A Simple Dress

 Dress/Jacket/Sandals: Target; Cardi: borrowed from sister (American Eagle); Necklace: F21

Sometimes dresses are hard for me.  I love them for their simplicity and comfort and ability to make me feel put together, but I often feel I need to do something "more" to them.  I originally wore a belt with this dress, but ended up not liking it.  The layers were mostly for warmth, and during the heat of the day, it was just the dress.  And you know what?  I liked it - for its simplicity, not in spite of it.  Sometimes simple is good.

Oh yes, and that spot in my hair?  Not a lovely flower petal, but a sticker.  Welcome to life with a toddler.


  1. It's funny - I love simple. I always have trouble dressing it up a little. I like your dress - the stripes and the waist thing (see how fasion savvy I am?) make it more than just "simple".

  2. I love throwing on a dress because it doesn't need much else other than a few little accessories :) Your subtle pattern mixing looks so cute!

  3. I agree - a simple dress and cardigan are absolutely perfect. Although, with the necklace and stripes, I don't know if I'd call it simple - but I would call it beautiful!

  4. Oh! I love this dress!


  5. Love the soft colors of the cardigan + dress and that you combined stripes and floral. I agree, sometimes the simplicity of a dress can be baffling. :)

  6. Simplicity was more than enough in this case. I love how you wore this dress.

    Your little bump is so cute! Congratulations on learning that you'll be welcoming a little girl soon. How exciting. :)

  7. I have such a fear of trying pattern mixing, but love the floral and stripes in the softer colors!


  8. The dress looks so pretty on you...I like the neutrals with the black leather1
