Style File: maxi dress and lug bag

I believe dresses are the easiest pieces of clothing to wear. A fabulous non-wrinkling maxi dress even better. You throw it on and add an accessory or two and you're on your way *cues music from Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood* (if you have a toddler this will make sense).

I tend to shy away from maxi dresses because they shorten me but some days I just don't care. Leaving the house during a time crunch without looking like Hattie McHausfrau leaves no time for a internal debate on the length of my legs.

Interesting fact: In order to get this very moldable piece in my bag, I rolled it into a tight ball and stuffed it inside fake Tod. I was not playing!

I'm wearing another piece from the recent thrift haul. The Lug bag. I love it. I can fit so much junk in here! My standard mom bag items include a Coach wallet, keys, cell, and a sippy cup then I stuff it full of receipts, spare change and 10,000 lip balms that I can never find. Let's see how much this bag can really lug!

Maxi Dress and Mini Messenger

I topped off the look with some warm layers already in my closet. A corduroy blazer bought when they were super cool and trendy. I don't throw away blazers. I just wait for them to come back in style. Sometimes they still fit. 

Also wearing a white cardigan that I've been meaning to donate. It doesn't fit me well...and what do you do when you're wearing something ill fitting? Belt it, of course! I adore this snakeskin belt from the Savers thrift haul.

My final piece of flare is the lace infinity scarf I dyed and made myself. Thanks again for the yummy fabric, Ayana!

Who among you feel like you've gained a gamillion pounds over the holidays?
