Is it colour backlash from Rainbow Week last week? Nope, just working my way through all my not-yet-worn clothes and I didn't feel like making a lot of effort.
- Dress - Talbots, thrifted; last seen here in July 2017 with new Fluevogs
- Shoes - Van Eli, thrifted; last worn here (6th outfit, way down at the bottom) in May for the start of Jeans Week
- Jacket (below) - Club Monaco; last seen here in June
I think of this as my Charlie Brown dress because the zigzag stripes remind me of his shirt. I haven't worn this dress in a full year, but it is packed away for 6 months, and it firmly falls into the "hot weather" dress category. I don't like a jacket or cardi layered over it, so I need to wait for warm weather.
It was a quiet day at work, but I'm still glad it's over.
here (join her link-up!). I don't have a phone/tablet/laptop (I know, shocker!) so it's pretty easy for me to step away.
Outerwear - I was all ready for the sun, but it didn't appear.

That's a lovely dress and I do the same with my lazy outfits - just throw on a dress! It's my way to feel more pulled together than I am! :)ReplyDelete
Hope you enjoy your long weekend, I look forward to your post weekend wrap-up!
I don't know why more women don't wear dresses, when they are so easy! Thanks, Mica! I'm not off until Friday, but I'm ready for it!Delete
Dresses are such an easy wear when you're just tired. Its one garment away from being totally dressed and if its a gorgeous dress like this one. Enjoy your time off !ReplyDelete
Oh, I so agree, Lorena! Thank you! Can't wait till Friday!Delete
I wonder if you could save the buckles from the sandals and attach them to another new pair of simple design?ReplyDelete
They're part of the shoe, Jan, not a separate piece. I am not going to hack these apart, but good thought!Delete
Elegant look! Dresses are brilliant for the hot weather we've currently been enjoying here in the UK. So easy to wear.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Gail! Send some of that hot weather this way, would you?Delete
I'm must be feeling lazy a lot of the time, as I'm usually wearing dresses, although I do try to vary and wear separates more often. The truth is that I'm addicted to dresses, and I've got so many of them ... Anyway, back to your dress which is looking absolutely fabulous on you. I love the zig-zag pattern. Now that you mention it, it does remind me of Charlie Brown's shirt. Who'd have thought he was such a style icon! Shame about the sandals, though. I bet you are counting the days to your long weekend! xxxReplyDelete
Hee hee, I hear ya - I love dresses, and really have a hard time weeding out some of my lesser ones so that I can buy more! Who knew Charlie Brown would be such an influence? Yes, bring on that long weekend!Delete
Hello! That dress is fan-tastic! Love how you styled it.ReplyDelete
