Before I started dabbling in social media, I worked in the world of structured finance filled with cubicles, middles aged men in gray suits, and eggshell flat wall paint. My need for wardrobe self expression could not have been more suppressed. Fast forward to 2018, thanks to designers like Rebecca Taylor and Diane Von Furstenburg, women in the professional workspace have amazing options that leave them not only polished, but in style.

I’m one of those women that wakes up with a size 4 waist that gradually increases to a size 6/8 by 5pm; it’s a talent I’m very proud of {insert sarcasm here}. For this reason, I have always been a fan of dresses; not only are they just easier/quicker to put on in the morning versus a traditional pantsuit and blouse, most dresses do not require ironing. And let’s not forget, they allow for that gradual day tummy bloat most of us experience.

Add a simple black blazer or a white blouse underneath when it’s cool with some dark tights, and you’re put together in less than five minutes. Below are some of my favorites from this season with matching shoe options.
