This is the perfect everyday work look for those who would like something a little more lively than just trousers and a button down shirt. Burgundy is just the right balance between colorful and conservative for a more professional setting. This dress is a great “investment” piece (minus the investment part). You can wear it casually on the weekends with flip flops or boots (depending on the season) or add a blazer and pumps to make it work appropriate. The dress comes with a thin brown belt but we swapped it for this black one for $8 to match the blazer and pumps. If you’re like our Queen bee Sarah (today’s model) and you pretty much KILL IT at what you do then this outfit is a good match!

What are you wearing to work this Tuesday?

  3. A friend and I were just discussing how a black blazer is an essential wardrobe piece. I can’t believe this one is under $15 – a steal and a must!

  5. Love the dress, great idea to look for more interesting classic colours (black is so overused), the burgundy is great, so is a dark forest green, navy blue, or charcoal.

  7. I need that black blazer! It is too sharp for only $15! Does anyone know if it fits true to size or does it run small? I’ve noticed most blazers tend to run on the small size.
