Hola desse España, hello from Spain! It’s the last few days of our holiday and while I plan on sharing more welcome to the latest post in my Really Love My … series. It may come as a surprise to some that I am sharing a piece that is both long sleeve and a deep navy color but this is dark floral dress is one that I wear year round.
When I bought this dress nearly 10 years ago at Ann Taylor in New York City as part of my “professional” wardrobe I had no idea how many things would change. The biggest, and it makes me laugh now, is that besides the first year out of university I’ve never had a job where a business professional wardrobe is required. That said, have a nice go-to pieces in your closet – especially dresses – make mornings a lot easier. I feel it is always good to be on the dresser side of any room whether that is a cocktail party or a business meeting.
In the last decade this dress has been around the world but since it is more of a work piece I had far less photos of it then I thought. You can take a look at some of the ways I want it and I put captions as to where the photos were taken:
at a business lunch in Seattle
work from home selfies in London during COVID
Post-work theater evening in the West End
with my brother on Park Avenue in Manhattan
at the Google offices in Boston, Massachusetts
en route to a London business meeting
At an art gallery opening in Stratford
As you can see this dark floral dress pairs quite well with flats or heels for warmer weather or ankle boots and tights for those colder months.
What do you think of the dress?
