Espresso

Colorblock dress c/o Lovely Wholesale / Black and cream bag from Tacicco

What's the point of buying shorts and cute skirts anymore when I can only wear them 2 days out of the week? With a steady work schedule now, I've been trying to only buy dresses that are work-appropriate. This dress is my new favourite work dress, even though it's a bit too tight at the bust. Which is highly unusual since my dresses are usually drooping down at the chest because of my lack of...area there.

In other news, I was out with the boyfriend the other night and I had a rather interesting interaction with the waitress. She only looked at me to take my order. Every other time, whether it was greeting us, taking our drink order, checking to see how to meal is, and handing us the bill, she never addressed me. So was this some old school thing where she only assured that the guy would get a good experience because he's the one that would be paying? Or is my face seriously that mean and unwelcoming that even a waitress, who is paid to be pleasant, doesn't want to break the ice? Either way, I'm kind of amused by the situation, but it doesn't look good for me.

  16. Great dress. The color-block makes it more interesting than if it were just black and it can totally go from work to weekend with just a few changes in accessories. :-)

  17. I love your style! The neutral colorblocking of your dress is gorgeous. I've been trying to buy more versatile dresses as well. I miss wearing shorts all day! This piece is perfect for both in and out of work though!

    Best,

  20. BEAUTIFUL dress!! I really like how lovely and lady-like the silhouette is. Very wearable for work as well - I can see why it's your new favorite work dress.
    And i'm sorry to hear about the waitress - she may have just been having an off day. Still, she should have made an effort to make eye contact with you and be generally pleasant :/

  24. I love neutral outfits, yours is an A plus in my book! I´d say that the waitress was rude, hahaha!

  25. That is definitely very rude for the waitress not to address you or make you feel welcomed. But then again we all are humans and maybe she was having a bad day ( stressed or had a lot on her mind!) You never know!
    Anyways, I really love this outfit you are wearing- the dress looks like a perfect cup of coffee ( color wise of course!). Love it!

  28. I get that all the time. How hot is your guy? It may just be (like with my Husband) that he was smoking hot and she barely noticed you for his hotness!
