Every girl needs a shift dress in their wardrobe. It's the MUST HAVE go-to piece for those days where you feel lazy, but it's a NECESSITY to look put together. A shift dress is my favorite way to go. Not only are they comfortable, but even if you're having a day where you're bloating, or just don't feel 100% confident with your body, this style of a dress will hide everything -- yes everything -- while still allowing you to look like a lady, not a boxy man.
Today, was my lazy day. I woke up with HUGE bags under my eyes, and a swollen feeling took over my entire face. Though I am only in High School, and don't have a career, waking up early is a struggle. So to conceal my face, I decided to do a little more with my face and put a little more makeup on to look awake. It may look like I did a lot of work, but in reality, I didn't!! The video below is my "Valentine's Day to Night Look", which includes the full makeup routine that I used today, you should definitely check it out.
In addition to doing my makeup, another aspect of getting ready that I absolutely despise some days, it picking out an outfit, when all I really want to do is stay in my pajamas and go to sleep. But none-the-less, I wouldn't be a true fashionista if I didn't have a few tricks up my sleeve on how to look chic but feel like I am in my PJ's! So for today, I decided to wear this bright printed, floral shift dress. Unlike some shift dresses that you see at stores like Francesca's, the one I am wearing is made out of cotton, allowing the fit to be simple and flattering, but also undoubtedly comfortable all at the same time.
Since the Midwest is still super chilly, I decided to put on my favorite pair of tights that my mom bought me in order to stay warm! These tights are great because they're a little more opaque, but still keep your legs warm on chilly days, without the heaviness of leggings.
To make the outfit more chic, I added 3 gold bracelets. I loved how the gold matched with the chain on my necklace. Accessories ALWAYS complete an outfit.
Clearly, I LOVE this shift dress. It's FUN. And to make the whole ensemble more comfortable, I paired my favorite booties with it! They have a chunky heel that isn't too tall, so that walking isn't a struggle. The faux suede material adds awesome texture that looks classy and stylish.
All together, I am obsessed with this look. It is one of my favorite's because I felt cozy all day, but I didn't have to sacrifice my appearance. What's your favorite GO-TO "lazy day chic" outfit? Let me know in the comments below! Post a picture too!
