I love this business casual outfit from Banana Republic! I always try to mimic Banana outfits because I think they're so polished and put together. That's what I did for today's outfit...
My purple dress is from Loft - its a cotton-spandex blend that's super comfortable to wear all day at work (only problem is that it wrinkles easily!). In the inspiration photo above, they pulled a pink sweater for the dress. It's almost 100 degrees in Baltimore today so I skipped the sweater, but ideally you would be able to match any color to this muted purple dress. I added a silver bracelet and a statement necklace to match the outfit above. To complete the look and to resemble her beige platform sandals, I chose a pair of nude platform heels.
(Note: This outfit can be mixed and matched, and adjusted throughout every season of the year. A simple knee-length dress, sweater, and heels works for almost any occasion, and is always work appropriate. In the fall and winter, add a pair of opaque tights and a cute trench to make the outfit more weather-friendly.)
