I’m Jenn Zaczek, writer behind the blog Chasing Louboutin. A native Floridian, I know that it will probably be colder in my office than it is outside come fall in Ft. Lauderdale. Since I recently started a job in a business-casual environment, I wanted to style this look in a way that can easily transition from the office to night. For this look, I folded the dress’s collar under a V-neck sweater. Since the sweater is a bit oversized, the belt at the waist cinches everything together for a better fit.
Behind me in this photo is the intracoastal waterway and the downtown Fort Lauderdale skyline. This area, known as Las Olas–Riverfront, is full of bars, restaurants, and boutiques. It’s a happening place day and night in South Florida. While fall temps in Florida are still pretty warm, it can be breezy and chilly near the water. The sweater adds an extra layer to provide just enough warmth, making this ensemble perfect for an outdoor dinner or few rounds of drinks on Las Olas Boulevard.
ABOUT THE LOOK
DRESS: Ann Taylor “Little Black Dress”
BAG: Asos. This bag cost me about $50, and it’s held up through a lot of use. I used it all over Italy on our honeymoon and continue to use it often. The double-strap feature allows for it to be worn across the body, over the shoulder, or as a handbag.
BRACELET: Stretch bracelet from Ann Taylor Loft
NECKLACE: Tiffany’s (gift from my hubby)
SHOES: Elie Tahari, on sale at Macy’s. The black elastic straps on these shoes make them super comfy!
SWEATER: Double-V Dolman Sweater from Express. It’s lightweight, perfect for fall in SoFL.
BELT: Unknown – I’ve had this belt for years!
