a woman is a woman
I "girl-ed up" over the past weekend for a lunch. There are times when I feel like wearing a dress is the only appropriate option and this was one of those instances, to say the least.
More and more, I grativate towards wearing my dresses with flat sandals, and so on Sunday, I gave this formula another spin. I know my accessories don't match, but the day turned out pleasantly enough. In a dress and flats or heels, a little part of me always feels like I'm masquerading as a more demure person, but sandals feel relaxed and easy.
Some field notes on the charms of a dress (with lots of stereotyping):
a) men hold doors open for you
b) men pull out chairs for you
c) men fetch drinks for you (generally, men really like dresses)
d) mothers approve
e) it's nice to feel the sun on your legs
f) they are cool to wear in the heat
g) they are versatile and go from day to evening quite easily
So, not writing dresses off yet then.
