Carelessness in dressing is moral suicide. ~Honoré de Balzac

What I Recently Wore to Work:
{PS- Sorry for the camera phone shots}

Purse: Betsey Johnson
Belt: Vintage from my Mom's teen years
Necklace: Nordstrom Rack
Dress: Present from my Mom years ago- best dress in the entire world.
Tights: Simply Vera

I don't know what I would do without the opportunity to dress up for the corporate world. Conservative looks at work honestly balance out my weekend outfits which more often than always include short hemlines and high heels- but from Monday to Friday I love to dress in my very own, professional way. I love to go out and have fun...but I also love to earn my own paycheck- and the appropriate clothes for both show you know how to play the game.

I hope your Thursday isn't as long as my dress!

you look so cute!! love the dress and belt! i've been dressing up for work for 9 years now....i think i'd be lost if i got to/had to wear jeans every day.

p.s. glad you stopped by my blog today :) hope all is wonderful for you girly!

love your outfit, very well put together. sometimes i envy those who work for corporate only because they can work "office clothes" all the time and get dolled up. i work at a school, so for the most part, i need to be able to get moving pretty easily. but jeans are awesome, but i still try to dress up once in a while at work.

Gah! I love your work clothes (well, all your clothes). I seriously want to be your coworker. It's all happening in my mind...we work together, we look fabulous together, we step out at lunch to grab food, we turn heads...it would be beautiful!

I LOVE that you're a working woman and that you make your own money. We have so much in common :)
