dotty, my outfit process, and jackets

i've been cataloging all sorts of creative young professional outfits over the past year-ish and i've gotten some questions lately about how to transform a simple or casual look into something that's more professional.  so, here goes...

this is definitely the biggest step.  i've collected a slew of jackets over the last few years since they seem to always make outfits look more put-together.

i end up putting my hair up around 3pm a lot of the time, but i like to at least start off the day with my hair down.

well, there you have it!  this is pretty much how i get dressed everyday.  i start with something comfy that i want to wear and then dress it up so that i can wear it to work.
