Petite Work Attire: Pretty in Pink




Photos: Katie Derus | Cardigan: Express (similar here) | Dress: LOFT | Belt: Ann Taylor (similar here)| Tights: F21 | Sunglasses: Chloe (similar here) | Shoes: Nine West | Bag: Tory Burch | Hair Flower: DIY | Bracelets: F21, Boutique

The dress I'm wearing in these photos is one of my favorite things to wear for work--it looks like a conservative skirt and blouse, but it's actually one convenient piece. Goodbye, unseemly untucked blouse! I love having easy, go-to work pieces for the mornings when I can't seem to find two shoes that match (and not being a morning person at all, this happens all too often!).

My hair in these photos took only a few minutes to do--check out my sock bun tutorial for simple instructions on how to recreate it for yourself.

  3. Oh nice, it's one piece? I love this look, it's typically colour worn in spring/summer but it's so nice to see brightness against all that snow in the background :)

    1. Yup, the dress is one piece! I am pretending like it's spring already. (Note: it's actually quite lovely in Denver, but these photos were taken when I was up in the mountains!)

  6. These are such beautiful photos with the snow, and I adore the pretty ruffle details on the top of that dress. I love the idea of one-piece dresses so as to avoid the untucking that occurs throughout the day! I love your sock bun, and how you pulled it a bit loose this time at the top - I have a similar hair style in my current post as well! I think fashionable minds think alike :):)

  10. I think I tried on this dress over the summer but ultimately passed because I couldn't find many occasions to wear it. Loveee how you winterized it, especially with the pink blouse against the beautiful white background.

  12. I LOVE the sock bun!!! I have just discovered this myself and it has changed my life. Dramatic? A little bit. But for real, it is so great.

    Also, I love this outfit. And your style in general. The little flower is such a great addition!
