This dress always reminds me of something you'd see on Little House on the Prairie, and for that very reason I often avoid wearing it to work. Tiny flowers and vines on a cotton A-line dress, it reminds me of something Melissa Gilbert wore as Laura Ingalls to go fishing in. Since I'm trying to stretch my current wardrobe as far as it will go this dress needed to be conquered. Pairing it with a large, modern looking belt was the first step to taking it from the prairie to Penn Station. My sleek Aerosoles ankle boots (read: the only shoes I've been wearing lately because schlepping for 3+ hours every day is exhausting) kept me comfy enough to hike through some leftover snow, while keeping me from looking like I was headed to the one-room schoolhouse. There you have it, a pretty basic update of a dress I'd been avoiding for awhile because I didn't want to look like I stepped out of a Michael Landon's imagination.
Thanks for all your sweet comments lately, it's taking me awhile to respond to them because there's never been quite so many!H&M dress, AA "Bordeaux" tights, F21 belt, Aerosoles boots, Kirra hat
