It has been a long time since I’ve put on a dress.
There have been no recent weddings or special occasions. No spring trips to Keeneland. No formally fancy plans, so I’ve been getting away with blouses on blouses and pants on pants, but it was time to bust out a dress.
And while I have not been wearing all that many dresses lately, that has not meant I’ve stopped adding them to my collection. This little floral swinger has been hanging on a hanger, beggin’ to be taken for a twirl. So even though the evening was rainy, and I still had to pair with a jacket, I decided I was rocking a dress and some heels to a fun happy hour because I simply wanted to, gosh darn it. Planning to live more by that mantra come this summer – wear something (particularly a dress or a skirt) because I feel like wearing it, not because an occasion calls for it.
