During the summer I’m more social and like to grab dinner or drinks with friends or coworkers (during the winter I hibernate). So, having outfits that are versatile and can be worn at the office during the day and then transition seamlessly to social events after work is important! It’s not always that easy because sometimes work clothes are just boring. That’s why I’m obsessed with this new color block dress that I found on Amazon….and the best part is it is only $22! Can’t really beat the price! I love the two different patterns on the dress and the zipper on the bottom. The zipper jazzes the dress up a bit. It’s perfect for any occasion, including work, date night, happy hour or a girl’s night!
I’m curvy for a petite girl and sometimes I can’t fit my top or bottom in dress sizes. The color block dress is mostly cotton but has some stretch in it so really fits all body types. It also comes in a small, medium and large, not actual numeric sizes. Layering is really important at the office since sometimes the temperature is super cold or it’s really hot… I never understand the decisions that property managers at office buildings make. I’ve worn this dress at work with a black blazer and ballet flats. When I went to happy hour with coworkers in Atlanta I wore the dress without the blazer.
I haven’t worn this dress on a date night, but my husband really liked the dress when I came home from happy hour with my coworkers. The company Zuri Zuri by Flora has a bunch of other really cute dresses on Amazon and are really affordable. I was surprised about how great the quality is for a $22 dress. The dress is a thick material, not thin at all. I’m definitely going to shop at their online store more since everything is really affordable and the quality was great. Plus, we have Amazon prime which is also dangerous.
Also, I’m in love with my new purse I got while we were in Florence on our honeymoon. We were referred to Massimo, the owner of the leather store by my husband’s cousin. His cousin had studied abroad and she had bought a bunch of leather goods from Massimo. My husband and I both got custom leather jackets and I cannot wait to wear mine in the Fall! We also purchased a few presents for our family and I got this beautiful black purse! If you are planning on visiting Florence anytime soon you must visit Massimo and tell him Lauren and Jeremy recommended him!
