You know that slouchy, soft tee in your closet you always grab on the days you're feeling uninspired or icky? The comfortable cotton one, that's almost stretched out of shape completely and pilling and rubbing thin in places. The one you can't seem to get rid of until you replace it...and even then, it'll probably become a sleep shirt or workout top.
That's how I feel about this dress. It's not particularly shapely or flattering (minus the color, which I look totally awesome in thanks to my matching eyes) but it's comfortable and familiar. I used to belt it to combat the baggy shape, but now I welcome the shapeless way it hangs, particularly for sticky summer afternoons.
Of course, bold accessories like studded gladiators and a tassel necklace help me from feeling like I'm wearing a sleep shirt in public. Although...basically....I am. And that's why I love it.
Dress, Old Navy (SO OLD, WOW).
