The reason I'm writing this post today is to remind everyone of work dresses! Most of us will be going back to our desk job on Monday, and if you're having one of those uninspired days, slip on a dress.
I've been very, very uninspired lately with my work clothes, rotating around a black top and either a black skirt or black pants.
When shopping for work clothes, I've always been more fond of the top + bottom combination because I feel it gives me more ways to style an outfit. For a pair of bottom, I can wear them with 100 different tops to create 100 different outfits! However with a dress, wear it once and I feel as though I can't wear it again for a long time. The cost per wear is more expensive.
However, if you find the right dress - something that you can wear to work AND to drinks in, then you're onto a winner. This particular one by Lavish Alice is just that!
It's a long dress up to my knees, so with a blazer thrown over (yes, I have cold office syndrome so I still need blazers even in summer), it's the perfect work attire. The low neckline, two thin straps and a subtle cut-out detailing gives the sassy snake print the excuse to be seen in a bar as well!
So, reminder - a dress is not a bad investment after all!
