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

  • I broke down and went to the Loft sale! I’ve been wearing a sweater poncho that is to die for and teamed it up with some old faves. I really love your patterned tights and I know what it’s like to walk around the city for meetings in heels and boots! By the way, I adore Angie Harmon…gorgeous woman. Lucky you!

    • oh, we love LOFT. Bet you scored some great stuff.

  • I love comfortable yet stylish boots like those – and they are such a classic pair – they will never go out of style! I found a wonderful pair the other day – a wedge black boot from Gentle Souls, so so comfortable. I hope I win this giveaway, I LOVE that purse!

    • I’ve had the boots re-soled twice! That’s how often I wear them. Thanks for swinging by.

  • Feel you on the boots that are made for walking…I have a pair of Donald Pliners that I wear to death and they fit like slippers…they don’t make it to the blog that often, but maybe they should!!
    Love those tights!! So fun.

  • Those tights are so fun. I love how you get a peek between the boots and the skirt. Donald Pliner shoes are uhhh-maazzzing. So comfortable!

    • Thanks Bonnie. I thought the tights were really fun too.

  • Love every part of this outfit. I am so sad that they don’t have an online store 🙁 I am going to have to search to find something similar here in Michigan.


    • NYC has some nice little boutiques–but I bet your city does too! The small places are often ideal to score accessories.

  • I love that Lucy dress, and their shop has great stuff (I couldn’t find your dress though). Lucky you, interviewing Angie – she is a beauty. Thanks for hosting!

    • I couldn’t find the dress either. I let the company know. A miss for them to send me something out of stock!

  • That necklace is uber fabulous!

    • And it was under $100!

  • I’ve never heard of Lucy, love your dress – off to check them out!

    • Lucy primarily makes activewear–I think the dress is new.

  • Just found you through another blogger’s site! Love the monochromatic outfit, especially the houndstooth tights. Hue brand is a fave–great quality and they hold up for awhile!

    • Thanks for joining us this week. We love new contributions and look forward to checking out your style!

  • Love your dress and the way you have added pattern to a monochromatic outfit via tights! Low heels/flat boots are a city girl’s best friend!
    BTW, my husband tells me I have Angie Harmon look..(I KNOW- he may be fool in love! )LOL!
