Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Last week I almost wore this look to an event hosted by the Czech Tourism board at Bohemian National Hall. The Czech cultural center is an absolutely gorgeous space on the Upper East Side with herringbone floors, beautiful large windows and a giant event space. I found out we'd be trying Czech food and wine at the event so at the last minute I changed to a shift dress, also by Club Monaco (you can see a photo of the event space and what I actually wore on my instagram here).
It ended up being a better choice, since we had a delicious feast of Czech comfort food – everything from pork and chicken schnitzel to some kind of cured meat on toast and a beef stew plus the best apple strudel with whipped cream for dessert. I once watched a Anthony Bourdain No Reservations episode shot an episode in Prague where he bemoaned the lack of vegetables. Ha, it's kind of true but I can't complain! We also tried some really delicious white wines from Czech's Moldova region including a dry Riesling that I really liked.
I ended up wearing this dress the next day to work. Club Monaco is my go-to for work appropriate dresses that transition well to events – they're nice without being overly dressy and they tend to be well tailored and conservative enough for work with a blazer on top. To keep everything casual, I wore these man-loafers that I bought from Vince ages ago. These are all old favorites in my closet but I've linked to similar styles below!
