It’s the last day of this series and I’m cheating. While it’s been so fun to share dresses for every occasion with you, I’d be lying if I said I’m not excited to finish it! I knew from the beginning it would be a ton of work. I didn’t know just how much it would be though. I also knew I’d need to get Matt (my Instagram husband) on board. What a trooper he is! In all fairness I initially asked him in a moment of weakness (AKA when he was a few beers in at a brewery). I know what I’m doing. But he agreed and I couldn’t be more grateful he helped me pull this off!

I feel like everyone has tassel or pom pom fever right now. With everyone dressing like they just walked out of a Cinco de Mayo party, it can be hard to assess if this trend is here to stay. If this post on Instagram is any indication, it is. Poms on poms on poms! Let’s keep it going with this pom mini dress!

Now that we don’t have a car (we sold both of ours once we moved to Chicago last fall), I find myself having to carry a lot more with me. While my shoulders are getting stronger from toting around all my stuff, I’m all about packing as light as I can. I don’t need to look like The Hulk. So many of the dresses in this A Dress A Day series have been about versatility. Today, I’m making it obvious as I take a dress from day to night! I even challenged Leah from Eat Pray Wear Love to do the same!

A Dress A Day: Afternoon Tea (Day 27)

I’m not a fan of tea. Gasp. I know. Personally, I’m not a fan of any warm beverage (yep, that counts out coffee too – shocker). However, I adore the concept of having tea. Just ask Matt. Last year in Ireland, I conned him into going to tea when we stayed at Ashford castle and it did not disappoint. The scones alone were worth all the teasing I got for the rest of the trip for making him drink the whole pot of tea. When we shot this post at the Langham here in Chicago, I saw that they did a tea too!  So if you need something to wear, this lace blue dress gives me all the feels!

Errands. That’s a word that will get you to say “ugh” every time. I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone say “I love running errands”! Thank god for Amazon Prime. But when you’ve found the one thing you can’t get off Amazon, you want to be cute and comfortable when you’re checking off to dos. In comes this shirtdress.Read More
