March 5th, Dressed for Success

It’s Monday, which means I’m heading into the office today, which means I need to dress somewhat nice!

I’ve chosen this cotton red Michael Stars dress. It’s super comfy, I like the bright red color, the bell sleeves and faux wrap style.

My only issue is the length. I’m a little worried that it’s too long (since it hits me below the knee) but paired with my black boots I think it works. What do you think?

I do know that at least it’s better than the dress on the right.

I call this my ‘nun outfit’. The length is awful- hitting me right above the ankle. This is not flattering at all. It’s very matronly and old fashioned looking. I bought this over 12 years ago and it’s been sitting in my closet ever since. Now I know why!

I’m hooking up with Monday Mingle today. Be sure to check it out for other great ideas.

For you petite gals who want to look taller, here is another great example of how to dress in all one color.
