long sleeve dresses are my new favorite type of dress. after doing caroline joy’s capsule worksheets (my review of those next week! plus i might be making my own revamped version…), i realized how much i wear and love this dress.
it was labeled as a tunic but since it’s so flowy and innocent, i am able to pull it off as a dress. also, it has a slightly longer back which makes it perFECT for twirling which i do quite a bit everytime i put it on..
i splurged on this dress on sale at macy’s (ps that’s where i buy most of my free people clothing – although now i have a discount since i work for another URBN store) and it has been worth every penny. i LOVE how it’s light enough to wear in the summer to church (#airconditioning #blessup) AND i can layer it with a long cardigan or jean jacket as summer turns to fall!
the detailing on the top is so delicate and feminine – two qualities of clothing i am drawn more and more too. i love that i can wear minimal make up – maybe just a little mascara and blush – and feel put together. that’s my ideal outfit situation.
paired with my new favorite sandals that i have worn for the last month straight, it’s a winning combo! i love it with my gold hoops that i bought on a whim at the lucky brand last christmas and have quickly become a staple in my (small) jewelry collection.
this exact dress is no longer available since i bought it last may but this one is almost identical, here’s another that i love with the same lines and this tunic from anthropologie works as a dress on me so it might on you as well!
my tip with pricier items like some of these free people pieces as well as with other brands is to put them in your online “shopping basket” and wait for a sale! i have realized that with time, EVERYTHING goes on sale – just be patient. 🙂
i went ahead and did some research around the web for more long sleeve dresses for both your benefit…and mine.;)
