This week at work, we are involved in hosting a national conference for our field. This means lots of presentations, networking, and attending events (and posting on the blog might be a little sparse this week).

This is my go to dress for such occasions. I feel confident, attractive, and professional-but-still-feminine whenever I put it on. I almost never think about what I'll wear on days where I have to be at something formal-ish for work, like a board meeting, because I know this is in my closet. 

The dress itself was a lucky find. It's a Zara dress, but I found it at Crossroads Trading Co, a California resale chain two summers ago. I want to say it was something like $18, and it has paid for itself over and over since then! I usually wear a belt with it, this skinny one is thrifted.

Inspired by a few other fashion bloggers, I thought I'd venture out of my house to take some photos, and it was definitely awkward! But as you can see, this dress looks great even when just walking the dog!

Do you have any go-to pieces for work events?
