What I Wore: j.crew Stripes

I get accused of dressing up a lot-- my co workers, students, my dad, it doesn't matter apparently I "dress up" a lot. For the record, and I am going on record here, I really honestly believe that a dress is the easiest thing/ most comfortable thing I can wear. 
No matter how "dressed up" it makes me look. 
DRESSES FOR LIFE. 
Oh you think I am just making SAYING that I love dresses? 
The other day I counted 40 dresses in my closet-- FORTY, and I can legitimately say that I have worn the heck out of them all. When I saw this little striped cotton dress at j. crew factory I knew it needed to be number 41. Easy, fun and versatile, OH SO VERSATILE!

I LOVE dresses. And by that I mean I love not having to wear pants. I love this dress as well, it is adorable and super versatile!

I love this post...it drives me crazy when people make comments about someone being too dressed up. The truth is that they're just slacking ;p (ps no u in forty)

I neeeed this dress!! I would wear a dress everyday if I could, I can't because, I obviously don't have enough. I think I've counted around 25... haha glad someone has me beat, and now I wont feel guilty for buying more! :D

I love this so much, Meg! That dress is awesome and I'm obsessed with your necklace!

So when you are back home and not working in your classroom, what you are saying is that we can go shopping together so you can help me dress up more? Our principal lets us wear jeans 3 days a week which is not good for my "professionalism". You set the date and we can drag Kaitlyn along.

That dress is gorgeous and you look amazing in it! I also agree that dresses are the easiest thing in the world to wear. I definitely should own more dresses!

Umm I love this dress and this post! There is NO better way to beat the heat, be comfy, and look pulled together than a dress!

Lindsay @ Trial By Sapphire said...

Amen, girl. Dresses for the win. It's the easiest, most comfortable "put together" look ever.

Also, if you're in the search of barns, rolling hills, and lush fields, I know just the place for you to visit. ;) Just throwin' that out there!

I always "dress up" too, and dresses are always my go-to! Super cute ;)

Darby Hawley said...

Phil says this about me all the time. I feel like dresses are "dressing down" because they're so comfortable!
