Is anyone else wondering where the weeks are going??? I thought with less plans & commitments my days would feel longer. Wrong. Time slow down!
Meanwhile, I’m still having back to back days of casual looks, plus I’m finding the cooler weather is changing what I’m reaching for in the AM. My long sleeve tops are replacing my tees’ & my shorts are now tucked away – it’s all long pants from here.
This brings me to this topic I wanted to explore…
Now, you know I’m always banging on about jeans (hello my favourite thing to wear!) but I do like to give them a rest some days, so let’s talk about what we wear on these (highly!) unusual non-denim days.
Comfort is still the focus here, we’ll stick with the May 20 EDIT Style Squad theme of lounging. Let’s discover: The Dress (low-key style).
Long Sleeve Crew Neck Dress
I love a sweater dress, it is the ultimate in comfort whilst feeling a bit dressed up, cause you know, you’re in a dress and all! Lot’s to love about this dress, it comes in a size 6 -20 and it’s only $25- no natural fibres here obviously 🙁 This is also available in red for those wanting a bit more pop of colour.
Spot Midi Dress
So yes, this is a tad dressier, although I’m seeing this styled with your sneaker and a longline cardigan or a denim jacket to give it a casual vibe. Then, when the time comes tho look a little snazzy, just add an ankle boot, your leather jacket and voila, you’re ready to roll. Fab price $79.95 and size range too, XXS – XL. The fabric is a viscose, so this will suit anyone who likes a fitted style. If you are tummy conscious, just add a scarf for a little extra coverage.
Striped Ribbed Dress
I love finding sale pieces for you, and this dress is a winner such a find for $59.95! It’s a neutral, stripe ribbed dress. Style this casually with a sneaker (as per pic) and to jazz up, I’d wear a suede ankle boot and a blazer. It’s on sale and a full size range is available, so XXS – XL – unheard of!
Wool Knit Dress
This is my LUXE option thanks to Country Road, bringing the goods with their signature ‘Milano’ knit. It is a flattering cut, loads of shape without a super tight fit. The sizing can be generous in CR so be mindful of this if buying online. A bigger investment at $249.95 but I’m always happy with the CR quality.
Hooded Sweater Dress
I WANT THIS!!!! It’s black so easy wearing, it has a hood for added sporty luxe vibes and it’s $89.95 (sign up to be a Decjuba member and always receive 10% off!) Perfect for those days you literally just want to throw something on.
Short Sleeve Textured Dress
This dress is for the gals who can’t do midi lengths! Super easy to wear, a more relaxed fabric that gives you room to move (and eat extra sour-dough!) Another versatile piece to easily take you from casual to dressy (remember, shoes will always dictate how dressy you are).
Enjoy introducing the low-key dress into rotation in your wardrobe, you’re going to LOVE it!
