I'm a recent convert to dresses. I now own seven or eight, a huge increase for me. I love them all, especially on a busy morning when coordinating top + bottom + accessories is a lot of effort. And by studying my fellow bloggers, I have learned that a dress can actually be quite versatile. It can be a skirt, a skirt again (WhatIWore2Day), a tunic (Already Pretty), a blouse/tunic (Fashion for Nerds), a jumper (Thrifty Girl Vintage) a jumper again (Ephemera) -- and probably a hat, but I couldn't find any pics!
This wrap dress was a find at Goodwill, for $6. It's by Tommy Hilfiger, all cotton knit, in a print that I think can work year-round here in the hot zone. I could add a camisole in any number of colors for a bit more modesty.
It's still too hot for boots! But I don't care, I am wearing them, and loving it. Today it's just little-bitty boots -- booties, I guess. I picked them up during the same Goodwill trip as the dress. They are by Sofft, and they are incredibly comfortable (similar). They are a half-size too big, and I think it shows with bare legs -- they look a tad clunky here. But with some tights, or worn with straight leg jeans, these babies will be perfect.
The navy cotton jacket is my kind of cover-up -- a little structured, but not too corporate. It's by DKNY Jeans, and I bought it at my favorite consignment store, Cottage Rose. I really like it over this dress for the office. Just Visible enough! Now let's see what you're wearing, my beautiful fashionistas.
