There are certain dresses and clothing that just make you feel grown-up and ready to take on the world. That's exactly what this Taylor Dress makes me feel, all grown up-- not just playing dress up. This is one of those dresses that works for every woman and age. It's business casual chic, has the appropriate length for work without looking to matronly and is still fun. It's hard sometimes being 20something working in the "business world" since you don't always want to dress "corporate" but you want your look to be youthful and chic. I love that with a dress like this you can play around with different accessories like a bold statement maker like the Ann Taylor necklace or something more subtle like the BomBom earrings. Maybe a woman in her 40s wouldn't pair it up with the Marc by Marc Jacob wedges but go for something more classic like a pump or a strap sandal...or maybe she would. Either way it's a fun dress to accessorize and will be a staple in my closet. Maybe even an interview dress.

Do you have any dresses that make you feel grown-up?

  24. Haha for me it's less dresses and more suits or jackets that give me that "grown-up" feel. Looove the dress, and your hair looks stunning! Love the colour :)
