Okay, so I have a couple of confessions to make.
For starters, I've not actually worn this outfit yet. Unless waking up every morning and putting it on and twirling around in it counts as wearing it. I just feel like a weirdo stepping outside in a bright, sunny maxi dress and my new denim jacket when we still have snow everywhere. I can't do that kind of injustice to this outfit. But we're having some warm weather next week (a balmy 45 degrees, guys!), so hopefully I will be able to wear this dress in public.
Secondly, I got this dress at Wal-Mart. Weird? Maybe. I got it toward the end of summer last year, after I'd spent all summer in fear of buying a maxi dress. I'd wanted one for about two years but many of my friends were vehemently opposed against them. I finally bucked up the courage last August when I saw this sunshiney little dress hanging on a clearance rack at Wal-mart. I'm pretty glad I did. It's not my favorite print in the world, but it makes me glad I bought this denim jacket, so...
Speaking of this jacket. I've also been afraid of owning a denim jacket for forever. I remember seeing a girl wear one in 2010 with a printed dress and thought she was a genius. But every time I saw a denim jacket in stores, my creative genius silenced it's voice and when I thought about what to pair a denim jacket with, all that I could come up with was, "More... denim?". Wrong. Maxi dress from Wal-mart!
But I still need a little help with this denim jacket thing. How do you wear yours?
