But, while I’m enjoying some respite, I’ve actually got a recent work look to share with you.

This floral dress isn’t something I would typically pick, but I just loved the color palette. It has a slight 60s vibe, and I thought it would be a great addition to my work wardrobe.

Lately, I keep steering towards evening fashion and other types of clothes that aren’t really appropriate for work, so I think this was a good choice.
The dress is a little bit shapeless on its own, but I would still wear it by itself.
Since it’s always cold in the office, a drapey navy sweater kept me cozy. It’s hard to see in the photos, but the flowers of the dress are outlined in navy. I think I could also get by with pairing the dress with black to add more layering options.
I’m glad I found another work option. I see this dress as one that can transition well into colder weather and will add some liveliness to winter weather. Versatility is becoming increasingly important to me, so I try to think of at least a few ways of wearing a piece before I invest.
How do you decide whether to purchase a new piece?
