I have found the most versatile dress and I'm beyond excited to share with my followers. I won't keep you in suspense. The dress is from TJMaxx, and it was $14.99. I got it recently, so if you totally love it, you can probably find it still on the rack at that price. I don't think they'll last long though, so scoop one up soon.
There are a few reasons why this dress is so amazing. First of all, the length on the hem and the sleeves are perfect. Short enough to show some leg on the hem, but long enough to not show more than "some" leg. The sleeves are the perfect length to lend a bit of bunching at the cuff. I love that look on sleeve cuffs and skinny pants at the ankle. The heathered blue color gives the dress a bit of a casual feel, which gives you the ability to dress it up or down as much as you want.
I did a lot in this dress yesterday. It all started with a trip to the nail salon. We're headed to Vegas for a wedding and beauty prep is essential. I then went grocery shopping, had lunch with my husband, got my little guy some new sneakers, picked him up from school and ended the evening by going to dinner after we shook hands for our friend running for City Council. I was comfortable, confident and never once needed an outfit change.
I styed this dress yesterday with my favorite Chelsea Booties and my suede vest that I can't stop wearing. It was warm enough to go without tights or leggings yesterday, but in the future, you'll probably see me layering either underneath the dress. Tights with black booties and a leather jacket and it's a perfect nighttime look. Leggings, sneakers and a cardigan and I could wear it all weekend. I'll actually probably wear it on the plane trip to Vegas. It's so versatile, I'll style it casual for the plane and then layer necklaces and heels with it for evening.
You get a lot of bang for your buck with versatile pieces. Once you find one that works several ways, you'll wear it all the time. The best part is, if you style it in different ways, each time you wear it, no one will notice you wore it a couple days ago. I wish I had found this dress in a couple more colors. I really love it and I think you'll love it too. Enjoy!
