I realized, when I had said that I struggle to find florals that I like, that I actually had an old floral dress with a gorgeous pattern. This little number is actually about 3 yeas old (whooaa) and I bought it to wear to my last Sigma Kappa formal in college. It’s definitely not supposed to be a work-dress in any way at all, but I thought I would play with its purpose by adding a blazer and some preppy flats. I left work in a hurry and went to a Blog Better Boston event on branding, where I was fortunate enough to meet some great bloggers (of all types!) and learn some good lessons. It was nice to see this look transition from work to play- that’s always a bonus in outfits!

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Me di cuenta después de decirles que nunca encuentro estampados florales que me gustan que tenía un vestido floral lindísimo. Este vestido lo compré hace tres años para mi último baile de Sigma Kappa. Sin duda, es un vestido para una fiesta, pero tenía ganas de cambiar su propósito. Por eso lo combiné con un blazer y zapatos sin tacones, para llevarlo al trabajo. Salí del trabajo rápidamente para ir a un event del grupo Blog Better Boston, en donde aprendí mucho sobre mi marca personal y conocí a otras blogueras. Me gustan mucho los looks que transforman desde una actividad a otra.. como esto. ¡Es una ventaja, sin duda! 

¡Gracias por la visita y que estén bien!

      Agreed! I typically toss items and regret it later, but this dress was too pretty to toss! So glad I kept it :)
