Dresses that Work

Dresses that Work
Dresses that work–it’s one of our best solutions for busy moms. We love casual dresses and this new one from Lucy (www.lucy.com) is ideal for travel or simply for slipping on for a day where you need to look more polished that jeans, but still yearn for comfort.

A few weeks ago I had a packed day. Drop off for the girls, then a few biz appointments including an interview with Angie Harmon (click here). I walked about 6 miles, so I need a outfit that could move with me. Plus it needed to work with boots that were made for walking. This pair is 5 years old and from a shop in Paris. Total score on that shopping trip.

I decided to debut the dress that Lucy.com sent me–it’s a great synthetic material that is soft and not crunchy. The dress came with a belt that was WAY too high for my body. So I cut it off and added a wide braided. Then I layered on some cool printed tights from Hue (click here for a similar pair from Hanes).

The necklace is from Olive & Bettes a great NYC boutique (sorry they don’t sell online).  On a recent trip to my daughter’s optometrist I stopped into the UES shop. I fell in love with the necklace. It works with all the navy, gray, chocolate and black in my closet. I think the outfit came off pretty well. Though Angie liked my nails most–I had on a chocolatey-black color from Essie. And boy is she tall!

Now we want to hear from you ladies. What do you put together this week? Was it a new look or a twist on a favorite? Leave a comment and join the fun.

 

Momtrends was not paid for this post. We did get the dress to style from Lucy.com
