Outfit Post: ✾ Simply Bella ✾ 。◕‿◕。

I wear simple dresses like this at work during casual / dress-down days. Not totally dress down of course but has that lovely, trendy, and romantic style; perfect office wear! Working in a corporate setting requires compliance to dress codes. Of course, following the dress code doesn't mean you have to be boring and keep up with old styles. You can experiment and follow new trends, provided that the cuts and styles are still not -over-the-top; not revealing; not too loud nor flashy. Discreetly, office attired.

But officewear doesn't have to be too-formal, as I've been campaigning about hehe, especially as you reach the end of the week or so called dress-down days, right? You can wear casual and comfy outfit. Sporty attire is a no-no. You don't want to look like you're going to a gym while at work. Simple casual dresses like this one I wore would work! I'm glad to find good deals like this one from one of my partner shops - and I'm sure you'll love their pieces too.

I'm a fan of fashion but of course, I put limits too on what I wear. As much as I love some more trendy outfits and style, I can't be too-edgy at work. Otherwise, I'd look like I'm going to a party and not at work. Of course, there will always be that dilemma that ... well it's dress-down day anyway going towards the weekend so dress all you want. But then again, work ethics wise; don't wear something not appropriate. Sexy outfits and too loud colors can be probably reserved for other occasions.

Draggy, Lack-luster Pose! LOL!

This simple dress is perfect then to match the casual mood. The title of this post is the very first term I thought of, in calling this look. I dunno but there's something bellisima in this outfit / attire. The simple and casual look, the lacey edges of the dress, the stripes pattern, the color - everything! It's simply lovely! I feel so light and comfy with this out - as if all the troubles in the world are gone.

A little bend on the shoulders, boom!
The shop didn't disappoint me on this dress. I gotta give them a proper review soon after this outfit post. They deserve that feature, I guess! I'm enticed to get more items from them then. They have quality products - so far, based on the items I got from them. Plus, they're available at pretty low cost.

Flabby! Chubby back! LOL.
I look so thin in this photo above. I love it! LOL. The pose gives the dress that justice it deserves haha. Really did the stomach-out pose here without anyone even knowing haha! So that meant I was able to hide the chubby fats on the side of my waist hehe. If not for my back flabs ... this would have been perfect! Harhar~ Well, I still love this dress despite the lovely flabs haha. Makes me feel light and worry-free. These past few days have been really challenging. So a light mood really is what I need ...

Shy Look!
Notice that planner I'm holding? It's my 5th year using this bella planner! Perfect organizer for a corporate woman like me! (^_^) Check it out! You might like it too! They have the best pages plus, you get beauty and fashion coupons to use from old favorite shops and new partner shops alike! You can see here too how the lighting that day inside the building has captured the rays of the sun in all photos - making it look so bright and vibrant! In this photo, you can also see my red hair hehe ... not too red though.

Glad my phone cam captures this natural light look!
To add a little more fun in the look without overly doing it, I used cute connector rings and my baroque shades as added spice. Simply cute right? Wanted to achieve that lovely look! (^_^) Pairing it with low kitten heels even made this look more achievable. That simple "bella" look! A casual chic weekend dress down getaway look! The accessories help me express myself more in a subtle way, without the issues ... without the troubles.
