A Wrinkle in Time (or, a wrinkle in my dress)

You ever feel really good about an outfit? We’re not that different from each other – except once in a while I take pictures of my outfits (and hey, maybe you do too!) I felt great about this outfit all day long and then I take the pictures and see them…SO many wrinkles! I have this love/hate relationship with linen fabrics…

This dress wasn’t that badly wrinkled last time I wore it on here. I think I had been sitting on the bus back home before taking this picture. Note to self, take more pictures before going to work.

Anyhow, I’d recently been inspired by casual cool outfits of people wearing black hi-top converse over so many years. They’re just classic shoes. I own a low-top pair in grey that I wear off and on. I should have just bought the black ones a long time ago. I’ve been wearing them to work (cause I like to be comfy) and I even get little kids who tell me “COOL SHOES!”

My holiday dressing, my way

I like a good opportunity dress up, just like anyone else. But I can sure appreciate and enjoy the ability to be comfortable with your friends and family, instead of fancy but uncomfortable. I was saving this dress for a special occasion just like the holidays – because honestly, it is my first foray into wearing maxi dresses, when I said I would never wear one. *and this is the most maxi I think I will get!*

When I found this special dress, I really had to make an exception. Sea NYC is a brand I’ve admired from afar for some time. But I found a great deal at my local gem, Jeremy’s. It really is a perfect holiday dress to wear between our rainy days. I hope you had a happy holiday (or if you don’t celebrate, just an awesome week 🙂 ) I’m wrapping up some projects and posts to ring in 2015!
