Red – Nat Day 3

It’s my favorite color. This might be due to the fact that most of my life my mother and grandmother, among others, have consistently commented on how red tops compliment my complexion. I happen to like flattery and encouraging words, so red it is!

This is my first time wearing this thrifted dress. It’s made of soft jersey-type material, making it comfy and flow-y. For real, we may be seeing this one again in the upcoming weeks.

Dress: Old Navy, thrifted. Boots: Chaps, Kohl’s.

The best part of this picture? Just after it was taken we walked into Pei Wei, where I realized the entire Friday night dining room had full view of my mini-photo shoot. Sigh. Ha! If only they knew about DADIM…

How has you DADIM started off? Are you loving it? Frustrated? Excited about future outfits?

MB’s Dress a Day Day 3!

Image

Today I wore my favorite color combination — white, red and black!  Not too exciting, but I love it so much.  The only thing that could make it better is if I threw some grey in there, and my jacket was grey today I just didn’t get a picture of it.  

Dress is GAP, leggings are Urban Outfitters, shoes are Jessica Simpson.

The mistake…

ok so the picture you are about to see. (you just looked down didn’t you!) Well anyway this picture is of an unfaltering, short, ill fitting, missing a button, dress that I got on clearance at Plato’s Closet. It was literally two dollars. In fact I am a little embarresed to post it online for the world to see but hey we keep it honest here ImageBut here is the true confession. You ready… When I bought it I thought it was a skirt... somehow I missed the straps that button to the back…Got home only to discover I had bought a dress for two dollars.  But I am resilient and I thought it looked like a skirt…

What do you think?

Here are some close ups of me wearing it as a skirt.  Oh and the scarf that I love simply because it has pompoms around it which I think adds a excitement to the scarf

Skirt…err dress: Plato’s Closet $2

Emily – Day 3

Emily - Day 3

I am hoping I won’t have to find 2 dresses very often, but I know it will happen!

This morning to go garage sale-ing I wore target leggings with a splurge (that I regret) nordstrom sweater dress and an infinity scarf that was a gift.

To work, I wore the same leggings with a banana republic outlet dress and boots I got as a ‘hand-me-down’ from my younger sister.

I was glad for a chilly morning to get to wear my leggings again. Does anyone have opinions or thoughts on leggings with dresses in the summer? Can I keep wearing them, but maybe with flats instead of boots?

Darker – Nat Day 2

Nat day 2 skirt

Shirt: Old Navy, thrifted. Skirt: Connection 18, given to me by a friend who was cleaning out her closet.

Darker. No, no, I’m not referring to my skin (in case you were wondering), which is rocking the pale whiteness of sunless days. (Shout-out to my fellow office-employed DADIM-ers!) I’m talking about the lack of lighting in my photo, which matches the rather dreary weather we’ve been experiencing lately here in N.C. Also dark is my skirt–a brown super-comfy item, with fun belt loops (although I’ve yet to actually wear it with a belt).

Random: Yesterday I found myself picking out what dresses/skirts I’m wearing each day through the weekend. With a limited section of my wardrobe to choose from, this month might help me cut down on the time it takes to get ready in the morning. Not too shabby!

Earrings: gift from years ago.

Shoes: Predictions, thrifted.

Accessories: from blah to lookn’ good!

ImageAccessories really do make a world of difference. The dress is one I found on the Target Clearance rack and though meh I do not really know about this but I bought it anyway because I liked the skirt at the bottom and it was under $10.  But here is where accessories make all the difference!

Cardigan: Dillard’s (with a giftcard I got at high school graduation that is how long I have had that!)

Shoes: Target gift from mom again oh but I love them so!

Earrings: gift from mom

Necklace: free from a random box of bead necklaces

MB’s Day 2

Image

The weather didn’t disappoint, did it y’all?  And by disappoint I mean not suck to the max…

It was a good opportunity to wear this dress, though, because I fear it is a little short to wear on it’s own, but I could always wear leggings with it too.  Old Navy eyelet dress, GAP denim pearl snap shirt, Urban Outfitter tights, J. Crew leather riding boots.

Accessories are probably not going to change up too much, but I will put in extra effort, I promise!!  Warby Parker Winston glasses round out the outfit today.

Emily – Day 2

Emily - Day 2

I cheated today. I taped an interview 2 weeks ago, and wore the same thing so that it wouldn’t look quite so taped during the live show today at 4. Luckily I wore a dress when we taped! It was nice to not have to pick out an outfit.

Black dress (with pockets) from Dillards that I got a couple of years ago for $7. It needs to be retired, but it is so comfortable! Black flats from target, charming charlies necklace and earrings.

Emily – Day 1

Emily - Day 1

(Hoping I am posting this correctly…) I got to see two other dress enthusiasts yesterday! It was fun to see other ladies in dresses. We should do a Waco happy hour at the end of the month!

Back to the clothes – I wore a (very) old Loft dress, banana republic cami and my new Kenneth Cole black wedges that you will be seeing a lot!
