Sorry I've been MIA this week! Between a major freelance deadline on Monday and two huge deadlines for work next Tuesday, I've been mired in work—so much so that in the evenings I come home exhausted and in need of a "brain break," which basically amounts to sipping kiddie-sized Orange Crush Slurpees while watching reruns of The Office. I've been pretty quiet on the blog, social media, and email for that reason.
In the midst of all this craziness, easy-to-wear summer dresses have been a godsend; one piece with a few well-chosen accessories and I'm out the door. This chambray shirtdress has been a workhorse in my office wardrobe since I bought it in May or June, but I haven't had a chance to photograph it until now. All the casual appeal of denim with the tailored polish of a shirtdress, and, what's more, a simple change of accessories can completely change the look. Here I swapped the matching fabric belt out for cognac-leather-and-gold one.
