I have always been drawn to classic, polished pieces with a feminine flair and thus you will find more than a few shirt dresses in my wardrobe. An obvious choice for a working girl in warm weather, the shirt dress delivers a fuss-free, pulled-together ensemble. Bonus for my fellow heavy sleepers — they are some of my speediest outfit options and a thick leather belt hides a multitude of wrinkles. I am also a fan of this linen blend that can handle a New York City heat wave on my way into the office.

These sandals were my prize from the winter Shopbop sale and have been tucked away since, waiting to see the light of day. While the heel is a little higher than I anticipated, they still make for a great go-to sandal.

I first saw this “tied” leather belt on Carly and rushed to the Loft site to buy it. I used to take one of my husband’s leather belts to knot around flowy dresses but between suffering from the knot pushing into my stomach all day and having to coordinate outfits with Alex in the morning a new belt for my wardrobe seemed like the clear choice. I haven’t gotten a chance to wear it much yet but I have a feeling it will show up in a few posts this summer.

I’m always looking for your tips on easy, commute-proof outfits so if you have any tips I’d love to hear them in the comments below!
