My Favorite Staple...The Dress

If you browse through my pictures, it's evident that I am a lover of dresses. It's my go-to wearable, and my closet has been taken over by casual sundresses, maxis for running errands, and fun cocktail styles for parties and weddings.
There is just something so feminine about a dress and I can't help but feel a little more put together when I am sporting one of my favorites. In looking for some fun new ones to add to the spring and summer wardrobe, here are a few of my new purchases and some I may have on my to-order list!
Await Your Return Dress via Modcloth
Smooth Sailing Taupe Dress via Lulus
Cascade Ruffle Knit Dress via Loft
Running Lines Tank Dress via Tobi
Color Block Key-Hole Dress via Old Navy
Jodi Dress via Francesca's

P.S. if you're on the hunt for fashionable, yet affordable dresses, check out some of these websites...they are always offering discounts and their prices are really affordable, too!

  2. I am a dress hoarder. In fact, I think I have more dresses than bobby pins. Nothing makes me happier than a cute comfy dress.

    Once I tried to convince my husband that "Francesca's" was a gas station near my office when he questioned all of the $45 purchases on our bank statement one month.

  5. Love this post, and I couldn't agree more! I often feel the prettiest when I am wearing a dress (or at least dressed up).

    Not everyone thinks that though. Once I was in the store checking out, and the cashier asked me where I was going. I told her I was just running errands, and she was like "in a dress" like it was the weirdest thing! It was just a cotton sundress! Ha!

    I saw the blue dress from old navy and loved it on the hanger. When I tried it on, it just did not fit right. It was too short length wise, and to big everywhere else. Very unflattering. I would have loved to take it home. I found a maxi dress I love at Anne Taylor but it was $80 - no way could I spend that.

    Sorry this is such a long post! Hope you have a great day!

  14. I love dresses too! I was a DG at UT and I graduated in 2001. I was Kelly Mitchell's big sis and I seem to remember hearing that you might have fit in our "family tree" somehow. Anyway, I absolutely love your blog!
