I Have a Confession to Make .....
I have a little confession to make. Ready for this? Here it is.....I rarely ever wear a dress. Sad, I know. ha, ha. I can't even tell you the reason why, honestly. I love dresses, ruffles in moderation, and lovely feminine styles. So what is it? I have a few theories:
A. A dress just didn't seem practical as my kids' were growing up. Sometimes it was a struggle to even get out of my yoga pants and into something presentable!
B. When I go out somewhere I like not only to look nice, but I like to be comfortable. You have to admit, dresses and heels aren't always the epitomy of comfort. ;)
C. For many years we lived in a small country town and you just didn't see many girls/women wearing them! That probably shouldn't have stopped me, but with the above factors playing a part, it was just easier not to wear them. lol.
Now that my kids' are grown and we live in "the big city" I'm ready to add a few dresses to my wardrobe. Even though I like the dress in the photo I especially like how the stylists at Ruche accessorized it. The dress is pretty basic but once you add a rich red scarf, floral pumps and a droopy gray cardigan it's really beautiful.
Do YOU wear many dresses? How do you accessorize them?
