So it’s Monday. Again. That means, most of us are begrudgingly heading to work with a weekend hangover. With the weather having been so nice, this is a particularly tough hangover to get over. This is one time when I support the “hair of the dog” strategy. A little more weekend? Yes please. Unfortunately, it’s time to put on your best business casual and head into the office for that day job. Ugh.

A Dress A Day: Everyday Work Dress (Day 3)

Cynthia Steffe Maya Belted Shirtdress for work.

Navy Shirt Dress (comes in black too and I found a sleeveless version!) | Similar Black Pumps (also love these perforated ones!) | Black Sunglasses | Black Satchel | Lipstick in ‘Bawse’

So excited to continue my A Dress A Day series with something you’ve all been asking for: an everyday work dress! It amazes me how many questions I get about the office! I mean, it makes sense. We do spend 40 hours a week at our jobs and if you’re anything like me, you change immediately into sweatpants when you get home. I guess I always just assumed everyone else led a more glamorous life than I did. You know, that not everyone had the ever scenic view of a cubicle and computer monitor all day long…

P.S. if you haven’t seen it yet, I’ve been trying to Instagram Story my work outfit every day! You can shop all my looks (and anything I mention on there) here.

Taking a stand is a scary, but empowering thing. Talking about real life is a lot more controversial than how cute this floral dress is. It’s raw and hits you at the core. So, I guess I’m just glad so many people read it!

Why I Won’t Quit My Day Job

Navy Blazer | Blue Button Down | White Skinny Jeans | Black Pumps | Black Tote | Black Sunglasses | Lipstick in ‘Swag’

Sticking with my promise from last week about posting what you guys want to see,  I’m talking about why I won’t quit my day job. I still work in an office Monday through Friday. Surprised? That’s why you rarely see me Snapchat or Instastories during the week. Aside from the fact I hate the sound of my voice, of course. Cubicle life isn’t interesting. Layer on fire drill after fire drill (how business-y of me to use that term?) and I forget I even have a phone most days.
