|Dress: Baukjen (old, similar), necklace: Hirst Antiques|
Take this outfit, for example: I wore this to an Independence Day (6 December) lunch at a restaurant. Independence Day is sort of a big deal in Finland, and people often invite friends and family over or book a table in a fancy restaurant. And this is one of the few occasions when most men still wear a suit. And women... black dresses / trouser suits are always the most popular option. But, as I find black both boring and unflattering for my own colouring, I decided to go with colour instead.
Do you prefer from-desk-to-dinner looks or special occasion dresses?
