The Comfy, Classic Dress (+ Cute Shoes!)

Navy dress and fun heels - a cute (and comfy) wear to work option!

Today’s post title is brought to you by the letter C.

I’ve already talked about these shoes a decent amount (see here and here), but the general recap is that they’re pretty much the only “fun” shoes I own, and I found them at Ross for about $20. One of the many, many reasons I love Ross.

What I haven’t talked about is this dress. It’s from Delia’s (or dELiA*s, as they write it), which is typically for teenagers, but I definitely bought the dress when I was 22.

It’s possibly the most comfortable dress I own – it basically feels like I’m wearing pajamas. I even made myself a dress last summer (you can see it on Instagram here) just so I could have a second super-comfy dress in my wardrobe.

Obviously my exact dress isn’t being sold anymore, but I found a pretty similar one at Gap that I linked below!

I mentioned last week that my sister just graduated from college, but what I didn’t mention was that Luther gave families the option to stay in unoccupied dorms over the weekend. And we did it. (Sharing a triple with your parents: #glamorous.)

When I was in the bathroom getting ready for bed, an actual student came in, and she and I were chatting as we washed our faces. She asked me if I was there to watch a sibling graduate, and I was so flattered that she could tell that I wasn’t a student. Until she asked me if I was in college or in high school.

I’m about to turn 27.

I always get annoyed when I have interactions like this (seriously? high school?), but then I wonder if I could get a student discount at stores if I tried … And of course, shopping at stores for teenagers (like in the example at the beginning of this post) probably doesn’t help my “adult” image. 🙂

Anyway, thanks for reading!
