Okay, folks. I did it. I actually dressed myself the other night.
I wasn't wearing jeans or a v-neck or a t-shirt. I was dressed up. Colt took me on a lovely date and I wanted to try something new. I pulled out a long gray dress that I hadn't worn since before Duke was born. (Breastfeeding doesn't exactly lend itself to long dresses.) A date was the perfect occasion for this little number though. Once I put this outfit on, I immediately took a picture of it and sent it to Reese for her blessing. And she approved! Here it is:
Dress: Thrift Store
Long Cardigan: Gap
Belt: Thrift Store
Sandals: Old Navy
I am not a fashionista and I am not a style blogger. I will not pretend to be either of those things. (Yeah, sorry, you're still stuck with mom stuff, weird stories about my life, and baby spit up.) However, I am trying to put myself together more lately. So I have a new game. There are items of clothing in my closet (like the above dress) that I think have potential. But I have no idea how to wear them or what to wear them with.
So here's what I propose: I will post pictures of these clothing items. Whether or not I wear it is up to you. Either you nicely say it's completely hopeless and I should throw it out immediately ... or you offer style advice and tell me how it should be worn by giving examples. That's fun, right? Well, it's fun for me. I need you, my fancy fashion-forward friends!
