The sun has finally come out for more than an hour! I’m celebrating with open toed shoes! It’s still very humid but I’ll take it.
I bought this dress on super sale in the Fall and have worn it several times, but just never managed to capture a picture of it. It’s a great simple dress in a lovely shade of grey. Jersey dresses make life easier. They are comfortable AND polished and they make getting dressed in the morning quick and painless – just add shoes and accessories. That being said, not all jersey dresses work for me and I won’t wear any jersey dress with out wearing my spanx. In comment on one of E.’s jersey dress posts reader Holly asked about our use of shapewear when wearing jersey. I can’t speak for the other chics, but I love my spanx and my knock-off spanx and am not comfortable in a jersey dress without them. Jersey shows everything! For this dress I wore my thicker knock-off spanx I purchased at Target a few years ago because I really wanted a smooth line but wasn’t worried about the dress being too tight. What about you? What kind of shapewear do you use and with what garments?
For my little pop of color in this neutral palette I wore my neck jade-colored pendant. I bought this pair of jade earrings from a street vendor just outside China Town in San Francisco. I loved the shape and color and thought they would be a great addition to my short-hair earring collection. Unfortunately, they are way too heavy – they stretch my earlobes (which I’m worried could have permanent effects). So, I just removed the earring hook and strong the pendant on a silver chain…voila I have a new statement necklace!
Ok, one more day of classes! I can do it! Hope the semester is wrapping up nicely for all of you!
