"Dressed Up"

I remember in elementary school, if I decided to wear a skirt I had to mentally prepare myself for all the "Why are you so dressed up?" questions that inevitably were asked by my classmates. Now, in my professional life, I can look forward to wearing whatever I want, usually on the dressier side, without being questioned for my choices! When I wore this outfit last Friday, however, I got some "why are you so dressed up?" questions. Totally fine with me! I enjoy getting dressed for work, and I was happy on this particular Friday to lose the blazer and wear one of my favorite dresses, even though I had no court, no client meetings, and honestly wouldn't see anyone except the people in my office all day. Sometimes I just wanna get dressed up!

  1. Really like that dress layered with the shirt! :)

    If I dress too formally at work I'll get asked why I'm so dressed up. Any guy that walks in wearing a tie is asked multiple times if he has an interview to get a job elsewhere, haha. We are a very casual office though :)

  2. I love wearing shirts under jumpers like that, in fact, I'm doing so today! You look super chic. When I do it, I got the point that my office buddies have nicknamed my personal style " baby chic"
