Have you ever put together an outfit, realizing that something's missing before you even walk out the door, yet succumb to mediocrity and depart your home because you just don't have the time to fix it? Loaded question? Yes. But that's pretty much what happened with this outfit.
It needs a belt. In fact, it's crying out for a belt. And I knew this. Yet, nothing I paired with it seemed to work, and eventually you just have to carry on with your day. Although, there's something to be learned from every fashion error, and, in this case, I know I need to add something to my shopping list: a simple, thin black belt. That's all this outfit really needs. In fact, it's the finishing touch so many simple outfits need. So why don't I have this yet? I'll get to work...
However, belt or no belt, I loved wearing this dress. It was perfect for a hot summer day, and it survived the day's activities from morning til night. Case in point: morning - church, afternoon - lounging around the house, and evening - a friends get together. So what I'm really saying is that it's nice enough to wear to church, comfortable enough to double as pajamas, and casual enough to not freak out when a lump of hummus falls off a cracker and onto my lap while chatting with friends. What's not to love?
