I have a traditional office job where business casual is required. I’m actually happy that this is the case because at my previous job, it was business professional (suits or at least blazers on most days). This is actually the ideal dress code for me because it allows me to play around with clothes that I can wear. Modest for work and a rebel on the weekends. However, it is because of my traditional office job that I have a lot of dresses. As a child, I HATED wearing dress, skirts anything that required showing my legs. As an adult, I can’t get enough of dresses. The dress is THE easiest item of clothing to throw on in the morning when you only have 5 minutes to spare. It’s also the easiest item to transition to from day to night without even trying too much. It’s no secret, I choose dresses over any item of clothing.
This is one of those outfits that took me 5 minutes to put together. I love burgundy and animal print together, especially anything leopard pint. I wanted to wear my hair down for this outfit but I wanted that extra “wow” factor so I accessorized with a wool hat. It was the perfect replacement to sunglasses. Weird Fact: My eyes are SUPER sensitive to sunlight so that is why 99% of my outfit posts feature me wearing sunnies. It was a bit cold this day so I wore this beautiful black leather coat and carried on with my black brooks brothers bag.
