Orange Plaid Dress

Hi Ladies!
Something about sundresses I love. Perhaps it is the almost ready-made outfit one has when wearing.

I put on the sundress, add earrings and some cute shoes, and viola! an outfit. It is also the comfort factor. I used to be a marathon watcher of Stacy and Clinton’s or Trudy and show What Not to Wear. I know the word “comfort” was almost a four letter word in their book. As if “comfort” has to be equated with sloppy! Well, I am telling you, and I am sure you know that it doesn’t have to be.. I feel comfortable, and put together. I used to go into Loft and buy a sundress every year. The hat I kind of bought on a whim as it goes with my bathing suit.

This was one I bought about four years ago, and I still like the style and colors. The colors are what first attracted me to it, and the style. I don’t have many plaids in my wardrobe, but this was a style I really liked so I went with it. I just love the mixture of oranges, yellows, tans, olive. This kind of dress is great for a summer picnic, and outdoor concert, or just to wear as an everyday dress. And yes, it is comfortable, as I believe our clothes should be!!

Have a great day!

    What a cute, fun dress! I love the pattern. It looks perfect for a picnic or lunch + cocktails on an outside patio on a sunny summer day. And you’re right, it looks very comfortable but not at all sloppy. Stacy and Clinton would be proud!

    I used to constantly watch that show too!! πŸ™‚ While I absolutely loved it, I couldn’t imagine life without more casual outfits like this one. It’s always fun to pair a hat and great bag with a casual look too to give it even more personality.

    Your plaid dress is so pretty. I love it very much and the floppy hat looks awesome on you – wear them more often. The dress pairs well with the cognac leather accessories.

    Welcome by to see my new dresses this week. Thank you and Happy Holiday Weekend!! Ada. =)

    Hi Jess,
    what a lovely summer outfit. Looks like a very hot day you had. Hat, shoes and -of course- bag in the matching colours are very pretty.
    Take care, dear Jess
