I absolutely love wearing dresses for summer, and have recently been looking for new dresses I can wear both professionally and casually. My workplace is pretty casual as it is, but I still feel the need to look put-together. I recently came across this pretty burgundy dress that totally fits the bill, and had to share it with you!
This dress surprised me for a number of reasons. For one, it’s in a burgundy paisley print, and I usually dislike paisley. It’s actually one of my least favorite prints! However, when I first tried this dress on, I was sold. Combined with the cute fit and pretty cutouts, the paisley actually works! This dress also surprised me for its combination of fun details and casual professionalism. I love the fun cutouts at the neckline of this dress, but also feel that this dress is appropriate for work!
Here, I’ve styled it for an outfit that’s perfect to take you from the office to drinks with friends! The long bell sleeves on this dress provide a mega interest point, but also won’t get in the way of typing if you have an office job (don’t worry, I’ve tested this out). Pretty blank ankle strap wedge sandals are feminine and demure, and also comfy enough for a day at the office. The fun nature of the shoes will translate perfectly to night!
For an extra pretty touch, I’ve added matching burgundy lipstick as well as soft curls. This plays up the glam factor for night, but is also subtle enough for a day at work.
Comment your thoughts on this dress or my day-to-night outfit, beauties!
