C'est la vie

[30 for 30: Outfit 18]
Dress worn as tunic: H&M
Cardigan: Gap Outlet
Jeans: J Brand
Boots: Steve Madden
Coat: Old Navy

I wore my dress as a tunic today... as in, I pulled it upwards and stuffed the extra fabric under my cardigan. Genius, right? Not really. I had already signed up for the 30 for 30 challenge when I saw this striped dress at H&M, and knew that it would function as a dress, a shirt, a skirt, and a tunic. I'm not sure I'll ever wear it on its own as a dress because it's a bit too tight for my liking, but I sure am liking its versatility.

It was a super nice day out today (although still slightly chilly) so we went to have pizza and frozen yogurt. SO YUM.

Hope you guys are having a good start to your three (or two, if you're unlucky) day weekend! :)

  15. How the heck did you manage to roll up the dress without it looking super chunky under your cardigan? Magic?!?! I love how versatile you've made this dress.

  19. You and your son are so cute!I love the idea of using a dress as other articles of clothing, which is a necessity when doing the 30 for 30 (I'm doing it as well). Enjoy your day off!
