This dress looks better in real life and not like a maternity outfit, I promise. The print on this Garden Lace dress from Anthropologie is very me, old fashioned floral, but I was originally concerned with the length. Now that I have embraced leggings, I can pretty much go any length of skirt now.
On Halloween it was pouring rain during my sister's birthday lunch at a local restaurant. Despite the cold and wet, I just was not in the mood for jeans. I really wanted to float in as I mentioned before, as an artsy looking teacher lady and eat food without that pressure of a button and zipper.
Honestly, for a stormy day and a ladies lunch with family and close friends, this long blouse with leggings was fine. But I would reconsider this look for other public outings. Maybe there is a little too much leggings as pants action going on here, but when leggings are worn with a dress or skirt, it's more of a fashion do in my opinion.
My ballerina flats are my Jessica Simpson Leve style from Macys.
The floral blouse is an older Isaac Mizrahi from QVC and the necklace is an older Rachel Zoe for QVC.
The red reading glasses are part of a three pack from Costco that also come with black and brown. They have a cute rhinestone detail.
