playing dress-up.

Can I be honest? I'm not a dress wearer. Rocking a dress requires an intense commitment to leg-shaving and choosing perfect accessories and shoes which I will never possess. Also, dresses plain-ol' look funny on my body...I look like a porcupine in a suit jacket. So unnatural and uncomfortable. For this reason, I like simple combinations: jeans + flip flops + cardigan. Cannot go wrong there.

But, I found this breezy linen cutie last Saturday and couldn't resist trying it on. Granted, the largest size left in the store was two sizes smaller than what I normally wear, but rub a rabbit's foot and wish on a lucky penny...

...it fit! (I would like to take this moment to thank the friendly stretchy empire waistband.) And, I only looked slightly uncomfortable and awkward, which I think could fade with time.

Perhaps I'm growing up. :) Hope your extended weekend was fabulous!

  6. while I haven't mastered the girlish commitment to leg shaving and toe polishing, I adore a great dress. and the one you chose is beautiful! bonus points for it fitting! (isn't that the best when you slip into a size you thought was too small? I think so.)

    p.s. I just stumbled across your blog (via miss jane) and it is so cute!
