Layering for work

Today we're talking about work attire. It's not always easy to look cute and still be work appropriate, while still getting the most out of your clothes, so why not combine some pieces together? This grey dress has a minimal design and a midi length, but a lower back which might not make it work in all offices. To make it look more professional, I added a structured cold shoulder blouse underneath. Of course this attire is fine if you work in a creative environment, where you don't have a strict dress code. 

Fashion is a creative outlet and I just wanted to be resourceful with my clothing, experimenting with pieces that are already in my closet, which by the way I recommend everyone try. The structured blouse styles up the sporty dress and the statement shoes make the whole look less basic. 

Would you wear this to work?

Have a pink-tastic day!
Kisses.

PS: Excuse the visible ballerina socks, but the shoes cut the back of my feet and I was trying to protect them this way. Didn't realise while taking pictures how noticeable the socks were.

  27. I would probably not pull the outfit off as I feel it might be a touch too young for me but it's seriously freaking cute. I think I would wear it out for a dinner with my husband though, it's beautiful!

    ps: I absolutely love your hair here! It's so full of volume, wish mine is like that. Mine is flat as a paddle. LOL!

  52. Loving how you layered that ruffled off-should top under that dress. Gave it a completely different look! I don't think I'm allowed to expose my shoulders at work so unfortunately I couldn't but definitely could see me wearing this outside of work!
