It's Day 18 into The Dress Project and I'm trying to stay resolute with my goals, but it's beginning to feel difficult when 27 more dresses seems like it will end a long time from now. But I am trying to fully appreciate what I already have, which is why I pulled out this dress today. I specifically bought it for tailgating at my college's football games in the fall --- female fans at SEC college schools usually dress up for the games, and I suppose it's a longtime Southern tradition (you can read more of my thoughts on it here).
So even though it's a day dress, I can't really see it outside of the context of football Saturdays, and so I tried to look past the school colors in it and give it another try today. I ended up like the way I styled it -- it felt feminine, flirty and a little tango-ish because of the colors. I like the matchy-matchiness of it. Instead of my usual wedge or flat, I went with a real heel today, but next time I wear this, I'll probably wear a different shoe because these felt too clunky for the outfit. Oh well, it's a learning process!
In other news, I'm a little behind on the times, but I started a twitter account for this blog (@joannssidewalk) so I could expand the dialogue and keep up with other bloggers' tweets. I have had a personal account for a while and haven't kept up with it, but am excited about my new blog one. If you feel so inclined,you can follow me there too!
