A work day little black dress (yeah that’s right – I felt the need to acronym that into WDLBD haha) is a wardrobe essential. A black dress will always be a great choice for the office – it is a classic, professional look. 

 

This peplum dress is the perfect WDLBD for many reasons. First, the length is entirely work appropriate. Second, the sweetheart neckline and peplum detail add a fashionable, trendy element to this classic piece. Finally, I love the material of this dress – while it is tight fitted, it is quite thick and so avoids the dreaded ‘body-con-at-work’ look. 

 

I am on such a rose gold kick right now, so I paired this WDLBD with rose gold accessories that, again, work for the office. I love my rose gold watch – it is one of most worn items at work. Because I can’t always have my cell phone on me (the challenge of being a courtroom lawyer) I definitely like to have a watch at all times.

 

In other news, I got back into Vancouver yesterday after my vacation at my parents. I’m pretty excited to be back at work (I really love being a lawyer) but I already miss my nieces & nephews. It is certainly tough living away from all my little munchkins! I had a blast with them this past week. Did you catch my instagram story of my niece making fun of me for taking selfies?! The kid cracks me up!! Have a great day everyone!

    I love peplum for the office! It's so appropriate and fashionable at the same time, which is a really hard combination to find. And you can't go wrong with all black!

    That's such a flattering dress on you, and I love how work appropriate it is while still being so flattering! I've been all into rose gold too lately; your watch stood out to me in the pictures! Lovely!
