AJ Wears :: A Gingham Dress

I call this outfit “Tablecloth Chic,” inspired by my favorite Italian restaurant, Bruno’s. In fact, this whole thing makes me want some Eggplant Parm - pro tip, get your noodles tossed in alfredo because both the red sauce and white sauce are amazing there. In fact, just get two bowls of that to dunk your bread in too.

Am I a food blogger now?

AJ Wears :: A Denim Dress

What EXACTLY do you call this dress? Jumper? Pinafore? Fancy skirt overalls? Whatever term you may choose, I randomly remembered it the other day and decided to see if it fit (a lot of old stuff is doing that lately!). I had been dreaming up this sleeve / jumper combo in my head and was delighted when it actually worked.

It also made for the perfect pairing for my new shoes, a birthday gift I bought myself when I was in NYC. No one knows how to spoil me like me.

AJ Wears :: A White Pleated Top / Dress

I’m honestly not sure how Zara intended for anyone to wear this thing. It’s marked as a top on their website, but on my 5’2” frame it’s certainly long enough to be a tunic, if not a full dress. But I do suspect they want you to wear it with pants, since the thing is entirely unlined. It’s certainly the sort of piece you’d want to wear something under - hence my black sports bra + spanx shorts situation here. The entire thing may be destined to become a bathing suit coverup one day.

What’s that? They make these things called slips, in nude and whites even so you CAN’T see what’s going on under my dress? Shhhhh. Never heard of it.
