This is one of my favorite outfits because it looks like a skirt and shirt, but it’s really a dress.I think the length is appropriate and I like the pop of color, but it’s not enough to be too distracting or be noticed (which is why I stay away from wearing prints at a wedding).For years I struggled with what I should wear, as well as balancing the desire to be functional, professional, and represent my brand.To be honest, when I look back to outfits I wore my first year of business, I cringe. I once heard I should dress for the job I want, not the job I have.I particularly like this dress because it was only …at full price.I was tempted to leave the pricetag on so people would know what a great bargain hunter I was.I’ve marinated this blog post for a bit because–well–it makes me slightly uncomfortable. When I look into my closet, I secretly pray Rachel Zoe will magically appear and help me address my fashion woes.
If you’re disinterested at this point, I heavily suggest you mosey on to a different part of the web because we’re gonna get into shoes, clothes, and a whole lotta jsuche.
I wore this beige dress because it was over 100-degrees, an afternoon ceremony, and hosted on a Monday.
A lot of my outfits in the past month were sleeveless because it was hot.
Unbearably hot, if I was being honest, but when work demands being outdoors, the key is to look professional and not necessary like I’m ready for afternoon tea.
What you’ll notice is a pattern of black clothing in my work attire.
For whatever reason, I feel like wearing black is understated and allows me to work without drawing attention to myself.
