Anthro dress and jacket
Although dresses aren't a part of Jewish Girl's current round of "Use It or Lose It," I think my participation in the challenge has me reviewing my closet with renewed scrutiny. One of the garments currently in limbo is this Rainforest Morning Shirtdress. When I bought it, I did so because the fabric matched the lining of a jacket (the Two-Paths Trench). I envisioned a chic and 1960s-inspired skirt suit with a quiet lining surprise. And I noticed that since employing that admittedly-silly purchase rationale, I've rarely reached for it. This week I decided that I should wear it, giving myself the chance to decide if it wows me or not. In the past I've styled it with a belt and bare legs or black pieces and black tights. This time I decided to pick up the grey in the print with lighter tights and no belt.
I intended to consider the dress apart from the coat that inspired its purchase. But it seemed that I couldn't help but make the pairing on a brisk morning. I'm still undecided about the dress. What do you think?
