I’ve never been one to shy away from wearing a dress daily, even if it’s a little overdressed. Often times I hear people saying, “I love that dress, I just wish I had somewhere to wear it”. My answer? Just wear it! I fully believe in making your own reasons to wear something. Maybe you work from home, or maybe no one around you at work prefers to dress up, or maybe you’re just a little intimated about sticking out. Don’t let that stop you from getting ready in the morning. Whenever I find myself dulling my look down because I don’t want to be ‘overdressed’, I end up wishing I had just gone with what I wanted to wear. Whenever I see someone else looks amazing, totally rocking whatever outfit that they clearly feel confident in, it inspires me and reminds me to do the same! That’s what’s so special and fun about fashion after all.
I recently bought this Self Portrait dress, and instead of waiting for an event or dinner to wear it to, I pulled it out last Monday for work. While I know that not everyone has the same ability to wear whatever they want to work, we all have those dresses or certain items that we’re always ‘saving for a special occasion’. I’m all for making any day a reason to wear something great, and I felt amazing the moment I slipped this dress on.
