Style Challenge #1

Wear a dress.

I'm all about challenges these days.  

A challenge is what I need to get any sort of motivation to do anything.  In fact, I do this weird thing where I'm running late for work every morning, because I challenge myself to make sure the house is all cleaned up before I go.  

Audrey at Putting Me Together is *challenging* us all to put some more thought into style.  I desperately need this.  I'm aware that outfit photos have all but disappeared from the blog.  Truthfully that's because I come home from school and within 27 seconds I look like this:

I'm too…something…(trying to avoid the word lazy) to take a picture.  And the weather is generally pretty yucky this time of year.  Yesterday, we lucked out with some sun for the first time in a week.

Dress: Express // Leggings: Lauren Conrad // Boots: old // Scarf: Target (via Michael in a swap!)

I've had this dress for over a year and I can't decide how I feel about it.  It's not particularly flattering and the sleeves are kind of bothersome.  But it's easy.  Leggings, dress, boots…it doesn't get any easier.

Wear a dress:  Challenge complete.
Next week is Wear a bright color and the week after is Copy an outfit you pinned.
Link ups are on Thursdays, so you should join in!


  1. I really like the dress. I also don't feel that straight up and down shirtdresses like this are the most flattering of cuts--I like something that goes in at the waist and has a flared skirt, but they're also a part of my wardrobe. They're great for layering with leggings and with polka dots like that one, they're not boring!

  2. I don't have any shirt dresses but I think that one's really cute. I love to layer dresses in the winter and that one is perfect. Looks great on you. Also - on the whole getting comfy thing as soon as you walk in the door... totally there with you. Except my hair is usually up too!

  3. I change out of my school clothes as soon as I walk in the door too. And most of my school outfits these days require very little effort.

    Easy dresses, leggings, and boots are the best for winter!

  4. Ooh I really like this challenge idea!! I wanted to do more "fashion" (idk if you can call it fashion in my life haha) posts! I just LOVE that dress and scarf combo!

  5. I've fallen into such an embarrassing slump with my clothes that I don't even want to talk about it. Maybe I need to take this challenge (I hear laughing in my head....haha). You look seriously cute in that dress though, so it was definitely a win for you!

  6. Love this, you look great! I so need to up my game on fashion, I've been wearing a lot of the same outfits week to week and I'm getting bored of it myself!

  7. I love love love that dress on you! Tunic-style dresses are my favorite, and the only kind I really wear/feel like they flatter my body shape. And you can't go wrong with black and polka dots, and the sleeves don't look weird at all! A+ on the contrasting colored scarf, too. You're cute.

  8. I put lounge attire on immediately upon returning home.

    I really like that dress and outfit in general.

  9. That dress looks great on you!

    I'm the same way after I get home. I'm usually coming home after a work out, and I've been showering at the gym lately. So I come in the door and change into my pajamas. I mean, it's dark out by then, so why not? Other times, I'm already wearing leggings so....can't get too much more comfortable than that! :)


Comments make my day!
