Above is what I consider dressing it up. As you can see I wore my nude patent leather pumps and belted my shirt at the waist.
By switching to flat brown sandals and adding a jean jacket I made the outfit a bit more relaxed. If you are paying close enough attention, you can see that scrapping the waist-belt was a last minute decision, as I have it on in one of my dressed down photos and not the other! Woops! I went with the dressed down version today at work. It ended up being a bit too hot for the jacket but it worked in the morning!
So there you have it. There are always ways to mix up an outfit!
