Printed Navy Sundress

IMG_3833

Morning Ladies!

I think sundresses have to have been  invented by women. The most comfortable kind of dress out there. I have 2 words that have to play a part with me and fashion. Comfort and Style. Yes, those two can go hand and hand.

This dress has stood the test of time. I think it was the print that I really liked when I first bought it. The great thing about dresses or sundresses are that they are practically an outfit almost ready. Add shoes, jewelry, and viola! Your outfit. The ease of dressing in a sundress is another thing that had to appeal to me. I don’t really sit and stare aimlessly into the closet.

Now, how many of us, require more closet space? Being a blogger, and getting deals from Poshmark and Ebay, makes one;s money go further, but the closet space doesn’t expand with each purchase does it/I have a couple solutions ( besides stop buying clothes :-)) Purchase a couple of large see through plastic bins and keep only the current season out, hanging up. Fold and put away other seasons as they are just taking up closet space. You can go into the bin if you need to, ( i.e the need for a clear bin).. Next, get those pretty colored velvet hangers. I used to use plastic ones, but these actually take up less space, so buy those, and ya have more space. Last, move your hubby’s wardrobe, to that empty closet downstairs. He doesn’t really need the space right? I know some guys who chose clothes by going up to their wives with the item in hand and asking ” Does this smell?” and if not, that is the attire chosen for the day. I am sorry, we have higher standards, so space is optimal! hehe. ( important” I am not advising you take over your significant other’s side of the closet)..

I do, however, think dresses are just great in this regard. So, I took this sundress, I have had for a number of year, paired it with white espradrilles, my crossover ruffled navy crinkled bag by Treesje, and some coral jewerly, as I picked up this color in the dress.

Enjoy your day,

Jess xo

    Jess,
    I agree, these must have been invented by women ( with your figure in mind, perhaps?)
    I love this dress, and bag, and the great nail polish. I love my velvet hanger, too, they do add space.
    MY hubby is quite good about my “sharing” his closet, even though i have two others..
    stay gorgeous.
    xx, elle

    You’re right, sundresses are terrific for a variety of reasons and yours is really lovely! It’s supposed to be in the upper 90’s all week here in Nashville so I think I’ll make use of mine 😉

    Hi Jess,
    with navy you can always get me, so wonderful dress and bag. You are so lucky, you still can wear summerclothes.
    Here fall has started, I think at least 4 weeks too early and the maximum we get is 20C and very cold morning and evening. So I start to pick fall clothes.
    Enjoy your summer

    Lovely print on your dress. And I agree, those dresses that make an outfit all by themselves are great.

    I am keeping my space by cleaning out often and letting go of things that don’t fit me. Either by size or by style.

    I totally agree Jess! Comfort plus style is essential! You look gorgeous in that beautiful, timeless sundress. The nice thing about summer dresses, my daughter says, you don’t need to think about matching it (like you do with skirts or pants)! And as you say, add jewelry and sandals, and you’re good to go!

    LOVE your sense of humour!! 🙂
