Pencil Dress For The Office

Reaching for a well fitting pencil dress for a day at the office is never a question.  I always find that dresses and skirts make it easy for me to put together work appropriate outfits.

I wore the dress with a pair of Charles by Charles David pumps that I had been eyeing for quite some time.  I bought them during the Nordstrom anniversary sale for under $70, and I believe they are still on sale.  These pumps are one of the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. I need to purchase a few more pairs to keep on hand. Whenever, I find a pair of shoes that are perfect for work and play, they always seem to get discontinued when its time for a new pair.

Hope you guys are enjoying your long weekend.  Yay for an upcoming 4 day work week.

    This outfit looks great on you! I love how it has stripes, but they’re subtle. It’s a cute, but still conservative and work appropriate! Such a great staple outfit 🙂
