A Modern Print for the Office

Sheath dress were signature items in my work wardrobe for several years.  I’ve been shifting away from that look, though, and started donating many of my basic sheath dresses to Rung boutique, a local resale shop that sells affordable work clothing in support of the Women’s Foundation of Greater St. Louis.

I’ve kept a basic black sheath for meetings and a few others with interesting details.  The sheath featured today was definitely a keeper because of its modern print.  The dress was a clearance buy from Ann Taylor back in 2011.

I’m linking with Mix and Match Fashion for the What I Wore to Work challenge.

    Such a lovely printed dress – really like the yellow cardi with it, and I think the leopard print shoes were a great choice 🙂

    Love how the yellow cardi bring out the yellow in the print. Just beautiful on you. I'm a big fan of the Michael Kors Hamilton purse so, of course, I love yours!
