as with my last post, this is another remix, but based on dresses (the first to come)...
one problem i face working in an office environment is having office appropriate outfits, but still in the style that i like... i don't actually buy 'work clothes'... my clothes are all every day pieces.
being 5'6" with a 33" inseam, sometimes i'm borderline with the length. i find tights help with this problem, as they cover up the legs.
in my first look, i'm wearing the woodbine floral dress from ruche. i love it, but it's rather low cut and just borders my comfortable length. the first time i wore it, i wore a tank under, but i didn't find it complimented the dress at all. being that it's a floral multi-colour pattern, i decided to try pulling from those colours. it's shown with two different pussy-bow blouses under, which i think is a perfect way to dress up a more casual dress. having the sleeves peak out also add some interest to it. in the first outfit, because i chose a bolder colour for the blouse, i stuck with very neutral tights. in the second, i flipped it.
my second remix is of the dover shift dress, again from ruche. the first look is as it appeared in their lookbook, with a floral scarf and tights. while i love this look, it's a bit too spring/summer for the winter seasons for my liking. in the second photo, i kept the scarf to add a bit of pattern, but opted for khaki tights and a cream cardi, keeping the whole look very subtle. in the third, i wore it as a layering piece. with a sweater dress over, the lace detail of the dress just peaks out. for a bolder statement, i opted for teal tights.
