My summer vacation has had a nice run and will soon be coming to an end. I work for a school district, so it’s back to school for me soon and I’m getting awful flashbacks of being a kid again (but really, will also going back to school to finish up my last semester of grad school, eep!). I want this year to be full of more creative outfits at work, but still be work appropriate and comfortable.
I thought that the perfect place to start would be with a blue dress. When black becomes basic, it is easy to fall back to it over and over, but blue is just as easy to wear. One of these dresses I wear often because of the straight shape and versatility, but the other is a little more extravagant for work, but I’m going to make an effort to wear it more often.
The H&m dress can be accessorized with any color or pattern belt to change it up. While the Banana Republic doesn’t really need more accessories since the ruffles are enough.
I thrifted both of these dresses, and that’s the great thing about thrift stores. I’m sure I could walk into any one and pick out a great blue dress right off the rack. (Especially Goodwill stores which carry a lot of Target deadstock, and Target has lots of work friendly dresses).
Do you have a go to blue dress? Whether it be for work or fun? I have my own fun blue dress that I wore just a few weeks ago.
