There is nothing I love more than finding the perfect lounging/book reading outfit that includes a dress and a pair of heels. After I got over my jealous fit (a bay window!), I turned to my closet. The options Lela gave were amazing (hello, did you check out that ASOS dress?!), but I'm not on that particular budget at the moment. If, like myself, you prefer to wear dresses on your days off and/or to just sit around browsing the internet or flipping through a book, you want to keep a few things in mind:
1. Choose a dress that allows for some movement. Wearing a bodycon dress is great for the clubs, but not for the couch.
2. Pick a soft, comfortable fabric. Cotton or cotton-like fabrics will keep you cool and light.
3. If you keep your apartment, house, or cove air conditioned chances are you get a little cold. Wear a cardigan or sweater over the dress. A blanket is nice for cuddling and you don't want to be caught in a Snuggie. A cardigan allows for movement and it completes the look.
4. Shoes are optional. But keep a lovely pair off to the side just in case you need to hop up and meet the friends for brunch or if you need to do some errand running.
Instead of a mesh band in the front, I chose to play up the back with a triple band!
