Not many photos today, but an unexpected, unplanned theme has emerged.
Are you following my friend JoAnn at Sidewalk Chalk? She’s at the last 1/3 of her dress project, where she’s styling and wearing one of her 45 dresses each day until she wears all of them. 45 seemed like a lot to me, and then I counted and realized I have about 35, and I have no plans of trying to stop buying them. Anyway, I’ve been in a dress mood all week, so I’ve been dressing in solidarity with JoAnn.
One of the things she mentioned that draws her to dresses is that a single clothing item can be an entire outfit. And while I have loved learning to layer, I think my true style is actually pretty simple and classic. These outfits don’t necessarily excite me, or take much effort, but I still felt put together and pretty. Plus with all the warm temperatures it feels pretty nice to just throw on a dress and feel the sunshine on my arms.
I wore this to a dance concert at TCU. The picture is kind of lame and doesn’t show the dress of that well, but it’s just a simple jersey tank dress. I wore my purple heels and purple purse that I snagged from my closet at home. I wanted some kind of neck attire and I thought this tiger print scarf did the trick.
ps- I don’t know why the ends of my hair are turning chestnut while the top half of my hair is the normal chocolate brown? I must get the question “Did you dye your hair?” about once every two months, and the answer is almost always no…

Logically, I know this dress makes my waist look shorter, but I don’t care, I love it. I love navy, I love the pleats (that you can’t see here, sorry!), the cap sleeves, the neckline, the fact that I can just wear it and feel a little Audrey Hepburn, and the POCKETS! Sorry for not showing those off…
Flats: thrifted, Gap
