So this weekend I bought a dress. It doesn’t seem like a big deal, but I have been in the midst of a quarter-life clothing identity crisis for awhile now. My body and life has changed since college and my wardrobe has paid the price. Since I didn’t really know how to dress my body anymore and I’ve been fighting with my style, I haven’t bought a full priced dress since we purchased my wedding dress.
But this weekend while waiting for a table at our favorite local restaurant, Flip Side, we wandered into Green Roots Collection and this dress caught my eye. Jared also commented it was ‘cute’, so I tried it on. And it looks good. I felt really good in it. In the end, I didn’t actually have to pay full price for it, since they were running an unadvertised sale, $15 off if you try something on.
So to cut to the chase, I’m planning on wearing this dress to two outdoor weddings/receptions this month (2 different groups of people, so no one will notice I’m wearing this look twice). How would you wear it? With flats? Tights? A cardigan? What color? Jewelry? I do plan on wearing my hair down. There is a little red in the pattern. You can see and close up of the fabric here.
