de-poshing the frock

dress - modcloth
sweater - forever 21
belt - forever 21
shoes - target

When I first showed this dress to my mom, she gave me a crooked smile and started going on and on about how incredibly impractical I am when it comes to buying clothing. My parents are very supportive of me dancing to the beat of my own style drum, but wearing all-out formal wear to go grocery shopping crosses some invisible line I guess. I insisted that I could come up with a casual outfit using this dress, but she just rolled her eyes. "Oh, come on," I pleaded, "can't you see this with a cardigan, flats and maybe a braided belt at the waist?!" But she just brushed me off and left my room.

Of course, this incident just made me super determined to do a reverse version of posh frock friday; taking my most frilly, dressy dresses and wearing them in super casual ensembles. And I think it worked pretty well! Even my stubborn mom agreed that I had managed it.. as we strolled through the grocery store ;-D

Do you want to comment, but have no idea what to say? Trust me, I've been there! So to make things a little easier, here is a question you can answer if you can't think of anything else to say! :)

Favorite aisle at the grocery store? (Mine is the frozen section!)
