House Marmie

05.23.10b striped shirtdress-J.Crew, old
silver t-strap sandals--J.Crew
orange necklace--10,000 Villages, remixed
blue headband--aerie, remixed
I think I felt like I needed to compensate after two less-than-full-coverage outfits in a row.  :)  I don’t consider myself a conservative dresser despite my occupation (more on that another time), but something about the low-cut top on Friday night and the super short skirt yesterday made me long for a skirt I could genuflect in comfortably, flat shoes, and a ponytail.  I guess I just crave balance?
I’ve had this dress for years and years and years and I still wear it at least once a season.  It was on sale at J.Crew when I bought it and even though it seemed like a lot of dress for someone as short as I, I just loved it, especially with flat sandals.  It’s airy and breezy while still completely modest and the tie-waist and pockets are perfect complements to the ever-so-slight seersucker fabric.  And the sandals are another purchase from J.Crew many moons ago.  The silver has actually worn off underneath since I’ve lived in them for about three summers now.  Price per wear?  Definitely under $1!  Yes!
