Spring Dresses for the Office

19 Mar

I’m loving this weather! This weekend was in the 50s and 60s and today it’s in the 70s, this is crazy.

This weekend Matt and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary. It was nice and low key, which was amazing. We went to the movies to see 21 Jump Street, which I thought was hilarious.

Matt liked it too, he described it as trippy. There are parts of it that were a little weird, but it’s probably one of the funniest movies I’ve seen in a while. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill have great comedic chemistry and they seem like they are actually best friends. You get the impression that they had a great time filming this movie together.

Saturday night we roasted a chicken for our anniversary dinner. It was my first time throwing a whole chicken in the oven, but it turned out great. Matt made some delicious garlic mashed potatoes.

When Matt left yesterday I went for a nice long run. The weather was perfect. I was able to wear shorts and a tank top and it wasn’t too hot out. I ran for about 7.5 miles and it felt really good.

All this warm weather got me thinking about all of the spring wardrobe possibilities.

Outfit #1

The first outfit would be great for for a formal office setting where a jacket is required. Without the jacket this is also a great office look. I love this shift dress and the blocks of color on the sides and the slight peplum at the hips. Playing off the blue a great bib necklace and earrings add some added interest to this outfit.

Outfit #2

This outfit would be great for a business casual work environment. I’m a fan of dresses that combine a top and bottom in a way that doesn’t look cheesy. The belt does a great job of cinching the waistline and providing that hourglass shape. The colors are fun and bright, which makes this great for spring. This is paired with some simple gold jewelry and black kitten heels and handbag.

Outfit #3

This outfit would be good for a casual Friday. The print is fun and the bursts of color in the flats and handbag play off the great pattern on the dress. A light cardigan is great for a cold office, or the dress can be worn alone. The earrings are subtle and also play off the pinks and peaches in the dress.

What piece of your wardrobe are you excited to bring back into rotation with the warmer weather?

I have a pair of white trousers that I wear to work in the Spring and Summer. They will be coming out of hibernation very soon.
