Welcome to 2018, honeybees! Thank you so much for seeing me through. To kick off the new year, let’s tackle a topic that seems easy on the surface, but is actually one that almost everyone struggles with: how to look cute and classy on a day-to-day basis.
People always ask me how I manage to look so dolled up all the time, wearing dresses and whatnot. Especially when they know I balance multiple jobs and keep a smooth-running household. There are a lot of ways I could answer this:
- Because no matter what, I always want to put forth a great impression.
- Because you never know where your day might lead, and I’d rather be overdressed than underdressed.
- Because I’m just kind of a girly girl.
- Because dressing up makes me feel my best.
- Because even though they’re short, I really like showing off my legs.
And those are all true, in a sense. But the real reason? Dresses are easier. And there are plenty of plus size dress options out there.
Think about it. There’s no mixing. No matching. Just one piece, slipped over your head, and done. You only have to figure out which shoes to pair it with, and whether or not to toss in an accessory or two. And you look so put together, every time. On days when I’m running behind schedule (so, every day), this kind of grab-and-go fashion is a must have.
A classic long strand of pearls and some wide width suede open toe wedges, and my outfit is ready to go pretty much anywhere. There’s just something about looking elegant in an everyday setting that I think sets the right tone. That, combined with the minimal amount of effort, leaves me feeling energized – like I can take on whatever my schedule has in store.
