Sweater: LOFT // Dress: T.J. Maxx
I've been planning on buying a maxi skirt or dress since 2012. Really, I have. The stipulations were "not cost more than $20" and "not look frumpy". I couldn't find one, but maybe I didn't look all that hard. A few weeks ago I came across this maxi dress at T.J. Maxx. I would've gone for navy blue, but they didn't have it in my size. I grabbed this black and white one and it was kind of tight at first but loosened up throughout the day. Also, I threw this sweater over it because I figured a body-con-on-top maxi dress wasn't appropriate for school. However, I know maxi dresses/skirts are appropriate for school because I've watched every teacher but me wear them at my school in Missouri and the same here too….and no wonder: This was the most comfortable thing I've ever worn. It was only $19.99 so I might go back and comb the racks for another. Maybe in blue or green?
I've gotten a few questions about Skirtember. Remember Skirtember? Last year was a failure for me because I didn't have as many skirts as I thought I did. Dresses are so easy for work here though, so I've consciously been buying more over the last few months. However, there is no Skirtember in the works at this time.
In a funny coincidence though, I realized I've worn a skirt or dress every day this week. It's still hot, so pants are quite out of the question. Tomorrow is jeans day though. Wearing jeans gives me a headache.
