In the spirit of experimentation, I switched out my cardigan for a scarf combo with my new sheath dress from Banana Republic. I'll admit, I stole this idea from a mannequin I saw at J. Crew last year and still have a bit of mixed feelings on the look. Yet, it was a great look to go from desk to dinner in Portsmouth. In a way, it feels a little bohemian with the bold colors of the patterned scarf and the red dress mixing together, which is further intensified by the hipster black frames. However, the skinny belt and the nude patent heels (in my mind, a professional woman's must-have) helps tie down the work-appropriate aspect of this outfit.

A big shout out to my friend and a talented photographer himself, Feras, who helped pick the perfect Portsmouth location to snap a few photos at. Not to mention, I think the old town church mixed with the red, white, and blue are kind of spot-on in the Americana department.
What you think? Do you like it or should I go ahead and permanently remove this look from my suitcase? Do I really look like a rabbi-lady? I'll give you a nickel if you can name what song the title is from. Holler at your girl down below.
