So when Mother Nature decides to visit I feel awful. I feel fat, bloated, ugly, nothing fits, I have nothing to wear, my hair freaks out…and on and on and on. So I came up with a plan over the last few years to hide all of that.

On the first few days, usually the worst of it, I wear a dress. If it has a print I don’t have to add any accessories. If it it a solid color I have to add a necklace or bracelet. During the winter I’ll add a turtleneck or sweater. Make-up must also be put on, though I do it pretty lightly – tinted moisturizer, concealer, blush, curled lashes. Those are the rules. By the end of the day I feel better.

And here’s the Casbah Dress styled from Friday. Husband and I went out and had some delicious Italian food. It was pretty warm that evening. I took the J Crew Jackie in Beechwood but never wore it.

I can’t wait to wear this dress again.

Have a great evening!
