Disclosure: Thank you to Nordstrom and ShopStyle for sponsoring todays post.
Enjoyable Fact: Before the days of Living in Yellow, I worked at a cooperative credit union and definitely LOVED it. I prosper on interaction with others and after working from home for a number of years, physically going into the LIY workplace for conferences with the Team offers me a humiliating quantity of serotonin. While our gown code [, if thats what you want to call it] is pretty lax, Im a firm follower that how you dress shows how you feel. And on the days my clothing hit the borderline of business expert, I feel ready to handle the world. But I get it– when Fall rolls around, it can be easy to get stuck in a what-to-wear rut. Never fear! Today were here to share eight head to toe work-friendly tries to find Fall, with a little help from Nordstrom.

Dressed to Impress
Knot Sheath Dress [real to size]// Heels [true to size] Ladies, theres just something about a LRD [little red dress] that makes me feel so empowered and all set to get the job done.

A modest v-neck is hard to come by [the struggle is REAL, I received from my mom!], however this one has my approval. I also like the expert length and flattering wrap around the waist.
