The great unbuttoning

I had this dress on about 15 minutes when I realized why I never wear it to work. It magically unbuttons itself all. the. time. Luckily I wore a black slip thing underneath it because it’s a little see-through so when the buttons popped open at least nothing was seen. Looks like  I should have walked around in it at the store for 10 minutes longer before I bought it. Or just remembered that I need to size up on the button-up dresses to make way for my giant cans! Ha.

I love the grid pattern of this dress. It’s not really stripes, and it’s not really plaid, but somewhere in between. I decided to contrast all the squares with some dots on my legs! It was actually my intention to not wear black and white with a pop of color and this dress is actually the very definition of this. I give up! I love it too much.

In other news, this month for me has been all about baking. It’s not something that I’ve cared for in the past, because I am more of an “oh, I’ll throw some of this in there, and how about some of this?” person when it comes to cooking, and I feel like with baking that’s a game changer and you end up with flat, hard cookies. BUT, it’s kind of refreshing to measure everything out and I’m finding places where you can add a little spontaneity. Last night I made these yummy Salted Caramel Mocha Brownie Cups (although I didn’t make the frosting. I just used the frosting the brownie mix came with and added some caramel on top with some sea salt.) Anyway, I digress. Have a great rest of your week!

  1. Oh I hate it when clothes do that! Perhaps try sewing different buttons on it? Very good idea on the slip and the belt just in case (and due to the weather of course). It’s gorgeous though, I can see why you liked it so!

    Also, awesome use of prints pairing it with those super cool tights!

    All the best 🙂
