How adorable is this blue striped dress? Guess what, it has POCKETS! It’s one of those timeless classics (like I like to share in my OOTDs) that you can wear for years. And it’s extremely forgiving on your curves! It’s one of those pieces that makes you feel different when you put it on. You can see the other 2 colors it’s available in here! One of the reviews says there isn’t enough shape which I found to be the opposite – the shape was great. The top of the dress does run small so if you’re large up top, size up. You can cinch the waist to give you all the shape you need!

Also got a few more requests for my affordable everyday jewelry so I linked my rings here and my necklace above!

OOTD 3.18.19: White Ruffle Top and Affordable Beige Flats

I can’t get over how affordable these flats are! There is still padding in the sole and I love the lines on them. They’re not crazy thick so they do bend with your foot and they’re not the most luxury flat, but they are great quality for the price point! They also come in black if you’re looking for affordable work flats!

This white top is the same one I wore yesterday on Instagram! The exact one is sold out but I linked to this season’s version here! It’s equally cute!

White Button Down | Tank Dress (old) | Tan Pumps | Gold ‘J’ NecklaceGold Stacking Ring | Gold Pave Ring$20 iPhone Case | Cactus Popsocket | Work Tote BagLipstick in ‘Currant’

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!

White Faux Wrap Top (under $50, comes in 9 colors!) | $12 Layering CamiSimilar Green Denim (budget friendly option!) | Tan Pumps | Gold ‘J’ NecklaceGold Stacking Ring | Gold Pave Ring$20 iPhone Case | Cactus Popsocket | Work Tote BagLipstick in ‘Currant’

This white faux wrap top hides EVERYTHING. It’s insanely flattering and under $50 which I love. It also comes in a ton of colors and I fully intend to go back for the black. Just like yesterday’s work to date night top, this top can also be dressed up for date night! I’m wearing this $12 cami under it for an extra layer of warmth! This cami is another workwear essential for me because I layer it under so many things throughout the year. It just smooths everything out and they last for years. I have about 5 of them and they’re always in rotation!

 

Here are some more cute work blouses that will last you years and years!

 

I also love these suede pumps that I get from Amazon! They’re insanely comfortable especially if your feet are sensitive to high heels. They run true to size and elongate your legs especially in the beige color. The brand is legit too (Sam Edelman) so you don’t have to worry about quality! They do come in about 25+ different colors too so there’s something for everyone!

I can’t believe this top is now an extra 40% off! If you’ve been following me on Instagram for awhile, you know I love finding tops that you can wear for multiple occasions. There’s nothing worse than only having a work wardrobe or only having a weekend wardrobe. I’m all about the pieces that can do both! This top is one of them! Not to mention I get so many compliments on it whenever I wear it. I also own the burgundy one (also 50% off)! Check out my Loft favorites for more items on sale right now!

Y’all know these skinny jeans are my favorite. I’ve been wearing them for you guys for 2 years! Get yourself a good pair of denim that actually fits. If you struggle with finding denim like I do, try these. They are worth every penny, trust me. They’re also amazing for us curvier girls!! I wear them over and over and over. They have held up so well and are 3 years old!
