Fit and (Sun) Flare

I've always had a thing for fit and flare dresses -- especially when they're gingham. I think the fit compliments my body best. I love a fuller skirt and it doesn't hurt that they are perfect to wear to work.

Since I work a normal 9-5 job everyday, my wardrobe needs to be able to easily transition for the work week. There is just no point to buy items I can't wear during the day! So I always look for items that have a good day-to-drinks feel. You need something that is versatile and fun.

I feel like the idea of work clothing has gotten more fun and cool with our generation. We like to wear work appropriate clothes that are cute, fun and comfortable! This dress checks them all off.

It says online that it runs large, but I ordered my normal size 6 (after reading the reviews) and it fits like a glove! It has zero stretch to it so be careful and mindful of that when you're ordering! It's like a taffeta material -- also great for summer :)

Shopping for work appropriate clothing can be a hassle (there is SO much to chose from, none of it's cute, it's overpriced, etc.) but I've really been loving ModCloths work section. They basically just combined all their work appropriate clothes and accessories into one page and made it so easy to shop. Plus ModCloth has a variety of styles, sizes and prices. It's honestly perfect for any working girl like myself!

I snagged this dress above, this wrap dress and this gingham top (now only $14) in my last order and I've already worn these items to work. I like this work section so much because I know it'll be totally different than what anyone else is wearing and it'll be super cute!

PS - if you want to see more work-related looks let me know down below!
