Work approp: Structured ruffles

I got this dress as a birthday gift from my aunt. Normally I would restrict its wear to weekends and going to the beach, but I thought it would be an interesting dress to pair with my structured work blazer. I really like the color and shape of the jacket with the soft flirty ruffles and colors of this dress. And it classifies as work appropriate. In our employee handbook, a skirt can be 6 inches above the knee. Can you believe that? That's quite short.
I was really excited when I saw this bridge. I thought it would be an awesome place to take outfit photos. Apparently there are many more joggers and cyclists in this park than I thought. One passed every minute, and stared. It was also extremely hot and humid. So if I look like I am in pain in these photos, it may very well be the case. I think you can actually see the humid haze in the top photo.

I love this look! I love how a great jacket can take casual clothes and transform them into work appropriate! I also really love those sandals!
