Twofer Tuesday: Little White Dress

Since it’s been a while, I thought I’d do a Twofer Tuesday! For a long time, I didn’t have enough outfits on reserve to spare two in one post, but I’m doing pretty well in catching up.

Y’all know I’ve been trying to give new life to my dresses, and mixing and matching is my favorite thing ever. I take very great pride in my skills, as evidenced in these two takes on a standard (off)white summer dress.

In look one, I took a classic chambray blouse, tied it at the waist (because that’s back in now, btw), and added my favorite boho earrings. Since I was going to work and not a music festival, I put on some pumps, but over all, the feel is very casual chic.

So, I made my mom sew it up, and it will probably be worn until it’s threadbare. Because it’s PERFECT!!! Add in some pink accessories, because you know I like looking like an Easter egg, and I have a new favorite look.

Sweaters in Summer

I’ve been into this whole “not-washing-your-hair-too-often”, thing. They say it’s better for your hair (not sure why, but “they” say it, which is good enough for me), and I think it probably helps my color last a little longer. Also, hashtag lazy.

But, now and then I stretch it a little too long… even the headband isn’t helping hide my poor decisions today. Oh well.

I can’t tell you what prompted this outfit inspiration, except to say that the dress isn’t work appropriate without a sweater (too much shoulder), so I went trolling my closet for something that wouldn’t look frumpy, and I kinda love the long-cardigan-over-a-dress look. I don’t think I’ve ever tried it before, but this one is a winner!
