What I wore: Sunday's Best

I actually wore this dress two days in a row, because it's one of my favorites and I don't think it gets enough wear. I styled it a different way, so I'll share that another time! I'm sure you will be able to notice the massive hole in my tights. Such a sad day; when we were at church I noticed a small string sticking up on my knee-and I'm a very nit-picky person-so I picked it and somewhere between walking, bending down to scoop up babies, and chasing kites all over the field my tights saw their final day. I'm not sure if I'm the only one, but when I wear the tights from Target, I can only get a few wears out of them then I have to retire them to the great box of once loved tights. Don't get me wrong, I  LOVE that Target offers such a variety of colors + styles: footless, knee length, ankle length, tights, and that they're so cheap! But I'm thinking that I should invest a few more dollars and get a few pairs in staple colors that will last a bit longer. 

Even though I love this outfit, I feel a bit self conscious about it. The dress was already too big when I bought it, but I loved it so much that I didn't care. To make matters worse, I accidentally put it in the dryer. Thank goodness my mom was here, and showed me how to stretch it back to it's normal size!!! (Reason No. 1 million and 11 why moms are awesome!) So the dress is wide on me, and when I decided to pair it with a long sleeve shirt, I had to tuck the shirt up and under to make it the right length. This made me look even more fluffed out and wide. I'm thinking if I wear this again, I'll pair it with a belt, that way you can at least see my natural waist.

  1. Cute. I wouldn't have thought to pull a shirt over this dress, but seeing as it's a little big (and wide) on me as well, I'll have to experiment with it a bit and mix it up.

    Thanks for the inspiration! And, have you ever purchased We Love Colors tights? They're the best and last forever. Super cozy and you can wear them all over the place and they'll hold up.

    1. I was actually going to ask you if it fits the same way on you? It's like the whole top, especially the chest area, is super saggy/grandma in an unflattering way.

      Yes, I own two pairs of We Love Colors, I'm hoping I get more for my birthday! :) I'm just so impatient, that I hate buying things offline when I can run to Target to get it, haha. I need to work on that!

  2. beautiful pics!!! I LOVE your dress =D
