21 Apr Turning Heads Linkup – At Home Casual – Camo Tee Dress with Ruffled Jacket
What is it about camo that makes us love it?
My Outfit and a Story
I have some camo jeans from LOFT in this post –Camo, Floral and a Moto Jacket.
I recently wore this NYDJ camo skirt with floral here on this post.- Mixing Spring Patterns
and now, I have this ultra-comfy Target dress I am wearing today. And it’s $20!!
Let me give you a bit of background. You aren’t going to believe this, and even I laugh at it!
When I was working on my Master’s Degree, in my late 20’s, I had broken up with my fiance that I met at Music School. Now, that isn’t the funny part.
I met another guy on campus, and he was very much into hunting. So, what did I do? I went and took a class to get my “hunter’s license”!
Why did I do that? Well, for the guy.
When I look at it now, I never had any intention of hurting an animal! I LOVE animals and would never do it. We walked through the woods,
he would talk to me about hunting squirrels. I don’t want to hurt squirrels.
So this story basically taught me a lesson, don’t do something for a guy. Or anyone but yourself. It made me think of it, as I am wearing
camo! Would you believe a birthday gift of mine that he bought me was a 410 rifle? I still laugh about that.
Anyhow, I don’t and never will hunt. As I said, I can’t watch it on tv. What was I thinkin’?
Now.. back to the camo dress.
This is Target. It comes in plenty of other colors but I was drawn to the camo. It is as comfy as pjs, so why not? I thought it would be a cute
casual piece and easy to wear around the house or for the grocery errands. I thought some of you readers may like a mix of dressy looks and more casual ones to wear around the house.
I am wearing a size XS and it is roomy and comfortable.
I wanted to add a jacket. as the dress is sleeveless, and wore my White House Black Market white ruffled denim jacket. So , its that dichotomy of feminine masculine that I love too!
I thought I would share a pic of my pups as they are the best and just such a joy and comfort! They love the extra walks!
