I have had pretty good luck shopping at Ann Taylor recently; this sturdy Floral Lace Flare Dress was a keeper, along with the recently shared Begonia Lace Flounce Dress (seen here) and Blossom Flare Dress (seen here).
And, until Sunday (04/24/16) night, all full-price styles are 40% off (no code needed) at Ann Taylor. New email subscribers can use code ANNWELCOME2 for $25 off full-price purchases of $75+. The Mila Leather Pump (worn here; I own this style in three colors) is a great work shoe and is only $51.80 with the new user code. I took the smaller of my two sizes, as I normally do in Ann Taylor styles, though those with wide feet may need to order their normal size (on account of the pointed toe).
Here are some full-price picks: Double Pocket Sweater Jacket, Kate Gingham Crop Pants,Fringed Tweed Pencil Skirt, Pineapple Lace Pencil Skirt, Belted Gingham Shell, High Waist Culottes, Geo Eyelet Pencil Skirt, Chevron Jacquard Pencil Skirt, Pineapple Lace Shell, Gingham Side Button Skirt, Kate Eyelet Everyday Ankle Pants, Stripe Pocket Sweater Jacket, and Polka Dot Pencil Skirt.
