorite OTK boots. Last year I felt so restricted by having to layer up for the walk and then being uncomfortable and bulky all day. It also meant I had to sacrifice my style a lot because I was stuck in over the knee boots every day. This year, I learned my lesson! It’s been liberating!

OOTD 12.7.17: Burgundy Midi Dress & OTK Boots

Eliza J tie Neck Fit and Flare Dress in Burgundy for the office - OOTD 12.7.17: Burgundy Midi Dress & OTK Boots by Chicago style blogger Visions of Vogue

Burgundy Midi Dress (Nordstrom) | Black Over the Knee Boots | $20 Marble iPhone Case | Gold Earrings | Gold Stacking Ring | Black Puffer Parka | Black Tote

A bunch of you have asked me how to wear over the knee boots for the office. Well, here is just one example with this burgundy midi dress! I wholeheartedly believe that they are appropriate if done well. I will be the first to admit they can also be scandalous if done wrong but just be careful. No short dresses or skirts!

I love the way they slim your legs with this burgundy midi dress. If you missed my post on the best tall boots for winter, these made the cut 100%. I wore them last year to work, to date nights, and to days out with friends. They are quite versatile! And the best part? I didn’t have to buy new ones this year because they are in great shape. Even after wearing them 2-3 times every week for 7 months!

This burgundy midi dress is another favorite of mine. I love the slight mock neck (it’s not too confining so that it irritates your neck). The material is a good medium thickness too so it’s not too chunky and still flatters your figure. It would also make for a great holiday party dress!

OOTD 12.5.17: Grey Turtleneck Dress & OTK Boots

grey turtleneck sweater dress from Nordstrom - OOTD 12.5.17: Grey Turtleneck Dress & OTK Boots by Chicago fashion blogger Visions of Vogue

 

Marled Grey Turtleneck Dress (Nordstrom) | Black Over the Knee Boots | Marble iPhone Case | Black Puffer Coat | Black Tote

It’s Tuesday and I’m all about the cozy! This grey turtleneck dress is so soft and comfortable that I don’t even mind that I have to sit at a desk all day. While I’m wearing it to work, it’s another one of those “work to weekend” pieces that you can get away with in both settings. This grey turtleneck dress is also not too clingy which keeps it office appropriate.

This is a way to wear over the knee boots to work! It’s harder to make OTKs appropriate with dresses and skirts in my opinion. It’s so easy with jeans and leggings! This silhouette is different though since there isn’t a flare in the dress like the other outfit I wore this week.

Here are a few more of my favorite sweater dresses I’m loving lately if this grey turtleneck dress is not your style!
