Work it Mama!

It is nearly impossible to find cute, stylish, work appropriate dresses. I have found in the past that they are often too trendy or too revealing for an office environment. So, you can imagine my delight when I stumbled across Shabby Apple!!! The owners developed the line to fill the void in the dress market-that being a dress that is comfortable and gave you enough coverage so that you didn't need a tank or cardigan or jacket. I love the quote on their site, it's perfect: A return to what dresses were always meant to be — a one-piece outfit. No need to add tank tops, no cardigans, nothing (except accessories, of course!).

This site has the most darling dresses that are not only chic and updated, but the prices are not to be believed. Most of them are under $100. One thing I also love is that they have maternity and little girl dresses as well. It's a one stop shop! The ladies at Shabby Apple have been gracious enough to give Scout readers a discount of 15% off up until July 31st! Just enter yourstylescout15off when you check out. Here are some of my faves that will instantly give your work wardrobe a boost

This Slate Grey tuxedo dress is sophisticated and chic for enough for the office or for a night out. It fits generous, so make sure to size down. It's a beautiful bargain at $78

This $82 brown and white giraffe print with white top is probably my favorite on their line. It's a dress, but it gives the illusion of 2 pieces! It's also MACHINE WASHABLE!!! Hurray for that!

Everyone should have a great black dress that can go from work to evening. This dress is appropriately named "5 to 9" because it can do just that! Pair it with some matte hosiery and pumps for the office and then slip into some sexy slingbacks for a night out! This dress is also machine washable and an absolute steal at $66

This "Greta Garbo" dress is one of those pieces that you would wear in the spring or fall. I love the light grey color and black belt accent. They styled it with tights, but you could absolutely wear this with bare legs and a patent slingback in spring/summer.

For all my prego friends out there (which, there seems to be a lot these days) This is the perfect work dress for you this fall. It is chocolate brown with long sleeves and is made of ultra comfy jersey knit. Pair it with some cute tights and a scarf and you are all set!


  1. LOVE finding out about new shops! Fab picks!!

  2. I have loved Shabby Apple for some time now....I have two dresses from them that I can even wear while pregnant (ok, maybe just trimester one and two, but still...). LOVE this company :)
