5 Reasons I Wear Dresses all the Time

The truth of the matter is that I wear dresses….a lot. Like 5 days out of 7. Maybe 6. If you know me in real, live, actual life then you know this already, but I feel it needs to be mentioned. (Update 2021 – chortling merrily. I live that Wyoming life now and live in activewear. How times change.)

I’m from (and still live in) a small smaller tiny  miniscule town. The problem with living in a repressively rural area is that anytime one wears a dress or skirt, people think you’re dressed up to go somewhere. Like a funeral. Or an appointment with your divorce lawyer, who knows. But you’re viewed with a certain level of suspicion. Seriously. Once I realized I didn’t give a flying fount what other people thought about the way I dressed, I started to have more fun with my wardrobe.

If you’ve only ever thought dresses were Sunday-goin’-to-meetin’ clothes, I’m here to tell you otherwise.

5 Reasons I Wear Dresses all the Time
1.) Instant outfit. Can’t figure out what to wear? It takes 2.8 seconds to pick out a dress and fling it over your head. Done.

2.) Hot weather is my bitch.  A dress = instant ventilation, people.

3.) If I so much as look longingly at a potato chip I will look like a pufferfish the next day. Too much salt makes me bloat, which makes wearing jeans about as much fun as getting your boob caught in a blender. A looser-fitting dress always saves the day.

4. I am a very big fan of overdressing for every occasion.

5.) I look ma-highty fine. That’s it. That’s all there is to this last one. Wearing dresses (and heels) gives me confidence. Big hair also gives me confidence. I don’t know why, but if I am feeling low teasing my hair to Dolly Parton-esque heights always helps.

There you have it. 5 reasons. Because I couldn’t think of 6.

See you later!

  1. The way you feel about dresses is the way I feel about jeans. Only you look a lot more put-together in your dresses. And your hair looks lovely in the closet photos. Makes me want to go roll my hair now.
