just for fun: two-weeks of dresses! join us?

I'm always complaining about not having enough summer clothes (or complaining about the ones I do have). 

But somehow I continue to ignore the fact that I own over 20 dresses.  TWENTY.  And I may have fudged that number a bit.  It could possibly be more.   

I wear them more often during the winter, but with the exception of Sundays I tend to forget to use them as a part of my wardrobe during these warmer months.  Cut-off shorts and band tee's are so much more convenient!   

Sometimes I'm deterred by a dress needing some sort of a simple alteration, or I don't have the right belt, or  the right shoes...or  they are all made from polyester and I don't want to die from heat exhaustion. Just about every excuse humanly possible has passed through my mind in order to avoid wearing these beautiful clothes.   

BUT NO MORE! I'm taking a stand...against myself.   And inviting you to do it with me!

Starting Monday August 13th, Beccy Bingham and I will be doing "TWO WEEKS OF DRESSES (or skirts)"-- she has already come up with some pretty cool outfits I am excited for you to see.  

(this is Beccy, in case you didn't already know)


You can follow us on Instagram using the hashtag "#twoweeksofdresses" and join us by using the same hashtag on your photos!  Blog about it if you want, do some Facebook posting whatever you please-- but I would love to see it!  Just leave me a comment below if you are interested in participating so I can follow you.

Slight disclaimer:  I don't spend all day in "real clothes".  In fact, I tend to spend most of my days in gym clothes...I don't have any expectations for everyone to be spending all day in a dress.  I would probably give up on this project pretty quickly if I was in a dress for 18 hours straight.   So if you see me around town in a dress, don't give me any applause.  It's probably just a 4-hour stint.  

I am looking forward to challenging myself to re-style and re-purpose some of my clothes, and excited to see what everyone else is doing!

  3. Topsy shared the word about your two weeks of dresses - genius! I'm living out of a suitcase but I realized I have at least two weeks worth of dresses and skirts which made me feel bad for thinking I had no clothes...
