Dress Like a Girl {May Challenge Link up}


May is over! How did you do on the first challenge? Since I like to wear dresses/skirts, and do so frequently, I challenged myself to wear one at least once a week and I did!

(in no particular order because I have a terrible memory)

This was a spontaneous Target purchase a few years ago and I love it. It's not the most flattering from the back (think square) but it's comfy and cool.

Leggings are also from Target.

Ladies if you are concerned about dresses either do to your thighs or chasing kids around get yourself some leggings! I was slow to pick up this trend, but I am loving it! These are $8 (regular price) Mossimo Supply Leggings from Target. I have four pairs. They are cotton, comfy, and cheap. So when the thighs get to fuzzy from rubbing together (just keeping it real) I don't feel bad tossing them in the refashion bag and picking up more!


This is my favorite outfit of the month! I loved how it came together, I was comfy, and (I think) looked good and put together). This Maxi Dress was bought for a wedding. Admittedly it was too casual but I needed to be able to nurse so  it worked. I wore this to a children's play where I was sitting on the floor and needed to be able to move around. It worked great! I could get up and down and sit on the floor with out flashing anyone! Maxi Dress - another trend that I was slow to embrace on account of being short, but am now head over heels in love with.

Denim Blazer - Kohl's several years ago
Dress - Kohl's this season but it's not online anymore

I wore it with these shoes for the wedding which look so much better and don't make it drag, but not so good for chasing a little one around.


This was the first dress I wore, it was freezing that day!

Dress: I made

Sweater: Really old Gap

Necklace: Vintage


This is another Target dress, what can I say I love Target! This one too can be un-flattering at this stage of my body (postpartum, carrying extra weight) because it smooshes the girls down all funny at the top, but it's comfy.

Everything is from Target, Sweater and Leggings are Mossimo This season (sweater on clearance now!)

I actually really like the last outfit, and think you look great in it! I wish I would've thought to take photos of more than one outfit - I wear dresses a lot over the summer!

That purse is super cute! I was excited to do the challenge in the first place, but heck yeah for free stuff! :D

SO pretty! SUCH girlishness! You look beautiful in all of these, and I REALLY love the leggings idea. I'm down on the floor alot these days, and dresses don't mesh too well with that, usually -- but leggings? You're a genius :)
