I am so excited for this prompt from the ladies over at the Blended Blog today. I adore wearing dresses, mainly because I feel like a good dress can make a statement all on it's own and there is minimal work involved. I also live in skirts and dresses during the spring/summer as much as I can.
Today I am going to feature two dresses that I have been wearing to work and are prefect for drinks, date night, a baptism, wedding, etc. Both of these dresses have been staples in my closet for the past two summers and the best part is they were FREE!!!! Yes you read that right, FREE. My wonderful sister loves to shop and generally after one season she passes pieces from her closet down to me, who eagerly awaits like it's Christmas morning. Just last week I sent her a text to see what she had for me for my summer wardrobe and I can't wait for my grandma, who is out in BC visiting her, to bring it to me next Monday. I am a lucky,and spoiled, girl.
Look #1 is pleats, pleats, pleats!!! This dress is so lightweight and flowy. It is extremely versatile and I wear it to work, both in the classroom and for meetings, for lunch/dinner dates, and any events that we have throughout the spring/summer season.
Look #2 I wear this work often in the spring and also love it paired up with brown boots & my mustard cardigan in the fall. Recently I purchased these lace-up flats from the Bay, and they are on sale for $39.99 right now. They are extremely comfortable and will be a staple in my wardrobe for our trip to London/Paris at the beginning of July.
WISH LIST DRESS: chambray, off the shoulder dress from Chicwish (below) and a new Maxi dress that I am hoping I will find through some of the other Link Ups via the Blended Blog.
Also linking up with Threads for Thomas, weekend addition. Great looks by Rachel herself and many others.
