Today I’m bring you another wear to work look from my favorite place to find professional-chic staples, Nordstrom. When it comes to buying professional wear, I always look for pieces that are versatile enough to also wear after work, so when I spotted this blue lace shift dress, I knew it would be a perfect go-to take me from brand meetings to date night.
A couple of weeks ago, I shared this wear to work look featuring a pleated maxi skirt and top. It probably goes without saying, but I’m much more of a skirts and dresses kind of girl when it comes to workwear (unless it’s a casual Friday, jeans kind of day at the office). When it comes to shopping for office appropriate dresses, you want to find something that’s modest but still chic, so a shift dress like this or a classic A-line dress will always do the trick. You can shop more of my favorite wear to work dresses below.

Now let’s talk about this shift dress. One of the first things that drew me in was the gorgeous periwinkle blue color. I also loved the detail of the lace and the way it gives an illusion effect on the sleeves to add a little modern flair, while still keeping it conservative enough for the office. I was even more stunned about the quality of the lace when it came in the mail. The lace overlay is thick and high-quality, but the dress features a lightweight, soft material beneath so it’s still easy breezy enough to wear in the summer.
To style the dress, I started with this gorgeous (and oh so lightweight!) pink bib necklace by BaubleBar to create a pastel, feminine color combination. I continued the color combo by adding a carryall satchel by Kate Spade New York in the same light pink hue. There’s nothing as fierce a classic pair of pointed toe pumps, so I topped the look off with these studded t-strap pumps in the same rosy hue (similar here).
