If you’re a longtime reader (thank you!), then you’ll know I have frequently worn tie belts. I have made ties into obi-style belts, but I’ve also used single ties as belts, as seen in the collage below.
So on a work day that was cooler and overcast — and knowing I would be in a library with amped-up air-conditioning — I thought a longer-sleeved maxidress would be a good choice.
And hey, I wore a tie to work! 😉
If you’re thinking you haven’t seen this particular tie before, you’re right! My husband recently thrifted this tie on a visit to a local Value Village, and y’all, it’s a Burberry tie. Score! The pattern is a fun plaid with purple, white, orange, and teal stripes, and the Burberry logo — a knight upon a horse, i.e. the “Equestrian Knight” — is scattered throughout.
So yes, I *literally* borrowed from the boys today. 😉
It’s a dressier look for work — literally — but so comfy! And a maxidress made out of soft t-shirt material? #Winning
