Who wouldn’t want to get up early on a Monday morning and don this outfit for work? I love the simplicity of this ensemble. Whether you are Teacher, Doctor, or anyone who is required to dress professionally, this will look great.
I remember when I used to work in a brick and mortar school, our rooms were always freezing. The same goes for when we go to church. I picked this Calvin Klein White Dress with the 3/4 sleeve length because it is perfect for these cold workplaces. You don’t have to wear a sweater over it. The simple A-line style is classic and can be flattering on any body shape. I am petite at 5’1″. This style dress actually makes me look taller and even, dare I say leaner:-). For me, the dress length may go below the knee.
I used to wear 3 inch, stiletto heels with abandon. At 51, my arches are no longer able to support these shoes, especially for work. I also can’t wear flat shoes. I don’t feel “sexy” or confident in flats especially when wearing a dress. These Michelle Naturalizer shoes are not only the perfect pair to the dress, but they are comfortable. I own a pair of Naturalizer shoes that I used during a recent trip. I walked on them for hours without any problems.
There is no rule that you have to match your shoes with your purse/handbag. I love to mix and match sometimes and in this outfit I chose to add color. This Vince Camuto Thea Small Satchel in Pacific Blue with Silver trim is just the perfect pop of color.
To finish the look, I chose these bypass bangle in sterling silver with cultured pearls, and cultured pearl and diamond pendant and earrings. It doesn’t detract from the dress but simply accessorize it. As I have mentioned before I am a ‘watchmonger’ (not sure if this is a word), so why not go all out and use this versatile Michael Kors Reade White Croc-Embossed Silicone Strap Activity Tracker. Yes, it tracks your steps and keeps time. What a perfect accessory. Not only does it make you look fashionable but it also keeps you healthy.
You may find this look at Macy’s. Disclaimer: I don’t work for Macy’s nor do they pay me. However, at least 3/4 of my actual clothes come from Macy’s. They always have a great selection and variety. Since we are living on virtual reality for this outfit, I didn’t choose items that are on sale. However, when I am back in reality, I always beeline to the clearance racks and always find the best bargains.
I hope you find inspiration in today’s outfit.
