Dressing For The Day

Dresses are definitely what I feel most comfortable in. They give me confidence, make me feel like such a lady, & bring me so much joy to walk, twirl, run, skip, frolic, & jaunt around in. Ok, so maybe I don’t skip on a daily basis, but I could & doing so in a dress is like living out my childhood dreams. If wearing dresses makes me this happy, then doing so should not be reserved for evenings & special occasions. No, dresses should be worn on the daily, exuding all the lady-like confidence & joy.

Let me share with you what I look for when shopping for day dresses, & how I like to style them for an everyday, casual yet sophisticated look.

Choosing Your “No-Fuss” Dress

A good day dress is a “no fuss” dress, in my opinion. One that I won’t have to worry about revealing too much when I lean forward or bend over to pick something up. It’s comfortable, not tight, & makes you smile when wearing it. I love this classic wrap dress from Chicwish for literally all of those reasons. This dress is comfortable to wear. It’s a nice, no-fuss length, & there is even a small button at the top of the wrap to keep from revealing more than you’d like. I love the subtle & sweet blue & yellow floral pattern with the slightly puffy sleeves. Finding a “no-fuss” dress with great design details such as these ensures you’ll wear it with ease over & over again.

Styling Your Day Dress

Styling day dresses looks slightly different depending on the current season, but the same principles apply. For shoes, a classic ballet flat is a great year-round choice. In the fall & winter, you could also pair your day dresses with a pair of knee high boots, loafers, or oxfords. Choose the pair that will be most comfortable for your daily activities while still adding to that feminine, boss babe vibe.

A great bag like this embroidered brown bag I can’t stop wearing, is an ideal bag to have in your collection. It can be worn year-round & has that same “no-fuss” feel as your day dress. There are no zippers that get stuck, contraptions to maneuver, just a simple snap under the buckle for easy opening & closing. It also comes with a gorgeous embroidered crossbody strap for when you need to be hands-free!

Accessorizing your day dress should be minimal & casual, yet strategic & cohesive. Adding one simple hair clip adds a bit of interest to your look while also keeping the hair out of your face. Functional & fashionable! For earrings, I say go as big as you want! I love these pearl drops for a bit of intrigue & design detail while still being very minimal. Pair with your favorite everyday lipstick & a fun pair of sunglasses & your look is complete!

Mixing Florals

This outfit perfectly displays print mixing that follows all the rules I outlined in my Print Mixing For Beginners post. The contrasting sizes & common color palette help make these pieces a perfect match. Also, I love the silhouette this outfit creates. The high waisted shorts combined with the wrap top & puffy sleeves make that classic feminine shape I’m all about.

What To Look For…

When it comes to searching for the perfect pair of feminine shorts, there are a few things I tend to look for. First off, I don’t want them to be too short or too tight. I like my shorts to fully cover me so that I can even bend down without fear of showing more skin than I would like. This goes without saying, but of course they will also have to be high-waisted. I can’t comfortably wear non-high waisted things anymore. What can I say, I’m hooked!

As far as details go, I love these shorts because of the lovely floral print on display. Not to mention this is a Laura Ashley print which I have loved basically my entire life. I search for those details like a fun floral print, bows, or a unique color to make a statement & bring that feminine flair I love so much.
