What to wear to the dentist



Vest: Express (option, option) | Top: NY&Co (option) | Leggings: Express (optionoption) | Shoes: Sam Edelman (limited sizes)

I'm laughing at this title, only because it's true. I wore this to the dentist. Granted, I didn't wear this *for* my appointment - the appointment just happened to be at 8am and I still had to go to work after. However, as I'm walking into the lobby wearing faux fur, satin, faux leather leggings, suede studded heels - I realize how ridiculous this must look. At the dentist. But gosh - look at the shoes!! I bought these during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, and, well, today was the first day I've worn them. Tragic, isn't it? I promise you will see them a lot more. For their maiden voyage, I thought it would be great to go black on black and just let the shoes speak for themselves. Plus, the shoes gave me something pretty to look at while I'm sitting in the chair after the hygienist has had her way with me, and I'm waiting for that dreaded moment when the dentist comes in for the final exam and asks, "Do you floss?"

  3. Ahhh! Those shoes!! I have loved those shoes since I saw them in a magazine in like...August or September. I figured I didn't have anywhere to wear them but DUH. The DENTIST!!! My next appointment is in March so maybe I can justify them then.

    1. Haha!! See - if I can wear them to the dentist, that basically means they are acceptable *any*where!! I love them, they're fab and comfy and I demand you have them, too.

  4. that's quite an outfit for the dentist. I love it. I'm sure he/she was impressed. The shoes are fabulous. I wish I had bought them when they were part of Nordstrom's anniversary sale.

    1. I am a firm believer in shopping fate, and in this case, I hope it's fate that you end up with the shoes somehow! Thank you for stopping by!

  5. Your shoes are divine. I also love that Black Fur Vest. I want one for myself. The coated leggings are too cute. I am all about leggings. I, too am going to the Dentist in a few minutes. I haven't been in a long time and I am dreading it. LOL

    I'd love for you to stop by my blog and check out the latest. Thank you.

  8. Ha Ha I love dressing up for appointment like that. I know you went to work after but think about it, how many people come in looking sloppy because it's _ (dentist, etc). My hygienist use to love when I came in (I had a crown) so she could drool over what I was wearing!

    1. Ha - thanks! What's funny is my hygienist complimented my outfit, and the dentist himself kept raving about my French braid of all things. Haha! He's pretty old school though.
