Mom Wear to Work Wear: Little Black Dress with White Polka Dots.

It is the first Monday of July, you all. Hope you all had a great 4th of July Celebration and Fun Long Weekend! Two weeks ago I started a New Feature called "Mom Wear to Work Wear". So basically, every other Monday, I will bring you two Outfits featuring the same item of clothing first in a Mommy Outfit and then create a Work Outfit using at least one of the pieces as the first outfit. Sometimes the entire Outfit might be the same, I'll just use different accessories and shoes, just like I am doing today. I am doing this to show myself and you the versatility of my clothes by remixing them more. I have worn/will wear both Outfits shown on these posts. I thought these posts will be fitting for Mondays since that is when the work week starts. I figured why not add some more inspiration to the day! Hope you enjoy these posts. Since I just came off an entire week of Dresses, I figured I'd show you one more New Dress styled two ways. It is a Rayon-blend, Fit+Flare LBD with White Polka Dots. This dress itself is quite versatile and it can go to several occasions but this time I am just showing you two ways to style it.
Like I said this Dress is simple and very versatile because it is in a classic color, print and silhouette. But it has an exposed zipper on the back which I love. For the casual look I paired it with simple Red, Strappy Patent Leather Sandals, a Fuchsia Acrylic Stretchy Bracelet, a Gold Chain Necklace and some Oval-shaped Sunglasses. No bag since I was with Vivian and at those times the diaper bag and my wallet is plenty for me. For the work look I chose the go-with-everything Nude Patent Leather Pumps, the Classy Gold Hobo Leather Bag and a Statement Teal Bracelet. As you see both times, I went with few pieces of jewelry because when the dresss speaks for itself and especially when it is hot and humid out, that's all you need. Plus they were days when my hair was behaving so I will take full volume hair as my main accessory any day. Do you own a similar Polka Dotted Black Dress? Do you think this one can go from daily mom errands to a 9-5 work-place?
