AJ Wears :: A slouchy dress

This dress has never made the blog before, but I tend to gravitate toward it for relaxed weekend dinners when I don't want to think about what to wear. It's practically sheer and turns into a wrinkled mess after sitting down once, so it's really not a practical thing to own, but I like it anyway.

 Another piece I've worn several times but somehow have yet to blog. Yay, today's post has a theme! I wore this to a delightful dinner with friends at Brownings followed by karaoke at the Town Pump where I threw down a little Nelly. Standard.

Dress, Can't remember, seriously.

AJ Wears :: Stars and Stripes

Look, I know it's August, but why reserve the patriotic duds for holidays only? I love these wedges but didn't grab them in time for the 4th, so I decided to debut them on my own time. They're still darling, even if there's no USA holiday to celebrate.

I mean, see? Adorable. Not wearable, by any means, but just precious. And my shoes have never been the most versatile things. And why not go all the way and pair them with stripes? Happy Monday. I'm ridiculous. Look, I wore blue eyeliner.

And for your Monday bonus photo, why is this tree in my photo?????

AJ Wears :: A t-shirt dress

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).
