No Monday blues over here because I am loving my work outfit from London Times! Recently I did a survey on Instagram to see if y’all were looking for casual or dressy outfit inspiration. I had several messages asking for work outfits. I haven’t shared workwear inspiration in a while, so I wanted to share some for spring. When it comes to work, I am usually less inspired because it’s harder for me to find things I love. When I saw this Marna dress from London Times, I knew it needed to be added to my work wardrobe.
I love that this dress is not only comfortable, but also stylish. Right now, since we’re still in the transitional phase of spring, I threw a cardigan over mine to stay warm. My work office is more on the casual side, but if you’re in a more professional one, you could add a blazer. This dress is easy to style since it doesn’t need much. The knot tie in the front makes it really flattering. The dress was slightly big in the waist, so I just tie it tighter and it’s perfect.
5 Tips To Make Your Monday Better:
- Start With A Devotional: I shared one of my favorite new devotionals on Instagram over the weekend here.
- Come Up With a To-do List and Weekly Goals: I am very list oriented and this helps me stay accountable for want I need to accomplish.
- Slowly Enjoy Your Coffee: It can be tempting to wake up last minute on a Monday and rush out the door. I notice my mood is a lot better when I ease into my Monday.
- Organize the Night Before: I like to set out my clothes for the next day and get my breakfast/lunch ready. Ideally, I like to do this on Sunday for the whole week if I have time.
- Have Something to Look Forward to: This could be coffee at Starbucks, plans to watch a good show after work, your favorite dinner at home, or a workout class, etc. I like to have something to look forward to on Monday night to get my through the day.

Such a cute outfit! Love your tips too. I always try to lay my stuff out the night before.
Thank you so much, Jennifer! It really does make a difference. I’m not a morning person, so any prep I can do is necessary.

You’re so welcome. I hope they help. I 100% agree, I always dread Mondays.
Love this outfit and love these tips! I didn’t start my Monday very relaxed this morning and I can already notice a huge difference in mood. Hoping to slow down a little when we leave for vacation!

Thank you so much! Ohhhh no sounds like last Monday for me. I wokeup early today and got a lot done then went to work and stayed a little late. I got sooo much done, so hopefully this week won’t be too crazy for me. I still have sooo much to do for packing and getting ready.
Courtney that dress is beautiful on you! I’m all about organizing the night before!!!
You are sooo sweet! Thank you so much. Organizing the night before makes all of the difference. I am not a morning person, so anything I can do the night before is necessary.
These are such great tips, Courtney! And what a perfect work wear outfit for spring. That dress is so beautiful!
Thank you so much, Lindsey! I love this dress because it’s soo pretty and soo comfortable.
Hi Courtney, I can see why you have no Monday blues !! This is one of my all time faves for dresses you have modelled. It is just gorgeous , the cut , the length , and the pretty floral print with the navy base color. The knot tie is a nice feature and its good you could use it to make the dress fit just right. The cardigan compliments it nicely along with your over the shoulder bag. I see it has a detachable strap to make it a handbag. A devotional is a great idea. I need to work better at lists myself, glad it keeps you on track! I have my morning coffee responding to blog posts , like I am doing right now! I also set my clothes out the night before, would love to be able to do it for the week also. Having an activity or fun time is a great way to get you through the work day on Monday ! Thanks for sharing Dear, Happy Friday , Terri xo.
Aw that is so sweet of you, Terri. This dress is so comfy and flattering. I loved the length and print. The knot really does, I love that you can loosen it or tie it tighter.I hope you’ve had a nice week. Xo- Courtney
Whenever I visit the office, you are always dressed so beautifully! I love your style.
Oh my goodness you’re so sweet, Anna! This made my day. <3
