I wore this to work this morning (minus the sweater because it's way too warm in the store). As I was ringing up for a lovely woman, the song, "Santa Baby" came on and she said, "All you need is a cane and you'd fit right into this song." I thought that was awfully sweet. This outfit came together for two main reasons. First, I didn't have time to take a shower this morning, so I needed to cover my hair with a hat. I love to wear this hat with my oxfords, so that was a no-brainer. Second, I'm trying to wear clothes I don't wear very often. I bought these tights last spring and still hadn't worn them and I've been meaning to try them out with a red dress. (I'm a sucker for red if you hadn't noticed by now.) The red and green floral pattern of the tights seemed holiday-appropriate, so I accentuated the outfit with a green belt and earrings.
