So the challenge for me was to make this dress appropriate for daytime, for teaching, and for a mild fall day.I added a long cardigan and wrapped the waist tie around the outside a la the academichic girls, gray tights, and my Minnie Mouse shoes. Ta-da! Swirly skirt dress for daytime!
I got a lot of compliments on the dress (and the shoes!) and felt pretty and comfortable all day. A no fear success!Dress: London Times via TJMaxx
