Soooo this week with the Nettes we will be sharing some of our favorite casual dresses. Truthfully, I love dresses, but I don’t buy them all that often. When I was working as a pediatric Speech Therapist, it was tough to sit on the floor with my kids in a dress (I see London. I see France. I see Ms. Antoinette’s underpants). So I shied away from dresses and skirts for a while. I’m adding them back into my wardrobe now that I’m not hittin a lick (Southern Translation- Not working- aka Bum). They’re so easy to throw on with boots, sneakers, flats or wedges. Add a few accessories, and you’ve got yourself an outfit my friend. Dresses are da bomb (Yes I’ve been informed by my 13 year old that no one says that anymore).
This striped number (I do love me some stripes!) was found at the cutest little shop in Clayton, The Market at Three Little Birds. It caught my eye because it’s striped (Duh) and has the prettiest little sleeves. The fabric is nice and stretchy, but I have to admit, it clings a bit to my pooch. I had to do some sucking in during this photo shoot. Lol. You can find other cute options here and here.
I paired my dress with, you guessed it, another pair of beautiful Frye boots. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times, you can’t go wrong with Frye!!! Now I know they are worth the original price, but I ALWAYS wait for them to go on SALE. I’m not a Kardashian you know! I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m sure this dress would look just as cute with my Converse sneakers or my red Sam Edelman sandals.
Look at my crazy kitty boy getting in on the action!! He cracks me up! Goldie is a hot mess, but he sure knows how to strike a pose!
Once again, my sweet friend Lynn took these beautiful pics. We had every intention of getting some super cool outdoor shots somewhere in Clayton, but the wind was brutal. I mean trash cans flying, trees snapping brutal. So inside we stayed.
Speaking of dresses, what was your favorite Red Carpet look last night at the Oscars?? I would love to hear!!! Here are a couple of my faves!
