Black Shift Dress


When I say that I survived the week, I really mean I. SURVIVED. THE. WEEK!  It has been such a fun busy week attending the Off the Record event, the CMA awards, a Tom Ford beauty launch event all the while taking care of business as Wifey/Mommy and keeping a tight schedule at work!

Now don't get me wrong...I have enjoyed every moment of this busy week and I am most certainly not complaining, but I will say, thank God that it is almost the weekend.

But who am I kidding...weekends have become just as busy as the workweek.  Our son, Reins, has his first basketball practice at 8am on Saturday morning (guess there is no sleeping until 8:30 on Saturday, which only happens in a blue moon anyway), we will then attend a Fall party at a friend's house, and sometime this weekend we hope to take our kiddos to see "The Peanuts Movie".

Before we know it, history repeats itself, and yet another Monday morning comes which means we will all be yearning to be back in weekend mode!

Speaking of Monday mornings and the workweek, this black color block shift dress from Maggy London is such a perfect piece to wear to the office.  It is comfortable, professional, and chic...put some hosiery on and you have a polished look for the office.  And these sleek retro Zvelle heels add visual interest to this classic style.

 I've styled this look for the working woman on the go but you can also wear this dress for so many other, brunch, wedding/baby shower, etc.  Throw a leather jacket on and some booties for a date night out too!

Every woman should have a chic shift dress in their closet...this dress is a classic piece that you will have for years to come.

p.s how gorgeous is this ring from Alta Chic USA?!  

Hope you all have a wonderful Friday!  As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
