Then I was trying to hit the (ahem, stupid) minimum, and came upon this dress again and ordered it for a song. I'm so glad I did! Love this little number.
First off, the silhouette is very flattering, especially to the bust area. It also hides a bit of tummy, without looking too maternity. I went with a small in this. The weathered wood color is gorgeous of course, and melds well with lots of similar tones, like the bronzed clay of this year, as well as cinnamon of last year. I think it's easily a summer and fall dress, but I'm trying it out for winter, layered up with tights/sweaters. I was worried it would be a thin, clingy knit, but it's not too clingy.

A fall-y outfit with this year's J.Crew Cotton-Wool Ruffled Placket Cardigan in wild mushroom (similar here in the matching weathered wood color) with my Vera boots:
Sweater open, with my Uggs:
And finally, how I'm wearing it today, cozied and super casual-ed up with my Arrow thrown over it and Uggs. It's certainly not super chic, but it's sooo comfy and DH, for some odd reason, is loving the whole look.
Have a wonderful Tuesday!!
p.s. did you score any goodies yesterday? It looks like a few of you ordered that pretty GH lace skirt. :)
