Midi length with polka dots...

I saw this dress on ASOS ages ago and loved the floaty sleeves so when it came into the sale, I snapped it up immediately as I knew it would be perfect for wearing for work. When it arrived it was longer than I expected (when will I realise that ASOS models have much longer legs than me?!) so I realised that heels would be needed to prevent dreaded 'stumpy leg syndrome'...

Dress: ASOS, tights: Primark, shoes: Office, belt:  New Look, necklace:Accessorize
 You can see my haircut slightly better in this photo, the slightly dazed look is due to the fact that these pictures were taken at 5.30 am before I started work, I'm not the best at waking up early in the morning! The necklace is made of gorgeous bronze coloured knots and is the perfect length to wear with a high neckline...


A more difficult length is balanced by my old favourites, my leopard print belt and red nails...


The best part of this outfit though was definitely the tights, they definitely add a sense of fun to any outfit!


What do you wear to work? How would you make a midi dress more wearable?

I love this dress, perfect for work and the colour is beautiful. I have a couple of midi-dresses for work and do find them a bit harder to style than my usual knee-length ones but heels definitely help! x

Ewww... 5am! You look so put together for first thing in the morning, if I have to get up before 7 then I always look like I've crawled through hedge backwards. I love this length on you, such a lovely jewel colour xo

I love midi dresses for work, great length for me if I'm shelving books of pulling leads out behind computers. I tent to wear knee length things or shorts with tights so I'm not worried about flashing ;) xx

Love this outfit! The tights are great but my favourite thing is the necklace. It's so unusual to get jewellery in that coppery shade and I think it's lovely!

I think I have grown to like midi lengths, although I do find I have to wear them with heels or I can't cope with the length and feel like a kid dressing up in mother's clothes.

I love the unexpected dotted tights, they really help to jazz the dress up!

I love this outfit. I have quite a few midi skirt that I dress up with my brogue style heels. I have similar tights to those as well. With the heels I don't think your dress is too long at all :) x

This is going to sound horribly superficial, but one of the things I'm looking forward to about having a 'proper' job is being able to wear proper clothes, because at the moment I am just wearing whatever clothes are floating about (read: jeans/leggings, Tee/lightweight jumper).

Loving your dress, you seem to carry the midi length really well, and the heels are definitely great.

one word: wow!

Elise said...

Ooh this dress is lovely, I also have a similar belt that I'm pretty obsessed with ;)

Vintage Reflection said...

I absolutely adore this outfit. The dress and the way you've accessorised it is just perfect.
I have a work uniform so can't wear pretty clothes like this :( x
