It seems that I have a thing for vintage shirtdresses. I have one with horses and one with polka dots and now I have this one with an awesomely 70s print. It instantly upgrades my jeans outfit of the day. What initially attracted me to the dress was the bold colors but I also love the unique buttons and choice of green topstitching.
Dress with jeans is working for me. This will be how I wear my low rise jeans from now on. I've donated most of them because I can't deal with the stomach and butt spillage when I sit down. The dress covers and camouflages the spilling bits. Mom jeans are still my real friend though with magical ability to hold everything together.
The bag was brand new with tags from my Chicago thrift haul. I love quirky. The fact that this bag has a whole barbershop theme with storefront "window" inside and a vintage inspired straw exterior just spoke to me. I still plan to turn it into a camera bag by adding pads. For now, I'm just junking it up with receipts and other randoms. They're all hidden behind my giant black wallet. These bags retail over $100 so I got a pretty good deal!
Seychelles make the best comfortable and cute shoes. The heel height is manageable and the cushioned soles add an additional layer of of comfort. I normally wear these heels to add color to a monochromatic look. Today, they're just adding another area of interest to the look.
I've come out of my leggings all day every day phase with a renewed interest in dressing up. In a practical way. I love wearing dresses and heels but they don't necessarily fit into my early rising, errand running, blog writing, house cleaning, and meal cooking life. It's a good day when the dressy and the casual meet in the middle and work out well.
