Most of us are hopefully back in the groove of things, getting back to the work flow and our normal schedules.

I wanted to post about a look that would work for a big office meeting or even if you just felt more formal that day. This black sheath dress is my absolute go to for that I-mean-business feeling. It’s form fitting, cut in all the right places and very much office appropriate. Believe it or not, I actually picked this up at TjMaxx. The one in Georgetown has a really great selection of designer pieces at a truly affordable price. I’ve linked to a couple similar ones, here and here.

The rest of the outfit is very simple, with clean lines. I stuck to mostly black, with sheer tights (which are my absolutely musts for winter), and a classic pair of Coach pumps (link). But of course, D.C tends to be too monochromatic a times, so I had to break it up with just a pop of pink on the lapel of my blazer. I also love the shininess of it, and the three-quarter sleeves. The blazer adds that touch of personality, which keeps the look from being too boring. I’ve linked to a similar here that I’m absolutely obsessed with. I highly encourage an investment in a couple interesting blazers, especially if you work at an office or attend business meetings often. They’re so easy to throw on, and help create that instant effortlessly put together vibe.
