Feeling myself - Sensible Stylista

Feeling myself

Sharing another Ryan Chua shoot with y'all today on Sensible Stylista.   We took these pics together in Santa Monica, CA.  The view was absolutely spectacular!  I miss SoCal so much - hopefully I'll be back soon.  I feel like there's still so much to see.  ANYWHO, I'm sharin' this post today because I feel like this ensemble is totes work-friendly.  Yes, the print's loud, but the dress itself is completely office-appropriate.  Shifts are solid choices for work because their silhouettes and lengths are modest.  This particular version is made of a thin fabric, but hell, it's freakin' hot as [insert expletive] outside so whatevs.  Make sure you bring a nude cardi or light blazer just in case your office blasts the AC.
For today's post, I styled my bold shift dress with hella loud accessories.  I went all out with colors and prints because I felt like it!  I mean, y'all know how much I love wearing animal print.  This one's extra BAMF because of the color scheme.  
I could've styled this dress with a simple black crossbody, but I chose to go with a lime green handbag instead.  This adorable version (courtesy of Darling) is, unfortunately, no longer available.  Make sure to browse their bag selection anyway though.  They sell a lot of cute stuff!  I especially love this Daisy Box Bag & Embellished clutch - very Kate Spade IMO.

  3. I love the colors and pattern of this dress (if it has mint and leopard, its a winner in my book!). My office totally does blast the AC, I have to wear a jacked when I come inside, but take it off when I go outside!
