Several of you got on my case about how last week’s post on work dresses was on the pricey side. I thank those of you who sought to defend my choices, and reminded the peeved parties that I am not their personal shopper, cause I’m not. I include on this blog items I love, and as it turns out, my taste has always skewed pricey. The reason I’m giving myself a re-do here is that usually when I show expensive items, I balance them out with more affordable ones, and in that particular post I didn’t do the greatest job of that. So here are some reasonable options, starting with this pretty floral number.
I’m not crazy about the ribbon belt here, so I’d sub it out for something dark, because I think the dress is really cute.
Super-simple but very sophisticated.
This dark floral looks so perfect for days when your only priority is to feel comfortable.
The draping here is quite convenient for campuflaging stomach junk.
I like the slouchiness of this blouson option.
I like when something girly, like a floral print is executed on a nice clean shape, like here.
Another simple but sophisticated shape. I’d throw on a stack of bracelets to add a little interest.
the balloon sleeves here are really chic.
A classic wrap dress in a nice, deep plum hue.
And finally, for the precious remaining summer Fridays we have left: a fun beachy print.
