Day 9 of 10… Taking the shirt-dress back to coat status, I’ve paired it with the silver cami and pencil skirt. My own personal red paisley scarf adds a dash of colour to the monochrome outfit, and the snake heels bring some flair to my feet.

Cinching in the waist with a soft leather belt looped multiple times and tied with a bow adds more structure to the loose ‘coat’.

If you’d like to catch up on why I’m styling a shirt-dress in ten different ways, you might want to read my first post, which explains the whys and wherefores of the #10x10challenge and #onedressthirtyways. Tomorrow I will post about the last outfit in the challenge. I hope to post more style blogs like this regularly.

P.S. I do apologise for my grim expression in the photos – I’m not unhappy, just forgot to smile in the stress of trying to get my camera to focus. I promise I will do my best to look more cheerful tomorrow.
