All Dressed Up With Nowhere To Go



Sometimes it's fun to get a little dressed up for no reason at all. It's fun just to wear something a little special for the sake of donning a pretty dress, even if you have nowhere exciting to go. Since I've been busy at work, I haven't been going out much and this gorgeous colorful striped dress from New York & Co has just been sitting around on a hanger waiting to be worn. I finally decided that I didn't need an occasion for this dress because an ordinary weekday was occasion enough!




This dress could also be made more casual with a little cardigan or even a denim jacket for work. I decided to keep things simple, though, and show off the dress in all its colorful splendor by wearing it by itself, save for a few key pastel accessories like my Mansur Gavriel circle bag and mint suede shoes. Come to think of it, isn't there a royal wedding this weekend? I guess if I was invited to it, I might actually have someplace to wear this dress, even if it is a dress that only cost a mere $40 because it definitely looks more expensive than it is and worthy of a royal wedding. The only problem, in addition to not being invited, would be getting a fancy hat or fascinator but that could easily be arranged!
