So, for work, I needed to make myself look professional. For that just add on a jacket. And anyway, work won't allow sleeveless. I guess it was my only choice really. With this kind of dress, dont wear long jacket. Keep it short or otherwise it will hide the flow of the skirt. It is a swing dress after all.
So, this very same outfit can also be worn in the evening. Just remove the jacket! As simple as that.
Good start to the new year? I think so. A senior management person in my office actually complimented me for the first time today :) That sure made my day.
