Ah, time to welcome in the wonderful spring weather here in Oklahoma, it’s been sunny and warm a couple of days on and off. The weather hasn’t made up it’s mind yet, eventually it will get tired of being confused and start spewing tornadoes at us. Of course, after last year I would be completely happy to skip all the destruction for awhile! I live right on the city line for Moore, last years big tornado nearly came through my neighborhood. That’s Oklahoma living for you.
But the beautiful weather prompted me the pull down my warm weather box and start unpacking my summer dresses, shorts and sandals. I really wanted to get in there because I knew that I had a denim dress in there and it’s a big trend this year. Well, mine is chambray, but close enough, right?
I have had this dress for years! I hear people sighing already, I do this to my friends. I won’t wear a really nice piece for years and then I finally break it out and everyone wants one. Great news though, I went through my favorite online boutiques and found many, MANY similar ones. I mean, if I needed another one, I could spy a few right now I’d snatch up. But one is enough for me, it is. I just unpacked around 20ish summer dresses because I’m a clothes hoarder! So I’m probably on a dress buying ban for now… with the exception of that shift dress on it’s way in from Ruche. And the one from Oasap, ahem.
I love the shape of this dress because it’s flattering! I’m a bit self-conscious about my hips but I try to accept them for the curvy beauties they are. This dress just hides them and takes all my worries away. Today I was thinking about comfort and how I might wear it to feel stylish but comfortable. The first look would probably be along the lines of lunch or grocery shopping, because you always run into someone you know at those times right? I hate leaving the house unkempt, occasionally it happens but I just like to feel somewhat put together. The second look is because I’m a mom! I can extend the life of my dress by tossing on a sweatshirt and some comfy vans to go out with the kiddo. I love the “stylish” comeback sweatshirts are making, hello 80s.
I window shopped at a few of my favorite boutiques to give you a few leads for your own denim dress if you don’t have one/need another. I love these styles:
