The gals from our Tucson Central location had a problem—full closets but nothing to wear! Summer has struck in Tucson and the higher the temperature, the harder it is to dress up. We found ourselves reaching for the same ol’ cutoffs and tee combo every day—it was becoming less of a “look” and more of a “rut”! Meanwhile, all of our beautiful dresses were languishing unloved in the back of our closets. The solution? Dress-A-Day May! We vowed to wear a dress every day in May. After setting a couple ground rules (Repeats? A-OK! Rompers? They count!), we jumped right in!
Though they somehow seem fancier than a t-shirt, we actually found dresses to be the perfect summer-wear. One piece and you have an outfit, no coordination required! They also offer endless variety. Brights and neutrals, cabana prints and graphic stripes, maxis and minis, a dress can be found for every style.
Another bonus was that we were forced to examine those tricky pieces that linger in our closets yet somehow elude actual wearing. I think we all have a couple amazing pieces that somehow we just never find the right time to wear. Well, now is the right time! Why save something special for “someday” when you can use a little something special today? Plus, if you have to wear a dress every day for a month and that little mod number still doesn’t get worn, you know it’s probably time to bring it down to Buffalo Exchange for some trade!
