I’m not really a dress girl. I don’t like to be dressed up. Jeans and a t-shirt, or pants and a blouse (if I need to look like more of an adult), are much more my speed.
That being said, there is something about the simplicity of a dress. It’s one item, throw it on and you’re done thinking about your outfit for the day. AND when I am faced the with prospect of melting into a puddle on the street every time I leave the house, sometimes a dress really is the only option.
That’s why I settled on the dress and sneakers combo. Sure, it’s a dress, it’s dressy. But add sneakers, now it’s a cool dress. You’re a cool girl in an unfussy, cool outfit. You know what I mean? In a dress and sneakers, you are an unfussy, cool girl who can also go for a quick jog around the block and not melt into a puddle. You win.
