style + first day of work

dress | bag | sunglasses (similar)

Hey team. Happy Friday. It's a busy weekend here so I'll make this quick.

Thank the Lord for Nordstrom's speedy delivery because I would literally have no clothes to wear to work without it. This dress is from Nordstrom's Topshop collection, and it's so wonderful that I ordered it in two colors. 

I have a very wide waist, so I do what I can to make it look smaller, aka love the belt. The color of this dress looks extra good with a tan, but it's so pretty and feminine that I'm going to try to extend its use past summer. Also, given my inability to walk in heels, I opted for Schutz's mid heel, which actually worked quite nicely. 

At least I wore this outfit on my first day on Wednesday, instead of yesterday when it literally was monsooning. Light colors, suede shoes and water do not mix. 

Have a great weekend! My brother is visiting with his college friends for the weekend, and I'm seeing some sorority sisters in the city tomorrow. Everyone decided to come to the tri-state area the same weekend! No idea what I'm wearing to the city, it's supposed to be a million degrees out which I'm not looking forward to, but hey, it's summer.
