This is a Fashionista Event Opportunity, and is hosted byStill Blonde after all these YEARS and Modly Chic.
As a mom on the go, I am constantly looking for outfits that can be used from desk to dinner. I want to be able to take a meeting, run to the park for some play time, and look sexy when the baby sitter (grandma or my sister) arrives so I can go to dinner with my husband. I realize that it is a lot to ask of an outfit, but this Monroe & Main get up was able to handle the operation with grace.
I started my look with this Monroe and Main Marilyn Peplum Dress and Red Pumps from the holiday catalog. This is the base of the Desk to Dinner look.
For the desk look, I am wearing an animal print scarf and the padlock handbag in black. The Marilyn Peplum Dress is slightly low cut so the scarf is perfect for a conservative working environment. You could easily go to a meeting or even visit the in-laws in this look.
The dinner look has the same dress and pump base with a studded clutch that comes with a strap just in case. It is the perfect size clutch for real women as it actually has room for everything you might need at dinner. I fit a small makeup bag, a mini hair brush, my wallet, my huge cell phone, keys, and there was still space! At one point, I even stuffed the scarf into it.
This red look is so versatile that I even took Christmas Photos wearing this outfit. You can see the entire photo session here.
Monroe and Main is so supportive of April Golightly and other bloggers that they gave us a Monroe and Main Holiday Accessories Prize Bundle valued $104 to give away to my readers.
You can get awesome tip on dressing your best from desk to dinner and beyond on the Monroe and Main blog.
