Do you have any pieces in your closet that are the real word equivalent of a superman cape? Those clothes that no matter how you’re feeling or what you’re facing that day when you put them on they make you stand a little taller and silently whisper to yourself, “I got this.” Me too but I’m swapping the red cape for a fit n flare navy dress and mint heels.
I’m a firm believer that what you wear affects your confidence and presentation. Even if I’m conducting a conference call I always feel more prepared in a put together outfit and heels than relaxed in a t-shirt and jeans. This wool navy dress from Susana Monaco has become one of my go-to dresses for days where I’m in the office and need to seriously rock it.
The fit n flare cut with laser cut detailing at the hem could be a little too contemporary for conservative client meetings but fits in nicely for the everyday. I picked up a pair of Diane von Furstenberg soft mint green pumps on a whim and now I wear them with almost everything. The combination of a classic fit n flare silhouette in a neutral color balances out the modern lazer detailing at the hem; the pointed mint pumps adding a bit of contrast to the palette.
note – The day I photographed this post I bent down to grab some snacks from the snack closet at the office, managed to catch my heel on the hem and ripped the dress on my way up…… snack karma?
