Fashion Friday : Nine to Five

9-5: Dress Me Up and Take Me Out! The Work Dress


{via shabby apple}

Hello there from FL, Chesli again for your Fashion Friday!

Probably the easiest outfit to put together for work is a dress...because you don't actually have to put it together. It's like the pop-tart of outfits. It's done in a ding, and I leave my closet singing, glory to the heavens, I'm going to be on time!

But the best part to me about work dresses is that they can so easily transform into a dinner outfit, party outfit, anything-after-work outfit! If you need to, you can always throw on a blazer or cardigan to make it work appropriate, such as with a strapless dress. 

I just stumbled upon the darlingest website of classy women's clothes under $100, shabby apple. Here are some of their looks...





I like to bring a change of shoes, a clutch, and fun accessories to exchange with my simple work accessories. Work dresses make such good bases to build upon.




Kick off your flats and strap on your boots!




 Or dress it up! I adore this feel of old, Hollywood class...

Would you wear a dress to work?

Happy dressing!

  1. I like to wear dresses to work! I have actually pulled of wearing a maxi dress to work during the winter with a sweater and boots! They are just the perfect layering piece.
