The Casual Dressy Dress

Office Appropriate Outfits - Fall

When I asked for this dress from Le Tote I thought it might be a tad dressier than what I normally wear to work. And I was okay with that.

I ended up belting it because it sort of felt like a giant sack without some definition. Maybe that’s because I’m short and curvy? Who knows. Anyway, I really ended up liking it. The faux leather details on the sleeves are really fun, too. And it has pockets!

And, plus, no one at work asked why I was so dressed up and the dental hygienist told me I looked cute. What? You don’t put on a dress to get a cavity filled?

    Oooh, I really like the sleeves on that dress! I actually thought from your first picture that you were wearing a cardigan over the dress because of the way the shadows on the steps look, but that’s an awesome detail on the dress itself.

      Dang! If I didn’t already have a costume for work I would TOTALLY do a Star Trek outfit with this. It’s definitely giving off a Next Generation medical/science staff vibe.
