Simplify Your Life With Dresses!

Lately I have been wanting to make my life a little easier. I am not only thinking about chopping my hair........
but I am also thinking about how I can simplify at least some of my mornings by throwing on a dress. The only problem with dresses is that they can get kind of boring. I mean, a dress is a dress, right? There are only so many ways you can wear a dress. Well, isn't that the point?!! YES! 

It is true that you can wear certain dress styles different ways but, you don't want to look like you are trying too hard. If you plan on experimenting with different ways to wear a dress, then one like this gold button ponte knit dress from Talbots in the photo below would be the style that you would want.
Here is what you could do with this dress:

1.) Wear a blouse, turtleneck or tee underneath so it looks like a jumper
2.) Wear it with leggings
3.) Wear it as is 
4.) Wear a cute cropped denim jacket over it
5) wear a fitted black leather jacket over it

The other thing you can do to make a dress look completely different is change up your footwear. I like to wear dresses (and skirts) in the fall and winter with a pair of black tights and knee high boots. Change up the look again with ballet flats for a more cute, casual fun look or wear it with ultra high black patent pumps to be a little more sexy!

Oh, and don't forget how a gorgeous scarf like this Renniel Paisley silk scarf from Talbots can really compliment a simple dress! 

Can't figure out how to wear a scarf you say? Think simple and just play with it! See my video (below) that I made a while back on simple ways to tie a scarf:

I also LOVE this blog titled Mai Tai's Picture Book. She incorporates scarf rings in many of her ties and they are just gorgeous! 

I love dresses for the fact that they are easy to just throw on and you will look instantly amazing! So, don't try too hard okay. Just have fun looking fabulous!
