Classic with a Twist

July 31, 2017

This dress is hands down one of my favorite wear-to-work dresses. I love finding pieces for the office that are classic enough to be completely work day appropriate, but with an added modern or trendy spin. The dropped hem waist and ruffles on this dress make me feel like I am office ready… but also like I could hit up a salsa class at a moment’s notice haha.

I actually have a number of dropped waist dresses; they are one of my favorite fits. What really drew me to this one in particular though is the length. Often dropped waist dresses are ‘mini dresses’ perfect for a night out or a casual beach day. This is one of the first dresses I have seen in this silhouette where it is designed to be just above the knee- a perfect work day length.

I decided to accessorize this dress with my new glasses that I am obsessed with. I got these in San Francisco last weekend when I was shopping with Kelsey from Blondes & Bagels in Haight-Ashbury. I am such a sucker for big fake glasses, and I love the almost rose gold frame and aviator shape of these. Since they are from a local boutique, I couldn’t link them up, but I did find a very similar pair that I included below.

To top off this outfit I went with a statement necklace and my go-to nude pumps. My handbag is an old one that I actually got in Curacao (random I know), but again I found similar ones for you and linked those up below.

In other news, today is my last day of work before I head out on another mini-vacation! Tuesday I am heading out to Ontario to visit my family for 5 days. I am so excited to see my nieces and nephews and get to just relax. I’ll still be doing blog posts while I am away, but definitely tune into my instastories if you want to see more of what I am up to.
