Spring and Summer Midi Dress

So it's a pretty bold statement to say this is my favorite dress to wear for just about any special event be it work related or personal, but it really is! I found this dress just before my first photo shoot for our website - I was looking for something that was crisp and timeless as well as figure flattering. This was the first time I was trying a midi-type dress, but I was into the style so I thought why not! After a little tailoring around the shoulders, the dress that I know I'll be wearing for years to come was ready! 
Ann Taylor Dress  // J. Crew Silver Heels (similar) // Louis Vuitton Makeup Case (use as a clutch!) // Apple Watch // J.Crew Bracelets
I think this color (called faded iris) and midi style is really pretty and feminine for weddings, still giving off a bit of that sexy vibes, but absolutely work appropriate. I coordinate a lot of corporate events and get tired of wearing a plain black dress, but this is gives the perfect amount of boss babe attitude without having to utter a word! Also please excuse my paleness - we've barely started to see the sun! 
Now that I know I love the midi dress silhouette, here are some other dresses I have my eye on! 

Do you  have one dress in your closet that works double duty for fun and work?!

  5. I love that color on you! And yes, perfect for both work and play! As a teacher, most of my clothes have to be school appropriate but I always make sure that I never look like a typical "teacher" and try to dress fashionably. To keep myself sane, I do have some clothes that are too short or revealing to wear to school so that I can still feel like I'm in my 20s and not an old school teacher! haha!

  15. Biana, you look fabulous in that! I've got to say, though, I can't pull off the midi dress! I've tried on multiple occasions, and each time I see a picture of myself I regret the decision! Something about the length of it...I guess I need my dresses to hit me just above the knee, or full length.

    Looks beautiful on you! Have you already done a post on your watch? Maybe I missed that.....

    Happy Wednesday!
