Since I started working, I’ve been focusing on putting together outfits that I can wear to work.  Since my work is fairly casual, there are some things I can get away with (not these things!), but of course I still need to look professional.  This dress, in my opinion, is just absolutely lovely!  My favorite details are the pretty pleating at the bust and in the skirt.  Now, if I were wearing this to work, I would add that drapey white cardigan because it is so chilly in my office building.  Simple flats and a crossbody purse (with matching scallop edges!) are cute and practical, since I walk to work.  Finally, to finish things off, as much as I love me some big dangly earrings, I wear simple studs like these to work so that I don’t distract people with the jangling of my earrings :)

Also, just wanted to remind you all that these are the last few days to enter my giveaway here– don’t miss out and I would love if you spread the word to anyone who you think would like to enter! :D
