Monday mornings come so quickly, but I always like to start mine off right. For me this means wearing something that makes me feel pretty and put together. The indigo blue dress shown here is what I actually wore at the beginning of the week with camel-colored heels and minimal jewelry. A simple outfit, but it definitely started my week off right!

The dress is conservative enough to wear to work, but fun enough to meet for drinks after. It has a flutter sleeve and a belted waist in a fabric that hugs in the right places. The length is right above the knee for me, but with a flare, which makes it more comfortable to sit in for the eight plus hours a day I spend at the computer. It is the vibrant color that makes the dress, as well as the design at the scoop of the neck. It's my slow breakaway from my affinity for black, because that was a color option for this dress too, but I went with blue!

For a dress like this, a nude shoe can help elongate the legs and make you look taller, even if you're only 5'3" like I am! If you are wanting to wear this dress outside of work, you can pair with a funky pair of ankle boots or your favorite t-straps, a neon color would be a fun contrast. But for work, nude or gray is the best choice to keep things looking professional.

Jewelry-wise I usually keep things simple with silver hoops or studs and an eye-catching ring, plus a few bangles. (You can never have enough jewelry, in my opinion.) Recently, I bought a watch much like the one in the photo (although, mine is an elegant rose gold) which again, adds to the overall look, making it more polished. The great thing about a dress like this is that you can wear any color of metallics as accessories and it will still look stunning. Add some dangly earrings and a sparkly clutch and you have a great date night outfit.

I keep my makeup neutral for work and add a bright lip color if I'm going out after. I haven't tried the trend yet, but I think coral would be a great lip color to coordinate with a dress like this. This whole look can be found at Target, which means it keeps the prices low; and for the budget savvy shopper, that is a dream come true.

The weekend is finally here, so we don't have to worry about Monday for a couple of days. But to make Monday something to look forward to rather than something to dread, add a little fancy in your outfit and set the pace for the rest of your week!
