This is definitely my “back to work” look. After the entire summer of swimsuits and slip dresses, it’s finally time to put on something more elegant. I’m saying back to work, because July and August are mostly dead in the fashion world. Beginning of September marks the beginning of fashion month and the time fashion world awakes after 2 months of summer. In three days I’ll be in New York, and I’m definitely taking this little Pucci wonder with me, which I managed to haunt down in Monnier Freres. It’s very subtle and elegant, but feminine and a bit girly too. It’s my perfect bag, and I also have about 10 looks planned out with it, so make sure you follow my social media channels for full NYFW coverage. I highly recommend you to browse Monnier Freres and their other autumn propositions, from bags, to shoes and accessories. It’s one of my favorite online stores with designer pieces, where you can find not only universal brands like Philip Lim or Chloe, but also niece brands like Jerome Dreyfuss or Elizabeth and James.
Another big part of my “back to work” outfit is this midi dress. Or all midi dresses for that. I’m absolutely obsessed with this length, which will be a major trend this coming fall, as we’ve seen on many fashion shows in the February/March season of fashion weeks (click here to see the beautiful Saint Laurent collection which based around midi dresses). The only catch is, that a midi dress has to fit perfect to do wonders for the silhouette, it can’t be too short or too long. The perfect cutoff point is halfway between the knee and the ankle. I really like this flower print one for my “back to work” because it mixes the fall midi trend with a summery print making it the perfect transition outfit.
