Picnics at Work

I know my days are numbered for wearing dresses so I'm squeezing them all in while I can.
This print could be straight from the picnic I had with my girls last week but I'm owning it and loving it.  The print and the cut of the dress make it easy and comfortable but pairing it with the right accessories make it work wearable.  I'm always looking for pieces that transition with my day.  Everyone talks about transitional pieces but they are only referring to transitioning between seasons.  I love pieces that move form one season to another and work with me throughout my crazy days and not against me.

As a Realtor I work out in the field, in my office and from home so I don't like pieces that are uncomfortable and constricting because I don't have time to change several times a day.
I've made that mistake before where I put on a work outfit, change for school pickup and running errands, and then back to work outfit to show houses in the evening.  That's too much work so a look that transitions through my day is ideal.  This dress hits all the requirements of transitioning in both forms.  I've added a jean jacket to it for a cooler morning and it's so comfortable so I can play mom in it as well.  A quick change of the shoes makes it all possible.

This print makes me swoon- it's an oversized buffalo check.  It creates so much more interest than a solid color.  A print is a subtle way to add personality to your look.  To make it appropriate for work I've added a black suede pump, a large rhinestone necklace, and my traditional arm candy.  If you wanted to add a pop of color I would suggest doing that with a clutch.

My exact dress is currently unavailable but here is a similar look:

  1. IEC 60794-4
    Iec 60794-1-22:2017 defines test procedures for establishing uniform environmental performance requirements for:
    1. Fibre optic cables for telecommunications equipment and equipment using similar technologies, and
    2. Cable with both optical fiber and wire.
    Fiber optic cable
    Throughout the document, the term ""optical cable"" may also include optical fiber units, microtubule fiber units, etc. For reference guidance on all types of test methods and general requirements and definitions, see IEC 60794-1-2. The second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2012. This is a technical revision. The second edition includes the following major technical changes related to the previous edition:
    1. New test method, named F16-combined flow (drop)[E14 in IEC 60794-1-21];
    2. New test method F17- cable shrinkage test (fiber protrusion);
    3. New test method F18- mid-span temperature cycle test.
