Do any of you use a standing desk at work? This is going to sound super dorky – I got a VariDesk a few years ago and I’ll pretty much tell anyone who will listen how completely life-changing it is. I used to have terrible neck pain and equally bad posture from sitting in front of a computer all day, but having the flexibility to stand a few hours a day makes all the difference in the world! So when it comes to work shoes, I find myself gravitating to flats more and more often now that I spend more time standing than sitting. I thought pairing these pearl slides with this contrast stripe shirt dress would be a fun way to do an office-appropriate spin on the athleisure trend. Also of note is my new Cluse watch that I recently picked up via the Nordstrom sale. I just discovered this brand and love the chic, yet inexpensive styles!
Oh and before I forget, I’ll be doing a live Facebook chat with Current Boutique this Thursday at 7:30 PM Eastern. We’ll be talking about red, white, and blue looks for July 4th and taking questions from the audience – hope you’ll join us!

Love how the white piping of the dress brings out the white of the pearls! I should get a standing desk for myself so I stop working from the couch, but I have nowhere to put it in our living room….the struggle!
Could you install a wall shelf in the kitchen, to be used drinking coffee standing up, seating kids at for a snack, and as a standing desk?
That’s actually kind of genius Jen! Sounds like a pinterest-worthy hack!
I’ve been wanting a standing desk!! I need these pearl shoes in my life. So good!

We are getting stand up desks at work and I am super excited. I am going to have to rethink my footwear tho. Love this look, your dress is so pretty and the white trim gives it a sporty vibe. Obsessed with your pearl slides!
you look so chic! super cute look!
I have a Varidesk at work too. Love standing a few hours a day, but do find I need to wear flats, so I change shoes a lot during the day.
Me too. I keep a cheap pair of ballet flats in my desk for days that I wear heels. Glad I’m not the only one that loves the VariDesk!
I’ve been seeing more and more of Cluse and really like the sleek style.
And your dress is outstanding !
Super chic in all black, you can’t go wrong! I love these shoes too!

Another chic look. I love it! And I’ve heard some great things about standing desks. I really want to look into one when we move.
Looks like a very comfy outfit to wear, which is not always the case with office fashion. Your colleagues may be mad at you for looking so fab and yet still managing to stick to the dress code, haha!

This dress is so classy but also so wearable.
A standing desk sounds wonderful…I’m always getting neck problems when I’m sitting for long hours! Also I’m loving this outfit…the white piping is such a beautiful detail!
