Spring Office Style + $100 Giveaway



I am excited to team up with Tara at Mix & Match Fashion and Marion at Marionberry Style to show you ladies three office appropriate style inspirations for the warm summer months. 


The summer season hasn't officially started, but it is definitely warming up around here. It can be hard to figure what to wear to work during the heatwaves of June, July and August. Many times the temperatures are cold in offices, but scorching outside. I put together an office appropriate style that can easily take you into after hour drinks or a Friday night dinner after work.

Clare V Leopard Clutch
White Knee Length Dress
Clare V Leoprard Clutch
White Floral Dress
White and Leopard
Little White Dress from Chicwish
Chicwish Dress c/o // Target Bow Belt // Clare V Leopard Clutch c/o Piperlime // Go Jane Heels (option here and here) // XO Necklace (option here and here) // Lilac Bijoux Bow Bangle c/o (option here) // Lilac Bijoux Crown Ring c/o

I adore this dress and it's feminine floral detailing. It's also a blank canvas for styling ideas. You can slip on a blazer for a more structured look, add pops of color with accessories or keep things basic and neutral. The possibilities are endless with this little white dress from Chichwish. If you are interested in purchasing one for yourself, I would go up a size if you have a larger bust area. The dress snaps at the top and doesn't give much wiggle room. Other than that, it fits like a dream and runs true to size. 

I have great news. Today, Chichwish is giving one lucky reader the chance to win a $100 credit to shop their online boutique. If you are looking to add a few new pieces to your spring and summer office attire, check out some of my favorites below. They also have a fantastic mix of evening, special occassion and casual wear as well. Good luck and happy shopping!

A girl at my job was actually just written up for wearing those shoes (hers were Target brand) to work. I love the dress, but I don't think this would fly unless you work in a very liberal office. Most offices in my city do not allow open-toe shoes. My Mother-in-law's still requires stockings, as does my workplace. The shoes are sexy, which isn't super office appropriate. However, you live in Texas, and I know Texas is positively boiling when it's hot, so I think perhaps this is acceptable where you live? (Not acceptable as in it's in bad taste. It's a gorgeous ensemble. But this would get me written up if I wore it, which sucks since it's so pretty.)

This dress is so gorgeous! What has your experience been with Chicwish? I've seen bloggers wearing cute things from them, but am hesitant to order since they are based overseas. And some of the online reviews from customers aren't encouraging. Any feedback?

Lauren {Fizz and Frosting} said...

This dress is absolutely darling on you! I just love the hem and sleeves!

SMD @ lifeaccordingtosteph said...

Super cute! We do open toe shoes here, and I will definitely wear sleeveless or tank dresses so I don't die of heat exhaustion during the commute and slip a cardigan on if it's too cold in the office, which it ALWAYS is.

Leah Behr said...

That dress is gorgeous! Perfect for the office!

Helloooo gorgeous! That dress is beautiful and fits you like a glove! Love love love the black accents in the shoes & belt. I'm also surprised that an another person commented they are not allowed to wear open-toed shoes to work!?! Wow, I'd love to know where they live. Or maybe it's the industry? Interesting, and I'm glad that has never been my experience because I love open-toed shoes of all kinds!

These are all super cute looks that I could wear to work. A lot of the time people claim their looks are work appropriate but I work at a law office and what works in a more laid back or creative environment doesn't fly here.
