I actually only worked a 9-5 for about 6 months before spreading my wings and jumping into the world of entrepreneurship.
Before that, I worked retail for 6 years. In that time, I had a really fun time experimenting and styling fun outfits. But as for office wear goes, I really do miss getting all dressed up to head into an office. When you work for yourself, the hours are all out of whack (10am can actually meaning 10pm) and sometimes sweats and a tee are just the key to meeting rigid deadlines. Regardless, I know a lot of you girls are living the 9-5 life; and if you’re not an Austin startup (meaning jeans and tees for you), and you do need to look 9-5 chic and professional – I’m dishing on a favorite dress that I found on the racks of Nordstrom–and it comes in *5* really darling colors.
This tortoise-ring embellished faux wrap dress is totally precious with a boyfriend blazer, pumps, spectacles and more. I’m particularly darling to the mustard – especially turning it into a happy-hour showstopper post-work. The black is the most classic, super chic and very wearable. And the dusty pink is just well – darling. You can find more wear-to-work pieces by Nordstrom here and more of my favorite picks for chic & casual work apparel below! Happy Tuesday – pretty girls! XOXO
