I wake up this morning and realize, “it’s almost September!” My mind instantly races with all that needs to be accomplished in the next couple weeks: school books need to be bought, schedules need to be memorized, and let’s not forget the most important thing, that crucial first of day of school look. The right shoes to go with the perfect top and coordinated earrings, the pants I’ve been saving to wear for just such an occasion… And then the reality sets in: I’m not a student any longer. But I don’t let that stop me. Just because my school days may be behind me doesn’t mean I have to put my annual September shopping spree on hold. I grab my cup of Joe and start thinking about how my closet needs a bit of sprucing, specifically, my work dresses. Don’t get me wrong, I love wearing a great skirt to work or even my best pant suit, but finding that great dress I can wear to the monthly board meeting or perhaps that dinner with that account I’ve been trying to land for months just doesn’t jump out at me. I can’t seem to find the right amount of color without being over the top, or perhaps that perfect length that makes my legs look great while avoiding all the office gossip. But have no fear, these business casual dresses will leave very little to be desired when you’re deciding what to wear to work this September.
