I purchased the dress featured in this post in high school. Yep, you read that correctly–high school. Loft used to be one of my favorite stores back then (and after a brief hiatus, is again). And if I remember correctly, I even wore it to my senior year lake day as a cover up…I tried to find a picture, but unfortunately, it was the days before constant cell phone use and instagrams. You’ll just have to take my word for it!
You can’t tell in the photo, but the dress actually has spaghetti straps, and so I’ve struggled for years with ways to get more use out of it. The length is also a little awkward–perfect for work, but too long for what I would normally wear on a daily basis.
So, after years of sitting in my closet but never quite wanting to throw it away, I think I’ve finally figured out a way to style to that’s more appropriate for my profession and lifestyle. A little chambray solves everything these days, right?
