If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that this week B and I headed to Vegas for a retail tradeshow for Bloom. While we are getting our buying on, I'll also be guest posting for myself this week. I can be in two places at once, see? (Spoiler alert: I'm wearing a blazer in 3 out of 4 of my outfits this week. Blazers are my crutch, don't judge me.)

I wore this outfit over the weekend. It was one of those things where I woke up and just wanted to get dressed up. Sometimes I just feel like being a business lady, which is good because that's my vocation. They say dress for the job you want, I say dress for the job you have. Even if it's on the weekend.

  4. Very chic and very professional! Love this look! So feminine and yet, down to business. And I'm all for crutches. You may have worn a blazer in 3 of the 4 outfits this week, but I have had a cadbury cream egg 3 out of the last 4 days. So I tip my hat to your better life choice crutch and judge not. hoping I can do the same for myself and this dang cream egg addiction. Tis the season, right?

  5. No judgment here! I LOVE blazers. They're my weakness. Your shoes are amazing! Are they comfy? You look great as a business lady. I'm so over the suits and skirt suits!

  8. Denim shirts are my crutch, which is definitely not as business lady-esque as a blazer. haha. Have fun on your Vegas "business" trip! ;)

  12. This is so cute and I can see it as being totally perfect for a tradeshow.  It looks wonderful on you.  Sadly, as with SO MANY BCBG dresses, it's too short for my office environment....I spend most of the day seated at a desk, and people are always coming into my office...this would not work so well for that.  I really wish designers would realize that they would probably better be able to target the working gals if they made the lengths of their skirts just a touch longer.  Love the look!

    Hy Kendi. I live in Asuncion Paraguay and I am your fan. I read you every day and thanks to you I can have a different view to get dressed.
    I agree with your statement: "I say dress for the job you have."
    I'm a lawyer so I have to dress formally, so in my weekend also I dress in the same way.

  68. Love the green (or is it blue) lace! Lace is supposed to be "in" for spring - and this is a fantabulous way to pull it off! I wish I could pull off the length though; I'd be scared to bend over to put books away :)

  85. You look awesome! I think it's a little too sexy for where I work but you're the boss so I guess it's within the dress code?

    I love this look, but the first thing I thought of when I saw the dress is that it is way too short for an office environment. Maybe with black tights on it, you could get away with it. Wish I could do it though.
