Busy Day, Busy Dress

I gave up on my separates-wearing today and went with a dress:

I love how easy dresses are; which is why I think I have so many.  Anything that requires a minimum of effort on my part will always find a home in my closet.  I mean, it’s just a dress (vintage), flats (Target), a belt (Gap) and a bracelet (vintage).  Does it get any easier than that?

And I definitely needed easy today.   I’m getting off early today for Last Thursday (so excited!!!) so I have to rush to get stuff done at work.  It’s a busy day and not only is my dress easy, it’s appropriately busy.  But, I like this print, both the busy-ness and the colors.  I’m a big fan of bright floral prints, but I think those with deeper tones are easier to style year-round.  I’m already looking forward to wearing this dress with riding boots and tights this fall.

Happy Thursday, Everyone!

  3. The dress is absolutely darling! I love the busy print and it looks great paired with those bright flats. Sometimes an effortless outfit is just the thing you need for a busy day. You look lovely as always, Gracey!


  4. I agree dresses are the easiest....Oregon just has to start looking more like summer now....hmmm.

  5. Amen to easy dresses (not to be confused to easy-access dresses)! ;)

  6. I love dresses as well for the ease of them, but I fall into the darn blogger trap of going, "it's too simple! I need to jazz this up, throw a vest on or something!" and then I miss just the simplicity of a beautiful dress. This dress has such a lovely print, I really like how you just let the dress shine and then added a little color with your pretty open-toed heels. :)

  7. this dress is amazing. you are looking fantastic.

  8. I find it interesting that you describe wearing a dress as easy. (And this one is lovely.) Since I can't wear clothes like this in public, I'm not familiar with the ease of different outfits. Your notion counters what I would have expected because, when I wear a dress (in private), I always feel more glamorous than with just separates and put more energy into my presentation. I like learning about female life from pros like you, out there on the battlefront.

  9. I agree - plus even though putting on a dress is easy, when you do, it always looks like you put more effort into it.

  10. Dresses are the best, but I get where you're coming from. I'm finding it's hard to style my favorites in ways that are different enough to be featured on my blog. There are only so many shoe/ belt combinations a girl can do! Have a great weekend!

  11. Ah love this dress, you're totally right - dresses are so easy to wear! I've been trying to find some cute knee length dresses but it's proving hard work, may get the sewing machine out :)

  12. Oh, I haven't been to your blog in ages! It's good to be back, you look just as cute as ever. That is such a pretty floral dress, and I adore those bright shoes!

    May the force be with you.

  13. I love this floral dress and how you wore the skinny belt around the waist. So cute so cute! :)

  14. Oh I love it when you wear this dress. I have a ton of dresses for the same reason - it's just too danged easy :)


Hooray! Comments! I love comments!! (And cake, but if you just leave a comment, I'll manage the cake on my own).
