Bathrobe or Dress? You Make The Call!
Well, as promised, I am styling my red plaid high-low dress again, this time as a dress and not with leggings or pants. I decided to go for the all red theme, so I'm accessorizing the look with my red straw box purse and my fantastic new red booties. If it's too much red overkill for you just enjoy the beautiful Fall scenery in the background! We're hitting peak week for Fall colors right now.
In my last post about this dress, I wore it belted. Today, I decided to wear it loose. I must tell you that this dress is not "form fitting" and is quite loose and billowy. It makes it very comfortable, but I'm not sure I love the look. Especially after my husband walked in the kitchen while I was cooking dinner and said, "Is that my bathrobe you're wearing?" Ummmm, no, it's my dress thank you very much! (Men!) Anyway, I do love the loose comfy feel.
Now, let's talk about these spiffy new ankle boots. I have sworn off buying any shoes that are not comfortable and ones I can walk in for long periods of time. (No more 20 minute heels!!) I have wanted some red booties for quite a while but they are hard to find without high heels on them. I found these at Stein Mart and they are a wedge type style. I didn't know if they would work or not, so I spent a lot of time walking around Stein Mart wearing them to make sure! I got a strange look from one of the sales ladies because I was wearing the shoes for awhile but I wanted to make sure they were comfortable! The brand is Impo and the style is the Garwyn. Check out the link and you can see the shoe up close. They are on sale at a great price, plus I had an additional 20% off coupon that I used, so it was truly a win, win purchase! There is just something about red shoes that makes a girl feel like ooh la la when wearing them! Even if you are wearing them with a plaid bathrobe. Ha!
In all seriousness, though, I do think I would like this look better with black tights added and the dress belted. But, it wouldn't be nearly as comfortable. Sigh...fashion or comfort? What would you do? Hope you'll leave a comment. I love hearing from you. And get yourself some red shoes, ladies. You too will be saying, "Ooh la la!" And feel free to wear them with your bathrobe if you wish! 😉
And, here are two more photos taken on our Fall excursion this afternoon. Photo credits for these two photos go to William Ross. The photo with me is on our driveway. The mountain view is from just up our road. Photos property of Debbie Styles Life.
