Our English department was gifted substitutes for the day so that we could grade diagnostic essays as a team...allllll the live long day. I knew the thermostat would breech 90 degrees today, so I opted for a dress. (I even shaved this morning despite my unwashed hair.)
I was wildly comfortable all day until the wind decided to play peek-a-boo with my wrap dress as I walked out of the building carrying so much stuff that I nearly faceplanted into the pavement in an effort to keep the world from seeing my lady bits. Perverted wind.
Dress: Banana Republic Outlets this summer (got it for like $25 bucks or something equally inexpensive--bought it the same day as this dress)
Shoes: Jessica Simpson via Marshall's
Necklace: Good question--can't remember
Earrings: The Limited
Hair bow: Forever 21
Still working with Jeff on that whole detail shot business. Baby steps.
I know the second clip looks silly. (Okay, I didn't know that until I viewed this picture. Dangit.)
However, it pulls in the color of my shoes, and it's just cute. Ignore its little friend chilling below it.
Hair clips need companions too.
I've also worn it with this dress.
By the way, this is the first wrap dress that I've ever owned. They never look right on me, but I think this one is a winner. I hope?
Occasion: Work (marathon of essay grading)
Temperature: Hot outside and bearable inside
Comfort Rating: 8 (wind picked up my dress, and I didn't master the wrapping well enough, which forced me to readjust several times while sitting.)
Comments: I love the button details on the shoulders of this dress. I can wear it without a tank if I'm not at work. I'm so excited to wear this dress with boots in the fall!
