one dress, three ways

Okay, I know I haven't been a very reliable blogger. But I got up this morning and thought "I'll make a giant post today to kick-start my new blog regimen." So here goes.

The is a dress I got at H&M in a sale a while back. It's a navy-blue, jersey tank dress with a scoopneck. It's simple, comfy, and cute.

(sorry about my face/hair, I decided to take all the pictures this morning so I didn't have to deal with crazy wet hair.)

This first look is something I wore last week to see Eclipse with some of my friends. Despite the fact that it was the first day of July, I live in Seattle and Seattle summers only begin after the Fourth of July. So it was about 56 degrees and cloudy.

dress: H&M
vest: Gap
cardigan: Target
I love that vest. My favorite thing about this look is that it's kind of sporty and yet cute at the same time. I'm forever trying to find a happy medium between the two.
(I also originally wore this with black tights and boots, but it was toooo hot to put those on. It's the seventh of July, so naturally it's 89 degrees today.)
The next look is kind of a spring-y way to wear this dress. I like that it looks like a cute little jumper, in kind of a little-kid way. I always try to make myself look younger because people always confuse me with my college-aged sister. Annoying.

shirt: Target

The last look is my favorite and the most summery of all the ensembles (I love using that word in relation to clothes).

scarf: my mom's
belt: off a dress from Salvage Life



  1. Scarf! Cute!
    Also, I like saying summery too, because it sounds kind of like "summary". Like, instead of "the most summery of all the ensembles", you might say, "the summary of all the ensembles". You see?

  2. I like a 40's style swim suits. I don't however think that being fat is necessarily a good thing. People are getting heavier every year, and its a very big health problem. Sure in the past women were sedentary, and therefore more curvy, although, if you have ever worn vintage, you will note they were still far thinner in the waist then most modern women. Then people realized that a thin, athletic build was healthier, and that is when it became the ideal. So, when you call a regular slender person skeletal, you may think you are doing all those "real" girls a favor, but you are not. Those "real" builds lead to heart disease, diabetes, edema and much else. Anorexia is not a problem for teenaged girls outside the modeling industry. Fat is the problem.
