Fashion Challenge: Dresses

One of my New Year's Resolutions was to wear more dresses since I always feel most comfortable in a shirt, cardigan, and jeans. I like the idea of dresses, but in the summertime my legs always feel so exposed and then in the winter I feel like it's too cold to wear dresses and skirts, even with thick tights. But I really, really want to get into the habit of wearing dresses and skirts more.

When I went to see Beauty and the Beast in 3D, I wore a blue dress and thick cableknit tights (with a cardigan, coat, and boots, of course). You can see a bit of the dress detailing here. I felt so proud of myself! Especially since it was freeze-your-ass-off cold that night.

Since I want to wear more dresses, I bought two new ones. A gray and burgandy-striped sweater dress on sale at Nordstrom, and a lacey bright red dress from Forever 21.

Here are some ways that I plan on wearing these dresses...

Sweater dress with black cableknit tights and boots.

Forever 21 brown slouchy boots.

With pink and white oxford flats.

Lacey red dress with cableknit tights.

A more casual look for class with a blue button up and Converse.

  1. Ooh, I really like the red. :)

  2. love these dresses! I know what you mean. I love dresses, but when I wear them I feel like i am too dressed up and people are looking at me and its annoying so i grab my jeans. I feel like I can't pull off dresses all the time. time to start being more clothes adventurous!

    1. Thanks! That's what I do too! I always want to wear a dress and lay it out, and then when it comes time to actually get dressed I just give up and wear jeans. lol

      We can be clothing adventurous together!
