What I Wore: Little Black Dress


I often get asked about work clothes, and what I tend to wear to the office…well, this outfit is a good example of my usual 9-5 uniform. While I wouldn’t describe myself as a girly-girl, I do tend to gravitate towards dresses…mostly because they are super easy to wear and require zero thought or preparation in the morning. I don’t know about you, but I really don’t have the capacity or desire to stand in front of my closet at 7am, trying to put together an outfit. So more often than not, I reach for one of my many office-appropriate frocks.

This one in particular is a favorite of mine, and a recent acquisition from H&M. The brand carries a great selection of smart black shifts all year round, and I always make sure to pick up the latest version. The fit is great, it’s lined, and for $39.95, it doesn’t really get much better.

So tell me, what is your 9-5 uniform? Share in the comments!

    You look great! I’m the same – I can’t be bothered to figure out what I’m wearing each morning. I basically have work dresses and a bunch of pencil skirts. I pair the skirts with tops I can wear on the weekends. I hardly have any pants b/c it’s hard for me to find them – but luckily my work is casual so I can wear jeans any day of the week if I wanted to!
