1. if you ever wondered "hey, what does dotty wear at 7am to the farmer's market to get the good michigan peaches and raspberries?" then this is your lucky day.
2. i've noticed over the last few years that i've shifted my wardrobe to mostly things i would wear to work. i have basically three categories: work-ish, lounge/yoga, and fancy dresses. and my closet (now that i can wear denim any day of the week) is about 90% workies, 8% comfies, and 2% fancies. when i first started working, i bought very basic work clothes and fun stuff only for the weekends. my closet was probably 60% weekend casual, 20% boring workies, and 20% "going out" clothes. (we lived in vegas, so my life was a lot more about pools and sequins.)
3. i'm at work a lot of the time, so it makes sense to focus on the workwear portion my wardrobe. i work in a creative industry where there is a wider range of clothes that fit the dress code, so why not buy pieces that i would want to wear on the weekends too? i'm not going to wear birks and sweatpants to work, but the rest of this outfit is all things i wear to work.
