Dresses that Work

IMG_3574

Dresses that work--it's one of our best solutions for busy moms. We love casual dresses and this new one from Lucy (

) 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.

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!
