Fashion Day: Wearing Dresses

Fashion Day: Wearing Dresses

If you went through my closet and my laundry, you would be able to see the numerous dresses I own.  Sadly, I don’t always wear them and for a number of reasons – no special occasion, too lazy to iron, too fancy, or just forgot about them.

Sad but true.  It wasn’t until sometime last week that I thought, “Stuff it!  Why am I waiting for THAT special occasion?  Why not just wear a dress when I feel like it?!  And iron those I really want to wear for goodness sake!”  I know, I’m weird, I have often have these internal dialogues going through my head over anything and everything.  Even something as mundane as wearing dresses.

That said, I did start to wear dresses… just because.

Wearing Dresses

It really started off with the fit n flare white with navy and green polka dots dress that I bought from my recent trip to Vietnam.  I was dying to wear this dress out and I did!  I think I also had an even to attend that morning, so really the perfect excuse to wear it.  Then I decided to keep on wearing a dress whenever I did feel like it!  Even when it did get a little chilly later on during the day.  I just put on a cardigan or my denim jacket to keep me warm.

So really, don’t let the fact that you have no where to go, stop you from wearing a dress.  I think dresses are so easy to put together as an outfit and makes you feel that bit more special too.  Strange but true.

Need inspiration? 

Need some ideas to stock your wardrobe with?  I’ve compiled a little collection below that are perfect for everyday, special occasion or just because.


Can’t get enough of stripes?  I’ve shared two that could be worn as an everyday option and if you add a few extra “somethings” you can dress up the fit n flare one easily!

^ASOS stripe skater dress $73.83, ^SurfStitch stripe t-shirt dress $32.95


Looking for a maxi dress that can take you from day to night?  The trick is in the fabric, cut and style!  These two maxis I’ve chosen can be dressed up easily simply by wearing different jewellery, shoes and even jacket if you wanted to.

Fit N Flares

You can call them fit n flares, or skater dresses, either way I love this style as it is just so feminine and girly!

Smart everyday dresses

As much as I wished these dresses could think for themselves, what I meant by “smart dresses” is the fact that you can wear this to work, play or for that smart casual outing.

Do you wait for that special occasion to wear a dress or do you just wear it when you feel like it?
