A couple years ago, I had a closet full of jeans and serious work clothes. Fun clothes were a challenge for me. Since I am admittedly vain and really don’t like to show up in the wrong thing, and since I have made a personal commitment to having more fun in my life, my serious wardrobe was becoming a serious problem.
Until I discovered the joy of…
fun classic dresses!
It’s not that I wasn’t aware. I started trying them on while shopping, and ordering them online, and now I have quite a few in my closet. I wear them all the time! And for a fun night out, you can’t beat ‘em. Dresses also travel really well. A recent favorite, chosen for a first date kinda night was this striped knit from Anthropologie. Body conscious without being aggressive, it was a great choice.
This dress has all the forgiveness attributes – (1) cut on the bias, (2) strong cotton knit, and (3) lined! The colors allow pairing with almost any pair of sandals already in the closet. Also this dress could go up — fancier shoes and jewelry, or down – casually paired with a jean jacket.
By the way, this perfectly cropped jean jacket will be getting its own blog post – it’s an absolute essential and favorite of mine!
