When I forget to pick an outfit (or just don't feel like planning anything) the night before, my go-to outfit is always a dress. I have several that are work-appropriate and I just change up the accessories. I've worn this about a dozen ways since I bought it last fall. It's a super comfy dress (love the wrap! it's so flattering too), and it's machine wash and dry. Say what you will about double-knit polyester, but it's come a long way since the 70s.
These are one of the few non-Fluevog pairs of shoes that I've ever paid full price for, although I did wait for The Bay to do the 30% off promo before buying them - they weren't on sale plus 30% off, they were FULL PRICE plus 30% off. This is rare for me. But I fell in love with them at first sight. Aren't they gorgeous? They say, "I'm going on a cruise" to me. A close up for appreciating them in their full glory.
I am actually wearing nylons with open-toed shoes (!) - I need to shave my legs and the nylons hide the stubble. As long as the nylons are sheer enough and do NOT have a reinforced toe, they are perfectly appropriate to wear with open-toe shoes. Besides, I like the way nylons even out my leg colour (I have super pale skin and varicose veins - thanks, Grandad), and the control top is handy for tucking in cami layers so that they don't show.
