STYLE: Business Casual & Cute

Sometimes you find an article of clothing that just has everything you’re looking for: flattering fit, perfect length, pretty print, wrinkle free and the cherry on top? POCKETS! 

That’s what I love about the Penelope dress (similar here) from Karina Dresses. I’ve written about the brand on a few occasions (see here, here and here) and with each one it just gets better. As a business traveler, I couldn’t ask for a more travel-friendly dress that is actually business appropriate as well as easily transitioned from the office to happy hour. 

On a recent business trip, I took two of my four Karina Dresses and they were the first items I wore during the trip. The fact that they are wrinkle free is EVERYTHING, especially when you need about 15 more minutes of shut eye in the morning. No need to iron these dresses EVER! 

A few of the #Freehive have commented to me that the dresses are overpriced and I have to agree that $108 is a bit pricey. However, the dresses are comfortable and versatile and easy to style in different ways. The Penelope dress, on sale for $68, can be worn alone or with a blazer or moto jacket, as I did here. Next time I may pair with a red cropped jacket and high heel sandals for a totally different look.

Here, I paired this floral printed frock with black tights and accessories, allowing the vibrant print to be the star. I will admit though that I had no idea the based color of the dress is actually navy blue until I got outside and the natural sunlight hit it. However, some of the florals have black in them so everything worked well together.
