Happy Monday, y'all! I'm so excited to feature this dress today because it's so different than the dresses I normally wear. This year, I knew I would need more clothes that would be appropriate for interviews & fit along the lines of business professional, so I was on the hunt for something professional without looking boring. I would always rather opt for a dress, especially when it comes to business, because it's just one item of clothing to worry about instead of a blouse, pants, blazer etc. When I came across this dress, I knew it was a winner. The neutral beige color makes it perfect for any season (add tights and a jacket for winter) and the fit is appropriate without looking like it came from the back of your grandma's closet. I love the subtle asymmetrical hem, which adds just enough of a flair.

To keep it professional, I added a simple pair of black pumps and a classic black bag. I found this bag at TJ Maxx for $50 a few years ago and it's one of the best purchases I've ever made from them! The outside still looks great and there's practically no signs of wear anywhere. The style & size are perfect for business occasions: it fits anything you may need (planner, notebook, water bottle) but still looks so sleek and professional. 

To top it all off, I added this adorable marble face watch, also from ASOS, and basic bangles from Baublebar. A simple necklace would also add the perfect finishing touch!

Thanks so much for reading! Have a great week :)
