Weekday/Weekend: Freedom of Movement

While I like flowy tops and outerwear, loose dresses usually do not suit my body type very well. It creates the illusion of a huge midsection. Somehow, Stella McCartney's signature loose look works for me. I feel like can move around freely, and even throw in a silly twirl or two. This is pretty important on busy workdays--after all, all work and no play turns Jane into one dull lass.

A casual dress with a pretty print makes dressing up literally effortless. The dress doesn't need accessories, though I usually throw in a simple necklace or two. A jacket instantly sharpens the sillouette for the weekdays. After putting on a pair of shoes, everything else is optional on the weekends.

[The feature: Stella McCartney silk tank dress from Barney's Warehouse Sale. Weekday: Development blazer, Modern Vintage pumps. Weekend: Sigerson Morrison sandals, F21 fleece bomber (for air conditioned interiors), secondhand bag from the last clothing swap, $1 3-rhinestone necklace from Robinson's May a long time ago.]
