As I shared on Instagram, a tank dress is one of my favorite workwear essentials. I’ve had this one for almost 10 years! That’s insane! I love that you can wear it with a button down in winter and without a button down in summer. You can also wear so many color button downs underneath if you get the right color!

I also rounded up some of my favorite tank dresses! 2 of these, you’ve seen me wear before (here and here)!

 

As promised, I’m linking my favorite white button downs at every price point! The one I’m wearing is super old from a brand called Jared Lang. It’s the same brand of shirts that Matt loves to wear (they also make men’s). I love that the cuffs are different and haven’t been able to find anything similar. They no longer make women’s shirts! But if you need a great gift idea for your guy or he needs to be a little more fashion forward, get one for him! They’re a great price here!

Budget Friendly aka The Entry Level

Mid Tier aka The Manager

High End aka The Executive

Here are some of my favorite button down shirts! I love this peplum one for something a little different!

This dress is classic and perfect for the office! The fabric is thick enough so it doesn’t show unflattering bumps. The striped lining is also an illusion that makes you appear slimmer since it draws the eye up and down. It’s just a really comfortable piece!

OOTD 2.27.19: Colorful Spring Dress

I wore this colorful spring dress a few weeks back and am now breaking it out for the office! It’s such a beautiful spring print with all the colors. It’s so comfortable and very forgiving too. Did you see the way it flows on Instagram this morning!

Have gotten a few questions about whether or not these Valentino pumps are worth it and in my opinion, they are. I feel like if you’re at the point in your career where you want to treat yourself with some designer pumps, these would be my top pick. Designer items aren’t for everyone (and they weren’t for me at every point in my life either!) but when it’s right, you want a pair that is comfortable and will last forever. They’re right! I do love all things Valentino!

OOTD 2.22.19: Ruffle Hem Dress

As we transition to spring, today’s Instagram stories show how to take dresses and make them work for the weather where you live! If you have a dress like this, layer a button up shirt under it! It also makes a dress like this corporate in a second. This dress you could also take to a wedding too so hopefully this just gives you some styling ideas on different ways to wear a tank dress. You could also take this white blazer from earlier in the week and wear it with this dress. Another option? Style a sweater over it so that you use the dress as a skirt. Just so many options!

OOTD 2.14.19: Purple Fit and Flare Dress

If you’re looking for the perfect, classic dress, this is for you! The fabric is really comfortable and the cut is extremely flattering. This is the type of dress you can wear for years and years to come. The fabric is also high quality so it will hold it’s shape, color, and fit. Eliza J is one of my favorite brands. Another favorite dress for me (that you guys went crazy for) was this one!

Here are a few budget friendly simple gold rings if you missed my round up last week! Mine are linked above but these are all gorgeous!
