Today’s work wear look is based around this Lela Rose Printed dress. I call this a “Private Practice” dress as it reminds me of the type of dresses the ladies would wear in the tv show Private Practice and for me, is the ultimate in grown-up dressing. I love the colour combination of this fabric and the capped sleeves balance well with the shorter length. I can imagine cinching it with a patent black belt or adding some great arm candy in the form of a bold cuff, but for this look I wanted the dress and its bright pattern to be the focus.
As the dress is quite summery, I felt that a sandal would work best and found just what I was looking for with these Rebecca Minkoff Patricia sandals. I’m really loving a thick heel at the moment and the ankle strap and detailing on these shoes are a gorgeous compliment to the dress. And continuing with the theme that a bag is the perfect finish to any outfit, I spent quite a bit of time hunting my favourite websites before finding this suede and leather tote from Saint Laurent. I like how different fabrics and textures can add depth to an overall look and the practicality of this bag is hard to beat while still being stylish and chic.
A simple but stunning midweek work wear look. The weekend is in sight.
