Shaken, Not Stirred: Adelson Shift

Recent life events have caused my head to fill with thoughts concerning a more professional dress code. Unfortunately, you can't wear head-to-toe Lilly at some jobs. Interviewing at a job is also key to a first impression...but you might not be able to get away with the Blossom dress in the print "First Impression!" These are just the facts of life and the business world. However, I firmly believe that there are several solid options for Lilly in the work place...this summer I will definitely be exploring that some more AND blogging about it! Todays "Shaken, Not Stirred" focuses on dressing Lilly up for work...because let's face it, we need to earn money so we can buy more Lilly!!!!!!

The navy Adleson jaquard dress with gold lace is a classic look. It's usually worn rather plainly, but we decided to pair a tan blazer with the dress, classic pearl earrings and a bright leather clutch. We kept this look refined, and conservative. Definitely appropriate for the workplace! For our look, the model is wearing strappy metallic heels, but nude pumps would also look great if you have to wear close-toed shoes.

This outfit can transition easily from workplace to after-hours cocktails with coworkers, if you loose the blazer! Who says you have to wear the same old boring pantsuit everyday to work? Not Lilly and not us! Try "shifting" your work wardrobe around with the Adelson!


  1. Thank you so much for this post. I am a law student now and soon I'll be a lawyer but I'd like to keep living colorfully. (Instead of wearing boring suits day after day after day.) Thank you for the ideas!

  2. Our thoughts exactly, Elyse!! I'm so glad you agree and enjoyed the post! :) XOXO
