Now that it’s Tuesday, we’re solidly back on the workweek grind, and what better way to kick things off than with a wear-to-work post!
Before we dig into things, let’s recap the weekend since we didn’t get to catch up about our plans yesterday.
My weekend got started on Thursday, when my coworkers and I did an impromptu happy hour at our go-to hotel bar followed up with a late-night dinner al fresco. I love those spontaneous nights—don’t they always seem to be the best? Friday, I took advantage of the sun finally returning after a 15-day rainy streak with a rooftop happy hour with a great friend and then caught up on Scandal.
Things didn’t slow down the rest of the weekend—I went to the Winery at Bull Run* with M, my sorority little, and her new husband! Of course, in true DC fashion, the skies opened up after about an hour, but it was still a great day. I capped out the weekend with a company picnic at the Nats game, and am now looking for a weekend from my weekend. Who’s with me?!
(*Yes, I went last weekend, too! I just love that place.)
I have been living in this shift dress from J Crew Factory as of late. The exact dress is sold out, but I’ll keep an eye on whether or not it comes back and be sure to let y’all know if it does! I love Factory’s dresses because they are high quality, but most don’t require dry cleaning. Plus, with all the sales they run, it’s really easy to snag a wear-to-work option for $45-50. I do find their dresses run a little large, so if you’re between sizes, definitely opt for the smaller size.
Because my office is on the casual side of business casual, I’ve been wearing these Dolce Vita Lindsey Wedges non-stop. If you’re office is more formal, a pair of pumps traded out for sandals would make this into an easy desk-to-drinks ensemble.
