This is a super casual dress that I found while thrifting, but a boyfriend sweater, flower pin and heels can dress it up. On the other hand, I wore the outfit on the right to a cookout by simply grabbing a button-up from the closet and knotting it in the front. I frequently wear button-ups to work, so I like to find other ways to incorporate them into my weekend wardrobe.
Sometimes I wish I worked in an environment where I could wear this every day, but as an engineer on construction sites, my work wear is mostly jeans and khakis. However, I'm sure a lot of you do work in formal environments, and there's nothing more classic than a black dress or skirt. Why not have both in the same piece of clothing? I actually bought this dress for the groundbreaking of my current project, and I have a feeling it's going to serve me well at many work functions!
I wear this dress all.the.time. It's a light, airy fabric perfect for summer. I also think it'll make a great transition this winter with a bright colored tight. For an afternoon lounging around with friends, I like to throw a tshirt over it to make it even more comfortable and casual.
Thanks for having me, Elaine! I hope your very fashionable readers have fun re-engineering their own dresses!
