As a jeans & t-shirt kind of girl, working in a business casual office has been tough at times. During the summer months, dresses become my go-to look (During the winter months, I just don't even know what to do to!).

I'm always trying to find new ways to make a dress look fresh and modern though. So on days when I don't have too many meetings, I like to play with color and details.

This green Cynthia Rowley dress I found on sale on Poshmark is a bright statement in and of itself, but the racerback top means it's not office appropriate. 

You could throw on a standard black or white blazer, but I had some fun adding both colors with this striped version. The striped blazer is a graphic statement as well, but still adds a professional touch.

Most importantly, it could be taken off at the end of the day to transition to drinks or an evening out. Just add some fun jewelry -- like a statement necklace or a stack of bracelets -- and you're ready to go.

When I first started working in an office, I tried to wear heels most days, but my feet just weren't having it. Now, as more designers have embraced flats, I've been collecting different pairs to work into my office wardrobe.
  • TIP: Choose flats in a classic shape and instead look for interesting details, cool colors, or different patterns to keep them office appropriate, but stylish. I like these pairs here, here and here.
A black loafer is a classic shoe that is always office appropriate. But when you cover it in sparkling studs, it brings the shoe into the present day and helps you show off a bit of personality.

Majority of the pieces I'm wearing are past season items, but I found some really great similar options as well!
