#29: Wear more dresses

Ok, part of the logic behind this one is that I think people look cute in dresses and I think I look cute in dresses and I love wearing dresses, but they are out of my comfort zone.  I'm trying to do more things that I love that aren't in my happy rut.  Plus, I'm going to Prague this summer and all of my pictures will be twice as pretty if I am wearing a pretty frock in them.

I figure dress-wearing is something that comes with effort, so I wore a dress today.  For practice.  I know you can hardly see the dress part because of the coat, but it is still early March, and chilly despite the sunshine.  The dress is a winsome cowl-necked thing from American Apparel, and it is both austere (due to the cowl) and a bit slutty (due to the shortness, and my disinclination to wear tights).  Was I only going six blocks to get some bloodwork done?  Yes.  Did I stop at the dollar store on the way home.  Indeed.  Did I look adorable doing so?  You be the judge.

My go-to party wear is jeans and a sweater, or jeans and a tank, but the Wear More Dresses mantra lives on!  Plus I had just bought this at Target, plus it lends itself nicely to one of my favorite pasttimes: wearing too many accessories.

When will you be in Prague? It was on my list of things to do in case I get bored in England. (Flights from London to Prague are only 16 euro...)

Awesome that you get to spend some time there. Going anywhere else?

And, btw, you look cute/hawt/sweet/sexy in a dress.
