Work Outfit: Mustard Yellow Shift Dress with Blue Peeptoe Wedges

Mustard Yellow Shift Dress, Blue Peeptoe Wedges, and an Apple Necklace

A couple years ago I probably wouldn't have picked up a shift dress like this, but there are a lot of more-fitted ones around now that they've come back into style! I think the older I get, the more styles I enjoy (which can be a problem when you like clothes because then the wardrobe just keeps getting larger.) This yellow dress should be a super versatile year-round piece though, so I couldn't resist it. Mustard yellow pairs with so many different colors too. This time I went with a pair of blue wedges to contrast.

I actually wore this outfit during headshots day at work. They brought in makeup people and everything. They did my makeup very natural-looking. I tend to like either a little more on the eyes or on the lips, but my skin looked great!

It's been a little cool here in Georgia for this time of the year. How would you style this dress for fall? You think a collared shirt would layer well underneath it? I might have to try!

I apologize for being a little absent from the blogiverse but the majority of this past week has been spent with family because my grandma died. So I was up in Illinois last weekend and catching up with work the rest of this week. I'm ready for a day off because the past little while has sucked. At least I was able to make it up north to be with my family last weekend. I don't have a lot of time to sit around and mope though. I'm distracted by my new crazy puppy, Riker, and work and that's probably a good thing. 

Other than that, things are fine and I'm looking forward to fall festivities. What kinds of fall things are you most looking forward to? I'm excited for tights weather even though Riker will probably jump on me and tear up my favorite pairs. And soup and roasted vegetables. And all pumpkin-flavored things. Plus my birthday is next month.

Have a happy Friday and happy weekend!

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother! Death is always hard, even if it is someone who has lived a long and fulfilling life. That's a beautiful dress and the perfect work outfit!

Aw Jamie, I am so so sorry for your loss. I wish I could give you a big hug right now! I'm very glad you took the time off to spend time with your family. <3

Wow, how gorgeous are these colours together (and with your hair colour also). I adore mustard yellow, wish I had more of it.

So sorry to read of your grandma's passing. Imagining your crazy puppy made me smile.
You look great in your knit mustard yellow Forever 21 shift dress. It contrasts nicely with your hair and eyes. I think it would look great layered over a top having a Peter Pan collar or turtleneck in the same pretty blue colour as your xappeal shoes when the weather gets cooler. Roasted vegetables and pumpkin flavoured things sound yummy.
