Where: Sitting around the house fiddling with the new blog and grading papers, then off to downtown to stroll the streets and get coffee with husband.
Dress: INC via Macy’s
Beige open cardigan: Banana Republic (Summer 2008?)
Green tights: Spanx
Brown booties: H&M
Details: Sometimes I think this blog should be called “Me and My Dresses” because of my clear love affair with this wonderful genre of clothing. I know dresses are fussy to lots of girls and they avoid them. Plus tights can be itchy and you feel like you have to yank on them all day long. I guess I feel the opposite…and it’s been an evolution. I have always loved dresses, but haven’t always felt comfortable in them. I look for pieces that are interesting enough to hold my fancy, while being comfortable enough for me to wear anywhere. This dress was purchased when I was miserable and had gained weight during my grad program and job search last summer. I took the elastic out of the sleeves because it was bunchy under cardigans and now it’s one of the most comfortable things I own. And because of the stretchy cotton fabric it still fits 🙂
