A Dress for Every Occasion

I am the first to admit I'm not much of a dress girl; I am more of a t-shirt and jeans girl! For certain occasions, such as weddings, I like to dress up. We had a friend's beach wedding in February this year in Texas. When I went to find a dress, I wanted a dress that was comfortable—almost like a t-shirt dress that didn't look like a t-shirt dress. I had ordered several different ones online. This specific dress was the last one I ordered and came in the day before we were leaving. As soon as I tried it on, I know it was perfect. There are no zippers, the material is thicker and stretchy, but the best part is that it is under $25! It also comes in 23 different colors. I chose the watermelon red. My favorite part is the tie waist; you can choose how tight or loose you would like to wear it. Since we are not attending social events at this time, here are some ways to wear it now!

The versatility of how this dress can be styled is endless—starting with how to style it for an in-home date night! I paired it with some nude strappy heels and gold earrings. Simple yet sophisticated. Just add your favorite food or take out from a local restaurant!

Casual—throw on some sneakers and a ball cap. Perfect look for making that trip to the store to grab your essentials or to go for your daily walk! Plus, after we are out of quarantine, it will be great for running errands or even attending a sporting event.

Summer nights for virtual happy hour with friends out on your patio—put on your favorite flat sandals and throw your hair up!

Great option for your virtual work meetings too! It's very comfy to wear and look put-together for meetings with co-workers or clients. Later on, it will also work for fall and winter with over the knee boots or ankle booties. Pair with your favorite jacket or cardigan.

I recently purchased a sleeveless version for another retailer that works just the same and great for those hot summer nights on the your patio!
