What to Wear to Work: Boyfriend Style Blazer Thrown Over Sheath Dress





Today I managed to bill two hours from home before I could even get into the office! Emails were flying around like crazy and it was all I could do to get dressed. So, I threw together a look that would be polished and professional, but would let me get out the door as quickly as possible! I know I wear these J. Crew Emmaleigh dresses a TON, but they are SO CONVENIENT when I need to get dressed in a hurry. Here I've thrown a boyfriend-style blazer with cuffed sleeves over the dress, popped on my red pumps and added red drop earrings just to put some color near my face. I've kept everything else simple because today is a day for working hard and pushing through!!

Readers, what is your go-to outfit for a busy day at work?

Dress: J. Crew
Jacket: Target, similar here for US or here for UK
Pumps: L.K. Bennett, similar here for US or here for UK

  1. I definitely agree with you that the easiest thing to put on in the morning is a dress. This is my go to when I am pinched for time or just can't manage to decide on a combination of other pieces. Sometime the option that has less moving parts is the right way to go.

    1. I absolutely agree - less parts is always better when you are running out the door!

  2. I agree, a dress is often not only the easiest choice in the morning but in my opinion also one of the comfiest. It always Looks professional and put together! Also I prefer a dress and jacket combination over a pantsuit anytime since a dress is also the more feminine choice.

    1. Definitely! Having a dress on is just a nice change from the male uniform of pants + jacket.
