Dressing Romaine Salad in Advance?

So normally when we take salads to work for lunch, we bring separate little tupperwares for dressing so that we can add it at the last minute. This is usually a pain because our tupperware selection means either we take a bulky jar or a small tupperware that invariably leaks. Nevertheless, we make it work when we have to. Tomorrow, however, I made a salad with romaine lettuce, green beans, and cannellini beans. I was going to do just lemon and juice and olive oil as the dressing. I'm thinking that since romaine is a sturdier lettuce and there is nothing too delicate in the salad, maybe I can get away with dressing it in the morning before we leave? It would sit in the dressing for just 4 or so hours in that case. Do you think that it will still turn out soggy, or would this be okay?

ETA: Also looking for recommendations for small, leak-proof containers in which to transport salad dressing to work :)
