Ladies, I've been trying to hard to make Fall happen here in Florida. I want to layer so badly! In an effort to pretend that I still live in New York (minus the ridiculously high rent), yesterday I pulled out my one and only shift dress, paired it with leggings and boots, and boom! Fake Fall! About the dress however, I have no business in this style. Especially at the weight I'm currently at, a shift dress does nothing for my figure. However, by wearing it with a blazer, I was able to add some structure to the look so that I didn't walk around looking like a tent. This dress is from Forever 21, but dare I say that I've had it for around 10 years or so? Crazy I know, but it's held up well and continues to be one of my favorite pieces in my closet. It's such an easy and inexpensive piece, yet the detailing makes it look more luxe than I actually paid for. Even in my corporate job, I still make an effort to look like myself and showcase my personality through my fashion choices. It's very important that I work in an environment that allows me to be me! I know people traditionally have rules about what's appropriate to wear in an office but that's not my problem. I'm still serving big kinky hair, nude lipstick is not my go-to and more often than not I'm dressed in bright colors. Sure I may be doing too much for some people. but again, not my problem. I am always dressed professionally, just with a little extra ummph! I see nothing wrong with that as long as I'm slaying just as hard with my actual work as I am with my wardrobe.
