Part 2 of my work attire series, has arrived! 

Many of us our working ladies, or have been at one point.  I spend 40 hours a week at work, I think it only makes sense to share my work favorites.  The shirt dress is a major work staple to add to your wardrobe. Truthfully, this dress can be worn really at any semi-dressy occasion! This dress is so versatile and very appropriate to wear to work.  I seriously cringe when I see woman in corporate America that is wearing a mini dress that is like 4 inches above the knee.  Don't get me wrong I love a good mini dress for a night out, but the work place isn't one of them.  There are so many cute appropriate options, and a shirt dress has never failed me.  What I wear to work is an extension of the employee I am in the work place.  Whether I like it or not, it is true.  So dressing the part is always necessary. Along with following your company dress code. 

Lately I have been wearing the Midi length shirt dresses. Really...any midi length has me sold.  I love this length, and it looks great on any height.  I am a shorty (and proud),  and this length is great for my sis and shape.  Another benefit to midi length is my office is always freezing,  this gives me some extra fabric to keep me warm. 

Just like any blouse sizing is important. If you get size to small you will end up having the stretched out look at the chest area, or tight around your arms. With shirt dresses if you get too large it can look somewhat like a tent, just size appropriately. 

Another major work staple is the classic black pump.  I wear these anytime I decide to put on heels.  I have to walk to different work sites frequently at my job, for me comfort it pivotal. I am going to be honest, I had some black pumps that I bought for like $30 bucks, and my thought was I would just wear these to work and why pay a ton.  Well, that back fired on me. First, they were like 5 inches (which is is an epic fail at work). Second, my feet hurt pretty much the moment I left out for work.  Moral of the story, is invest in your black work pumps. Your feet will thank you later!

I styled my look with my game changing tote! It fits my laptop, makeup, wallet, lunch, and gazillion other items! I found this gem at Dagne Dover!  It's great quality, very affordable for the size, and I use it all the time. I have the 15 inch.  My next work series will give a closer look at this bag, to show in depth how it has change my work/mom life! Lol!  Stay tuned for part 3!

Happy Styling!
