Finally! Sunshine!!! I am so grouchy when I don’t see the sun for days. And I really hate the rain. I know…blasphemy when we need it so badly, but I love to be outside and feel the sun on my face (through lots of SPF of course…). Anyway, here are some better pictures of the Sunja Link dress I’ve been waxing poetic about lately. I’ve worn it quite often since I got it; it’s so easy to just throw on, and look relatively pulled together. And I love the print – it’s a very “Grechen” print 😉
I tried the small also when Jillian first offered to send me something, and I liked that there wasn’t quite so much “extra” fabric around my middle in that size, but it was a little snug at the neck, and narrower at the bottom, thus harder to walk in. The medium is bigger, more comfortable overall, and definitely easier to walk in. It’s still a little narrow, but that’s the cut of the dress, and doesn’t bother me at all.
I don’t normally wear it with these shoes, but since they are what Sunja Link styles them with, I thought why not? And I love them with it, they give just a little height, and make it look ever so slightly more chic. I don’t wear these shoes as often as I’d like to because they’re just a teeny bit big, and slide off my heel when I walk. I’ve tried the heel stickers, but those don’t work, has anyone tried a full insert to help with shoes that are just a little too big? Any other suggestions?
And I know what you’re thinking, there’s a lot of fabric, and perhaps it’s a little long on me. But I LIKE the midi length; it is more “modern” to me right now, and interesting. I also like the way it looks. I reserve the right to hem the dress shorter if I want to in the future, but for right now, I’m happy with it as is. It’s big. And I’m short. I don’t feel that obligation anymore to dress in a “flattering” way, or in items that suit my “body type/stature” – I wear what I want. (see also, “how to get your body caftan ready for summer“).
Oh, and I am definitely, absolutely, 100% getting my hair cut. Screw this growing it out thing. I am tired of pulling my hair back all the time, and that’s all I do, between Pure Barre nearly every day, and walking Dagny in the afternoons. I like my overall look when my hair is shorter, just above my shoulders, and it’s much cooler. Hopefully I can get an appointment this week…I’m over it!!
Happy Monday !!
