So I have decided to start a new series called What I Am Wearing Today. At first I thought I would do this on a monthly basis posting what I wore each day for the entire month but I reconsidered when I realized there would be many days I was wearing my scrubby night clothes all day. Yes even as a fashion blogger I still sit around in my pajamas, consisting usually of shorts and a ragged tee. Granted I push myself to look my best most every day but one of the benefits of working from home is being able to be comfortable, wearing those jammies! I just did not want that kind of pressure!
So over the next month we will run this What I Am Wearing Today as a test and see how it is received by you the readers. Yes it is just like OOTD (Outfit of the Day), but since I am not in my 20’s I am not comfortable using the lingo and just want to say it like it is …. What I am Wearing Today:
I will admit that I did not have high expectations of this dress looking great on me. I have a rectangular body type with no real defined waistline, and I have a larger chest. I was worried that bold stripes going across my body would make me look like am oompa loompa but alas I am loving this look! This cute Glostory® Women’s Casual Striped T-shirt Summer Dress 1786 is available on Amazon, currently only $21.80 and eligible for free Amazon Prime shipping!
Above I am showing the basic dress, before accessorizing. It is 80% Polyester and 20% Cotton. A little on the heavier side weight wise with a soft feeling underside. Great for the Summer to Fall transition.
You can hand wash, machine wash, or dry clean. Personally I wash mine on gentle cycle or hand wash cycle, cold water, and hang dry. Above I have styled with nothing more than small gold hoop earrings from Anmao Jewely that come in a set of three with small, medium, and larger sized hoops that run for a mere $7.99 with free Amazon Prime shipping, gold circle necklace, white sandals, and the Grebago Women’s Genuine Leather Shoulder Bag in the first image. The bag is currently $55.00 with free shipping on Amazon. In the second and third image I have shown to simple ways to style with a scarf.

The pockets are faux, kind of disappointing since I love dresses with real pockets, but I would rather have the zipper accents than nothing as I feel it helps break up the bold stripes.
Above is my final look and the way I decided to wear my Glostory® Women’s Casual Striped T-shirt Summer Dress 1786 for today. Since I will be working inside all day, and my husband keeps our home like a freezer, I needed the sweater jacket to stay warm. I added the Golden Fleeting Bohemian Tassel Pendant Long Necklace by eManco, also available on Amazon currently for $18.99 with free Amazon Prime shipping.
If I do happen to have to run out I will of course carry my giant black bag.
