Real Women, Real Style... Shop 4.Collective

I love a structured sleeve, as readers of this blog well know, so of course I fell in love with this blue sheath dress from 4.Collective. I frequently tout this (fairly new) brand's designs, because they are so ideal for the working woman. 4.Collective even launched a real women, real style campaign that I think perfectly defines the brand's aesthetic.  It's important to me that I still feel feminine, fashionable and chic in the office, and 4.Collective dresses definitely provide me with some stylish choices.

Dress: 4.Collective Pipe Trim Cap-Sleeve Sheath Dress in Blue (no longer available, but check out this similar style)

Shoes: L.A.M.B. Pumps

As a part owner in my company, Local Marketing, Inc., it's important that I look professional every day. You never know if a client is going to make a sudden appearance in the office, or if I will be called into an important meeting. My days of wearing jeans to work are far behind me.

Celebrity Sighting!
Amy Robach and Ginger Zee from Good Morning America are fans; I've spotted them in a few 4.Collective dresses. My mom and I both love this morning show and Ginger's fashion sense in particular, maybe because we normally get to see her whole outfit. (She is in front of the weather map and not behind the anchor desk like Amy.)

April in Atlanta

If the bags under my eyes seem heavier than usual, it's because it's April in Atlanta, and that means allergy season. The pollen hasn't been too bad (yet), I think because of a brief cold spell we had in March, but my watery eyes and constant sneezing tell me the worst is yet to come.

I've been debating getting allergy shots again for years - I suffered through three years of them as a child - but my work schedule is so jam packed I don't really have time. I guess I will just see how the season goes...
