Monday Maxi

Office Appropriate Outfits - Fall · Office Appropriate Outfits - Summer

Last week we had that kind of weather where you can wear anything you want. Dress? Sure. Skirt? You bet. Shorts? Of course. Jeans? Not a problem. So what did I decide to do? Break out another maxi dress. One I don’t think I’ve ever worn on the blog before.

Purple maxi dress with navy cardigan

This is my comfiest maxi dress because it’s super forgiving. The only downside is that it’s REALLY low cut. Right now I wear a camisole underneath it but only because I haven’t found the perfect sports bra to implement Jen’s sports bra trick.

I wore this to work last Friday (and, yes, rode a Divvy bike home in it) and it was the perfect outfit to end the week. I felt classy but still comfortable. Because we all know that wearing a jersey maxi dress to work is like wearing pajamas. Right?

    Lilac! Awww purple is my favorite color. Well, actually… blurple (an iridescent blue + purple) is my favorite color. hehe. Lovely dress!

    Sans cardigan, I think this is my favorite outfit of yours!! I have the knee-length version of that ON dress (which they make almost every summer) and do wish it were cut higher. Lands’ End carries virtually the same dress with a higher neckline.

    You look great in a maxi! I wear them a lot- especially on casual Fridays (probably since I feel like I’m cheating and wearing PJs haha!) And that sports bra trick is GENIUS!

    Looking forward to your recap tomorrow- we seriously had a blast! What a fun day! Thanks again for letting us tag along!

    Looks super comfortable while being very stylish and elegant! Gorgeous necklace, and the lilac is a beautiful color. Interesting mention of the sports bra trick. Most of my sports bras flatten me out and/or create uniboob, so I don’t think they would be the most flattering. But I do have a few “shaper” sports bras that might actually work!

    You rode a Divvy bike in that dress??!? Please do share how you were able to do that!

      I got advice from Maggie on how to ride a bike in a maxi dress 🙂 She said to tie it up around your knees and turn it into a shorter skirt. I just gathered it to one side and used a hair band to make a knot-like thing. Occasional gusts of wind did make me have to use my hand to keep the skirt from blowing up, but otherwise it was fine.
