a sort of uniform



Part dress, part jammies. At least that is what this dress feels like to me. Like many gals I am a sucker for blue & white stripes. So despite already having a dress almost juuuuuust like this, I couldn't resist this one when I saw it at Anthropologie. Whereas in the winter the work uniform tends to lean heavily on the yoga pants, the summer work uniform leans heavily on long soft maxi dresses. Although I am a sort of short 5'5 I love maxi dresses, I know they likely make me look even shorter, but somehow I feel tall in them.

Also, I know that it is sort of nerdy to smile in these outfit photos, but believe me, I look sort of awful in photos when I do not smile, so despite it not being terribly cool to smile, it's better than the alternative, so nerd it up I will.

Also...the shop's SALE SECTION has been freshly stocked! Check it out HERE.

lovely dress! i just bought a navy & white stripe one.
maxis are so comfy and I too feel they make you feel taller, even though you may be shorter :)

if smiling isn't cool, i don't want to be cool.

I would have never guessed that you were 5'5, you always look way taller in your photos. I just bought a maxi dress this last week and being 5'4 I thought the same thing, but it feels like it works, I hope it looks the same way:)
