Summer Dress Challenge

Over the last month I have been contemplating wearing only dresses for the Summer. Why you ask?   Well one of the reasons is because I love dresses.  I loved the Era of the 40's and 50's when women wore mostly dresses, it made them stand out, they looked beautiful and feminine and confident. Not to mention dresses  are a whole lot cooler and a little easier to pick out  than trying to coordinate a whole outfit.  With that being said, I can not wear a dress to my job because I have to abide by a dress code, but any time I am not working  I am going to look into only wearing  dresses  or cute skirts and flirty blouses.  
     Now before you run off and spend a fortune on a new wardrobe, I am going to do a complete closet revamp, pulling out everything in it and re-evaluating my dress wardrobe.  Some of the dresses I have had for a long time and this is where my DIY Re-style will come in handy. Can I revamp some of my classics?  Well I guess you will have to find out over the course of the summer. If any of you want to join me in a "Summer Dress Challenge",  just follow me on Instagram and tag #WobiSobiDressChallenge.  I think it would be so much fun to see all of the beautiful dresses and get great ideas on how to revamp old ones. 

So here is the beginning of my summer dress wardrobe.. I am going to try very hard not to spend over $40 on one dress. Budget is the number one word in this challenge.  Everyone of the dresses I have in these pictures is $40 or under. Pleases do not misunderstand me, I am not saying that every once in a while you find that One dress you have to have and it just happens to be over $40, of course buy it,  but my challenge is  to try and be resourceful and stylish with out breaking the bank.  If you have old dresses or even thrift store dresses that you revamp that is even better.  So let's see what you've got and have a great time on this "Summer Dress Challenge".

Have a wonderful Monday!

  1. I'm on board! I feel the same way about wearing dresses and skirts. I own a ton!

  2. I just found your blog and I love it! I am excited to try some of your DIY t-shirt projects. I also LOVE dresses! I didn't go anywhere yesterday but a dress was my first choice. I also wear aprons when cooking so I really looked like June Cleaver while I was cooking and cleaning in the kitchen! I am going to join you in the dress challenge and wear them as often as I can. I haunt thrift shops, yard sales and the HUGE Sears Outlet near my home. I got the most beautiful dress that really hugs my curves and looks great for only $18!!! I will check back to see how your dress challenge is going.

    1. I wear aprons too. I am so happy to connect with someone who feels the same way as me. Welcome aboard Laura I can't wait to see your Dresses:)

  3. Where do you work that won't let you wear dresses?! I would have to find a new job! I haven't worn pants to work for as long as I remember. #dressesforlife
