All remixed except shoes
Dress: Target
Belt: Target
Shoes: Kohl's
Bangle: H&M
Earrings: Kohl's

Do y'all ever have days where you just don't want to get dressed? Like, you wake up and it's grey and steamy out and you just want to stay in your pajamas inside? That was me this morning. When that happens, I put on a dress. Because it's easy to put on dresses.

This dress is one of my go to pieces. It's professional enough for the office, and casual enough for a day of running errands. I had to do both today, so this dress was a go.

And it's got that safari vibe I like so much. I threw on the brown belt to make it a little interesting and a big, plastic bangle to make it a little more modern.

And because I'm trying to wear all those things that I hardly ever/never wear, I put on these leopard print wedges. I have two pairs of leopard print shoes, and they're both just a little too big, which hurts my heart because I love leopard. You can tell that these are big in the picture, but they stayed on, and I didn't clomp around in them.

Overall, not bad for a day when all I really wanted to do was stay home.


  1. I hate those days when you just don't want to get dressed!

    Especially when it's grey and humid. Humidity is the motivation eater.

    But you still pulled off a chic look -- it's a good thing dresses manage to be the simplest, and still look like you've put in tons of effort!

    Chic on the Cheap

  2. Ooh, leopard despite the style doldrums? I'm impressed :D

    I think I just realized how many dresses I own, too. Har har. We girls do have it easy...

  3. You look great! Gotta love a LBD that works for the office and errands!

    After I lost weight, I found that some of my shoes were too big (did you know that could happen? I didn't. I do now.) but I found some of the thicker heel guards at Target and they work PERFECTLY. They're made more to keep your shoes from slipping, but since they're a little thicker, they fill in that extra space just enough. Worth a shot! Those shoes are GREAT!

  4. Every Monday is a day when I do not wanna get outta bed! Cute shoes even if they are too big:)

  5. @ Melissa: ooh, heel guards! That's a really good idea. I'll have to get some before I put these shoes in the give away pile.

  6. yup, I have days like these too. today was one of them, actually. and dresses are also my go-to items when I wake up feeling like this :P


  7. oh, I forgot to tell you much I loved your shoes! you have such great taste in shoes, there's hardly any pair you wear that I don't feel like stealing them for myself :D

  8. Safari ROCKS! Those heels look like they are the perfect height!


  9. Oh, these shoes are pretty much perfect, except for being about a half size too big for me.

    And Fer, maybe someday you can steal my shoes. I can't take them all with me to Costa Rica. ;)

  10. Agreed. Dresses are so perfect for those days. I need to get more, hopefully thrifted!

  11. @ Melissa: ooh, heel guards! That's a really good idea. I'll have to get some before I put these shoes in the give away pile.


Talk to me.
